(News) Missouri resident Kip Strode, 11, told friends on Wednesday that he thinks someone should make packets of string cheese easier to open. This he declared after successfully unwrapping three string cheese packets from his sack lunch. “I mean, I can open ’em. But sometimes they are just a little tricky. I had to bite (open) that one.”
Kip’s mom, Karen Strode, fully agrees.
“They can be a pain in the rear to open sometimes, can’t they? I’ve had a hard time unwrapping them myself sometimes, and I’m 36 years old. It’s probably a lot more challenging for someone my son’s age. Someone really needs to do something about this. I don’t know about you, but I care a lot about the welfare of children. And not just mine.”
No one from Horizon, the cheese’s manufacturer, could be reached for comment.
