What happened to the grated Kraft orange colored cheese???? Tue, 03/2/10 1:54 PM (permalink)
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:
      http://store.firehousepantrystore.com/herbs-and-spices-flavored-powders-and-misc--ingredients-cheddar-cheese-powder.html

      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.
