Great article in the Philadelphia Inquirer that scientifically proves that American is the preferred cheese for a cheesesteak. In their poll, cheese whiz came in third behind American and provolone.
I hope this puts this to a rest. No self-respecting Philadelphian that lives above Market Street or in the suburbs eats a steak with cheese whiz.
“I’m a cheese eater, sweetheart, and I love cheese, but Whiz is not cheese,” says owner Vonda Bucci, 75. “It’s a lot of grease and coloring.”
