Easy Cheese is the trademark for a processed cheese spread product distributed by Mondelēz International.It is also referred to as “aerosol cheese”, “spray cheese”, “cheese fizz”, or simply “cheese in a can”, and is similar to “squeeze cheese” (a semi-solid cheesefood from the 1970s packaged in a squeezable plastic tube).
Easy Cheese is packaged in a metal can filled with air covered with a plastic cap that reveals a straight, flexible nozzle where the cheese is extruded.The product was first manufactured by Nabisco and sold under the name “Snack Mate” from 1965 until 1984.Advertisements often displayed the orange product adorned in flowy peaks atop several different types of hors d’oeuvres. As a 1966 advertisement says, it was “instant cheese for instant parties.”
Easy Cheese is currently available in Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, Cheddar ‘n Bacon, and American flavors. Discontinued varieties include Pimento, French Onion, Cheddar Blue Cheese, Shrimp Cocktail, Nacho, and Pizza.
