Sargento's Perfect Pairing: Your Money and Sargento
This commercial has exactly one message: that it's a really good idea to buy cheese in the most economically stupid way imaginable.
It's not rocket science, people. The smaller the unit you purchase, the more you are paying. Cheese is expensive enough already, but anyone who knows anything about shopping knows that the way to save money when buying it is to go for the largest block you know you will be able to consume while it's at peak flavor. A block of cheese is one price. The same block shredded is much more expensive. The same block sliced up is much more expensive. The same block sliced up and sold in individual units is MUCH more expensive.
Buying it by the bite? Well, it's your money, stupid. But when you are old enough to trust yourself with a knife, and greedy enough to want to keep as much as your hard-earned dough in your pocket as possible, stay away from dumb "convenience" food like this.
And I'm not even going to START on the wasteful packaging. This is one step above those hideous Snackables things. Grrrr....
