Blog: Dean BestLincoln: a presidential Big Cheese

Dean Best | 7 July 2009

The Fourth of July is known the world over as perhaps the most patriotic date in the American calendar.

Commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence from us Brits, it's a day when the US can celebrate its traditions and history.

Perhaps not as well-known but certainly well-used is the phrase "Only in America", a quip that seeks to highlight how idiosyncratic US culture can be.

And only in America would a leading snack maker mark the Fourth of July with the creation of a 6ft-plus statue of President Lincoln ...  made of cheese.

Last weekend was the third occasion on which Kellogg's Cheez-It crackers brand marked Indepedence Day with a statue.

2007 saw the creation of a Mount Rushmore made from cheese.
