A can of Easy Cheese and an example cracker spread

Easy Cheese is the trademark for a processed cheese product distributed by Kraft Foods, also referred to as aerosol cheese or spray cheese. It comes packaged in a spray can, much like canned whipped cream.


Can design

Different varieties of Easy Cheese

Although sometimes called "aerosol cheese", its container is not actually an aerosol spray can, because the cheese does not combine with the propellant (nitrogen) to turn into a fine mist upon being sprayed. Rather, the can contains a plastic cap which serves as a barrier and a piston whose movement squeezes the cheese through the nozzle in a solid column when the nozzle is pressed. The propellant, therefore, does not mix with the cheese. This explains why the can has a small rubber plug on its base. Normal aerosol cans are charged with all of their contents through the single opening at the top, but spray cheese cans are separately charged with cheese through the top and propellant through the bottom. The can design also ensures that the cheese can be dispensed with the can upright or inverted.
