There are very few situations that could make the internet turn against mac & cheese. So few, in fact, that I can't think of a single one that's not the one we're here to discuss today: mac & cheese from a can. To be specific, your favorite ketchup crafters over at Heinz have seemingly stuck macaroni & cheese into a tin can and decided to sell it online.
There's really not much we know about the product so far, but per the Amazon description provided by Heinz, here's what it is: "A simple touch or two can make Heinz Macaroni Cheese even tastier. Heinz Macaroni Cheese. Made with a creamy cheese sauce."
...Nope! There are no typos there or anything missing on my end. That's just really how it's described by the company.
Anyway, if that comprehensive description didn't do it for you, maybe the two one-star reviews left by unhappy customers recently will. You can disregard the first comment ("14 bucks for 1 can? Hahahahahahah!!!!!") as the price has come down from whenever that person bought it, but the second one may be a bit more telling. "So delicious best quality just kiding its trash," Debra Phillips explains. Again! Not a typo. Just a customer seemingly overwhelmed with her own sick burn and emotions!
You know what, though? Debra can go off all she wants, but Heinz hasn't let me down with its latest innovations (namely MAYOCHUP, obv). So give me mac & cheese in a can! Give me anything else you can possibly fathom, you evil geniuses!!! Give me it all so I can slather canned pasta in combined condiments and die happy.
