American Cheese Taste Test

In the spirit of #GrilledCheeseMonth, it is only fitting that we pay homage to our very first brand test–American cheese slices. Neither glamourous nor gourmet, and actually not a cheese at all, but a “cheese food,” rather, American cheese is a staple. Admit it, we’ve all had it at one time or another, whether it be in a grilled cheese or on a burger.

The criteria

We purchased three brands of processed cheese slices and tested them in regard to taste and melt.

The contenders

• Crystal Farms
• Kraft
• Kowalski’s

The results

• Best Taste: Kraft
• Best Melt: Crystal Farms
• Biggest Surprise: Kowalski’s

Interesting Observation

The first ingredient in Kraft was milk, the first ingredient in the Crystal Farms and Kowalski’s brand was American Cheese.

So, which brand of American Cheese will we be using in our next grilled cheese? Kraft!
