Superhero-Themed Mac-and-Cheese

Kraft Mac & Cheese Launches Limited Edition Black Panther Boxes

— September 20, 2022 — Lifestyle
This fall, in celebration of the highly anticipated movie release of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Kraft Mac & Cheese is launching limited-edition Black Panther-inspired boxes. Kraft Mac & Cheese believes in the positive power of comfort for all ages. By collaborating with Marvel, a new generation of fans can have the creamy, cheesy goodness they expect from Kraft Mac & Cheese now in Wakanda -inspired noodle shapes. 

The shapes include the iconic Wakanda shield and the Kimoyo Blue Bead bracelet worn by several characters. In the films, the beads – made from Vibranium – are an example of Wakanda’s advanced communication technologies and provide a lifetime of medical knowledge to those who wear them. Black Panther fans know that the Wakandans are given these at birth and wear them throughout their lives. Purchasers of the limited-time Kraft Mac & Cheese boxes can enjoy them with each cheesy spoonful.

The new Kraft Mac & Cheese Black Panther shapes will be available on grocery shelves nationwide this fall.
