It's the Cheesiest!

I am a generic-brand buyer.
I have been since the first time Trevor and I went shopping together as a married couple and he wouldn't let me buy Campbell's soup. I was shocked. I didn't even realize there were other brands than the "name" brands.
Every time I go to the store and take Stephen with me, we inevitably go down the pasta aisle. Every time as I go down to pick up my "Hy-Top Mac n' Cheese" (or Great Value) I hear
"Mom, can we get The Cheesiest?" And most times I say no.
And always I hear "Why not?" (with a bit of a whiny voice)
So today at the store I asked myself "why not?". Generic is really only .20 cents cheaper. Seriously. What else will I do with that twenty cents? So today I got him the best Macaroni and Cheese ever made.
I scooped him and Joshua up double scoops.... and proceeded to eat the rest myself.
Because, really, it is soooo much better!

Might I warn you to STAY AWAY FAR FAR FAR AWAY from the Kroger brand...it is so gross! We were trying to save a few bucks and ended up getting a mac and cheese that we took about 3 bites and threw the rest away.

My absolute favorite is the thick and creamy great value brand. It's the only kind of mac n' cheese I'll eat...sometimes name brands are totally worth the extra money!
