Velveeta Processed Cheese Spread….So good


This ad from the mid-eighties is for the classic cheese spread, Velveeta. Which happens to be a food I am quite fond of despite a lot of scorn that has been heaped upon it by people who do not properly appreciate its magical qualities. What I like about this particular commercial is that they mention right in the jingle that it is a processed cheese spread. They are owning what they are and telling people, but also stressing that because it is what it is, you will not get a sensation like it from any other cheese product.

Just watching this makes me want to douse everything in creamy rich Velveeta.

As a kid I thought that Velveeta would make a nice name.
