I am very disappointed about Kraft discontinuing the farlic cheese roll. This cheese is used in sooo many families' holiday recipes (and not just holidays)and is printed in so many cook books. I read one lady's comment that she just had a cook book published that lists this particular cheese in several recipes. Every holiday season, my children and other family members look forward to me making the garlic grits and brocolli casselrole and it just won't taste the same anymore. There just isn't a substitute that can replace Kraft's garlic cheese roll. PLEASE bring it back!

I have been to 3 groceries looking for the garlic cheese for our broccoli casserole. Now I find it has been discontinued? Some things in life should be constant - including this cheese.

I found a recipe on one of the Kraft Garlic Cheese forums. You take 1-1/2 lbs. sharp cheddar cheese (grated), 3 oz. cream cheese, 1/2 lb Velveeta, 1 tsp. seasoned salt, garlic powder to taste. Soften cheeses and mix together well ans shape into 4 rolls and wrap in foil.

I tried this and it does taste very similar to Kraft's version. Althouth, it doesn't have the "creamy" texture like the Kraft garlic roll. My grits were slightly dryer/stiffer - but the taste was very good. I think I need to adjust my recipe by using one less egg.

Apparently they carry a garlic cheddar (shredded in a bag). I have not tried it nor have I looked for it. I doubt it will be the same as the garlic cheese log. I tried velveeta -- awful!

Kraft, you are going to have one disappointed family Christmas morning in Richmond, Virginia (and everywhere else that has loved the garlic grits)... i am going to try your "Baked Cheese Grits" ... but, i am hoping that all of us will not be faced with this dilemma again and that we will see one of our favorite "Kraft Garlic Cheese" hanging in those little baskets in our grocery stores next year ...

Good News! I found a garlic cheese log at Wal-Mart that tastes incredibly the same as our beloved Kraft Garlic Cheese log. A friend told me that Wal-Mart (I live in the Missouri Bootheel) carries a garlic cheese log around the holidays. I found it and it is vacuum packed in clear packaging and labled the same as meat is labled. It was not with the other cheeses, nor in the deli, nor with the specialty cheeses. It was in a refrigerated bin in the middle of the isle in front of the lunch meat cases. I made my garlic cheese grits and they were marvelous - tastes the same! The garlic cheese log is made by Oberle Meats of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. Their website address is:
The outside of the garlic cheese log has paprika sprinkled on it; don't pay any attention to this. It does not affect the taste or color one bit. You're gonna be very happy after you taste it!

I have one Kraft Cheese left and it's out of date. I looked on the ingredients and it seems it only have Kraft American Cheese and garlic and milk. I'm going to try and make my own. That is unless they quit making the block of American cheese. If the garlic cheese didn't sell would be one thing but you almost had to fight for it in the grocery store. Kraft what is your problem? Do you not know where you get your profits from? You know we can go elsewhere to get our cheese and we can probably get another company to come up with a great garlic cheese product. Ladies maybe that's what we need to do is go to other companies and work on them. They will get the money and Kraft will be left out.

My friend works for Kraft and said they (Kraft) sold the machine(s) that made the log cheese. I say let's find out where it was sold and buy it! We could sell it to each other and make a fortune!

I have an old recipe from my grandmother for a broccoli cheese dip that uses the garlic cheese roll. I found a substitute last year, but it wasn't as good. I got compalints from the entire family. The cheese grits suffered as well, and don't get me started on the broccoli casserole. We want our cheese logs back!!

So disappointed Kraft discontinued their garlic cheese. This was very poor marketing as this product was used by my entire family.

I have to add a "ditto" to all of the comments above. Every year, especially at Christmas time, my family asks for me to make garlic cheese grits. They just do not taste the same now. I have made the substitute cheese mixture suggested on other websites, and as mentioned above, it does taste similar, but is not the creamy texture. I will look for the other cheese at Wal-Mart. Sure hope it works! Wish Kraft would bring back this cheese...

A good substitute in Kraft's Old English and a good quality garlic salt.

I have a dish tjat was taught to me by my aunt and it calls for kraft garlic cheese. Please bring this back on the market. I dont think u would regret it. It has to be one of the most popular cheeses ever made.

I am dumbfounded that Kraft would stop making the garlic cheese roll. What are they thinking?! Hope they read these comments from everyone across the nation.

I substituted by grating Cheddar cheese and adding garlic - what a pain!
