For many macaroni and cheese is one of the ultimate comfort foods. Not only is cheesy pasta delicious, but it is super affordable and easy to make too. But for those of you who want to skip waiting for the water to boil, cooking the pasta, and adding the cheese sauce and other ingredients you are in luck as you can now buy macaroni and cheese in a can on Amazon Canada!
The macaroni and cheese cans are produced by Heinz, the company famous for making ketchup and a variety of other sauces. The cans of cheesy pasta have been for sale in the United Kingdom for years, but now you can get your hands on a can of macaroni and cheese right here in Canada. One can is currently $3.05 (plus shipping).
It is hard to imagine that the canned macaroni and cheese will taste as good as the box variety (or better still homemade), but it is an easy dish to prepare. To make a can of Heinz macaroni and cheese you simply empty the package into a bowl and microwave, no mixing in powdered cheese required.
You may not want to replace your regular box of macaroni and cheese with the can variety, as it does cost more. Though one of the reviewers on Amazon Canada did point out it is perfect for when you go camping.
Photos of the Heinz macaroni and cheese has a pale colour, and the sauce looks very runny. The reviews on Amazon Canada are very mixed. One reviewer rated it 5 out of 5 saying, "it's the best Mac and cheese in a can". While another review gave it 1 out of 5 describing the pasta as, "so delicious best quality just kidding (sick) its trash".
