I like that sweet contrast with the tangy cheddar. Maybe Black Forest

I think we have a jar of that way back in the cupboard, of extremely  
ancient vintage. I believe it was purchased by someone other than  
myself (we do have some serious tomato allergies in the house). No,  
wait, it's Progresso Classico (whose red sauce is the preferred type  
around here, from among available slop in a jar, and among the people  
here who eat red stuff). I think somebody with a real mean streak  
purchased Ragu cheddar cheese sauce once. Well, I have not actually  
opened the Progresso Alfredo Sauce (the less said about Ragu Cheddar  
Sauce, the better), and it's presumably well past its expiration date.  
I just use it to frighten the troops when they get out of line.

"Don't start with me! I'm getting out the sauce!"

"No, please! We'll be good! Honest! Not the sauce!"
