An elitist, latte-drinking, mac&cheese-eating blog post.

Shortpacked!: The results are in.

Every election year at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, attendees are given a little bag of goodies. For the past several years, one of these free goodies was a box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, custom-tailored to each party.

I had to get some.

So, woo, searched around eBay, and found myself some "Democrats in 2008!" Macaroni and Cheese. I really wanted the Republican box, because for some reason I feel that Republican Macaroni and Cheese would be funnier. I dunno why. But there was no Republican M&C on eBay for me to get, so whatcha gonna do. (There were also unopened boxes of them from previous election years. Ew?)

The presentation itself is suitably hilarious. The Democrat-themed box is full of donkey and star shapes, though I suspect there's a secret Muslim shape in there. On the back of the box is a quick history of the Democratic Party, from Thomas Jefferson through Bill Clinton. Below that is a "Presidential IQ Test" that substitutes the words "KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese" into famous quotes by Democratic Presidents. Your job is to match the original quote to the President who said it. Example: "And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese can do for you -- ask what you can do for KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese." I, for one, welcome our KRAFT overlords.

I open all of my toys, even the expensive ones, so you betcha I opened my limited edition Democratic Party Macaroni & Cheese. I boiled the hell out of some water, cooked the little mofos, and doused them in powdered cheese food product. (By the way, I used the "Classic Prep," with the extra margarine and the extra calories.)

In short, they're delicious! KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese is the cheesiest, but I have my worries. For example, it sat on the shelf for the longest time right next to my Bill Ayers Instant Rice. What's with that? And frankly, this stuff is mostly empty calories, without any real substance. I just don't think this box was ready.
