    Sliced Bread

    Discussion in 'Debate Room' started by HelloThere, Jun 25, 2015.

    How soon after the invention of sliced bread do you think the phrase "This is the best thing since sliced bread" came into use? Is it fair to place sliced bread as the pinnacle of human invention when spray cheese and the snuggie exist? If you could update this outdated term, what would you replace bread with?

    discuss.

    "Spray cheese"? What is that? :ohno:

    Graphene, it's the best thing since silicon. :)

    The image was much bigger than I was expecting so it seemed appropriate.

    I thought you might be referring to Cheez Whiz. I've never heard anyone refer to that as cheese 'spraying out' but in looking for it I don't see any other verb applied. Must be a brain lapse on my part.

    To be honest, I've never actually had any experience with the stuff, I don't think it's sold in Britain - not anywhere I've seen at least.

    Is it nice?

    Easy Cheese
    I guess that's why I've never heard it called spray cheese.

    No one I know would ever eat this product. I don't even buy the stuff called 'cheese food'.

    But my mom was a Velveeta fan when she was alive.

    It's not bad on a Triscuit. Its very existence causes hissy fits among cheese snobs, though.

    It's got nothing to do with snobbery. It has to do with avoiding things that need made up names to get past the fact they are not what they are pretending to be.

    How much actual cheese has to be in cheese food or cheese product?
    Less than 51%? :ohno:

    Makes one wonder how much less.

    I like the sharp cheddar flavor, but on Keebler Club Crackers. ;)

    As a Yank it's so odd when I see/hear food referred to as nice. In the U.S. food items are good, not nice. Nice food feels like a statement if it being well behaved. :bigtongue: And really, you don't have this in the U.K.? Oh... Wait... you have Marmite. :blech:



    It's the best thing since finding out you can't buy Marmite in America! :whistle::-D

    Well British food is actually quite well behaved, ever since we destroyed aerosol cheese in the great cheesy rebellion of 1976 - all the other foods are too scared to act up, lest they share the same fate.

    Especially Marmite, I've never met anyone that likes Marmite, if Marmite starts acting up it will be reduced to nothing more than a note in a dusty book listing the great tragedies of British history, and the world will be a better place for it.
