Kraft Mac and Cheese ice cream is the combination of two iconic comfort foods in a way that no one would have predicted but will be craving a spoonful of this food mash-up. Before someone scoffs at the idea, it is best to try a taste because it is unforgettable.

Food mash-ups have taken on many approaches. From people playing with food to combinations that people just think will work, the concept usually blends two favorite foods into one. After all, if people love their favorite food, wouldn’t they love combining those two favorite foods in a single bite?

While that simple concept makes sense, it may not work in all situations. No one really wants hot dog flavored cookies or pizza flavored coffee. There needs to be some type of connection between the two foods. With Kraft Mac and Cheese ice cream, it really does work.

According to Emily Violett Sr. Associate Brand Manager for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, said, “We know that there is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than ice cream. That is why we wanted to combine two of the most iconic comfort foods to create an ice cream with the unforgettable flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese we all grew up with,”

Where can you actually buy Kraft Mac and Cheese ice cream?

If this special food mash-up ice cream has made your stomach grumble in anticipation, you’re not alone. It isn’t just the Kraft Mac and Cheese aspect. This ice cream is made in partnership with the always delicious Van Leeuwen Ice Cream.

For those unfamiliar, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream started as an ice cream truck in Brooklyn and has become an ice cream legend. Focusing on the simple idea “to make good ice cream that makes you feel good,” the ice cream brand has had many people adopt their mantra of “happiness is healthiness.” With simple ingredients, the ice cream brand is all about making and enjoying the best possible ice cream one scoop at a time.

As Violett said, “As big fans of Van Leeuwen, we knew they’d be the perfect partner to create this ice cream with us. Not only does it taste delicious, but it’s also made with high quality ingredients and contains no artificial flavors, preservatives, or dyes just like our Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.”

For the Kraft Mac and Cheese ice cream, the idea builds on a simple concept. Ice cream makes people smile, mac and cheese makes people smile, and the combination should bring even bigger smiles, right?

And, the answer is yes, really big yes. Before people start criticizing this concept, they need to take a taste. The rich, creamy French style ice cream is a good choice for this flavor combination. While the look has that bold color, the ice cream is nuanced. Just the right amount of tanginess.

Thinking about this ice cream, it would be really great with some crushed crackers on top. That little touch of saltiness would make it taste even better.

If you would like to try the Kraft Mac and Cheese Ice cream from Van Leeuwen Ice cream, it will be available starting on July 14 at 11 a.m. ET. The limited edition offering is available while supplies last at Van Leeuwen stores across the country. Also, the brand’s ice cream truck will be at Union Square from 11 a.m. till 6 p.m. on July 14.
