U.K. Twitter User Sparks Debate After Calling Out Americans For Liking Kraft Singles Cheeses
There are a lot of differences between the U.K and the U.S. Besides things like accents and what side of the road you drive on, there are vast disparities within the cuisine. Specifically? The cheese.
One U.K Twitter user pointed this out in a hilarious tweet tat sparked a huge debate.
“It’s so funny how Americans don’t have proper cheese lmao. Like what is this. Are you ok,” the tweet stated with a picture of Kraft singles.
Okay that’s…fair. Kraft singles, literally deemed “American cheese,” is quite the popular kind of cheese in this country. But when you compare it to other more gourmet cheeses, it does seem rather sad.

However, most people who saw the tweet felt the need to defend their sad cheese and point out that the U.K. isn’t exactly perfect either.
For example, Kraft really isn’t the only kind of cheese we eat here.
The USA does have real cheese, just as the UK does have processed cheese.All you’re telling us is that you don’t know about the world around you.

And what’s up with the U.K fare? Doesn’t look too appetizing, does it?

Many argued Kraft is just for grilled cheeses or a burger, but we don’t just sit and eat it, obviously. There are other types of cheeses for that.
Wtf are you talking about this is what the average cheese section looks like at any US grocery store. Those Kraft slices are for burgers and burgers only pic.twitter.com/o4b6b1W8cI

Of course, there were people from the U.K. who had to defend their country (and their food).
Looks like something Gordon Ramsey would make

Some noted that they might have other cheese…but it’s also not great:
This is on the sophisticated end of their cheese selection, that they call this mozzarella is cute. pic.twitter.com/ly3xtzsf8u

What are your thought son Kraft singles? Do you think it’s an accurate representation of American cheese?
