Growing up Bronx: Government Cheese

Did you grow up poor, the way I did? If you received a helping hand from Uncle Sam, you will definitely appreciate and recognize this picture!

To this day, this is still my favorite type of cheese! There are some things that you never forget, and that you never stop loving. I tell you guys, there was nothing like biting into a sandwich that was made up of unevenly chopped blocks of cheese. There was nothing like the labor of having to chop that cheese off of the block!

Have you ever had the government cheese? Do you care to share any of your old childhood memories?
