Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Debuts New Packaging

Kraft's Macaroni and Cheese Has a New Look

The iconic blue box of macaroni and cheese has got a new look. Kraft Foods and design firm Landor Associates have revealed an updated package for the wildly popular Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. The box is still blue, but it has a noodle smile that will become an extension of the brand's new multimillion-dollar advertising campaign.

For well-known food products like Kraft's Mac and Cheese, a redesigned box can be a risky move. In 2009, Tropicana attempted to change its orange juice cartons but ditched the new logo due to customer backlash. However, I think the new look is fun and modern and have a feeling it will be a success. How do you feel about it?

I have been eating Kraft Mac n cheese since I was 5 - at least once a week. I'm now 42. The recipe changed. Not just a little. It's gross. I haven't had it for months and won't eat that stuff anymore. The label says that the recipe hasn't changed - a big lie. Noodles are different (different shape, different size, different cooking time, different consistency), cheese is different (gooey, no need for butter or it gets real disgusting). I don't care about the new logo, I care about what's inside. And if you do change the recipe, at least don't lie about it. After 37 years, I'm out. So are my kids. Healthier anyway.

Well, I don't give a flip about the packaging. Packaging changes on products all the time, but they messed with the quality of the product. First what I noticed is they changed the noodles. Okay, I can handle a differently shaped noodle, but it doesn't even taste the same. Now, let's talk about the cheese. In a word.....NASTY. I am so sad that they changed my beloved mac and cheese. But why? What they had was perfect, and I still crave it, but I refuse to buy the crap that's in the box now. So disappointed!

I just wanted to add the noodles are different, and the taste is different so yes it has been changed not just the packaging. I don't care if the package has a lip licking picture on it. It is nasty, and I recommend you don't eat it. The only reason I bought it was I couldn't find the other kind well I'm not buying it anymore.

I made it today, and it is gross. I couldn't even finish my plate, and my kids didn't eat much of it either. Big waste of money. Why did they have to change it? It was a whole lot better before. I'm sick of health food weirdos ruining good food. If it is going to be like this I'm never buying macaroni and cheese again.

I like it! I think the old design was nice, but it is out dated.

This look has been in my grocery store for awhile now...I dont really like it. Although the smiley face is cute is has a too similar feel to the generic brands and I miss the old design. Now if they go and redesign the sponge bob square pants box ill be pissed!

I was looking for mac&cheese at the grocery store and I was so confused! I thought maybe they were out of the regular kind. I had to really examine it to figure it out. The noodle-as-smile thing is kinda cute, but I don't really think the old box needed updating.
