It's a day that hits home for Wisconsinites. Jan. 20 is National Cheese Lover's Day and one website made a list of the best cheeses for every occasion. Let's see if you agree.

Ranker asked over 10,000 users to vote on the best cheeses overall, in grilled cheese and of the hard and soft varieties. Here's what they said.

The very best kinds of cheese:

  1. Mozzarella
  2. Parmigiano Reggiano
  3. Sharp Cheddar
  4. Brie
  5. Swiss cheese

The best cheese for a grilled cheese sandwich:

  1. Cheddar Cheese
  2. Montery Jack
  3. Mozzarella
  4. Pepper jack cheese
  5. Provolone

The best hard cheese:

  1. Parmesan
  2. Cheddar
  3. Parmigiano Reggiano
  4. Gouda Cheese
  5. Gruyere cheeese

The best soft cheese:

  1. Brie
  2. Camembert
  3. Mozzarella
  4. Feta
  5. Goat cheese

The cheese snob in us is shaking its head at some of these responses (I mean..provolone.. in a grilled cheese?!), but the majority has spoken. So, however you choose to celebrate the holiday, make it a cheesy one.
