Whats the bestest bite-sized processed cheese-based snack?
Only if there’s enough of it.
Mankind’s downfall can largely be attributed to retailers’ inability to put enough fake cheese product in a pack – which forces the poor, unknowing customer either to buy two packs or to remain unsatisfied by the fake cheese hit. It’s almost inhuman.
EDIT: wwaswas, I’m all for fake cheese, but the Twiglet is possibly the nastiest, least satisfying snack product on the market.Posted 4 years agorogerthecatMember
@binners – oooooh it also comes in a block and a spread and can be bought from the Oirish shop for £1.99 per brick: http://www.theirishshop.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=27Posted 4 years ago
Eh? Is it the classic babybel
The more modern interloper, the cheesestring
…or the altogether squidgier, and therefore massively more satisfying
Dairylea triangle. Or is there anything out there that trumps all 3?
No ‘proper’ cheese. Before the food snobs start. Has to be crap processed rubbish. Dems da rules

kraft cheese slice, laid on a piece of processed ham, and then rolled into a spiral of cheesy hammy goodness.
For a sophisticated take, cut it into ‘pinwheels’ and lay it out on a paper plate, where your pre-bbq guests can pretend they are canapes.
For a proper cooked snack, microwave for a few seconds until the ham starts spitting and the cheese oozes.
50% of the population may like to include a twiglet in the centre; however note that twiglets don’t cut sufficiently neatly for the canape version.Posted 4 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
doesn’t have to be wafer thin, but that does work. Most important is the shape – cheap ham that comes in squares is almost exactly the same size, so little overlap, leading to no pinwheel wastage at the ends. The ham to cheese ratio is suboptimal if you have ham shaped ham.Posted 4 years agojulianwilsonMember
My kids think Applewood is ‘posh’ cheese. More processed than babybel in reality, and rather guilty-pleasure-moreish.
Also where are we on cooked cheese ‘snacks’? I am thinking chilli poppers, paneer poppers (recent arrival to frozen halal section in Tesco), breaded mozarella sticks, breaded camambert? Mmmmmm, heeeaaaart attack! 😀Posted 4 years ago
Seeing as we’ve introduced a heat source into proceedings (and also self-flagellation), may I recommend the guilt-ridden, dirty, but oh-so-enjoyable, so-wrong-yet-sooooooo-right experience of marching into your nearest Macdonalds, and with your head held high, proudly asking the spotty teenager for a portion of mozzarella dippers!
Deep fried processed cheese. Served with a luminous red, apparently ketchup based substance labelled as salsa dip. Mmmmmmmmmmmm 🙂Posted 4 years ago
