I bought my first box of Easy Mac a few weeks ago. I felt so dirty standing in the checkout line holding it, trying to be inconspicuous. It was just screaming "Hi! Making regular mac and cheese requires more effort than I am willing to expend. I must resort to Easy Mac. I am the laziest human being in existence."

Nonetheless, I brought it home and tried it out. Is it easy? Sure, just add water and microwave it. But does it compare to regular mac and cheese? I think not. If you follow the directions, it's always too runny. By the time I'd figured out the perfect amount of water to add, I could have finished making regular mac and cheese. I probably deserved that though, just for buying it in the first place.
