I know it's not the case ,but it seems that I been eating Kraft individually wrapped cheese slices for most of my life. I am not even sure that I thought about other kinds of American cheese. Now there are certainly lots of cheeses with more flavor that I like, but a slice of processed American cheese on a burger isn't a bad treat. It's also inexpensive and something that's easy to always have on hand.
The other day I was in a strange grocery store and happened to grab a regular pack of Kraft slices. They were not individually wrapped. I decided to sample the cheese on some crackers. I was pretty amazed, The non individually wrapped slices tasted better and had a more cheese like texture.
I put the cheese in a plastic sandwich bag, and it's stayed just as fresh as the individually wrapped slices. I now buy the non individually wrapped slices by choice. I am guessing that I might end up using a little less plastic and have better tasting cheese also.
If I could find a block of American cheese, I might even try it in my Classic Pimento Cheese recipe. I could even experiment with replacing the more expensive cheese in my Bologna, cheese, & tomato sandwich.
