the above writeups are the opinion
of people who have not had real american cheese
, but only the Kraft
Variety of Cheese Food
and Imitation Cheese
s which are labeled as American
Cheese. While these plastic wrapped singles of cheese like stuff do actually contain
cheese, they are not in fact american cheese. They are a blended mixture of cheeses and additives
designed to give a taste similar
to american cheese.
If you go to a real deli or cheese shop and ask for American Cheese, you will not get plastic wrapped molded squares of processed cheese. You will get real American Cheese, which bears a mildly similar flavor to Kraft Singles, only much much better and with actual flavor. So please, before you write off american cheese, at least try the real thing.
