WASHINGTON, Oct. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 21: AMERICAN CHEESE MONTH
Profile America — Sunday, October 21st. You can see it in your refrigerator, on the shelves in your favorite supermarket, and in ads on television. Americans love cheese, ranging from sophisticated French recipes to cheeseburgers. That's why this is American Cheese Month. Across the U.S., in small towns and large cities, cheese lovers will be treated to tastings, introduced to new cheeses, and learn new ways to enjoy old favorites in special classes and new meals at local restaurants. Each year, Americans eat an average of almost 33 pounds of cheese. Our favorites include American, cheddar, Italian and mozzarella. You can find current data on the country's economy — on the go — by downloading the new "America's Economy" mobile application at www.census.gov/mobile.
