.......what is it and should we be eating it? Have you ever given it much thought? I have...since I was a wee child....pasteurized processed cheese food substitute and orange juice drink. In breaking it down it's pretty obvious, pasteurized - heated to a degree of deadness knocking out all enzymatic action, processed - put through the culinary wringer, cheese - I like cheese, food - food is good, you eat it. So far so good, we're ate dead wrung out cheese food. It's still in a food category.......but then they throw in substitute? What is a food substitute? There's some toy cheese over at the church nursery that most of the kids have tried to eat. Is that what it is? It looks real, even feels real, it could definitely work as a cheese substitute but I wouldn't want to eat it. Think about it next time you're confronted with pasteurized processed cheese food substitute........same thing when you're confronted with a glass of orange juice drink....the orange drink that has nothing to do with the juice of oranges. I could ask what is it? But I won't. I'll just put them both on the shelf with Gold 'n' Soft, Wonder Bread, Twinkies and that Supersize Me guys french fries. Maybe in a decade or three someone will need a snack.
