What happened to the grated Kraft orange colored cheese????

Does anybody remember the kraft grated cheese when it used to be orange? Instead of being in a plastic container like it is now it was in more of a cardboard skinnier tube like container and the "cheese" product was very fine and bright orange.  You sprinkled it on your spaghetti and whatever. I'd totally forgotten about it until a friend mentioned it the other day, you can't find it anymore, it just comes in the Parmesan flavors.
thanks!

    I found this list of ingredients for the contents of the old "Kraft Grated American Cheese Food" containers:
    Sharp cheddar cheese aged over 60 days (milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes), skim milk, whey, salt, sodium phosphate, yellow 5 (color), lactic acid, red 40 (color).
     
    Contrast that list with what Kraft makes their powder out of today:

    AFAIK, Kraft replaced the product with cheaper-to-produce dairy muck.

    We have it at the grocery store here, but I wouldn't put it on spaghetti.
