Once decades ago, legendary San Francisco columnist Herb Caen found Velveeta in the gourmet section of some place in Chico. It was an ongoing joke forever.
/RIP dear Herb.

I know that the Velveeta processed food product is so heavily processed that it has very little discernible cheese flavor left but I still like it.

I like it, but really buying a whole loaf of that stuff is crazy for me.  I'd use about 1/6th of the loaf for some queso and want to save the rest for a week or two, just to moderate my intake and try to be a bit healthy.  But by that time the rest of the loaf is mostly bad and I've wasted at least half of it.

If it was real cheese it couldn't go bad. :/

Are you not even wrapping it up? Velveeta will save forever in the refrigerator.

You could just buy a small loaf.

Fixed that.  Velveeta IS NOT cheese.

It is processed flavored milk.

About as appetizing as the plastic it is wrapped in

I didn't have the same result.  It seems to harden into some un-edible hard orange stuff from the corners in and from the cut side inwards.   And I wrapped it with the foil that came with it, more cling wrap stuff and put it in a bag as well as sucking the air out of the bag.

I don't know too much about you, but that orange hard stuff isn't going into the rest of my recipies.

Only the Velveeta sold to Wal-Mart has this problem? I guess Kraft had to make sure they met Wal-Mart's low cost demands...

YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL NUTS.  Processed cheese tastes like crap on EVERYTHING.

I love mac and cheese, I love cheeseburgers, I love quesadillas, but even when it is 2AM and I am inebriated on various psychoactive chemicals, I still have enough self respect to grate some havarti or aged cheddar.

Also, I had never heard of Velveeta until Fark.  Apparently even though it is available in Canada, stores here in Toronto have enough human decency not to stock it.

Processed flavored milk? What the hell do you think cheese is?

Let me guess; you also like beards and bikes, and play retro video games at bars where they only serve Trappist ale.

It might actually be against the law to sell Velveeta in Canada, or it is called something else.  For example, "Kraft Macaroni and Cheese" (the blue box)  is called "Kraft Dinner" in Canada because the Canadian version of the FDA doesn't recognize the shiat in the packet as cheese.

Cheese has enzymes added.  Velveta takes milk and just adds flavoring and color

but then you wouldn't know anything about cheese, and couldn't tell the difference between a Cheese curd and a cheese stick

ding ding!

Velveeta is made by adding back whey seperated from curds, to make it melty. There's your evil process.

"Oh noes! But the FDA sez it's 'cheese food' or somesuch!"

The same FDA that won't allow many fresh French cheeses in the US because they're not processed enough? Screw their definitions. If you like V, eat it. If you don't, don't.

/some other processed cheese - feta, boursin

Wisconsin beer and cheese IS the best. Just ask a Wisconsinite and they'll tell you. Actually, you don't even need to ask. They will tell you, multiple times, without asking, during a conversation on 16th century French literature.

Oh and said Wisconsite will most definitely be fat.
