Kraft Foods started boxing macaroni & cheese (affectionately know as “Kraft Dinner”) in 1937 during the tail end of the Great Depression. Considering this product could serve a family of four for just 19 cents, (and hey, they were on sale at the supermarket for 99 cents last week…that’s not exactly a huge price increase in 75 years) staples such as fresh meat and dairy were in short supply, rationing was in effect, and women needed to join the workforce: It’s no wonder Kraft sold 8 million boxes in the first year. Kraft had a low cost meal that was believed to provide a nutritious alternative to a meat dish. It was quick and easy, and it became a generational staple for kids and adults alike.
