Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Crackers

These came out a little while back, and ever since they did I’ve been debating whether or not to give them a try.  I’m not huge into cheese-flavored crackers, so I might not be the target consumer for this product.  But September has been a pretty sparse month for posts, so what the hell?

While I do enjoy the occasional plate of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, I’m not obsessive about it.  There are better mac and cheeses out there, though for my money, Kraft is the only mac and cheese that I’ll buy in a box.  I don’t follow their directions, though.  I prefer a little less butter and a lot less milk.

So how do the crackers compare to the genuine article?  Let’s see.

Toxic.  Just like the real thing!

Upon opening the box, I give it the sniff test.  Hmmm.  Smells like crackers.  No real hint of cheese.  Then the bite.  They’re lighter than I thought.  They do taste a little bit like Kraft Mac & Cheese.  A little saltier.  I will definitely be eating some of these, though I probably won’t be buying another box.

It’s a noble effort from our friends at Kraft.  I imagine if you’re a big fan of cheese crackers, you won’t be disappointed.  Me?  I think I’d prefer a nice big plate of Kraft Mac & Cheese.

  1. I’m so old school I just boil up noodles, drain them, and melt slices of cheese into it. I’m not sure how to infuse that taste into a cracker. Although I did develop a taste for Pepperidge Farm Gold Fish when the kids were toddlers and that’s pretty much all they’d eat.

    What is white cheddar anyway?
