You are correct! This traditionally Southern Italian cheese made originally from buffalo’s milk is known to be the world best-selling cheese! Mozzarella cheese of several kinds is used for most types of pizza and several pasta dishes. 

This Italian hard cheese is well-known around the world as the “King of Cheeses”, yet it is not the best-selling cheese in the world!  

Originated in the English village of Cheddar, this cheese is the most popular cheese in the UK!

Though known as one of the world’s most popular cheeses, this Netherland’s cheese is not the best-selling one.

Despite the popular belief, mice don’t like cheese! Given a choice, they would go for sweets or carbs! They would still eat cheese of course but it does not necessarily mean they love it. 

Yes, the holes in the cheese are actually caused by the bacteria that turn milk into cheese. One of the bacteria, namely P. Shermani, releases carbon dioxide and forms bubbles in the cheese. These little air pockets cause holes of the cheese. 

Temperature is of utmost importance in making cheese, however, it is not the main reason that causes holes in the cheese! 

Maturing time is one of the key factors in making cheese, however, it is not the reason you are looking for!
