A To Z Blogging Challenge: X Is For Xylography (‘the art of engraving on wood’)

Now wood engraving is wonderful and I think it can be beautiful but every time I see a piece of wood these days I can't help but think of an article I read a while back titled,  Plaster, Wood, and Sand in My Grated Cheese?

I don't think an article has ever effected me the way this one has. After reading this and finding out all the gross things that are in my pre-shredded cheese, I haven't bought anymore pre-shredded cheese again and I guarantee that you won't want to either. 

Frankly, I was skeptical so I looked on the back of a package of shredded cheese I had in my fridge and started Googling the different ingredients and sure enough...wood, sand and plaster in my cheese. 


  1. Yuck! That's terrible. I never buy grated cheese.

  2. Oh more grated or shredded cheese for me!!

  3. As someone who loves shredded cheese I'm both horrified and glad I read that. NEVER. AGAIN.

  4. Shelley- I never buy it either.

    Keith- Gross, huh?

    Pat- I feel the same way.

    A Beer For The Shower- I felt the same way after reading that article.

  5. I worked in a diary department, I knew about the evils of pre-shredded cheese.

  6. haha. whatever doesn't kill you... i'm sure i eat worse all the time.

  7. Well ewww! And that goes for a lot of the food stuffs out there. It's crazy some of them.
