Brits argue about what the top tier cheese is – and some favour Dairylea
14th December 2022

Cheese is much loved food among many globally – especially to Brits.

The block of lactose goodness features as a staple in sandwiches and is often the focal centre piece of a good Christmas buffet.

Despite many agreeing the delicacy is a great bite, this bunch of people have fallen out about what the best British cheese is.

And, you may be surprised at what many deem to be the top tier type.

"What is your favourite type of British cheese?" one posed a question to Reddit.

They gave their verdict on the Ask UK subreddit, and wrote: "I could happily dispatch slices of Red Leicester until the end of time. How about you?"

Some agreed with the original poster's choice.

"This question is making me short circuit", a user replied. "At a push I would say Red Leicester, but in my heart of hearts the only correct answer is 'all the cheese'."

Another user added: "There's a really strong, matured Red Leicester sold under the brand name of Red Fox.

"If you can find that you will think you've died and gone to cheesy heaven."

While a third agreed: "Going to have to with Red Leicester myself."

Someone else declared: "Red Leicester is the Queen of Cheeses! Sparkenhoe is awesome, but I tried a Snowdonia wax covered red Leicester which tasted of red Leicester AND chutney."

But, Red Leicester was not the winning cheese for everyone.

This user argued: "Stilton. Best cheese in the world."

A second said: "Wensleydale with cranberries!" However, was quickly bashed by another cheese lover. "Fruit in cheese is an abomination", someone argued back.

Meanwhile, another Brit wrote: "Gun to my head, Wensleydale and cranberry or smoked cheddar but any cheese (except blue) is welcome in my belly at any time."

"I like Dairylea", a fourth admitted.

Whereas some Brits noted that there is no wrong answer to the cheesy debate.

One expressed: "There is no wrong answer here. Cheese is life."

"Cheese. Just all the cheese!"
