Kraft Mac&Cheese Variety Explosion

DonShirer | Jan 15, 201508:42 AM

I just noticed that our local grocery started carrying more varieties of Kraft Mac&Cheese Dinners than they used to. I checked the Kraft website and found a dizzying 16 regular dinner varieties, 9 "Bowls", 10 Microwavable varieties, and 7 "Deluxe" dinners. Most of these were new to me, but probably not to most of you.

I won't trouble you with a complete listing, but the regular dinner varieties are:
Original (a.k.a. The Cheesiest), Buffalo Cheddar, Southwest Chipotle,
Garlic & Herb Alfredo, Three Cheese Jalapeño, Spirals, Cheddar Explosion,
Thick ‘nl Creamy, Three Cheese, White Cheddar, Dragon 2 Shapes, SpongeBob Shapes, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shapes, with 50% Whole Grain, Organic Cheddar, and Organic White Cheddar. Whew!

Now while I usually make my own Mac&Cheese, I do keep a Kraft Dinner box on the pantry shelf for occasions when when I'm out of suitable cheese or pasta (translation: or too lazy to fix my own). I tried the Buffalo Chicken and found it was spicier than the original and used thicker macaroni. It would take me forever to try all of their varieties (even if I skipped the comic shapes) so I wondered if anyone had tried the others and found them better or worse than "the original".
