brigid_fitch: I had a revelation while standing at the deli counter one day.  Land O' Lakes American cheese was on sale and everyone was on line buying it.  After hearing the guy behind the counter ask each person "yellow or white" every time, it dawned on me:  What the hell flavor is yellow?  Why am I eating this crap?  Looked it up online and found that American Cheese started out as a Colby/Cheddar blend but is now so processed it really can't be called cheese.  Screw that--I can buy colby & cheddar myself and make way better grilled cheese than Land O Lakes stuff.

Most "American Cheese" is oil with some milk and dye.

My parents never bought it and when I tried it as an adult I almost barf.

i guess reverse psychology had an effect on me - i now think of white cheese as the better kind, and haven't bought anything dyed yellow in forever
