Brie, Alica McKenna Johnson

Brie, so yummy

I love cheese, real cheese that comes in blocks and has a rind. Cheese that smells pungent with a strong taste that would make kids gag.
So why does the fake orange cheese always look so good? Plastic cheese sauce for nachos. ‘Cheese’ powder for boxed macaroni and chips.
What is it about that shade of orange that makes my mouth water?
I know it’s not real food.

I know it’ll make my stomach hurt and give me a headache. And yet I want it whenever I see it.
It’s addictive.
Do you too long for the fake orange ‘cheese’?
