Kraft has introduced a new candy-flavored mac and cheese just in time for Valentine's Day. The limited-edition noodles have the same cheesy flavor as the original, but with an extra candy packet that turns the mac and cheese a bright pink color and adds a dusting of sweetness. But the color doesn't come from crushed up candies. The vibrant pink hue is actually derived from beetroot and carrot concentrates. As for what makes it tastes like candy, the extra packet of powder contains fructose, natural flavors and vanilla extract. Kraft announced the Candy Mac on their Instagram page, and reaction was mixed. But the interesting combination won't be available in stores. Only 1,000 lucky people will score their own box of candy mac and cheese to share with their lovebird. To enter for a chance to win a box, go to CandyKraftMacandCheese.com. Winners will receive their prize just in time for Valentine's Day.
