It was the anniversary of the founding of the company I work for so the boss bought a bunch of burgers and hot dogs for us to BBQ at the park by our office. I came out late and noticed all the burgers had already been eaten and the boss was declaring someone needed to eat all the remaining hot dogs so I packed away five chili dogs with melted Velveeta cheese. It was crappy Americana in all of its glory. ;)

the only thing more crappy American than melted Velveeta is the old government/welfare cheese

and Carrot Top

Isn't Velveeta welfare "cheese"? I honestly just assumed the boss was a cheap mother fucker. I mean, all you would give us is a processed "cheese" which can't even be called cheese in parts of the world? Really? Even hot dogs are a highly processed food of questionable origin.

Dunno, I haven't had it since I was a kid. My grandfather used to like it, not sure how he got his hands on it. Maybe traded welding favors for friends for cheese?

I was not a big fan.

I can remember one thing my mother used to make back in the 80's with Velveeta which I liked. She made a dip using a can of chili and an equal amount of Velveeta which you then heated in a microwave to produce a cheesy-chili dip perfect for tortilla chips. Other than that I can't think of anything made with Velveeta which I liked.

I am unaware of velveeta, but for burgers processed cheese rules.

I loved Velveeta when I was a kid.

I think one school of the Philly cheese steak debate insists on using velveeta.

I always thought cheese steak called for cheese whiz out of the can.

I think you're right, although cheeze whiz is probably nothing more than velveeta in a can.

Only if it's fuzzy on the outside.

I did some shopping today. Velveeta was labeled as a "processed cheese like food" while cheese whiz was labeled "a processed cheese like substance". My girlfriend remarked that it was sad that cheese whiz couldn't even be labeled as a "food", it was a "substance". Ick.


edit: I bought Velveeta brand "boxed processed cheese" and Walmart brand "Cheeze Whiz".
