I have to admit…a bar of Cracker Barrel Cheese (Extra Sharp Cheddar) was one of my favorite cheeses growing up. Like cheese, while I aged, my tastes changed. I love lots of Cheeses and am almost ready to taste any unless they smell like feet. See below for the most loved and most hated cheeses on this National Cheese Day.

A study published in the US National Library of Medicine reveals that cheese is as addictive as drugs. Cheese pizza is the most addictive food because it contains casein. During digestion, casein releases opiates.
Dietitian Cameron Wells tells MIC: “Casomorphins really play with the dopamine receptors and trigger that addictive element.”
