Okay ... so .... I'm calling out to all my faithful readers ... all twelve or so of you ... to help me with a conundrum.
I have a memory. It may be false. I have problems with the logic of this memory ... but there are a lot of details surrounding it that seem real. So I'm asking if anyone else can throw in some facts and verify whether or not this existed.
I have a distinct memory of there being a product at the grocery store. It was sliced cheese. I think it was flavored (pizza maybe?) ... and the point of this cheese was that you were supposed to put a slice of it on a piece of bread (toast?), put it in the oven, and it would melt into this "pizza bread" of sorts.
I remember it tasting delicious. I remember it was one of the few things that my mom allowed me to make for myself. I remember that my mom stopped buying it because I was a heavy little kid with impulse control issues and I was eating a half dozen of these things at one sitting.
Now ... here are the issues. I asked Stoney and he has no memory of this type of product. I Googled and came up with nothing. I asked Mom and she has no idea what I'm talking about.
Bigger issues? How would I have made this? Toast the bread first? Okay but then how would you melt the cheese? Microwave? That would make sliced bread rubbery. If I put it in the oven, did I broil it? For me to remember this being something unique because mom would let me cook it, then I had to be young. She didn't let me just play with the oven for fun. We didn't own a toaster oven. So how was the bread not a soggy mess under this slice of cheese?
Did I hallucinate this???
So I'm wondering ... any of you 80's babies out there ... does anyone else remember this? Sliced, flavored cheese ... meant to go on top of bread and be melted.
Anyone have any ideas? Anybody?
But the memory remains
