Lol I live in Canada and we call this Kraft dinner but in the USA you guys call it maccaroni and cheese by Kraft lol I do t understand why they did this.

Someone pointed out the American one is a spoon and the Canadian one is a fork. If you are from the USA do you use a spoon? And if you are Canadian do you use a fork? I'm Canadian and use a fork.

I don't know why but the American one doesn't look appetizing to me but maybe its because I'm used to the Canadian one.

I didn't know until I asked my friend (American) why she didn't call them Kraft dinner. Also they don't have smarties like us. Their smarties are what we call rockets.

Some brands in the US vary in name by region as well, from fast food to restaurants, grocery stores, and food items.

Ring dings and ding dongs
Hardee's and carls Jr
Ralps and Kroger
Ryan's and home town buffets.

I've lived in California, Hawaii, Virginia, New York, Alabama. Its interesting really.

Do Canadians really eat it with a fork?
