Well, Cheddarhead and Cheesehead can be used interchangeably to describe a Packer Fan and a Wisconsinite in general. Comes from the habit of wearing Foam wedges of Cheese (typically looking like a Yellow colored Swiss) at Packers Games. I think the term "Cheesehead" Started as an insult from Flatlanders (a nickname for people from Illinois) and it was adopted. Wisconsin no longer makes the most milk in the US but has now become a Major Cheese manufacturing area. Home of Colby (From Colby Wis.) and Limburger.

Chedder makes it better. Chedder is on every thing you could think to put cheese on and some you would not think to put cheese on over here. So yes you were correct in your assumption.

Oh but you need to try proper cheddar - the stuff you get in the supermarkets doesn't come close
Personally - i like cheese, wensleydale with cranberries is my favourite with crackers, but cheddar for sandwiches,cooking, toppings.

Oh yes, Cheddar is very popular. In Wisconsin you'll find it used in everything from Burgers (of course) to Deep Fried Cheese Curds (Yet another Wisconsin specialty but is also been known in Minnesota), to such simple things as munching on either white or yellow cheese curds. Note that you know that you have fresh cheese curds when the "Squeak" when you bite them. After a few hours some of the proteins break down and you lose the squeak.

Edit to add:

Here is some more info concerning Cheesehead regalia.
