Before we get too far with this cheese-off, I have to admit that the whole idea seemed a little hilarious to me. Do people really confuse processed cheese with “real” cheese? Can they not tell the difference? I mean, you can tell which cheese is the processed slice above just by looking – it’s the one with the plasticky shine to it.
We had Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Squares in the pantry (their version of Triscuits) and I totally forgot we had grapes in the fridge, so instead of a cheese snack tray, I kind of just ended up with cheese and crackers. Which isn’t bad at all. I went to Vons for this cheese trip, but all I really found were pre-sliced packages of cheese – does Sargento even make block cheese? I picked up some baby swiss, sharp cheddar, muenster, and then “American” slices.
