Kraft Boxed Mac 'n' Cheese


[Original 1937 Kraft Dinner package]

It was introduced in 1937 โ€” 84 years ago โ€” following the Great Depression and at 19 cents for a serving for 4, was an instant hit, selling over 8 million in its first year.

It has been a staple of American dinner since then.

FunFacts: It's still called Kraft Dinner (KD) in Canada, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in the U.S. and Australia, and Cheesey Pasta in the U.K.
