Kraft Singles Are Now Free of Artificial Preservatives, and Here Are 10 Grilled Cheese Recipes to Help You Celebrate
Kraft had a rough start to 2014 with the Velveeta cheese shortage scare in January. But it seems like the brand is recovering nicely; in what's either a smart PR move or a genuine interest in consumer health, the brand announced this week that its full-fat American and white American Kraft Singles are now officially free of artificial preservatives.
As we all know, Kraft Singles are sliced bread's best friend, and we are celebrating the good news with a roundup of grilled cheese recipes, of course. Try substituting — or adding — some Kraft slices in these 10 delicious sandwiches (and feel less guilty while doing it).
