The one thing 2020 couldn’t destroy, stop, or slow down was pumpkin spice season. The yearly taste explosion is officially here and the Kraft company wants to capitalize on America’s obsession with all things pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
After a successful test run in Canada, Kraft announced Thursday the new Pumpkin Spice Macaroni & Cheese will be available to people in the United States.
In a news release, Kraft said “Pumpkin Spice Macaroni & Cheese is the same cheesy mac and cheese Americans know and love, now with added fall flavors, featuring hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger.”
So how does a person score the weirdest pumpkin spiced product of 2020?
Americans can enter for a chance to get the limited-edition Kraft Pumpkin Spice Macaroni & Cheese using #PumpkinSpiceKMC #Sweepstakes and tagging @KraftMacNCheese on Twitter for a chance to win one of 1,000 limited edition Pumpkin Spice Kraft Mac and Cheese products. The entry period is from Friday, Sept. 25 through Tuesday, Sept. 29.
Our @KraftDinner friends in Canada had the idea to make pumpkin spice Kraft Mac and Cheese – and now we want to bring it to the US! Who’d give it a try?! 🎃🧀

Kraft’s Pumpkin Spice Macaroni & Cheese launched earlier this week in Canada and more than 30,000 people signed up to get a box.
Martina Davis, Brand Manager for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, said in the press release, “After seeing the huge response Pumpkin Spice Mac & Cheese received north of the border, and even hearing some heated debates about it down here, we had to bring it to the U.S. for Americans to try. Who knows? Maybe it could become a new North American fall favorite.”
According to Kraft, the new Pumpkin Spice Macaroni & Cheese is “best served curled up with a cozy scarf, flannel shirt, and pumpkin-scented candle.”
I’m also suggesting a cozy fire to toss the mac & cheese into when you realize it’s a dumpster fire of flavors.
Just stick to pumpkin spice buffalo wings.
