Today’s question of the day is unofficially sponsored by Kraft cheese and it’s subsidiary companies! Woot woot!
**sorry Velveeta and Sargento and other notable brands for the exclusion**
Why is there a distinction of American and Italian, but no French at the grocery stores???
When I go to the grocery store, I prefer an Italian blend. Perhaps that’s my go to because of all the pasta I tend to use it for. Pasta’s Italian IS IT NOT?
No idea. I just eat food.
What amazes me is that we have American cheese and we also have Italian cheese. Do you or have you ever seen any other types of cheeses or blends of cheese? I haven’t, which is why I’m posing this question of the day, but if you have, you can enlighten me and anyone else like me in the comment section. For the purpose of this blog post, I’m assuming there’s no such thing as other kind of cheese blends available at an everyday grocery store like Wal-Mart, Target, etc. Fully aware there may be such items at a specialty cheese store, but who goes to those really?
The thing is, I know there are “French” cheeses out there. Do you find them at the grocery store? Maybe not. I don’t at least. The cheese marketing is jacked. We’re not educated on cheese enough either by ads or commercials. Everyone is just expected to know about cheese I guess.
It may seem like I love cheese after this post and the aggressive nature in which I’ve typed this out, but I’m actually not a huge cheese-eater like I used to be in my younger years.
Back in the early 2000s, I used to eat a lot of cheese. Like I’m going to stand at the fridge with a package of shredded cheese and shove handfuls of cheese in my mouth kind of “eat a lot of cheese.” Then at some point, I found out that’s not healthy at about the same time I started having more stomach aches when I would have a lot of dairy products and the same time I stopped liking as much cheese (which may have just been a result of the other two things). Thus the cut backs began and I watch what I eat more.
Do I still put a ton of cheese on my pasta? FOR SURE.
Do I still have to be told to tell the waiter at Olive Garden to stop putting cheese on my entree? ABSOLUTELY because I have like no self control and I’d be okay with them using the whole cheese block.
My point is…
Why is there no section for other cheese blends at the store and why is there no education on the cheeses available for people like me other than Google??????
An announcement of fine print:
This is actually not really sponsored or endorsed by any brand, but it’s cool if you thought it was.
Branding is a joke, but the questions are real.

You crack me up! Sorry I am not a Connoisseur, so I can’t really answer. While reading, I was wondering if Brie cheese is French? But that is not found in the regular cheese area of the store. Maybe in the deli area. That’s all I got for you! Lol. Good luck on your research 🧐 🧀 and since this emoji came up when I typed cheese, that reminded me of Swiss cheese too. But again – probably in the deli and not the dairy department. 🤷♀️
Lol thank you!! There are more questions than answers it seems on this cheesy subject. If I found out anymore, I’ll pass it along! 😅
