They are. If I didn't have BBQ I would choose sour cream and onion, ketchup or salt and vinegar. Never plain.

Wife: Oh, no American cheese please. We want *real* cheese.


I try to explain to her that some people might be offended by her saying that American cheese is not real cheese, but she says she doesn't care. And that a lot of Americans she's said this to, actually agree with her and say "yeah, I know it's not very good".
There is nothing odd or offensive about what your wife said. American cheese is a specific type of cheese product, made from cheese but not all cheese. It ISN'T real cheese, not to any American

You are right, here in the US everyone knows “American cheese” is processed garbage. We have plenty of good cheese that comes from our country. Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Vermont all make quality cheese. Low quality processed cheese has nothing to do with America. Whoever named it American cheese must have really hated us.

...... The Oxford English Dictionary lists the first known usage of "American cheese" as occurring in the Frankfort, Kentucky, newspaper The Guardian of Freedom in 1804. The next usage given is in 1860 by Charles Dickens in his series The Noncommercial Traversal........

I seem to recall, from my childhood in the 1960s, that Kraft made an effort to promote their processed cheese slices in Canada (aka "American cheese"), as "Canadian cheese." That didn't last too long. Why they changed, I don't know; but Kraft, and other producers, eventually just went with "processed cheese slices." As I recall, in Kraft's case, "processed cheese" was in small type above the word "Singles," in large type, on the packages.

Americans will tell you that " American Cheese " is not the same as Kraft Singles, even though it's still a processed cheese.

This US blogger who moved to Ottawa, seems to have an emotional relationship with " American Cheese" so it probably taints their view on how good it is, and it's rather a long piece just to describe what the heck
" American Cheese " is, but still informative.

"Well, no wonder the rest of the world snubs their noses at American cheese! They think American cheese is Kraft singles! If that was true I would completely agree that it is garbage, but it is all a terrible misunderstanding. I want to try to set things straight."
