REVIEW: Kraft Big Ass Easy Mac Cups

Kraft Easy Mac Large

Okay, so this bigger Kraft Easy Mac Cup isn’t called Big Ass Easy Mac Cup, but it should be since it’s exactly twice the weight of the original size and comparing their sizes would be like comparing Kardashian sister asses.

I reviewed the original size when it was first introduced, and while I liked it very much, one complaint I had about it was that I didn’t think it was very filling and wouldn’t be suitable for a meal. Well, either a lot of people felt the same way or the folks at Kraft read that review and — four years later — the power of this quasi-product review blog compelled them to up the size of their Easy Mac Cups.

Making a Big Ass Easy Mac Cup is extremely easy. On a food preparing scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the computer on the Jetsons that makes anything you tell it to and 1 being the entire process to make homemade bacon that includes everything from hunting the pig in a forest to curing the meat to frying it in a pan, the Big Ass Easy Mac Cup is a 7, which is like making a Cup Noodles.

All one has to do to prepare the Big Ass Easy Mac Cup is fill the container with water up to the fill line, microwave it for three and a half minutes, stir in the cheese sauce mix that eventually turns into a cheese sauce that makes Taco Bell’s cheese sauce look significantly edible, and then enjoy…or ponder the direction your life has taken that has forced you to eat a Big Ass Easy Mac Cup.

Kraft Easy Mac Large 3

The Big Ass Easy Mac Cup has the same level of cheesiness as the original Easy Mac Cup, which I surprisingly enjoyed when I reviewed it. However, while I think the smaller Easy Mac Cup isn’t very filling, its chubbier sibling might be too filling.

About three-fourths of the way through the Big Ass Easy Mac Cup, my mouth felt like I’d just given a 30 minute blowjob to a can on Kraft Easy Cheese. I got sick of its cheesiness and had a hard time finishing it off.

I guess the Big Ass Easy Mac Cup was too big for me.

Pros: Enjoyable cheesiness. Twice the size of regular Easy Mac Cups. Easy to make. The computer on the Jetsons that made their food.
Cons: Too much Easy Mac for me. Sucking on a Kraft Easy Cheese can. Cheese sauce mix makes Taco Bell’s cheese sauce look good. Great source of sodium. The influential power TIB doesn’t have.

  1. So many calories and carbs, but looking into that orange abyss, I want to dive in!

    I haven’t had Kraft macaroni and cheese for about a decade or so. :-p

  2. maybe you could take the big ass mac n’ cheese and add some hotdogs or sausage into the mix. Then you could divide into two portions and have two meals.

  3. Hmmm I can’t really get into somthing like this… (I really wish I could though) It looks like it has too many calories to be worth eating! Still there is somthing to be said for comfort food!

  4. I don’t care about calories, but that looks…not good. The noodles look undercooked or anemic compared to making regular Kraft mac and cheese. And I totally understand that overcheesed feeling. Blech.

  5. hope you don’t mind me stealing that food preparation difficulty scale. it’s brilliant.

  6. Doesn’t look too bad, I suppose it might do in a pinch if I didn’t have time to go downstairs and get a sandwich at work or something.

  7. I once put a container of this stuff (or technically, of the normal-sized version) in the microwave without water. The house nearly burnt down, and I will never be able to erase the smell of burnt Easy Mac from my memory – nor will I ever eat Easy Mac again.

    Back when I could stomach it, though, the regular-sized cup seemed like plenty. I even left some of the cheese out when making it because it was just too much after awhile. I can’t see a giant version of Easy Mac going over terribly well, other than for those out there who regularly eat mouthfuls of Cheez Whiz by itself.
