Kraft Old English Cheese

There's nothing better than, or equal to, the flavor Kraft Old English Medium Cheddar Cheese slices, (or block), but unfortunately Kraft no longer makes it except perhaps in the tiny jars which for me did not taste the same. Something in the processing to keep it soft I guess. The Kraft O.E. Med. Cheddar was universally available for many, many, years. Kraft did "substitute" with Sharp Cheddar slices, (found at Safeway), but I found it unacceptable. It has no comparison to the "original" rich, full-bodied flavor of the O.E. Medium Sharp Cheddar that all the best recipes used, and they also put a "spin" on the flavor that I found distasteful. (Though I gave it a hopeful, good try). I now substitute with Tillamook sliced medium cheddar but it's second best by far and I just reluctantly adjusted to the change in order to live with it and have something to use now. I still hold out hope that one day Kraft will release the Old English Medium Cheddar again. Or perhaps someone will put out something equal to or better than the original. There's always hope!

Absolutely not. It's nothing like Pimento cheese,...it's a completely new product offering.

You may be happy to know that Kraft Deli Deluxe is now selling packages of sliced Cheddar with Bacon! I saw it in Safeway and my friends would kill me to steal it off of my dead body now!

I tried that and it's different. Thanks anyway. Even that has disappeared in the last few months. The whole Deli Deluxe line is vertually gone. I saw one pack of something I wasn't interested in, but I'll keep up the hunt.

The recipe sounds great and I copied it, but I'd prefer the slices for everyday use.

Thanks jeanmarieok but It's been "Kraft Deli Deluxe" slices for years now and that's what I can no longer find. :(

You're so right. :( It wasn''t that long ago that if I didn't find something I needed in the store they'd offer to order it for me.

Maybe we could start an internet petition. :)

I'm still finding Pimento in Safeway so far. Sales are supported by large groups of people with special dietary needs, such as kidney patients. Hopefully it remains.

I hope the heck Old English NEVER goes away! It is the best ever and in my opinion nothing can match it! It not only has a wonderful texture but it has a uniquely rich flavor, especially for a relatively inexpensive "store-cheese", as well.
My issue is I can't find the slices in recent weeks. I love it for sandwiches. I have a theory that because of how all the chain stores are going to house brands and cutting away everyone and everything they can to widen their profit margin, lack of demand will make it go away entirely! Yikes! I went to the Kraft website but was not able to find a search response or a way to contact and ask , but then I'm not the best at these things. I'm going to keep up the hunt for the cheese and hope for the best. I'll let this board know of my results.
