    Hello GTP, today I was going through the fridge and I discovered a half empty jar of Cheez Whiz. It was more than a year old, I was debating if I should to try it as it still smelled like Cheez Whiz, after a few minutes of debating I decided to smear some on some bread and to my amazement it still tastes the same as the day we bought it. So my question to you GTP, how long does Cheez Whiz last? It certainly passed my expectations.

    For those that do not know what Cheez Whiz is, it's basically processed cheese spread. Infact, here's a picture:

    Its processed, I'd imagine it has an incredibly long life, like Twinkies.

    Yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if it could probably survive a nuclear holocaust.

    I've got one of the big jars in my fridge from last August. It still tastes fine on a Ritz.

    It has become less viscous than normal though. It spreads kind of like mayo now.

    Provided that the twinkie is refrigerated, the most I got out of twinkies out in the open was 1 month.

    Um, its made of plastic. It is good until the end of the universe should you want it then.

    Does the cheez whiz have an expiration date on the product?

    yup.

    My 6 month old jar was supposed to have expired 4 days ago, on February 17th, but its still alright.

    Hmm I couldn't find one on my jar, that was the reason why I created this thread plus the fact that it had been sitting at the back of the fridge for atleast a year.

    Is February 17 the 'Use By' date or the 'Best Before' date?

    Big difference...

    hmm... I couldn't say, because it doesn't say. This date it just stamped on it.

    But probably a 'best before', because it was better before (less runny).

    Whatever it is, it sounds horrible. Is that used as a sandwich spread?

    By some I guess - not by me.
    I put it on snack crackers, or hot dogs & hamburgers, or melt it to make a (lazy/easy) sauce for steamed vegetables, or a nacho dip.

    I've never heard of that coming in a jar. Any time we get it it's in those spray things, like whipped cream.

    Cheese in a can? You what?

    I guess that's some artificial crap.

    I used to go fishing with my Dad when I was a kid, and he always took along a small jar of Cheez Whiz and a large bag of Fritos Corn Chips. It actually tastes much better than you imagine, and this thread brought back precious memories to me. I haven't even seen a jar of Cheez Whiz in several years, and right now I am tempted to go buy some.

    That stuff is nasty. Doesn't even taste like cheese. Theirs no better way to make cheese and crackers than to slice a piece off the ol cheese brick. Damnit, I'm hungry now.

    I have a hard time eating anything that is processed especially meat & cheese. I don't eat anything tinned apart from tuna and beans. It may taste good but it's something that I would normally leave out of my diet.

    Actually I don't even like any form of cheese (cheese whiz or spray cheese) except a good ol' slice of american Land O' Lakes.

    You would have a hard time over here. Our country is very industrialized, we even make our food in factories.

    Really?

    We have a large selection of supermarkets and they obviously sell your normal processed food but they do have a large selection of fresh meats, fish, vegetables & fruit. The area that I live in in Essex has loads of farms in the surrounding areas. You don't have to travel far to find a farm shop selling everything from meat to home made BBQ sauce.
