Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese

Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese is a great comfort food, especially for cold wintery days.

I love mac & cheese in any form really but I grew up eating my mom’s homemade macaroni and cheese and lots of box forms aren’t very similar.  But I got to try out the new Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese which uses full size macaroni noodles and is made just for grown ups and reminds me more of my mom’s homemade.  It uses real cheese and there are five new flavors:  Hearty Four Cheese, Sharp Cheddar & Bacon, White Cheddar, Creamy Broccoli, and Southwest Tortilla.  Out of all of these, I like the white cheese ones best (Creamy Broccoli and White Cheddar.)

I thought it was really convenient how everything you need to make these is included except for a little water, which you can get most places.  Just follow the easy directions, microwave for 4.5 minutes and voila!  You have a warm and hearty bowl of macaroni and cheese.  These would be great to take to work!    They use real Kraft cheese and have these little packets of toppings like bread crumbs, bacon bits, or tortilla strips.

My kids have all grown up on the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in the blue box because it’s much more convenient for me to make that than homemade.  It’s fun to have them try something that’s a little more like homemade!  So what do you think?  Do you want to try it out?

  1. After Ma’s, I couldn’t possibly bring myself to eat any Kraft’s.

  2. Ooh! I’ll have to watch for this in the stores. I usually grab the blue box for a quick mid-week meal… I’d love to try the “grown up” version! 😀

  3. Oh yummy!!! I didn’t know about these. I’m going to have to stock up. We’re looking for other quick eats now that our kitchen is gutted. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Seriously yummy stuff! I love that the kids can make it themselves, it is so easy to prepare!

  5. My kids love these! 🙂

  6. The one you have pictured looks just like the Kraft Deluxe mac n cheese that doesn’t come with the cheese powder but a cheese pouch you let melt on the noodles. It also uses the full size macaroni unlike the kid version which comes with the scary powder mix I can never mix just right lol. Have you come across the Kraft Deluxe before? It’s also a blue box but wider rather than the tall rectangle kids box. One also comes in a four cheese and a sharp cheddar which I like as well as a velveeta version with shells which is just ok for me.
