    The individually wrapped Kraft American Cheese was the worst for the cashiers "I'm sorry, you need to get this from the deli"

    There you go, more proof!

    Years ago I had some friends from Northern Vermont come stay at our house for a weekend so we gave them our bedroom which faces the street. We live on a fairly busy street. Not too crazy but in the summer when they came there can be plenty of motorcycles (which ironically they came down on a Harley) and trucks going by at all hours.

    The first morning my friend says to me "How the hell can you sleep through that???"

    I said you're from Vermont man, it's a hell of a lot quieter on that street (which is a dead end where he used to live) than it is here!

    It's funny how you can become desensitized to the noise. My buddy grew up on a very busy road in Woburn, and he couldn't sleep unless there was constant road noise. If it was too quiet, he'd wake up. lol

    It's so true. The opposite for us is when we go to VT and it's so quiet especially in the winter

    I have friends from NYC that need headphones playing street sounds to fall asleep when camping.

    Yeah, we used to let them buy the Kraft sliced American from the dairy, but not the individually wrapped. Better cheese anyway, the wrapped stuff is one chemical away from plastic.

    I sleep with a white noise machine when it's not air conditioner season. I can't sleep in silence.

    I also listen to meditations on calm and headspace with headphones if i wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. i need background distractions.

    This is so true. Kraft Singles are not even real food. I'm not a huge fan of deli sliced American (usually Land o Lakes). For some reason, it just seems dry, which is weird. I go with the Kraft Deli Select. With Oscar Meyer bologna, or course. In fact, that was my lunch just a few minutes ago.

    The Relaxio app is kinda cool. I rarely need help getting to sleep. I'm a natural deep sleeper and take melatonin before bed, so it's a double whammy. But on the rare occasions when my brain won't turn off, Relaxio is my go to. You can choose from a bunch of different sounds, from true white noise (TV static) to a fan, to coffee shop background noise, to a bunch of natural noises.

    Kraft Singles (and the store brand equivalent) was one of the dairy items we would "store on the floor" when the dairy chest was full to the brim during the holidays, because it really didn't need refrigeration. Another was eggs, because they took up the most room and sold really fast (but don't tell the FDA).

    I'm surprised the wrapper isn't edible tbh..

    I've never liked American cheese and I'm pretty sure it is because of these individually wrapped slices.

    I once accidentally set a Toro weed whacker down on the lawn mower muffler and melted the orange plastic guard. The melted plastic looked just like a melted Kraft Single.

    Yeah, it can't even be called cheese, it's "Processed Cheese Food". It has more in common with the tires on your car than cheese.

    American cheese is pretty crappy in general

    Yes, a classic grilled cheese is great, but you can substitute any other variety of cheese on it or a burger to make it better

    Back in the day, before cameras and security guards, us grocery guys used to handle shoplifters. I once chased a guy out of the store and tackled him in the middle of the Southern Artery in Quincy. He was lobbing steaks back at me as I chased him, pulling them out of his pants. I held him there in the middle of traffic until the cops came from the station just up the street. Good times.

    Our LP officers ran after a guy once who had stuffed 4 lobsters down his pants and tried to jump the train tracks behind the Star Market in Hyde Park.

    Guy didn't make it too far as he decided getting arrested was better than getting pancaked by an Amtrak train.

    Oh, the stories. We had one woman we stopped at the door because she was walking funny. We shook her a little and 4 packs of batteries and a toaster dropped out of her skirt. Another was in the upstairs overlook being detained for the police and she jumped right over the balcony, falling to the floor below and breaking her leg.

    My boss said pumpkin is fine but he never suggests it because too many people give their dogs pie filling with additives which makes the pooping worse.

    I’d rather discuss cheese.

    I braved Roche Brothers tonight to get their cheddar blue cheese spread.

    It is crack in cheese form.
