White vs. Yellow Cheddar

Would You Rather Eat White or Yellow Cheddar?

White vs. Yellow CheddarBefore you answer this question, consider where you're from, because your choice may be predetermined based on where you live. At the Fancy Foods Show, we learned from the cheese reps that, while the Coasts prefer white cheddar, Midwesterners heavily skew in favor of yellow cheddar. "We'll show them a white variety, and they'll say, 'No, where's the cheddar?'" a Wisconsin dairy expert told us. Readers, tell us: is this correct?

West coast and while I like them both, I'd pick white over yellow. My restaurant has a Mac and Cheese made with white cheddar, it's divine :)

Normally I'd agree with you in terms of cheese Snarky...I love both white and yellow cheddar. And most cheeses I am quite fond of. Even the stinky kinds. But I just can't eat swiss cheese. Sometimes if it's melted with other cheeses. But unmelted swiss cheese on a cracker? No way.

I like both too! White for elegant preparations, but an extra sharp orange cheddar is really good sandwiched between two pretzels.

I'm from the midwest, having lived in OH, WI, and IL, and I can tell you, i always choose white cheddar over yellow. I know it supposedly tastes the same, but i think the white tastes a teeny bit better.
