Is there a best cheese in the world? We’re not too sure about that. For one, cheese is incredibly versatile. From super soft fresh mozzarellas to the funkiest of Stilton to creamy and nutty Gouda, there’s just too much going on to call one better than another. Still, there are cheeses that transcend culture and place to become almost universally beloved. The cream of a creamy crop.
We figured it was high time to find out which cheese people truly love most. So we popped over to Ranker to find out what kinds of cheese people are really into. After nearly 75,000 votes a very clear top ten emerged and, we gotta say, it’s hard to argue with the list. So rather than bicker, we decided to share our favorite types for each cheese to make the top ten.
Did your favorite cheese make the cut? You’re going to have to scroll down to find out.
