The cheese is bad enough. And then they have to go and individually wrap it!

Poison oak is a natural plant
Why don’t you put some in your food
Natural food
I don’t care if there’s chemicals in it
Is long as my lettuce is crisp
Preservatives might just be preserving you
I think that’s something you missed
Ya you missed it

Yep, one of the better processed cheeses. I stopped eating them decades ago, but I remember them well. According to Wikipedia:

Ingredients: milk, whey, milk protein concentrate, milkfat, sodium citrate, contains less than 2% of calcium phosphate, whey protein concentrate, salt, lactic acid, sorbic acid as a preservative, cheese culture, annatto and paprika extract (color), enzymes, vitamin d3.
That's pretty much cheese, with some other stuff.

Woe is me. Now I can no longer get my daily dose of artificial chemicals (pun intended). Next Diet Coke is going to say they will no longer use artificial sweetners. Disaster!!!

Anybody who says it’s cheese ought to be required to disclose his relationship to the manufacturer of this edible plastic, its subsidiaries, distributors, marketers and hired law firms.

Stopped buying KRAFT cheese a few years ago when the company suddenly began adding Natamycin to all its “natural” cheeses as a preservative. So they would have a shelf life of four thousand years. Turns out Natamycin is an antibiotic used to treat fungal eye infections. Ecccch. I used to love their large bars of Cracker Barrel cheese. Now I buy Cabot brand made in Vermont. No Natamycin. KRAFT is a mess. Strange products. Stranger ingredients.

Very true. You have to get the "American or Deli" type for 'real' Cheese....Which costs nearly twice as much. It IS alot better though.

“It’s not. It a “cheese product” or “cheese food”, whatever those are.”

Basically they take vegetable oil and whip it, add some artificial colors, and artificial flavors.

Agreed, if they need to tell you it's "food", don't eat it.

After they banned DDT American vegetables and many dairy products lost much of their real flavor. It's no wonder our foods are so bland today.

Another corporate buzzword I watch out for is "product". ....If you can stand it, call Pizza Hut and order a Pizza with Hamburger for one of the toppings. They will read it back to you as "beef", and you can't get them to say Hamburger. Always made me wonder what their idea of "beef" actually is.

Better watch out, Preservatives might just be preserving you

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE
Eat Starch Mom Lyrics
Songwriters: Kaukonen, Jorma; Slick, Grace;

He's just an American boy
And he loves his machine
No back-talk from a machine
When was the last time a television set
Gave you shit about who you met last night?
No back-talk machine

If your motor doesn't turn over smooth for you
You don't feed it right
Give it a little grease
Give it a little gas

Drive straight on through the night
Man-made mechanical mover
Love your machine
You say nothing’s right but natural things
Ah, you fool
Poison oak is a natural plant

Why don't you put some in your food?
Natural food
I don't care if there's chemicals in it
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
As long as my lettuce is crisp

Preservatives might just be preserving you
I think that's something you missed
Ya you missed it
Man-made mechanical mover
I love his machine
He's just an American boy
And I love his machine

Smooth moving steel
Keep your engine warm and wet
Be friendly to your steel
Feed it right, your mechanical pet
Then get behind the wheel
Put a little starch in the old Corvette

Then give it a feel
Smooth moving steel, give it a feel
Man-made mechanical mover
It'll move faster than you can
Vegetable lover

I cannot speak to what they use today, but in the early '80s the beef topping were little frozen pellets. There was certainly beef in it, as well seasonings and some chemicals. As the stuff was frozen I don't know what the chemicals did. The beef pellets looked the same as the pork pellets (which is NOT the same as the Italian sausage).

In our store it was not a standard menu topping, and was mainly used for the meat sauce for the spaghetti and cavatini (Pizza Hut macaroni dish), but you could request it. Those who requested hamburger would be offered meatballs, which were beefy enough, but definitely of the frozen school cafeteria variety, but much better than the canned Chef-boy-ardi type.

If all the artificial components are removed from Kraft Cheese-like Substance Slices there will be nothing left but the wrapper.
