Velveeta Cheesepocalypse Causes Queso Contemplation
Velveeta alone is so magical, it has its own fan fiction. People make art featuring it and write poetry about it (Note: Not good poetry). Ro*Tel is less often praised in such lofty forms, probably because generic cans of tomatoes and chiles taste similar, but to really do queso justice, it must contain both Ro*Tel and Velveeta. And those two things only.

Kraft Foods seems pretty confident that the demand for Velveeta won't surpass the loaves being made available at grocery stores around the country. Comments from Kraft seem aimed at assuring consumers that they will have Velveeta for the Superbowl and the Olympics and those rainy days when you feel like eating a large portion of melted cheese product alone in your bed.
But I'm not taking any chances. I'm stocking up. Twenty pounds of Velveeta and 20 cans of Ro*Tel ought to be enough to last me through the winter.
Bring it, Cheesepocalypse.
