THE HISTORY OF WHIPPED CHEESE From Swiss cheese to whipped cheese!
Easy Cheese The most common form of whipped cheese, “Easy Cheese”, was invented by Nabisco in 1966. Cheese in a can is manufactured in Wrightstown, Wisconsin. Distributed by Kraft Foods Does not require refrigeration
Why the can design? “Although sometimes called "aerosol cheese", its container is not actually an aerosol spray can, because the cheese does not combine with the propellant (nitrogen) to turn into a fine mist upon being sprayed. Rather, the can contains a plastic cap which serves as a barrier and a piston whose movement squeezes the cheese through the nozzle in a solid column when the nozzle is pressed. The propellant, therefore, does not mix with the cheese. This explains why the can has a small rubber plug on its base. Normal aerosol cans are charged with all of their contents through the single opening at the top, but spray cheese cans are separately charged with cheese through the top and propellant through the bottom. The can design also ensures that the cheese can be dispensed with the can upright or inverted.”

Death of a Salesman Linda: “Willy, dear, I got a new type of American cheese today. It’s whipped. Willy: “Why do you get American when I like Swiss?” Linda: “I just thought you’d like a change—” Willy: “I don’t want a change! I want Swiss cheese. Why am I always being contradicted?” Linda: “I thought it would be a surprise.”
