I got all excited when I first saw the new Kraft Make Something Amazing commercial. Yay, someone is actually encouraging us to cook real food from scratch! How exciting! And then I watched the commercial more closely. Despite the twee song by Canadian indie band Mother Mother and the sun-drenched shots of families and hipsters frolicking around their kitchen playing with food, what did I spy? Lots of American cheese slices.
Harrmumph, a commercial for processed cheese foods disguised as a commercial for cooking? Okay -- fine, I think I caught a few shots of bags with grated REAL cheese in them. I guess we could consider this an improvement over America's history with cheese. But let's take a walk down memory lane to recall some of America's most infamous cheez-like food products.
Do you eat processed cheese products or do you prefer "real" cheese?
