- American cheese has valid culinary uses.
2.It's too soft to easily slice that thin on your own.
I was raised in a 100% cheese-like-product-free house, so this doesn't come from nostalgia. Shit's just good in grilled cheese sandwiches or mac and cheese, especially when mixed with other cheeses. And the one time I had spray cheese, I found it to be decent junk-tier food, no worse than doritos.
People get too hung up over the form of things. If some French guy discovered 200 years ago that adding sodium citrate to cheese made it extra creamy when melted, it would be a venerable culinary tradition. You scoff, but how is normal cheese any less weird? You're consuming pressed blocks of concentrated and fermented lymphatic secretions from a cow.
