Today, January 20, is that most glorious of holidays, National Cheese Lover’s Day, a day set aside to pay tribute to the greatest food on Earth and those of us who love it. And to mark the sacred occasion, Whole Foods is offering a discount on cheese. Today only, the supermarket chain is giving 20 percent off all of its organic cheeses. Whole Foods offers between 250 and a thousand different cheeses in-store, and many of them are organic (and therefore eligible for the 20 percent discount). So whether you’re in the mood for something soft and fresh, something hard and crumbly, or something that manages to simultaneously smell terrible and taste amazing, you’ll probably be able to find a cheese that makes you happy. And what better way is there to commemorate the love, comfort, and unadulterated joy that cheese brings into our lives every day? Clearly, the best way to say, “Cheese, you complete me” is to eat it in large quantities.
Whole Foods Market has also released a video to celebrate National Cheese Lover's Day, featuring close ups of gooey grilled cheese sandwiches, mac and cheese, and pizza. If there’s such a thing as “cheese porn,” I’m pretty sure this is it:
