Anyone tried canned cheese?

Saw Kraft cheddar cheese in a can in a local Chinese supermarket. It is produced in Bahrain of all places - I didn't think they had cows there, but anyway ... I was wondering if anyone has tried this? Thought it might be something have onboard for long passages when the fridge and freezer are starting to look empty and there are no stores to speak of for another 1000 miles.

You mean there is dairy product in Kraft Cheddar ? I though it was made from reconstituted polystyrene.....

Guys,

All I can remember is that we used to get Kraft canned cheese in our ration packs.
Looked a bit like cheese, tasted a bit like cheese but then it is Kraft.

ever hear of Velveeta cheese found in the chip isle shelf stuff with great life IE years until opened. i carry a couple small packs much more available here in the states than canned. will have to order some canned and try it.
they moved there to avoid some tarrifs to us we have a military supply base there. also the saudi people probably paid kraft to go there

hellosailor has a spectacular aura about hellosailor has a spectacular aura about
"sodium polyphosphate, potassium polyphosphate, citric acid, Nisin (preservative)."

At that point you might as well buy a jar of Cheez Whiz or a block of Velveeta.

The 8-oz waxed wheels of Gouda and Edam seem to hold up pretty well when kept cool, and that's real cheese.
