Bad news sports fans: Some store shelves are running low on Velveeta, right during a prime season for the popular processed cheese, according to a company spokeswoman.

Some consumers may be unable to find Velveeta products in the next couple of weeks, Kraft Foods Group spokeswoman Jody Moore said by e-mail Tuesday. She did not provide any specific reasons for the shortage.

"This is really a short-term situation that is more noticeable during our current period of increased seasonal demand," she said.

Known for its smooth texture that makes it ideal for dips and cheeseburgers, Velveeta is a popular eat for game-watching parties - from college match-ups to the Super Bowl.

    The only recipe I can stand to eat using Velveeta is the standard Rotelle dip with chips. But I have to say it's not the worst processed cheese out there...that honor falls to Cheeze Whiz.

    CNN's motto: The best way to debunk a lie, is to create it in the first place.
    I've noticed a pattern of CNN reporting on 'tech scammers' ('ScareWare'), who they were advertising for, just months before.
    I don't think we can trust CNN as a news source, when we can't trust them to pass on lying about SuperBowl snack shortages.

  4. Best dip ever!

    Melt a block of Mexican Veleeta with a can of Rotels and a can of green chilis. Dip with Munchos.

      Velveeta is NOT cheese. It's a processed cheese food product, and thoroughly disgusting.

    There's also a pending oil shortage. Coincidence?

      I am so with you on that one! Nastiest "cheese product" ever invented.

      I'm not a fan of velveeta either. I much prefer to spend my cheese allotment on the real stuff.
