Morning Start: Did you know Canadians eat the most Kraft Dinner out of any nation?

Your morning start for Wednesday, March 18

While Canada’s official national dish is the gravy and cheese curd covered delight that is poutine, the culinary cult classic among Canadians is by far mac and cheese.

Fun Fact of the day: Canadians eat more Kraft Dinner than any other nation?

It may seem obvious that Canadians’ passion for the bright yellow noodles is unparalleled by any other country, but the numbers are in to prove it.

Out of the 7 million boxes sold each week around the world, Canadians purchase 1.7 million of them. Some have even called KD Canada’s de facto national dish, with Canadians demolishing 3.2 boxes each in an average year, about 55 per cent more than Americans do.
