Kraft Old English Cheese

Ms. Soyle,
Although a while ago. Don't feel off center, I'm not surprised by individuals working for companies and don't know there stock, it's common 21st. century. But, Old English does exist. The slices were discontinued back in the late seventies/early eighties due to Kraft Slices being more popular. The spreadable version in the glass jar still exists. They did bring back the Old English Cheese, in slices, but changed the name to Deluxe, or Deli Deluxe. I have'nt eaten this stuff in years, but I think the name change a long time ago. Beneath my responce, there is a responce from Saploe that might help further in sloving this mystery. I think some products were sold by popularity in some regions of the Country and virtually unknown in other parts. Old English was the sharp flavored, American Cheese medium flavored and velveeta as mild. I think Saploe is right. I always thought of these as similar cheeses, just different chemicals and colors to change the ellusion of it being a totally different cheese. Hope this helps!!

Kraft Old English Cheese

In responce, although a year later. As a child, I too loved these cheese spreads, like your Mom. Growing up on Long Island, I was able to find this Pasteurized processed Cheese Product in most grocery stores near the Deli meats, cheez wiz and velveeta. But, living presently in New York City I am unable. Which probably is for the best considering I've made more health concious decisions in recent years. The flavors you've mentioned, all but one, I am familiar with. 'The Pimento" I did not know that one existed. However, does anyone remember "Blu Rocu" I'm not sure I'm spelling it correctly, but, this was an additional flavor Kraft offered. It was white in color and had sort of a Cream Cheese flavor with the zest of Blue Cheese. Old English, However, was sharp in taste and kind of reminded me, similarly, to the cheese Kraft would use in their cheese n cracker snacks. Remember, four club crackers with a red stick and a cheese compartment, in a clear plastic miniature package.
