As someone who didn't know what Velveeta was, fuck you. Fuck

Here's the thing:
It pains me to say this, but I actually really like (and prefer) Velvetta in a couple situations. The Velveeta & Ro-Tel
thing Nutshell mentioned is disturbingly tasty, and it's one of those products that doesn't work nearly as well with honest cheese. And Cheez Whiz (which is basically the same product) has a similar connection to Philly Cheese Steak. A Jucy Lucy needs something fake inside of it too.
The thing about Velveeta is, it's fake and it tastes fake, but the artificiality gives it a cooking texture which is kind of ideal in a lot of cases. You know the consistency of a room temperature brie? That's easy to reproduce if your "cheese" was invented in a food science lab in the 20's.
Intellectually, I recognize that "processed cheese food" is a crime. But I'm a cheese slut and I find it hard to discriminate.
