Easy Cheese

I was walking through the cracker aisle at the grocery store when I spotted a little bit of childhood: Easy Cheese!

I have fond memories of this while on our month-long motor-home excursions around the good old USA (and Canada, too!). We’d get a little Ritz, squeeze the cheese and yum! A perfect road food! There was the traditional can variety Easy Cheese and I also remember some sort of tube cheese with a little hole in the center from which the gooey goodness was dispensed. I’m not sure what was going on in the 70s to make it so easy cheese friendly, but you know if you grew up during that time, you had some Easy Cheese, too! And it was good.

Mmmmmmmmmm ..... Easy Cheese! I do remember the tube packaging you mentioned. Not seen the tube packaging on the store shelves in years. Did you ever twist and wad up the tube trying to get that last bit of cheese out?

Of course! That was part of the fun of the tube! Twist it tighter and tighter...you may just get some out. I think at some point I just cut it open, but that's when I was twisted out.
