Wisconsin’s Most Googled Cheese Isn’t Cheddar, Same For Illinois
Well, this is awkward. I found a list of the most Googled cheeses in each state and Wisconsin's isn't cheddar. If that weren't surprising enough, I've never even heard of Illinois'. Maybe I need to explore the deli section a little more. By the way, if you guessed cheddar for Illinois, you're wrong.
It churns out Wisconsin's most Googled cheese is actually muenster. A cheese with a bland flavor that's not too exciting but loved by Wisconsinites, apparently. And, Illinois often searches for a "runny" cheese with a "white bloomy rind", according to cheese.com. Yeah, they lost me at runny. The only running cheese I'm consuming is a melted cheese.
