I think that was part of a program that benefited both dairy farmers and the less wealthy people in our country. They killed two birds with one stone.

We got it a few times when I was young. I don’t really remember what it was like.

I had to Google it. It’s sounds like the processed cheese precursor to American cheese.


You can still get it through some food pantries.

I’ve no experience with it. I’ve used a food shelf a few times in the past and they never offered any cheese. Mostly just dry and canned goods, eggs, and maybe a little meat.

Still grateful for the help I got though.
