Cheddar cheese is a relatively hard, off-white, sometimes “sharp” (i.e., acidic)-tasting, natural cheese.
They originate in the British village of Cheddar in Somerset.
Cheeses of this style are produced beyond this region and in several countries around the world.
Cheddar is the most popular type of cheese in the UK, accounting for 51% of the country’s £1.9 billion annual cheese market.
It is also the second-most-popular cheese in the US, with an average annual consumption of 10 lb (4.5 kg) per capita.
The United States produced approximately 3,000,000,000 lb in 2014, and the UK 258,000 long tons in 2008. (source)
