A friend of mine, who is an imported food distributor, warned me a couple of days ago that the imported food chain of supply is drying up and if I had any beloved imported food items I should pick up some extra until the chain of supply is stable again or until this virus quarantine is over. I am passing that warning along to you.

Kraft is imported. How do you like Maruchen cup of noodles? And Delores tuna?

On that diet, you might want to add a goodly supply of laxatives!

There is actually Kraft Mac n Cheese available locally, Mexican version. Which is good, because the copycat mac n cheeses are just awful. I will add, however, that no one seems to have it at the moment (WM/Soriana/SL)

I made my own. Cooked the elbow macaroni and drained it. Made a cheese sauce and mixed the two together (in the pot with the cheese sauce). If you used a strongly flavoured cheese and add a little diced onion, it packs more punch. Top with steamed broccoli... or add cumin... or?

I get a mac cheese powder from Web for emergencies, and use elbow noodles. Or whatever noodles I might have. I've tried a variety of recipes for fancy cheeses but I guess I prefer what I grew up on. So you won't see me ordering overpiced designer mac'n'cheese at restaurants.

I LOVE Kraft mac 'n cheese. Love the flavour and the ease but they've added something to it that I'm reacting too and I'd rather be able to breathe than indulge my cravings.

I'm an habitual label reader, which sometimes requirs a magnifying glass.
The ingredients in many popular foods are real turn offs.

I would say in all prepared food the ingredients are a turn off--

Yep just about everything will kill ya now a days. I don't worry too much about it. The sun kills ya, the smog kills ya, the CV19 kills ya........etc. I try to just use moderation.

It all depends what you are used to eatng.. If people like it more power to them. SOme of the best crakers in France are very scary when you read the labels but they are really tasty.. so it is a choice.

It appears some will acquire some culinary skills out of this, like making mac and cheese. Some may learn beans.

Are you saying Kraft has no production in Mexico?  Interesting.

Far as I know Kraft does have Mexican production. But I don't really know as I never eat processed foods and don't keep up with them. Processed "foods" are toxic.

Food supplies and other essential cargo are not stopped at the border so I don't understand why Superlake can't get product unless their broker NOB is shut down due to quarantine.

The only Kraft product I buy is their grated Parmesan cheese, which is very good, Is that considered processed and toxic? Doesn´t seem to  be mixed with anything else.  I know they have a huge line of foods as they part of a huge conglomerate of food producers.
I guess you don´t approve of their pasta products?

By definition all cheese is processed from milk.

Some processed foods are worse than others. Read ingredients.

BTW, Kraft grated Parm in the jar thingy is cut with cellulose particles. You can Google it. I eat vegan Parm, it's quite good.

SL gets more of their imported products from the Abastos in Guad. Check the stick-on labels to see which outfit in the Abastos did the importing.
