I really don't like Kraft Dinner

Kraft Dinner, for those who don't know, is the only thing that Canadians eat. It is a putrid macaroni and cheese mix that you can do in the microwave or on a stove. Either way you do it, it's still an assault on your bowels. Only in times of extreme desperation (i.e. when your freezer is bare, i.e. right now) will Kraft Dinner - or KD as Canadians call it - ever be deemed an acceptable substitute for food.

They've tried to jazz KD up. Before, you just stuck the noodles in the microwave and added the revolting cheese mix once it was done. Now they've come out with all these new flavours that require additional preparation. I bought "Extra Creamy." They forced me to add margarine and milk and all sorts of other ungodly things. The recipe must have called for a shrunken head somewhere along the line. That's what it tastes like, at any rate.



As for that "Gotta Have KD" slogan? More like "Gotta Have A Bucket To Vomit Into When You Eat KD."









Am I still allowed to become a citizen of Canada?

Yes, because I don't like it either...

Especially that instant crap: Easy-Mac

Nasty stuff

Have you seen the commercial with the guys cooking it in a hot tub? Can you imagine the diseases they must get from that???

We have that in the US, and it's gross here, too, at least it was the last time I had it. I used to buy junk like that when I first moved out on my own. It didn't take me long to realize that cooking couldn't possibly be that hard to learn!

That orange powdery stuff is a color not found in nature!

Don't the slutty girls in the advert make a lame innuendo as well? "Nice noodles" or something?


Mmm, I just got to clean out the bowl I prepared the Kraft Dinner in. Filmy noodle residue mixed with bright orange cheese sauce clinging on to the bowl for dear life. Just think, that same stuff is clinging to the inside of my stomach.

I haven't had Kraft Dinner for ages, mostly because I can cook

I love it, but only in small doses. And I will not, under any circumstance, cook it in the microwave. Boiled to perfection. ...With ketchup on top.

The fact that you were making it completely incorrectly might have something to do with it.

Agreed.

I find it interesting to ask folks about their personal style of preparing kraft dinner... people get pretty defensive about it.

On a sidenote, the Kraft Macaroni n' Cheese that is sold in the States is vastly different from Kraft Dinner. There's no comparison.

I like Kraft Macaroni 'n Cheese spirals The spirals have more surface area for maximum cheese sauce adhesion. I like things super-salty, so I add in Lawry's salt, garlic powder, and some minced onion.

The microwaveable stuff has always sounded pretty nasty. I can't eat mac 'n cheese made w/ just water and not a little bit of milk and some margarine.
