If you've ever tasted what's known as “government cheese,” you won't soon forget it. Its flavor was described as somewhere between Velveeta and American cheese and smacked of humiliation or gratitude for the people who couldn't afford not to eat it.
American cheese is simply one type of cheese. Government cheese is a term that was used disparagingly to indicate the quality of cheese the government issued to poor people whether they were welfare recipients, members of a Native American tribe on a reservation or incarcerated prisoners.
Government cheese was colored orange. It was distributed to low-income families through the Temporary Emergency Food Assistance Program. Government cheese was nominally removed in the 1990s when the dairy market stabilized.
Farmers started making way too much milk, which was turned into way too much cheese. At least 30 million pounds of it was distributed through nutrition assistance programs, and suddenly a block of surplus dairy product became a neatly packaged symbol of economic status known as “government cheese.”
By the FDA's standards, Kraft isn't permitted to refer to Singles as "cheese" because this word indicates that a product is made with at least 51 percent real cheese. This is why the label reads "pasteurized prepared cheese product."
Government-Cheese was marked USDA, and was better than velveeta or Kraft cheese anyday. Cheese-toast was filling and kind of tasty! It came in blocks roughly the size and thickness of 2 bricks.

Velveeta is a brand name for a processed cheese product that tastes like an American cheese. It was invented in 1918 by Emil Frey of the "Monroe Cheese Company" in Monroe, New York. In 1923, "The Velveeta Cheese Company" was incorporated as a separate company, and sold to Kraft Foods Inc. in 1927.
What is the restaurant known for? Aside from the fact that it's run by two well-known actors and their chef brother, and the fact that it's the star of its own reality show, Wahlburgers is known for its comfortable, friendly atmosphere that appeals to every generation.
While the taste has been described using a wide range of adjectives both good and bad, the general consensus is that it could be best categorized as a sort of mild cheddar. Many people have compared it to Velveeta—or, at least, the “poor man's version of Velveeta.”
James L. Kraft of Illinois patented a manufacturing process in 1916 that allowed for mass production of his famous orange cheese "product". Containing a mixture of colby and cheddar with curds and emulsifiers, the Kraft company's almost-cheese became enormously popular during the first half of the 20th century.
The best way to melt cheese is add a little to the pan at a time, stir it until it melts and then add some more. If you put all the cheese in at once, it won't melt evenly and you could be left with a clumpy sauce.

Even though American cheese is far from pure, that doesn't necessarily mean it's bad for you. One Kraft single is 60 calories, which isn't mind-bogglingly high, and the slice has protein and calcium. However, the high amounts of sodium and fat will keep it from landing on a list of healthy foods.
The United States' dairy surplus has reached a record high, rounding out at 1.4 billion pounds of cheese.
The growing surplus of American-made cheese and milk means that prices are declining. ... "It's the same as it is for everything else: If you've got too much of something, the price has to go down until consumption rises," Novakovic says.
We know it's not all-natural dairy cheese. But what is Cheez Whiz actually? Cheez Whiz is the jarred, shelf-stable cheese sauce sold by Kraft — not to be confused with the spray cheese called Easy Cheese sold in an aerosol can. When Cheez Whiz got its start, it was made mostly of cheese — albeit extremely processed.
Spoiler alert: Today, there is little-to-no real cheese in Cheez Whiz. You may have already guessed this based on its distinctly un-real-cheese-like flavor and the fact that the packaging spells "cheese" with a "z."
