    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 (KRFT, Fortune 500) 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 shortage comes on the heels of a string of college bowl games, which culminated in Monday's BCS National Championship game between Florida State and Auburn, and in the midst of NFL playoff games.

    And the Super Bowl, which for some Americans is as much about the snacks as it is the game, is less than a month away.

    Kraft's statement came after AdAge reported a Velveeta shortage at some East Coast grocery stores. It's unclear if other regions are affected.

    I bought a 2 pack at christmastime. Gave one to my daughter, the other will probably go bad before I use it all.

    Pumpernickle Party Squares
    Breakfast Sausage
    Velveeta
    Jalapeño slices (opt)

    Lay out the little bread squares on a cookie sheet.
    Spread the cooked breakfast sausage on them. I do it pretty thick
    Lay a Jalapeño slice on the sausage
    Lay a slice of Velveeta on top of everything
    350 for 15-20 min until everything is hot and melted.
