An American product sold in the US as Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and in Canada as Kraft dinner - same product, different names. Very instructive to see some Canadians here not only claim their mac/cheese is better, but somehow that it makes Canada unique! Hilarious.

There not the same, it's a different recipe. If you ever had both, you'll notice right away that the Canadian version is darker in colour and has a more "cheesier" ( I use that term loosely) taste.

Both are equally disguising though.

You need to work on your dictionary.

Unique: limited in occurrence to a given class, situation, or area.

Unique | Define Unique at Dictionary.com

If you can only get it there, by very definition, it's unique. Second, if you've never had it, you have zero frame of reference to criticize beloved Student Chow.

J.L. Kraft was a Canadian by the way. (you know we never pass an opportunity to mention our own.)

It is different. MANY things that cross the border are different.


Try our Mountain Dew, and then try that liquid sugar named Mountain Dew on your side.

Here you are Mr. Condescending -

"Although the product was originally called Kraft Dinner in Canada and the United States, the name is now foreign to most Americans, where the product is now simply called Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. In Canada, however, the product is still known as Kraft Dinner (or KD).

We reached out to Kraft Foods directly for an explanation. The best answer we could get attributes the change to a packaging redesign in 1958, which inserted the phrase “Macaroni and Cheese” between “Kraft” and “Dinner.

Despite the name difference, Kraft Dinner and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese are essentially the same product."


The Canadian referred to earlier in this thread who pined for Kraft Dinner while living in the US could simply buy Kraft Macaroni and Cheese because they are the same product, i.e Kraft Dinner is not unique (having no like or equal - from your link Mr Condescending) to Canada.

True. Coke is also better in Canada and Europe than it is in the USA. But not everyone can taste the difference.

Kit Kat is also a good example of this. It is manufactured by different companies and it has a completely different taste in Canada.

Now let's talk about flour.

Friends from the U.S. would often ask us to load up our RV with Robin Hood All Purpose flour for them because they stated the Canadian variant made better bread. Their's doesn't rise the same, or some such anomoly, that had us trucking down bags of the stuff in our storage bays for them.

Anybody ever hear of this one?

well, Canadians think by putting some cheese on fries they actually create a new kind of food and give it a new name.

Or substituting some ingredient in a burger creates new food. For crying out loud, it is still a burger.

pathetic.

Yep. Absolutely true. Experiencing it this week. My Mom is in town from Calgary and can't get her recipes to turn out the same.

Just because it's essentially the same product doesn't mean that it tastes or comes out the same.

See Budweiser in Canada v. Bud in the US, or for that matter the same Bud from the different breweries across the US.
