The old fashioned flavor of this sandwich spread comes from Velvetta Cheese. My mother was from the South and made it for me and my sister and brothers all the time. My children grew up in Calif and when I made it for them, they said the kids at school laughed at them! The other children had never heard of it! So I didn't pack it in my children's lunch box anymore but they all ate it at home and now that they are all grown, I have to make it every time they come home!
