A video of a piece of cheese is going viral for one disturbing reason.
Seriously… A slice of cheese has everyone talking, and it might not be for a reason you’re going to enjoy. I don’t know about you, but growing up, a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup was one of my all-time favorite meals. It doesn’t get more American than that, and it’s still one of the best comforting combinations. Unfortunately, the following viral video has me questioning if I’ll ever buy the individually wrapped American cheese slices again.
Just like this video about “frankensteaks” and the little-known secret of meat glue that many restaurants use to drive up the price of low quality meat, the following video has food lovers up in arms. While it probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Kraft Singles American cheese product slices aren’t the freshest or most high-quality snacks on the market, it does raise some eyebrows why the cheese slices don’t melt under a high flame.
As you can see in the following video, when a flame is held to the plastic wrapper, it melts right away, yet it barely has any effect on the cheese slice. Although Kraft came out with a statement that the cheese is only meant to get that melty goodness over a low flame, most people assume that whatever ingredient is keeping this cheese in tact, can’t be good for our bodies.
