Good point, the OP wants "processed cheese product" not actual cheese....

Maybe just get Velveeta and follow the same instructions! It's too bad we can't just drive down to the USA and buy up some of that surplus "government cheese" they're so worried about!

They're great for hamburgers!
Ahh... so thats why they call it govenment cheese.

What about the new KD cheese I've seen everywhere?
That's my 2cents worth

They should just sell it at ALDI in 5 pound blocks for $2.99 ....

This might be as close as you'll get, grind it in a food processor (or just put it in a Ziploc and pound the bag with a rolling pin) to get it to the powdered form you need. Shelf stable and probably tastes better than Kraft:

OP isn't looking for mac and cheese powder nor popcorn seasoning.

It's neither specifically though, it's just ground up cheese powder...and OP said they like putting hte Kraft heavily on popcorn, so... it's not like it's those disgusting Kernals seasonings/Bulk Barn popcorn seasoning.

They also make this, which might be more similar? If it's a courser texture OP is after for some reason (why? does it not fall off the popcorn? Edit: Never mind, I guess it'd stick with the butter), like how cheap Kraft parmesan is, then no idea other than dehydrating your own and processing it.

That's probably closer to what the OP wants. Clearly shelf-stable grated cheddar-like flakes/powder wasn't selling (unlike the parmesan version) so it was discontinued.

"Government cheese" would be what we call "process cheese", what they call "American cheese" down there. But rather than sold in those individually wrapped thin slices, it's packed in normal blocks you slice yourself.

Spotted in-store at Zehrs today, maybe a re-brand of the discontinued Kraft Cheddar? Kraft KD Shaker
