– “Easy Mac” –
I want to start by giving Kraft a round of applause in terms of product concept. Easy Mac cups are incredibly convenient. Not having to refrigerate a microwaveable dinner is pretty great, not to mention the fact that they are extremely portable. Speaking of convenience, the water-fill line is even pre-measured for you and ready to go. If you’re like me, you may remember the days of Easy Mac packets – a much bigger hassle. To round out the 5 star presentation rating, I also appreciate the fact that the cup itself has the label on it. This really elevates the aesthetic value, whilst serving as excellent branding.
Tried and true, never bland. I don’t know about you, but I am always amazed by the amount of flavor in Easy Mac for the caliber of meal that it is.
One of the greatest things about Easy Mac is something that sets it apart from other microwaveable dinners; you can tweak its creaminess to your own liking. If you put more (or less) water in before you nuke it, you can make it as creamy (or dry) as you please. With other microwaveable mac and cheeses, you don’t have the same type of control over the creaminess of the final product.
The same cheesy flavor we all know and love from the original, just 10x easier.
It may come as a surprise that I am giving this 5 stars. However, microwaveable/boxed macs are held to different standards than restaurant macs.
Easy Mac is incredible on the go and to buy in bulk. It tastes great every time and comes in countless variations to suit your fancy. All wonderful things that make it a staple in American lives. I mean, who doesn’t have Easy Mac somewhere in their pantry?
