Let us discuss the glory and prestige that is macaroni and cheese.
Now, we have all eaten "real Mac and cheese" with you know, cheese made from real milk and stuff. And that's all fine and dandy but then we have also all eaten KD.
The wonderous invention made for lazy people like me who know how to appreciate a solid product.
I should I suppose preface this by saying that I have once fallen into a deep pit of addiction to kraft dinner and it may be partially to blame of my previous weight gains, however in no way do I fault the product itself but of my lack of will power.
I have heard a rumour that kraft was planning on changing their mystical cheese powder for something "healthier". Now, I cannot remember where I heard this and am too lazy to google it, but the thought of this offends me to my core.
Everything on this planet is slowly switching over to healthy versions of whatever it was. I mean, people now voluntarily eat Kale Chips instead of potato chips. I don't care if they aren't meant to be the same thing, don't call it a chip if it isn't either potato or chocolate.
As someone who struggles with their weight I understand the theory. Make everything healthy so that you have no choice but to eat better. Problem with this in my mind is that I know lots of people who eat healthy and are still over weight. Also, I know lots of people who eat unhealthy and are still considered in shape.
I mean if they don't want to make KD anymore thats one thing. Fine we will all get over the immense loss to our lives. But don't bother slapping a new powdered cheese and calling it healthy. That is a waste of your time and mine.
No one is buying KD as a healthy alternative. No one will ever do that. KD is what college kids eat because money is tight and sometimes you have to splurge for a hot meal. KD is what sad twenty somethings eat when they can't cook but need comfort food. KD is what someone eats when they are super hungover and need something that will sit in their gut all day to protect from the rotting feeling. KD will never be someone's healthy alternative.
This will likely be my most political stance on anything.
