American Cheese Disguised as Sharp Cheddar

Apr 03, 2009 by Visual Recipes | Filed in Product Complaints | 1 Comments

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.
