The Great Velveeta Shortage of 2014 (Velveetageddon)
Hotair ^

Posted on 01/08/2014 10:48:37 PM PST by chessplayer

We live in a country where a momentary shortage, that has not yet even materialized, of a specific, beloved processed cheese product, is a national news story deemed worthy by citizens of being suffixed into a “-pocalypse”

Won't be long before they blame the polar vortex/global warming for the shortage.

I’ve found Velveeta to be of value only when heading into the Boundary Waters in the late Summer.

Polar vortex froze all the velveeta trees?

Who amongst us has not found comfort in a toasted velveeta cheese sangwich and a bowl of campbells tomater soup?

Hell! submariners live on it!

And I don’t know what the knuckleheads on the last thread, that said the cheese whiz in MRE’s is better are on about.

That stuff sucks and the crackers are even worse.

Fortified for your displeasure.

Velveeta might look like cheese but is only a notion.

Now this person made Velveeta from raw milk

Finally...the Truth

An in-depth look at one of the most villified foods in the United States. It’s right up there with Spam. Get the history, find recipes you won’t believe, learn how to make your own, find out what you do when someone gives you 30 pounds of Velveeta as a gift, and see how Velveeta influences the Arts. Enjoy!

Possible contrived shortage - wonder how bad their sales were. Good marketing ploy, particularly because the Super Bowl is coming up and chips and cheese dip are at the heart of the must have grazing dishes.

Velveeta and Rotel...

Try this! To the traditional Velveeta/Rotel nacho blend, add cooked ground hamburger and an equal amount of cooked ground sausage. It makes an INCREDIBLE dip.

Or, the extra spicy version: velveeta, ground fried chorizo, and diced jalapenos.

During the Reagan years, there was a surplus of cheese—so much so that the government gave it away.

Your ignorants are showing, tet68. Everybody knows Velveeta is a tuber, although that doesn't mean it's not a victim of "anthropogenic global warming," of course.

When I wuz a kid, we were nearly out of our way in Algonquin Park and some camp peeps started up their kitchen to feed us some fried burgers. They tasted great after eating Chuck Wagon dehydrated foods for a week.

Does Velveetageddon go along with a Spampocalypse?

There are creditable generic versions of Velveeta that can be had at many a grocery. I think this fear is cheesy to the max.

“YumYum, will give it a go.”

You’re not going to believe how good that is. Cook the hamburger and sausage, equal portions, and drain. Add to the nacho cheese... wow.

I took some to a church fellowship one time and kept it hot in a crockpot. I got comment after comment asking “WHAT IS THIS???” They couldn’t believe it was so simple. It was a real hit.

The Kraft plant is under construction in my town. That might have something to do with the shortage of Velvetta.

Substitute a large jar of Paces Picante for the Rotel and add a pound of browned Italian sausage, can of cream of mushroom soup and a handful of jalepeno slices and you’ve got a meal to eat with tortilla chips.
