Faux Food: Is It Still Cheese?

I feel the exact same way about "American cheese". I don't have to worry about folks generally, so I am quite pompous about it.

I feel pretty much the same way about white chocolate. That just ain't chocolate. I will admit that one is more a matter of taste. But really, that ain't chocolate.
