Me too. I avoid a lot of processed foods too. I love cheese, but the processed stuff that Americans like to label as their own, we don't eat. Unless totally diligent, it is impossible to avoid them all, but I do try.

If I am really hungry, and all there is are hotdogs to eat, I am not going to pass one by.

We don't call that stuff "American cheese" - we call it "Plastic".

Hey, there are some really good gourmet hot dogs being made now! Don't be trash talking about my dogs!

Been thinking it might be better to winterized and sanitize the Escape with 100 proof Canadian Club, especially after Reace's warning about not getting the taste of nontoxic antifreeze out of the water lines.

Oh stop already with the sanctimony. You Canadians eat more than your share of Velveeta:

Velveeta Cheese- Kraft Canada

Somebody told me frozen Velveeta can be shaped into a pretty decent hockey puck. Made out of the same stuff!

Yes, there's lots of processed cheese eaten here - although I only have a sloce of it on an occasional McDonald's burger - but we don't call it "Canadian" cheese. I assumed Jim was just referring to the naming... and by "we", he meant his household (not Canadians in general).

Personally, I think this kind of stuff only belongs (in powdered form) in Kraft Dinner.

Nothing irks me more than finding that I can't find a favorite product at my local Safeway, and that the shelf space is taken up by yet another Kraft product.
But, that's how it works these days. Kraft buys the premium space from Safeway ( and the other food stores ) and the little guy gets squeezed out.
If the little guy is too successful, Kraft buys them.
As long as consumers buy Kraft products, influenced by placement, price and advertising, there is nothing anyone can do about it, except eat Campbell's soups...
