We can’t even pick our favorite!

There’s no denying that the majority of us enjoy any cheesy dish on the menu. Whether it’s chicken strips dipped in warm and gooey cheese, cheese-flavored crackers, or even a cheese-infused dessert, everything’s just better with our favorite dairy.

We may have our own favorites from varieties like mozzarella, parmesan, gouda, raclette, and so on, but cheese is cheese and unless you’re lactose intolerant, there’s no reason to say no to it.

So take a look at our newest curated list of some of the cheesiest food to munch on this 2017!
