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.

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
