It’s no secret that cheese is the best food in the history of the universe, but not all cheeses are created equal. Some are life-changing (oh hey, fresh mozzarella) while others are lame (ahem, cottage cheese). So we decided to make a definitive ranking of 34 kinds.
Every Kind of Cheese, Ranked from Ew to OMG
27. Humboldt Fog
Don’t worry: It smells worse than it tastes.
Amazing in small doses.
19. Monterey Jack
Making all of our quesadilla dreams come true.
Dill is optional (but highly recommended).
Fontina’s smoother (but slightly smellier) sister.
On every sandwich for the rest of our lives, please.
The tasty star of our fondue parties.
11. Pecorino Romano
You haven’t lived until you’ve eaten cacio e pepe smothered with Pecorino Romano. You just haven’t.
Mmm, the meltiest.
9. Grana Padano
It’s Parmesan’s super-classy cousin.
Like Swiss, but a million times more flavorful.
Baked: the greatest holiday recipe that we secretly eat all year.
Melt it, eat it cold, shred it on bread and bake it…this cheese is basically perfect.
Slice it thin and pair it with fruit--it’s pretty much the best summer snack ever.
The sharper the better. Especially on BECs.
Hands down, the best food in the universe. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some night cheese to work on.
