Kraft Introduces Pumpkin Spice Mac and Cheese for a Limited Time
There are some places pumpkin spice just doesn't belong. Kraft begs to differ as they introduce a limited-edition Pumpkin Spice Mac & Cheese.
Let me begin by saying, although I have recently rekindled my love affair with the OG Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, I object to the pumpkin spice version. But, 'tis the season, and there's always range of unnecessary products jumping on the pumpkin-flavored bandwagon.
Now, the catch? Kraft's Pumpkin Spice Mac & Cheese is only available in CANADA, and there are only 1,000 boxes, according to CNN! So, that greatly limits our ability to taste test it even if we wanted to. Having said that, what's it all about? It's basically the same formula, noodles and cheese powder, but there's a pumpkin spice flavor packet included, as well as some cinnamon to sprinkle on top. Oh, and each kit reportedly comes with a coffee mug. How autumnal.
I sort of want to know if it's already popular in Canada to add flavors like pumpkin and cinnamon to something that's cheesy. I mean, Kraft (and it's parent company Heinz) must know something about that if they're only making it available there.
Just conjuring up what Pumpkin Spice Mac & Cheese would taste like turns my stomach. It's just not...right. How about you? If you could buy it here in the U.S., would you? Let me know in the comment box below.
