Nope - but I know what Walmart carries - and what the OP asked. Velveeta is not sold in slices - and any other sliced cheese would be unique enough the OP probably would have mentioned it (Swiss, Provalone, etc. - Deli cheeses). That pretty much leaves us with the most abundant sliced cheese found at Walmart - American processed cheese.

Of course I had no more factual information to go on than you did when you said:

Maybe we were both wrong in making an assumption instead of playing 20-Questions first?

No kidding.... learn something everyday.
I had no idea (obviously) that Velveeta did not come in sliced form.

Thanks Michael! I know where not to look for it! (lol)

Well I don't know about your stores out there, but in our regular grocery stores they do sell Velveeta in slices. I don't know about WallyWorld though as I don't shop there.

They are sold in slices here too, BUT, it is not soft like the block of velveeta. It is solidish like american is.

Uh, Michael in FTW - Velveeta definitely does come in individually-wrapped slices. And WalMart (at least ours) does carry them. I've bought them there.

But as Texasgirl said, the slices aren't as soft as block Velveeta. I imagine they have to make the cheese firmer in order to make the slices easy to handle without falling apart. Taste is the same though.

Since they aren't as soft then maybe that could affect the way they melt. I thought that was like Velveeta's thing, to be ultra soft. I know when it is cubed it is great for pushing a pill into, doesn't crack like dry cheese can.

I agree. They'd melt, but not as quickly. They pretty much have the same firmness as individual slices of American Cheese, but with the somewhat different Velveeta taste.

(As for dog-pilling, my dogs claim that nothing beats a nice squooshy blob of Braunschweiger-style liverwurst. )

Braunschweiger is good, but I prefer to use something that isn't as stinky..... and I even eat the stuff! lol
For my own dogs I either "pill" them or drop it in their bowl. They aren't picky.

I'm going to look for Velveeta next time I'm at the store. Some members said they use it for grilled cheese sandwiches. I've always used American. Come to think of it, I don't know if I've ever eaten Velveeta cheese...

The slices are in the refrigerated case wherever the American Cheese slices are. The blocks are usually in the pasta aisle, the Mexican aisle, or sometimes both, depending on the store. They don't require refrigeration (until opening) due to being hermetically sealed in that foil packaging.
