Hoping someone can help jog my memory here.. I seem to remember a snack food from the late 80s/early 90s and I can't remember what it was called or if in fact it did exist and wasn't a figment of my imagination.

It came in a foil packet that had two large rectangular crackers and one rectangular piece of orange cheese that you put in between to make a sandwich. The cheese like substance was quite thick. I think it was longlife shelf stable cheese like the Kraft cheese you buy in the blue box. Does anyone else remember this or am I crazy???

I grew up in the UK ( so probably not much help) but we had something similar. It was a Ritz sandwich, two crackers with soft cheese between. They were yum.
I'm sure Ritz was made by McVities.

We used to buy this about 7 years ago before it disappeared off the shelves.  That was quite nice if you are into inferior cheeses.

Yes!! I think I do remember this and eating it at uni around 1988!!  

I think it came in a plastic outer packet and a foil wrapped square of cheese! (If my memory is correct).

Was a pretty processed bland type of processed cheese.

Ahhhh - life was simpler then.......

YES YES YES that's the one!! and I am pretty sure that to open the cheese you pulled a little piece of string or something and it tore the foil wrapper open. Any idea who made them? It's driving me nuts trying to remember what they were called.
