Late Night Oppo - Choose Your Fighter
You’re faced with the horns of a dilemma: you’re hungry and craving something cheesy, but you don’t have any actual real cheese to grate in the fridge. In fighting your mortal enemy, hunger, you are presented with this unruly field of potential allies:
From this ragtag crew, who do you recruit to help you do battle against that gurgle and growl growing ever gnarlier in your gut?
Choose wisely. Cheese wisely.

Kraft Mac and cheese original - no question!
Now my wife makes a killer Mac and cheese with venison that’s the best you ever tasted. If it’s not that, kraft original in the box.

Annie's Spirals and Parmesan. That shit is way better than it has any right to be.
@jminer that sounds delicious. I’ve made ground beef macs and bacon macs before (all homestyle) but venison is a new one.

@way2blu Annie's is ridiculously good across the board for (box) M&C!

@way2blu No Velveeta shells and cheese? No way, buddy.
Tangentially related side note, I got home last night, and didn't feel like going back out to pick up some dinner. So I scavenged my fridge and pantry, looking for something relatively quick and easy to throw together for myself, since my partner had already had dinner.
I wound up making tater tots, then covering them with Velveeta shells and cheese with bacon mixed in. No doubt, I lost at minimum one hour off my life span. But it was so worth it.
@smugaardvark Food combos like that are the best. I made a mac n’ cheese + beef + salsa burrito once and it was just as awesome and awful as it sounds.

When it comes to mac & cheese, I prefer the cheapest store brand crap. If I have to pick one of the above though, I'll take the Kraft original.

Small tip : You can keep quality (grated or not) cheese on the fridge for months if it's cold enough and stored properly (don't let humidity go in the bag once opened) and you can also freeze cheese (i don't do that but i know peoples who do it) so you don't have to go to the store too often.
I have pre grated Comté and Parmigiano that i bought about than 2 months ago and they are still good.
Then you can do a 2 minutes rice and cheese with pre cooked rice that only need 1m30 at the microwave :

@way2blu I'd eat the Annie's white cheddar first, just to get rid of the awkwardly-shaped packaging. Boxes FTW!

@way2blu Pass. I don't like pasta. No mac & cheese for me.

Annie's White Cheddar is the best boxed mac I've ever tasted, and it's not even close. Never had the one in a cup, but that's my choice anyway.

Dunno why, it may even be psychosomatic, but I prefer the taste of the spirals to the regular kind.
@way2blu I've got to go with the original Kraft dinner, I've tried their other deluxe versions and whatnot, just don't like them as much.

Kraft is great because it's cheap, but Annie's white cheddar (or any Annie's product) is great because it's friggin delicious. They've got my vote.
@skyfire77 My kids swear by this too. Spirals over the regulars. Earlier in the pandemic by middle rediscovered the frozen (movie) shaped mac and cheese. She refused all other mac and cheeses for a long time. Crazy....but I guess they really do taste different.

- Kraft Deluxe by a landslide
- Annies Spirals
- Kraft Thick n' Creamy (also a former high school nickname)
- Regular Kraft
- Annies White Cheddar (seems to be the cheap 'Easy Mac' style, and those have never been good)
Whichever one you choose, drench it in Cholula.

Give me Kraft classic original and some frozen fish sticks. Old School Redneck meal and I love it.
Kraft Deluxe for a quickie meal.
Homemade for the Sunday dinners.
