Confession Time

I love American Cheese.

There. I said it.

I don't care how plebeian it makes me. I love real cheese, too; don't get me wrong. But one of my very favorite snacks for my entire life has been a slice of Kraft Singles folded lengthwise into fourths.

Yeah, I did say "real cheese"... because technically speaking, American cheese isn't really cheese. It does have cheese IN it, but it's processed with other stuff to give it the desired texture and melty-ness.

Cheese is a marvelous invention. But I'm no snob about it. I do like Gouda and Gruyere and Gorgonzola. I also like Velveeta, Kraft Singles, and even the pressurized cans of squirty-cheese.

I'm proud to be an American, yessir!
