String Cheese.

I like string cheese as a snack. It’s the best, man. Not only does it taste good, but when you eat it you have an excuse to play with your food — pulling each string off. They’re just awesome.

I had eaten string cheese made by the Kraft company — a name brand. Over a few weeks, I had gone through a few packs of the Kraft string cheese.

Tonight I went to grab some string cheese out of the fridge and I realized that it wasn’t the name brand Kraft string cheese — it was some cheap imitation string cheese. But I figured it’d still be good, right?

It tasted disgusting. It was nothing like I was used to from the name brand string cheese — it didn’t even pull apart properly. So frustrating. I don’t think its that the cheap stuff was bad — but the name brand was tons better.

This naturally led me to two profound thoughts:

1) The Real Thing is always better. Never go for a cheap imitation.
2) It took a cheap imitation before I realized what I really had.

  1. OK, so I went to the store today to get a few groceries I forgot about. And, while I was there I had a hankering for string cheese.

    I typically get Sargento cheese, and I’ve been really happy with it. But, this time I decided to get the Kraft string cheese.

    So, I get home and tear into the package and open the first one, and pull the first string off…and my fingers slip off of the cheese. It’s extremely moist. So, I try again and end up smushing the cheese. Well, I finally get the first string pulled off, and I put it in my mouth…and almost spit it back out!

    All that to say: I was expecting Sargento cheese. The Kraft wasn’t bad, but when I put it in my mouth, I was expecting the taste of Sargento. I don’t know that Kraft is better than Sargento, or vice-versa. But, I do know that I prefer Sargento. I can learn to like the Kraft, it wasn’t that, but I think I’m going to stick with the Sargento from now on.

    I’ll bring the leftover Kraft string cheese to you, that way you don’t have to suffer through the generic stuff! 😀
