The annatto would make sense then. But it's probably missing a lot of other ingredients.

I'd eat it in limited situations.

Ah, yes, the ubiquitous "natural" yellow food coloring annatto. Now I'm starting to think that it might be some sort of processed cheese as well. But we don't eat that stuff, so still no.

I will eat them with a mouse.
I will eat them in a house.
I will eat them here or there.
I will eat them anywhere.

Cheez Whiz it is!
I admit I expected a lot more obtuse chemical names in the ingredient list.
Interesting.

Here's the list for Kraft Mac and Cheese mix:

I would have never expected to find anchovies in cheese whiz.

Interesting comparison.... for 1 ounce of each:
..................CHEEZ WHIZ ............Cheddar Cheese
Calories ........... 91................................ 113
Fat ...................6.9............................ .... 9
Cholesterol....... 25................................. 29
Sodium........... 541............................... 179
Carbs ..............3................................... 0
Protien............ 4................................... 7

The salt doesn't surprise me, but I thought it would be higher in calories, fat and cholesterol too.

Cheez Whiz is a thick cheese sauce - not comparing like products when you compare it to a chunk of real cheese.

Any cheese in the Whiz is diluted with those other non-cheese products.
