The History of Velveeta

Kraft likes to begin the historical timeline of Velveeta cheese in the year 1928. That was the year Kraft began advertising its newly purchased line of smooth, creamy Velveeta cheese. Shockingly enough, Kraft did not develop the original recipe for the Velveeta cheese that so many of us depend on for good times at picnics. The true mastermind behind Velveeta cheese is genius immigrant Emil Frey. The year was 1918. For cheese lovers around the world, 1918 is very much like 1492 when Columbus discovered America, only Emil Frey discovered Velveeta cheese and it tastes better than 1492.

Kraft foods took over the production and marketing of Velveeta cheese in 1928. It was advertised as a health food and began its road to food fame as one of Kraft’s all-time greatest foods.


Velveeta specializes in cheese. The recipe is ungodly delicious and can be used to top off almost any meat, vegetable, pasta, or rice to make it into something special for the whole family. If you walk by Velveeta cheese in a grocery store, you will hear at least three people whispering “oh my God, I love Velveeta cheese,” the instant they notice they’re in the Velveeta cheese isle. It is a law of grocery shopping science.

Velveeta has evolved from its original block form into dozens of Velveeta cheese products, each of them containing the most important ingredient: Velveeta cheese.

  • Velveeta shells and cheese: This is the pinnacle of Velveeta combos

  • Velveeta scalloped potatoes: Even better
  • Velveeta shells and cheese bacon: Only bacon can compare with Velveeta cheese in terms of taste flavor explosion sensations. God bless Velveeta for this.
