Poll: Do You Like Processed Cheese?

Do You Like Processed Cheese?

As someone who loves the lowbrow as much as the highbrow, I eat processed American cheese more times a week than I care to admit. I'll never turn down a creamy Robiola, but I'll also never stray far from processed cheese, especially if it's on a burger or in cheese dip. I had been embarrassed about it, but recently I discovered I'm not alone in the food world. A Gourmet writer extolled its mild flavors and creamy texture, and Eric Ripert even holds some appreciation for it. Do you love it as much as we do?

For topping a burger, I miss having processed cheese slices around, but that's about all. (My husband won't have the stuff in the house.)

It's not "real" cheese but it is the best for certain foods, like dips and grilled cheese, mmmm.

It scares me a little. I eat it, but I can't think of a dish where real cheese wouldn't be better.

While for the most part I like my real cheeses, for some reason in burgers I find it hard to best processed cheese. Can't say I'm a fan of melting it into the patty on the broiler, as it just disappears. When I grew up my Mom would give us slices of Kraft Singles as a snack. Tasty as heck, and extremely convenient. Sometimes I like letting the foodie prima donna within me take a back seat (spam with tomato and onion being another guilty pleasure).

Oh I love it! LOOOOOOOOOOOVE it!!! It is the only cheese I'll put on a burger, it melts beautifully in a grilled cheese sandwich, my 3 year old daughter loves it frozen! Sliced processed cheese is a staple in my house!

I LOVE good quality cheese but I have to admit there is a place in my heart for cheese slices. Sigh I am kind embarrassed but its true I say!

I like it on my cheese burger, but I'd rather have the good stuff for anything else.

There is brand of soy cheese that comes in slices flavored cheddar, mozzarella, monterey jack, etc. that I absolutely ADORE! So good!

It's not horrible, but it's not cheese. Once people stop thinking of it as a form of cheese, and start thinking of it as a different and completely unrelated foodstuff, the more it'll get some recognition. By analogy, tofu makes a pretty wretched meat substitute, and if you bill it as such, it gets a lousy rap; but it's good in and of itself.

Well...I don't eat cheese, I just do not like it. If I do have cheese I eat a slice on a burger. I don't mind the processed kind as long as it's not eaten "straight". Those Kraft Singles have a sheen...they may even bounce, it feels so rubbery to me. Haha.

I live in Wisconsin. Processed cheese is NOT real cheese. I do NOT eat the stuff; to me, it smells like vomit. If I'm making cheeseburgers or grilled cheese, I'm using some REAL cheese.

I didn't think I loved it that much up until I moved to a country where I can't get it in supermarkets. When I have a craving I just go buy a cheeseburger at BK or McDonald's. I did brought back a few packages home last time I went to Sweden. :oops:
