Asda Cheese Sales Increase as British Taste For Cheese Grows
A recent survey by Asda reveals that 54% of Brits prefer to end their meals with a cheese course instead of a traditional dessert. As a result, Talkingretail.com reports on the tremendous growth in sales of festive cheeses during the Holiday Season.
Asda is seeing cheese sales go “through the roof” in the run-up to Christmas as Brits splash out on traditional cheeses such as Cheddar and Stilton as well as more unusual, festive choices including fudge and butterscotch and Christmas pudding flavours.
The changing-face of the British cheeseboard shows that over two-thirds (69%) of cheese lovers will have at least four different cheeses on their cheeseboard this Christmas. This contrasts to 10 years ago when Brits on average had three cheeses, typically Stilton, Cheddar and Brie in comparison’s to today’s selection, which includes a fourth flavoured variety.
