People I know who frequent Chick Fil-a have been raving about the fact they added Mac & Cheese to the menu. I’m aware this has been a thing for months now, but I had yet to try it out. Naturally, me being me, I decided to see if it lived up to the hype.
It ain’t your momma/nana’s Mac & Cheese.
Now that isn’t to say that it isn’t good. It’s definitely a huge step up from the craft Mac & Cheese instant packets that us millennials stuffed our dorms and apartments with. It definitely comes somewhat close to homemade, but it ain’t going to rock your socks off like your mama/nana’s Mac & Cheese.
Now, how you feel about this will depend on your prior experiences with Mac & Cheese. I ain’t bashing Chick Fil a’s Mac & Cheese, but y’all gotta understand that my momma made the kind of Mac & Cheese that healed broken hearts and was the instant cure to a bad day. You could have a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, and my mother’s Mac & Cheese would give you a 10 minute hug. That shit gave you a big ol’ pat on the back and reminded you that you’re doing your very best.
Chick Fil a’s Mac and cheese is good if you need a simple yet solid Mac & Cheese fix. If however you go into this expecting your momma/nana’s Mac & Cheese, you will be very disappointed. This ain’t the Mac & Cheese your momma/nana spends hours boiling, spreading cheeses, seasonings, breading, sometimes ham or other meat chunks, followed by a long bake in the oven until it’s crispy on the outside, juicy down under; this is simple Mac & Cheese that is still many steps up from the broke millennial packs you probably still have in your apartment.
Overall, it’s good Mac & Cheese that doesn’t try way too hard. It’s simple, yet solid. Just don’t expect to feel like you’re at your momma’s house.
