It is the main ingredient of the dishes that the majority of people from all over the world enjoy eating. Few examples of these are bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, cheese dog, cheese fries, cheesecakes, mozzarella sticks, nachos, and most importantly, pizza. People who are wine enthusiasts even pair their drinks with cheese, making us consume more cheese product in the process.
