(WIVB) – Millennials have been blamed for a lot of things, but their latest victim is American cheese.
Bloomberg says U.S. sales of processed cheese are down for the fourth straight year.
They claim millennials don’t like preservatives and they’re demanding nourishment from recognizable ingredients.
Restaurants are listening. Wendy’s is offering asiago, and Panera replaced American cheese with a four-cheese combo that includes smoked gouda.
