The results of this Mexican chef's cheese experiment might surprise you – and nope, it doesn't melt

A chef from Mexico has carried out a cheesy experiment and the internet has gone into meltdown.


Jose Raul Reyes filmed himself holding a slice of processed cheese over a naked flame. So far, nothing groundbreaking.


What happens next, however, will surprise you.

Instead of melting into some gooey mound of deliciousness, the cheese just blackens and becomes charred – just like plastic would. Hmm.


The video, which was uploaded to Facebook, quickly notched up over 1,000,000 views in just a few hours. The comments soon followed with one viewer saying the processed cheese (sold by discount chain Aurrera) should be banned in Mexico because it "clearly isn’t cheese."
