    Okay, drop everything folks; is Velveeta really cheese or something else?

    The Blackcloud’s are currently embroiled in an EXTREMELY important discussion after watching the Food Channel; “Velveeta”, what exactly is it? Mrs. BC2, much like many I know says it is cheese and insist on using it in dishes. I on the other hand believe it to be some form of orange-colored plumbers’ putty that somehow found its way into the culinary world; likely after some hapless pipe-fitter left it behind during a long forgotten commercial kitchen remodel. Since I do little work on my vehicles these days, I cannot conceive of buying this product as I leave the packing of U-joints and wheel bearings to my local service provider, I certainly can’t consider it for consumption, much like fake Mayonnaise or as it’s more popularly known, “Miracle Whip”…. What happened, did the government way back when decide to let captured Nazi scientists develop ridiculous chemical compounds for consumption as a joke and it got out of hand? Arhhh, the thought of either product makes me queasy, but again, there are those in my familial midst that consider both products to be a good thing. I need some sane input folks, otherwise I’m liable to face a future meal where I may have to shoot the main entrée or use it in a home improvement project, help….?

    It's a dairy "by-product" much like cow ears, pig snout, chicken lips, and rat feces.

    Technically, Velveeta is a processed cheese, meaning that it has been blended with preservatives and pasteurized. It is real cheese made from real milk and real whey, just like any other "natural" cheese. The reason for the processing is to give Velveeta a long, non-refrigerated shelf life before it is opened.

    I like Velveeta for grilled cheese sandwiches, mac and cheese, and other stuff that requires the cheese to be cooked. Ordinary cheese tends to separate out when it is cooked. If I want a ham and cheese sandwich I want sliced swiss or whatever, but if I want a really good grilled cheese nothing melts better or more evenly than Velveeta.

    A few years ago I watched one of those educational shows about cheese and remember that velveeta although is a natural cheese and pasturized etc as said above it was also a mistake and accidently discovered when it came out not being firm.But was then decided it would be marketed as it was.I know its not nasty but i dont eat the stuff.
    I dont like that squirt junk out of a can either which is probably the same stuff.

    I hate macaronni and cheese to and turns my guts to see people melt globs of velveeta in it and chow down.

    Onenut, my youngest son believes our civilization reached it's peak with the introduction of cheese in a can.
    I have not had Velveta in a long time but have not missed it. We use grated cheese here for all kitchen creations that require it. A blend of Italian and a blend of Mexican cheeses grace out 'fridge's deli drawer, next to the ham and the pepper jack cheese.
    BC II, if Velveta is not real cheese, is a microwave a real oven?

    I think processed and refined products are slowly killing us. The more you mess with your food the less nutritional it is.

    It's "something else" - SPAM is at least made of meat.

    It's weird that Velveeta isn't refridgerated on the store shelf. But it does make an outstanding grilled cheese sandwich!
