When Seen: May 2021
In a Bite: Untasted. Have you tried it? Email us and tell us what you thought.
In a Haiku: Pure Southern comfort. Oozing with cheese, not whiskey. Best served warm, not nuked.
Origin Story: This quintessential American comfort food is not commonly found in the homes and restaurants of Thailand, and when it is, it is more likely to come from a box and powdered cheese packet. In some ways then, this version of mac & cheese is perhaps more recognizable to Thai palates than the richer, creamier version you might find in a Southern kitchen in the US. While we’re told that one of the members of the Flavor Department wanted to class it up with a hint of truffle oil, they were ultimately overruled by the fact that they would have to double the price of this flavor just to break even.
