The last of my Velveeta



I'm now totally out of Velveeta. Sigh. Hope I have some friends heading to the US soon!

can velveeta be shipped? i'll happily send some your way! sadly, i don't think the cinnamon rolls from sweet jill's would make it though!

Lexi said...

what IS velveeta?? and what does it taste like, a swede asking a swede ;)

Anne said...

Nicolette - I have no idea if it'd survive well.. but if you'd be willing to give it a try, noone would be more grateful than me :) (Sigh, don't even remind me about the cinnamon rolls.)

Lexi - Velveeta is.. "cheese". "Processed cheese product" is what I think they call it. It's not natural whatsoever, it's like bright orange rubber. However, it melts beautifully, and it's just SO good. Excellent on nachos, excellent on toast.. excellent as a dip. Or on pasta. But very, very, very fake. :)

Velveeta is one of those things that I think everyone very secretly loves. It is one of those things that I would hide in my grocery cart in case I ran into someone I knew at the store. It is "cheese" that requires no refrigeration and I am sure it would ship beatifully. I would be happy to send you some - from Oregon - what do you have to trade
>^..^<

We're also out of it. But we're going west in May :-) Velveeta and Kraft Macaroni & Cheese WILL be bought :-)

Velveeta, unopened, requires no refrigeration. You should be able to order some. If you get some leave a comment on my blog and I will give you a fantastic Velveeta vegetable soup recipe.

Not exactly wholefood, but feel-good food - that's more like it. Are those headed for the grill? :-)

You don't have to rely on just American travelers. We have Velveeta in Canada too. I actually have some in my fridge right now but I'm 500 km away so I can't use it in the recipe I meant to.

bea at La tartine gourmande said...

AHah, yes I could send you some too! ;-)

Anne said...

Oh, you guys! :) Sounds like my future might not be completely Velveeta-less after all! You are so sweet! I have the best readers - ever :)

phillyukgirl said...

Please, pleeeze Anne, tell me you grilled those sandwiches! I have a perverse love of Velveeta but the idea of having 'raw' slices of it scares even me!

Anne said...

Phillyukgirl - no worries, no worries! They went straight to the grill :)

nicolette said...

i'll surely send some to you! the thing i really miss in sweden is that spreadable soft cheese, that you can't find anywhere here!! on tunnbrod, i LOVE it. too bad it can't be sent though. email me your info and we can discuss furthur, if you'd like me to try...

Lexi said...

I don't want to sound like a snob, but it really sounds disgusting...
although I bet it's delcious... Anne are you sure no american food store here in Stockholm has it???

Anne said...

Nicolette - you've got mail :)

Lexi, I realise that it doesn't sound very appetizing. You need to develop a taste for it, I'm sure. Anyway, there's a faint rumor that Gray's has it *sometimes*. But I've never managed to catch it on such a day. (Actually, I'd be surprised if it's even legal here, considering all the additives and preservatives.)

Catalina said...

Well...sorry...I love your posts.....but I have to desagree with this one...........to me this is most horrible untastable cheese in the world...........:)

Hillevi said...

Dont they have it at the american store in Stockholm`????

Anne said...

Catalina, it's ok to disagree on this one :)

Hillevi - sadly, not that I've found. There's a faint rumour that they *sometimes* have it, but not one of the five million times I've looked. :)

Grace said...

Oh, ewww. I'm sorry, Anne. I love your blog, but I HATE Velveeta. My ex-husband adored the stuff, and I used to have to hide the bricks in the bottom of my shopping cart.

That said, I'd be happy to ship you some. Just let me know if you want me to - I think you've got a fair number of similar offers!

Troy Dominguez said...

if you like velveeta anne...you'll love this...its the best cheese dip ever! just melt the velveeta over a double broiler (or microwave) and mix in your favorite salsa to taste( usually about 2/3 cheese & 1/3 salsa) . Enjoy with chips!

Lacey said...

I like using velveeta to make grilled cheese sammiches to eat with veggie soup or whatever soup that suits you. It is good for sopping up the last of the juice of the soup.
