I thought they had a popcorn field, and a herd of Jersey cows, in the back of all movie theaters. I will never eat movie popcorn again. Effing cheese container cancer, who needs that shiat?

The closest that 'butter' has been to a cow is when the delivery truck passed a field by the interstate.

That may not be news, but "eat nachos at your own risk" is good advice for anyone.

/Damn, Now I want nachos.  Homemade ones, though.  With shredded pot roast, homemade refried black beans, and homemade cheese sauce with salsa in it.
//And green onions.  And sour cream.
///F*ck, no wonder I have so damn much weight to lose.

Best response out of all of them. I can't get the picture of someone's granny sitting in the back coking up batches of queso out of my head... Some wonderfully sweet old lady who constantly tries to get me to just eat more. :-)

The sign says it's about acrylamide in coffee.

Paper coffee cups these days have a thin polyethylene lining in the inside. Its melting point is higher than that of boiling water. Nacho cheese bags are likely made of the same material, but are held at a lower temperature.

I don't expect TikTokers to be educated on these things. They should stick to just Toking.

I feel you, but I think I may be the only person on the planet who doesn't care for chorizo.  (._.)

But do they still have their inhouse confectioner to hand-make artisanal M&Ms and individually and lovingly stamp the M on each one?

When I was in high school, I worked in food service at a local a amusement park. We did pastries, soft-serve ice cream, and nachos supreme at the three windows (oy, what a combination!).

The "cheese" came in a 5-pound can, which we poured into the big metal containers in the water bath.  It was so viscous that we had to add 2 12-oz cups of water to each can. Stirring it until the water was absorbed was like hard labor.

I never at the stuff.

The last time I was in a theater I saw that Lion King movie. The "live" action one.

I remember it distinctly not because it was a good movie, it was middling at best, but because I got bronchitis thanks to the stranger sitting to my left.

That was just a bit before the outbreak of the pandemic.

Forgive me if I have no desire to visit a movie theater now. Let alone buy your overpriced attempts at food.

The movie theater in our town uses real butter for the popcorn. No nachos, though.

I'm more alarmed that starch and vegetable oil are above cheese.

Y'all - that's not cheese. Don't even come close.

Just go to a 7-11.They have those machines right out in the open, to use on their hot dogs.  Also ones which extrude "Chili".

That's assuming the bags are properly manufactured. As a dude who spent too many years jockeying convenience store registers let me tells ya: they ain't.

You are pretending "Cheese Whey" isn't cheese.

Fresh out of high school before college, I ran a nacho stand at an amusement park. The nacho "cheese" was 1 gallon water mixed with 1 bag of "cheese" powder. It wasn't actually bad, had some dehydrated jalapeño in it. After the park closed, some people from other food services would raid my leftovers while I went and raided theirs. Gotta find free food where you can working minimum wage.

I used to live like 2 blocks away from a 7-11, and would occasionally get drunk enough to want to walk that far for 7-11 food. Normally I'd grab 2 bags of the chips and one of the plastic containers they had, load up on chili and cheese as you described, and this particular one had condiments like raw onion and jalapeno slices, then tell them to charge me double cuz really the only cost was the 2 bags of chips.

One time I did this same thing, while farking sober, on my way home from work, and just forgot to tell them to charge me double. Got out the door, realized I scored a whole dollar or something and was like hell yeah,I win, tripped off the curb and splattered my entire windshield with 7-11 chili and cheese.

That was not fun to get rid of.

I've worked in a movie theater, and I'd rather eat nacho cheese out of a hot cancer bag than have it prepared by the concession stand workers.

Soft serve ice cream machines dispense pretty much the same way that the nacho cheese machine does in the article. (except for the part where it's frozen)

They use those types of pumps and depending on the ice cream base, will use a resealable bag also.

I had a buddy in HS whose dad was in the Mexican restaurant supply biz. He'd show up at parties with a 10 lbs box of freshly fried tortilla chips and a #10 can of jalapeno cheese sauce. Those damn chips put to shame any mass-market chips. And you could dunk them in the can of cheese up to your wrist.
