American cheese gets a bad rap. Unfortunately, that rap is spot on. When we think of all the wonderful cheeses of the world—Gouda, Swiss, Danish Blue, Camembert and so on—it seems almost painful to lump American cheese in the same sentence. Don’t get me wrong; I think America as a whole is wonderful and American cheese on a burger is superb. Outside of that, meh… I say we petition our Congressmen and announce a new cheese for our nation. Who’s with me?
