Simply Wrong Food: Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Crackers

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

You know what we really need? One more cheese-flavored cracker. My cracker needs are just not being met by Nabisco Cheddars, Cheese Nips, Cheese-its, Cheese Thins, cheese crackers filled with peanut butter, cheese crackers filled with cheese, and those packs of cheese that you spread on the cracker. Thank God Kraft stepped in to fill the void.

Kraft Mac and Cheese was just too much work anyways, what with adding margarine and stuff. Then there was Kraft Instant, where you had to actually add water. No, I need my mac and cheese now. The only downside there is that you can't stick them on the tines of your fork and make it look like a pan flute.

So yeah, in the name of scientific research I actually ate these. They are basically stale crackers with that envelope of cheese dust applied liberally. Not to get down on cheese dust, it saved my ass once when my my nephews were whining for cheese corn. Whatever you do in your rush for your cheese fix, just don't sniff it; it really burns.
