Food Products That Should Not Still Exist


I saw this on the shelves at my local grocery store the other day.

Nestle Alpine White chocolate bars faded away. O.K. Cola died a quick and painless death.

But Cheezewhiz lives on.

They kind of shot themselves in the foot on this one: created a product with so many preservatives it CAN'T go bad...for all we know that jar on the shelf could be from 198_

(When did Cheez Whiz come out? Yes, I am blatantly showing my age!)

Here's one to add to the list: Libby's Potted Meat Product. My father-in-law eats this stuff spread on bread as a sandwich filling. All I can say is, "Auk, Glack, Arrrgh!" And fall right on down.

Oh, and Cheez Whiz first hit the shelves in 1952! Cheez Whiz - Wikipedia

It appears that I must be the voice of reason here and say that if Cheez Whiz did not exist, then neither would the Philly Cheese Steak. So let's everyone calm down and slowly back away from the jar of orange, nearly cheese-like substance.

Scott,

The man from North Carolina resurfaces to defend Cheez-whiz.

Glad to know you are alive.

Are you sure CW is involved with Philly steak?

:)))))))))))))

Standards, Alison, standards. CW is not required for the great Philly Cheese Steak, but it is considered the traditional topping - especially for the major cheese-steak joints in Philly.

I prefer that cheese in a can that squirts out like day-glo frosting. You can make fun little cheesy flowers on your Ritz. :)

Emily has been begging for cheeze whiz in the spray can for over a year now. I just can't bring myself to buy it for her. It is fun to spray on the crackers, but somehow I feel like social services will come get me for feeding this to my child.

Scott made me laugh - back away from the jar - and I love cheese steak sandwiches - had one for lunch - but I have never heard of topping one with cheezewhiz.

I forgot about those apline white bars. I LOVED those things. Do you remember 7UP Gold? I loved that but it didn't last.

Hey Sherry - I just posted on the green fan. Oops, you were already sitting down, right? Didn't mean to startle you so badly.
