Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Cheese

The age old myth that cheese gives you nightmares has finally been 
laid to rest this week following the release of a new study carried 
out by the British Cheese Board. 

The in-depth Cheese & Dreams study, a first of its kind, reveals that 
eating cheese before bed will not only aid a good night's sleep but 
different cheeses will in fact cause different types of dreams....

Different Cheeses for Different Dreams 

Red Leicester proved to be brilliant for helping participants to get 
a good night's sleep – one quarter slept well every single night of 
the study, and 83% of all nights under the influence of Red Leicester 
were good sleep experiences. As for dreams, Red Leicester is the 
cheese to choose if you are feeling nostalgic about your past – over 
60% of participants eating this cheese revisited their schooldays, or 
long-lost childhood friends, or previous family homes and hometowns.
Stilton-eating participants enjoyed their sleep too – over two thirds 
had good sleep experiences during five out of the seven nights. 
However, if you want some vivid or crazy dreams, the King of British 
cheeses is the one for you – particularly if you are female. While 
75% of men in this category experienced odd and vivid dreams, a 
massive 85% of females who ate Stilton had some of the most bizarre 
dreams of the whole study – although none were described as bad 
experiences. Highlights included talking soft toys, lifts that move 
sideways, a vegetarian crocodile upset because it could not eat 
children, dinner party guests being traded for camels, soldiers 
fighting with each other with kittens instead of guns and a party in 
a lunatic asylum.
British Brie caused all participants to sleep very well, but dreams 
varied between males and females; women tended to experience very 
nice dreams, such as Jamie Oliver cooking dinner in their kitchens, 
or relaxing on a sunny beach. By contrast, the men who ate Brie 
experienced rather odd, obscure dreams, such as driving against a 
battleship, or having a drunken conversation with a dog.
If you are thinking of changing career, or just suspect there could 
be a slightly more ideal job out there, snack on a lump of creamy 
Lancashire before bed and you might get some guidance; two thirds of 
all Lancashire participants had a dream about work – but only 30% of 
these involved the participants' real-life occupations. One ambitious 
dreamer saw herself as a successful Prime Minister - one of her 
popular reforms involved teaching useful finance in schools, 
including how to choose the right mortgage.
Cheddar -eating participants tended to dream of celebrities, ranging 
from the participant's family sitting in a pub with Jordan, to a 
Glaswegian old firm football match with Gazza and Ally McCoist. 
Ashley from Coronation Street also featured, as did the cast of 
Emmerdale - and one lucky girl helped to form a human pyramid under 
the supervision of Johnny Depp.
However, if you just want a good night's sleep without too many 
dreams, then choose lovely crumbly Cheshire . In this category, over 
half of all nights were dreamless, while participants stated that 76% 
of all Cheshire-induced sleeps were either "quite good" or "very
