    taste

    There is no better cheese for a tuna melt than Velveeta.

    How about cheddar, gouda, havarti, or swiss? Ever try them? If not,
    you are missing out!

    Velveeta is crap cheese.

    Yes, I *have* tried all the cheeses you mentioned as the cheese in tuna
    melts, and all were inferior both in melting qualities and in taste to
    Velveeta. I've also tried mozzarella, kasseri, comte, gruyere, meunster,
    mimolette, and jack (both fresh and aged). None measured up to Velveeta.

    Cheddar and swiss were particularly nasty, exuding a bunch of oil as they
    melted.

    Canned tuna and Velveeta sounds more like a punishment than a meal.

    And good tuna melts, of course. And good chili/tomato/sausage dips,
    and good egg/cheese melt sammies, and nice crab dips, and ...

    This was the most interesting thing in the article:
    About 5% of the population buys about 75% of all Velveeta sold in the
    United States.

    I don't know about grocery stores elsewhere, but in my local Safeway, you
    have to look pretty hard to *find* the Velveeta. It's stashed on a bottom
    shelf next to the bags of dried beans, usually behind some free-standing
    display. So it makes sense that the only people who buy it are those who are
    seeking it -- and they'd have to be pretty determined seekers.

    Fun. :-)

    I love Velveeta but rarely purchase it any more.
    While far less expensive than "real" cheese per lb., I like it too much
    to keep it around...

    and the low cal Velveeta just does not do it for me.

    Melted Velveeta and Rotel.

    I had never had Velveeta until I got my first apartment. My roommate and I
    went shopping and he picked up some Velveeta to make grilled cheese. I was
    horrified at the thought. We never had it at home. And I had considered
    his mom to be a very good cook so I couldn't believe she would have bought
    it. And personally I didn't like the resulting sandwich at all.

    I do use it now in very small quantities for certain things, like Espinaca
    Con Queso, but it is mixed with other cheeses. Daughter won't touch the
    stuff though. She even shudders when she sees it. She saw some today at
    Costco. Really big boxes. She was mortified.

    To gross out your daughter further, mention it's the "orange" in Kraft
    m&c. The powdered form is the grossest. The Original (larger quantity
    box) comes with the cheese ooze in a packet to skip the milk and butter
    reconstituting steps. I'm a big box o' blue fan in this form!

    It's also the Cheez Whiz that gets put onto Philly cheesesteaks if you
    ask for it. I think it became popular on account of cheapness!!!

    In whatever form it comes in, it tastes pretty much the same.

    That struck me as interesting also! One of those little
    oddities...like more fish sticks are sold per capita in Knoxville, TN
    than anywhere else.
