Fear Mongering NPR Threatens Philadelphia’s Very Existence


cheez-whiz-400With Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway backed merger of Kraft Foods and Heinz, NPR’s The Salt speculates that Cheez Whiz could be a victim of the merger. Could Kraft seriously take a product that pumps through the veins of many Philadelphia cheesesteak lovers off the shelves?

Luckily, the report seems mainly speculative. A Kraft-Heinz merger would likely come with cost-cutting that could result in the elimination of some products, but those are more likely to be products that overlap between Kraft and Heinz, and anyone worth their salt knows, there is no cheese sauce that compare with real Kraft Cheez Whiz.
