I never intentionally eat it. I really dislike the flavour. It isn't even cheese. It's a "Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product" according to Kraft, which makes it.

Ok. I have had velveta and I like it. No it isn't real cheese, but it has it's place at my table.

Funny thing is...I have never tried Spam. Don't think I want to.

Yes.

Can of Rotel, some low sodium Velveeta, nuke, stir, nuke. Enjoy with just about anything. Tostitos are good, Fritos are awesome! Leftovers are nice in soups, though we rarely have any leftovers.

I put Velveeta in the same class as Cheese Whiz....something I don't keep on hand or want to eat.

I have always been amazed and amused that Velveeta turns up frequently in Amish recipes and cook books. It is sort of like better living through chemistry meets the simple life. Go figure!

I cleaned out all mind about years ago. Gave most to the daughter, but the left over ones I took to my sisters garage sale set up a table and put free on them. I had this elderly man come up and was going through them. I remember he said, his wife had just past a month before and now he has to learn how to cook, he said his daughter would cook for him, but the dog was getting to fat and he would have to learn if he wanted to eat. He told me all the things he acomplished and he was so proud. I gave him alot of ideas and he wrote down in a little notebook he had in his pocket. He took a couple of my books, and asked me if he could have my number. I knew who he was as he was a local person but yet I didnt know him. He called me one day to thank me and said maybe it wasn't a good idea as his daughter shows up for supper all the time now. he said he was baking cookies now and just acomplish lasagna and had the family over for sunday dinner. He was 84 at the time, He just past on about a month ago at 96 and was still very active.

How nice. I have a soft spot for the elderly. You can learn alot from them.
That is such a cute story. It gave me a chuckle, especially the part about the dog getting fat, lol.

I'm going to have to pick up some of the KD to try. I've never eaten it.

When I make my own Mac and Cheese, I use Velveeta. I think of it as pure junk food, but very tasty.
