FiberGourmet Light Macaroni & Cheese Dinner

Mac Daddy!

Let's face it. We ALL have a soft spot for pasta smothered in gooey cheese

sauce. The good news is that we no longer have to fight the urge to swallow

the bad stuff when those cravings kick in. There's a new blue box in town,

folks! Next time you NEED mac & cheese, grab a box of FiberGourmet Light

Macaroni & Cheese Dinner. It's amazingly AWESOME in the stats

department -- a (prepared) serving of this stuff has 18g fiber (WOW!) and

just 180 calories and 2.5g fat. Plus, it is SO good and satisfying, we doubt

you'll miss that other kind. All you have to do is boil the noodles, add the

sauce packet and a bit of 2% milk and, voila, it's a for-REAL cheesetastic

meal! And it's super-creamy without any added butter. No artificial flavors or

colors in this stuff either, kids -- so it won't turn your dinner that radioactive

shade of orange you're used to seeing (why would you want it to?). Retire

that old-school mac 'n goop for some new, fast, easy and fiber-packed mac!

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner

Sad and Blue

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. It's the stuff most of us grew up on and think of as

the standard in mac 'n cheese. But now that you've grown up a little (we

hope), you no longer think 2 Twinkies and a Cherry Coke would make the

best breakfast ever (and even if you do, you know better!). Same goes for

this silly macaroni. What's the point of eating pasta with super-fattening

cheese sauce made with butter? You really don't get much out of the basic

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese except lotsa carbs, calories, and fat. Heck, before

you mix anything in to make the sauce, you're already at 260 calories a

serving. By the time you're done, you're up to over 400 calories and nearly

20g fat! AAAAACK! Not to mention a pathetic 1g fiber. We're using our good

sense AND our sense of good taste to steer us in a new direction. We'll miss

you, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, but we're moving on...
