Ah, my buddy Daniel- forever in college.....


That's not true, baby -- it only seemed like forever. Besides, back then I only dreamed of being able to afford Corona.

Critics have long scorned Velveeta as a chemical concoction that symbolizes the low standard of the American sense of taste... Velveeta has especially come to symbolize the lowbrow cooking style associated with the 1950s, with its emphasis on cheap, easy-to-prepare meals using mass-produced ingredients.

(Taken from here)


This is the thing: Velveeta lines your arteries with chemicals that will someday kill you, but on the other hand, it has the advantage of being easy to blend. I've made cheese sauces with real cheese, and while they taste far better (if you get them right), Velveeta makes its own sauce even if you're barely paying attention.

True, you feel like you're eating paste, but it's paste as comfort food. "Why yes, June, I'll take seconds! And don't forget about the Beaver!"
