Kraft® Candy Mac & Cheese
Pink candy-flavored macaroni and cheese might sound like a preschooler’s dream come true, but grownup fans of the brand can now enjoy it themselves for a sweet-and-savory Valentine’s Day at home. According to the company, “Candy Kraft® Mac & Cheese is made with the same cheesy Kraft® Mac & Cheese Americans know and love, but includes a candy flavor packet to turn the mac & cheese pink and add hints of sweet candy flavor.”
