Celebrated annually on June 4, National Cheese Day is dedicated to enjoying all the cheesier things in life. Aside from eating cheese, you can also celebrate the day by learning a bit more about the food as well. You probably didn’t know that the average consumption of cheese in the United States is about 34 pounds per person or that there are over 2,000 varieties of cheeses world wide?
