Sliced processed cheese voted the UK's favourite cheese
Does it even count as cheese?
A study conducted by takeaway platform Foodhub has revealed that slice process cheese is actually the UK's favourite. Though this cheese comes in a plastic coating, the product itself also tastes like plastic which has earned it the nickname 'plastic cheese' throughout much of the UK.

A staggering 40 per cent of adults voted for plastic cheese as their favourite, here's the top 10:
- Processed Cheese slice- 40%
- Cheddar - 33%
- Mozzarella - 20%
- Red Leicester - 19%
- Halloumi - 18%
- Brie - 17%
- Stilton - 15%
- Parmesan - 14%
- Feta - 14%
- Double Gloucester - 13%
Ardian Mula is a Foodhub spokesperson and said: "We already know that Britain loves its cheese. However, we're surprised at how well received the processed cheese slice has been.
"A lot of people turn their nose up at this product but, our research clearly shows it is the nation's favourite.
"Clearly much of this comes from the fact we love it on burgers and sandwiches."

The sheer blasphemy to place cheese slices over the likes of Brie, Halloumi, and Feta is beyond shocking and paints a pretty dire picture of the UK's palette. For comparison, if we venture into Europe, the cheese choices are undeniably more admirable.
In Italy, Parmigiano Reggiano takes the top spot with 44 per cent of the vote, followed by Mozzarella, Grana Padano, Gorgonzola, and Pecorino.
Even in America, where sliced cheese originated, Cheddar still beats them out for the top spot. Other entries include Pepper Jack, Mozzarella, Swiss, and Colby Jack.
We can argue all day long about what is wrong with this country, but besides GB News, a corrupt government, and institutional prejudice, plastic cheese might be the next big issue.
The UK has a lot of explaining to do.
