Again, that's the US variety. The Canadian version is "Made from Cheddar, Mozzarella, and Swiss Cheeses" Our ingredient list is different as well. Similar, but not the same.
Hmm. Did not know that. We usually get the low fat Velveeta, which probably has a few additional ingredients. Love it anyway.

Are you talking about this product?
Kraft Three Cheese Blend Grated Cheese Topping (8 oz.)
This is Moz, Swiss, and Cheddar. This is found in US as well.

No BigJim...see my post #20 in this thread. I mean Velveeta. I have no clue what that other stuff is but it looks interesting.

Went to the Kraft Canada web site. Found this. I would never have dreamed that Velveeta in Canada is made with actual cheese. Wish we could get it here.
Velveeta cheese product has been helping Canadians make the cheesiest, most delicious meals for over 25 years! It’s great for melting, either plain on toast or as part of your family’s favourite meals. And you can feel good about serving Velveeta to your family - it’s made from a blend of three cheeses – Cheddar, Mozarella, and Swiss. The best part? Velveeta has 50% less fat than Cheddar cheese!

Its scary yummy. And pretty killer melted with salsa served with chips.

I gotta say, I'm a little puzzled by why so many Kraft products are different in Canada. Cheez Whiz is different too. My sister would have us bring her jars of it when she lived in NJ. And Kraft Dinner is apparently different too. OH CRAP, I just remembered I was supposed to send Andy a box of it to compare. SORRY ANDY! I sent one and it went astray somewhere (another Canada Post reference). I'll send one this week!

Mmmm, velveeta melted with milk and fresh sliced jalapenos. Very tasty on tortilla chips.
