News Flash: Velveeta Shortage!

Velveeta, America's favorite "cheese" is running low, and consumers may be unable to find the iconic product on shop shelves. Kraft Foods, the producer of the famed "cheese," did not name the cause of the shortage, and only said it is due to the "nature of manufacturing." This potential Velveeta shortage is particularly troubling since it comes at a time when many Americans are planning for their Super Bowl parties. Velveeta, a favorite Super Bowl appetizer, is central to many dishes served on Super Bowl Sunday. It's like cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving dinner. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Velveeta, it's a processed cheese product that doesn't taste like cheese. It has a soft gummy texture with a slight chemical aroma.
