So we all know how much I love eating Mac and Cheese, especially with a spoon like a civilized human being.
This week, although involving Mac and Cheese, is way different. We’re talking macaroni and cheese bites.
For those of you that don’t know what they are, let me enlighten you. Essentially it’s a cluster of Mac and Cheese coated in flour, dipped in egg, rolled around in breadcrumbs and then fried in oil.
Mac and Cheese bites are something that is fairly new to me and I think they are fairly new in general. I was first introduced when I came to Sacred Heart, never hearing of them before.
Like most things in Connecticut I was bombarded with overly hyped accounts of people enjoying their Mac and Cheese bites.
So I took everyone’s advice and decided to eat some Mac and Cheese bites. I obviously went to Merritt Canteen. I really wouldn’t even know where else to get Mac and Cheese bites for that matter.
If you ever go to an event around school, they sometimes serve Mac and Cheese bites, or at least they serve a soggy piece of rubber that they like to call Mac and Cheese bites.
Well anyways, I walk into Merritt Canteen, say hello to the cashier and I get an order of Mac and Cheese bites. Along with a chili cheese dog…and a hot dog…and an order of fries…and a large root beer with no ice.
But by the way if you let places put ice in your soda then you’re the recipient of the biggest scam on earth.
Honestly, they put so much ice in your cup and the soda is cold anyway.
Sorry I keep going on these tangents, but I’ve been extra aggravated this week. I swear not to digress anymore.
Now back to the Mac and Cheese bites. I finally took a bite of one and I burnt my entire mouth so I had to let it air out for a while.
After taking a few gulps from the oodles of root beer I had, my mouth finally cooled down and I was able to go in for another bite and hopeful taste what everyone had been raving about.
I took a bite and this aura came over me. I felt enlightenment, deliverance, and a sense of calmness all at the same time.
As I chewed the Mac and Cheese bite I gained a certain knowledge. My mind was open to a new way of thinking.
I was thinking that Mac and Cheese bites are possibly the most overrated thing in the entire world.
I mean what is the big deal. It’s breaded Mac and Cheese that is a formula to burning your entire mouth.
Why wouldn’t you just eat regular Mac and Cheese? It’s way more delicious, easier to make and cheaper.
Literally when there was a shortage of Mac and Cheese bites I was the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life.
Plus, of all the things that the Merritt Canteen has to offer, you get Mac and Cheese bites?
If you do, then do yourself a favor and rethink your decisions and maybe get an order of their wings because they are bomb.

So earlier in the semester Anthony and I discussed the topic about what utensil would be easier to eat Mac and Cheese with, a fork or a spoon.
Now this week we will debate another form of the delicious food, Mac and Cheese bites.
Now I know what you’re thinking, there are so many fried treats to choose from. What I would normally consider carnival food is now being served in various different places such as the Merritt Canteen right by campus.
Menu’s at certain on-the-go food places offer different fried food such as fried Oreos which, if you ask me, are way too sweet. Fried pickles are a combination of sour, sweet and fried. There is funnel cake, which in my opinion is pure sugar. But Mac and Cheese bites stand out amongst the rest as the best possible choice of fried deliciousness.
I mean, Mac and Cheese bites are basically just a modified version of a favorite childhood food in bite size form.
What’s not to like?
When you’re on the go or in a rush this is a perfect treat for you.
These treats can usually be held without having to use a utensil which is more useful than you would think.
Since they are bite sized you can just pop one whole one into your mouth without judgment from others.
If you’re craving a delicious treat, you want Mac and Cheese, or you are on the go, Mac and Cheese bites will satisfy you on those times when you just need that extra cheesy good flavor.
Let’s say you’re doing something adventurous and you’re just craving something mouth-watering and satisfying.
Well, Mac and Cheese bites are a great option.
If you’re at a carnival with your friend or in a big city ready to go sightseeing, Mac and Cheese bites will most likely be somewhere nearby. So many restaurants have been adding these little treats to their menu because they’ve gotten so popular.
Also, who does not like fried food every once in a while?
Now I know it’s typically not good for you. If you’re on a health diet I can understand your struggle of trying to resist eating unhealthy, delicious treats but when it’s right in front of you, it’s hard not to be persuaded into just a tiny bite of that treat.
Mac and Cheese bites are just so good. They combine tasty flavors of cheesy delight and a fried food explosion in your mouth. It’s a mouth-watering sensation that is able to satisfy you throughout the entire day, maybe even the entire week.
Just think, to all of you who are on a health diet, if you take a couple of bites of that Mac and Cheese taste you’ll be satisfied enough that you might not even be craving another treat that will derail your diet until the following week.
If you like Mac and Cheese bites that’s great. If you don’t I hope you try it at least once. Who knows, you might actually find yourself enjoying it.
