Today is National Grilled Cheese Day.  So if you needed an excuse to shove buttered bread and melted cheese in your face, you've got one.

According to a new survey, only 13% of Americans DON'T like grilled cheese sandwiches.  87% said they do.  And it's our SECOND favorite cheesy food behind pizza, but ahead of macaroni and cheese and cheeseburgers.

Our five favorite cheeses to use on a grilled cheese are cheddar, American, Swiss, provolone, and pepper jack.  And half of us like to use at least TWO different types when we make a grilled cheese.

Another new survey also revealed just how much we love cheese in general . . .

87% of people in that survey said they'd rather give up either coffee, chocolate, or booze before cutting cheese out of their diet.

90% would eat cheese multiple times every day if it wasn't bad for them.

And 66% said that if the area they live in suddenly BANNED cheese, they'd move.
