If you buy mac n cheese, do you use regular or novelty kids' shapes (related to fiat's dye question)?

Kraft has agreed to remove artificial yellow...


Except, they aren't removing it from the regular boxed mac n cheese, only from the cartoon shaped ones they'll be selling next year.  We tried the Spiderman stuff once when it was on sale a few years ago, nobody liked it, and it didn't taste anything like I remember the regular elbow mac box.  If I was going to buy it again, it would be the regular, except, yellow.

  • I buy myself a box every now and then because I love it. My kids won't touch the stuff they want it home made. I find that the shapes are too noodley? All you test is the noodle and not enough of the cheese flavored sauce.

  • The kids like the shaped kind, but hubby & I do not. We eat the regular kind, or I'll get Velvetta if it's on sale or if I have a coupon for it. I just watched Dr. Oz & he so kindly pointed out all the fruits & veggies that we like the most, that are loaded with pesticides. You just can't win! :/

  • I buy it very rarely, usually when I'm the one who is hungry for it! My own mac n cheese is so easy it seems silly to buy a box.

  • I buy it so infrequently and it's usually the regular kind. I can never cook the shapes right.

    Answer by Izsarejman at 5:59 PM on Nov. 5, 2013

  • If I buy it, we usually buy the shapes. But nobody in my house really likes boxed mac.
