Until I asked about people's favorite shortcuts and convenience foods, I'd never heard of KD. Ironically, of course, I grew up on Kraft macaroni and cheese. After not eating it for ages, I bought it and found, that like many childhood favorites ... well, didn't live up to what I loved as a kid. It seemed chalky and salty, and didn't taste in the least like cheese. And I loved it as a kid. I do have to say, though, that I haven't tried it in easily a decade or more.

At the risk of creating a cross border war I think I should mention that some things that we get on both sides of the border are SIGNIFICANTLY different here. Most notably both Cheez Whiz and Kraft Dinner. My sister lived in NJ for several years and would have us ship her Cheez Whiz because the American made stuff was really icky. Same went for KD, it just did NOT taste the same south of the border.

So, weird as that is, I like the stuff up north, but not the stuff you get down there. Guess I should add that to my poll huh?

Oh wait! I should also put on the poll "Only KD made with cheez wiz in place of butter!" I have a couple of friends who won't eat it any other way!

Kraft Mac n Cheese

There were days in college where this stuff was the only thing in the cabinet. I had eaten it as a child and so it was not bad at all to me. I liked to have it with cornbread.

Honestly, when I eat it now, I am usually sick with a cold or what not. Meaning I don't have it often. I'm unsure whether I like its taste or that it is salty enough to be tasted when I'm sick....or whether it simply makes me remember how Mom took care of me when I was unwell as a child. But I do like it and make it just like the directions say on the box.

It's passable in a pinch with enough butter and milk. Liked the stuff at Horn & Hardart's automat a little better.

I grew up on Mom's mac n cheese. It was one of her budget meals. Since my DH hates the stuff I will buy a box two or three times a year to satisfy my cravings! Real comfort food!

My mom used to make KD with hot dogs cooked in tomato soup. My dad and brother loved it. I liked the KD part just not the tomato soup and hot dogs together.
