If there was a taste test between Kraft Fat Free Sharp Cheddar Singles and American Cheese Singles - I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. American cheese isn't so bad, and it's great on sandwiches, but if you were actually expecting that sharp intense taste of cheddar, you would be disappointed. It's actually ironic that they choose to call this "Sharp" cheddar when this doesn't even resemble "Mild." Liz had the same experience with Borden Fat Free Sharp Cheese Singles(read the review). I wonder if there is a brand of 'FatFree Cheddar' out there that actually tastes like the regular stuff.
One slice (21 grams) of Kraft Fat Free Sharp Cheddar Singles provides 30 calories, no fat, 12% of the RDA for sodium and 5 grams of protein. Regular Kraft singles are 60 calories, 5 grams of total fat (7% of the RDA) and 15% of the RDA for saturated fat (3 grams).
The cost of the Fat Free singles was $1.00 more than the regular kind at a cost of $4.22 for a 8 pack. It might be worth is to some, especially if you eat a lot of cheese - and if you like American cheese. I didn't try grilling this - am I the only person that doesn't eat grilled cheese? - so if anyone has any experience in melting this, please let us know in the comments.
