Wikipedia: Velveeta
Velveeta is a brand name for a cheese analogue similar to 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. In 1925, it advertised two varieties, Swiss and American. The firm was purchased by Kraft Foods Inc. in 1927.
 
Wikipedia: Spam (food)
Spam (stylized as SPAM) is a brand of salty processed canned pork made by Hormel Foods Corporation. It was introduced by Hormel in 1937 and gained popularity worldwide after its use during World War II.  By 2003, Spam was sold in 41 countries (and trademarked in over 100) on six continents. In the U.S., Hawaii is the state with the highest per capita consumption of Spam. It has become an ingredient in Hawaiian cuisine.

Not sure why a shortage of Velveeta is a concern. Isn’t #Velveeta the spam of cheese?

Admittedly I might also be partial to American Cheese specifically because Velveeta has always been deeply ingrained in Tex-Mex cooking.
Velveeta is to Texas what SPAM is to Hawaii.

Replying to @Palle_Hoffstein @Zython86 and 2 others
A lot of hate on American cheese feels classist.
Like fuck off I can get 20 slices for a dollar and it’s a perfectly fine standby for nachos and grilled cheese and burgers.
