Kraft announces that you may not double dip this year because Kraft has not been supplying enough Velveeta Cheese throughout all of the USA. There is ample supply in Chicago but on the Coasts there may be a run on it

Just when everyone thought we could make it through the cold spell. Kraft has announced that there may not be enough Velveeta Cheese for all those superbowl parties. It is being hoarded though in places like Chicago and Green Bay. What a travesty not enough Velveeta Cheese!

don’t you have to put the word “cheese” in quotation marks when referring to Velveeta?

So that means people actually buy that vile “cheese”? We got better cheese in MRE’s than that cheese like substance.

Oh dear.

Velveeta gives you the runs?
Aquavelva in short supply?
They don’t even give that stuff away in government
food hand outs to disaster victims.

The Mexican version of Velveeta, heated and mixed with a couple of tablespoons of red wine makes a fabulous hot cheese dip. Yum!

Bob Kraft owns the New England Patriots as well as all the Velveeta before it is sold to the super markets. Which one is the real cheese?

Well, I think it’s a pasteurized process cheese food.
There used to be a great article about how the stuff
was made but I don’t know how to find it now.
Essentially 60 percent can be called natural cheese,
50 percent of the remainder is called some thing else,
then 20 percent of what’s left is called process cheese
and then the remainder of that is called cheese food.

Never shoot a block of Velveeta cheese at close range with a .357, you can get covered head to foot with small orange dots.

Don’t ask me how I know this.

It has a really now melting point. Good to throw salsa or other goodies into and make a dip.

Or when it dries hard it makes sealant for boats.

The dirty little secret is that Velveeta shines in cooking. It makes the best homemade mac ‘n cheese, when cooked down with butter and milk.

Prices on dairy products have shot up in recent weeks.

The last time they bounced up significantly was when Congress was delaying the Farm Bill. As soon as it passed, the prices dropped.

I suspect the current high prices are due to the same: Congress not passing the Farm Bill — yet.

The only time I buy Velveeta is when it’s a sale combo with another item I was going to buy making it’s cost less than the off brand cheese. FYI, it freezes well.

What a blast from the past.

I don’t think I’ve eaten Velveeta in 50 years.

Okaaaayyy....I can see no earthly reason for shooting a block of Velveeta with a gun of ANY type, let alone a .357 Magnum. Tell me....was alcohol involved?

It’s actually “cheese product”. In the sense that potted meat is “meat product”. Note to self: never eat anything with “product” on the label.

Yup. It’s some kind of polymer whipped-up with “oil” and colored with orange dye then salted to obtain your daily 2.3 grams of salt out of 2 ounces of “cheese”

After I escaped childhood, I never ate another bite of Velveeta. That must have been at least 60 years ago.

I still remember how awful it was.

It’s an underhanded Communist/Democratic plot, to get revenge on all “the Duck Dynasty States”!

Yesterday, when ‘She’ and I were ‘making groceries’, there it was, both on the regular shelf, as well as where all the ‘chilled sandwich cheese’ resides!!! No shortage, then, for sure!

You are correct, I don’t. Got nothing against guns, believe STRONGLY in the 2A.

So, what DOES warrant shooting a block of Velveeta? I am now VERY curious.

Avtually, it's cheese. No oil.

Velveeta: Nonfat milk and milkfat, whey, milk protein concentrate, milk, maltodextrin, and then less than 2% of the standard list of salt, lactic acid, cheese culture, etc....

I once had this wicked, and simultaneously stupid, idea of sending out invitations to our friends to attend a wine and cheese party.

When the guests arrived we would serve Thunderbird wine and Velveeta cheese.

We also would have been killed on the spot.
