Jefferson flips out

TV viewers may have noticed a new ad campaign for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, which features a commercial in which Thomas Jefferson shows up at a modern-day back yard party to discover that the woman of the house has stolen his mac and cheese recipe. Our third President then proceeds to smash the deck furniture. You can find the commercial on YouTube.

As luck would have it, Dish had a chance to try Jefferson’s mac and cheese during a recent tour of Monticello. We have yet to try the Kraft version, but we doubt it compares to the original; or would want to make us smash furniture.

While Jefferson may have popularized mac and cheese in America, having discovered it while he was living in Paris, Kraft began selling it to the masses in 1937.
