To KD or Not to KD?

Had a little giggle recently on the convenience food thread. Just wondering how many of us still eat Kraft Dinner (Macaroni and Cheese) or other highly processed things from time to time. And wondering how many of us will admit to it! LOL!

I bought it once to give it a try. I just did not like it at all.

It's not about its being a convenience food (see other thread), just didn't like the taste.

When I make it, I have to add cream cheese and some shredded cheddar when stirring.

I grew up on the stuff. Now it makes me gag. I can't even get past the smell.

We also grew up on spaghetti-O's and canned ravioli. I guess kids will eat anything!

Are we talking about the classic blue box "It's the Cheesiest" macaroni and cheese?

yup, still eat it, still like it quite a bit. Like to add dried garlic and onion and some
chicken bullion to the water, but otherwise, bring it on.

Now, if you were asking about Hamburger Helper... uh, no. THey just don't taste
as good as the used to taste....

i keep a box in my pantry. i like thier thick/creamy kind.
like 15 yrs. ago i loved that after school, usually after several cheese singles, pepper, creamcheese, sour cream or additional milk or cream were blended in, garlic-powder, Frank's, mustard, worcestershire.
thier microwave kind was ucky, starchy & watery.
my stash usually expires, more due to me baking my own or baking a stouffer's.
that's probably like 1 of 2 foods i prefer margarine in. my brother, too. we're anti-margarine.
oops, another add-on, i used to take the cheese packets from other boxes of macaroni 'n cheese & double the amount of cheese power then return the open box sans the cheese to the cupboard & reduce the milk amount. THEN my Dad noticed.......
that's like a quintessential kiddo food.

I sort of figured there would be a few of us KD lovers out there. No matter how much fun it is to make really wonderful food, there are some comfort foods that I really love. KD is one of them. I don't dress it up at all. Although my daughter's friend says I make the best KD ever. LOL. Must be my expert stirring.

It was one of my favorite junk food treats, but I don't eat dairy anymore. One of the great side effects of being vegan is that there are very few highly processed food choices to lead you astray.
