American Cheese Disguised as Sharp Cheddar
I purchased a package of Crystal Farms Sharp Cheddar cheese singles at the grocery store expecting the cheese to be actual sharp cheddar.
At home I opened the package and unwrapped a slice to throw on a sandwich. Right after unwrapping, the top half of the cheese flopped over onto itself in my hand. Real sharp cheddar slices are solid, not flimsy.
I took a bite. Expecting the tanginess that sharp cheddar has, with its nutty, almost meat like flavor, my taste buds were gobsmacked when none of these criteria were met.
I flipped the package over to read the ingredients. The first ingredient of this package of sharp cheddar cheese: American cheese. Wait. What?
False advertising or dumb consumer? Probably both.
