Dear Velveeta

To whom it may concern,

Growing up I only knew one kind of Macaroni and Cheese, and it was Kraft. We rarely used it as a side dish, but instead added hamburger meat, corn, & green beans to make it into a meal. I thought I was getting the good stuff until later in life I tasted the sweet nectar that is Velveeta Shells & Cheese. You became a staple in my home for many years, until my hubby and I decided we needed to shed some weight and filed for a restraining order.

Recently, we once again invited you back, but this time we went for the "healthier" option. And let me say...it just plain sucks! It's like you didn't even try! Also, there is only a 30 calorie difference per serving, and when a serving is over 300 calories is it really worth having the 2% variety?

So, I once again ban you from my house because, let's face it, my butt isn't getting any smaller and your low cal food isn't getting any better!

I never even knew baked mac and cheese excited until I was college. We grew up on this stuff too.

Some things just do NOT translate in a low cal/diet friendly version!

That was the most priceless thing I have ever read...and my sentiments exactly on Mac and Cheese. We also ate chef boy r dee pizza (make your own style).

Just the thought of it is making me dry vomit.

I mix all kinds of things into my mac n' cheese so I haven't had the stuff straight from the box in ages. But your kids will love it in a few years.

I am not a fan of velveeta. However, any time I see Kraft's 3-cheese-with-shells variety, I practically fill my cart. Food storage, y'know.
