You know what creeps me out about American cheese? It’s individually-packaged slices, how the creases on the slice are always the inverse of those on the wrapper and how it’s obviously cast into it, liquid. This cheese came into being in that wrapper, like some kind of pod creature or Frankenfood.
Or was the cheese melted first, and then poured in? Am I getting pre-melted cheese? Wikipedia will answer this for me. The truth is not pretty.
