Public Company Information:


CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cracker Barrel Cheese, a brand honored with more than 280 awards for its deliciously irresistible cheese, has met its perfect match: macaroni. New Cracker Barrel Macaroni & Cheese is making its presence known in the boxed dinner aisle and has launched a creative campaign centered on its award-winning taste.

Cracker Barrel has such a rich history of cheese-making, known and loved for its smooth creaminess and bold sharpness,” said Johnni Rodgers, Brand Manager of meal solutions at Kraft Heinz. “A natural next step was to combine our award-winning cheddar with macaroni – bringing a premium and authentic offering to the boxed dinner aisle.”

Cracker Barrel Macaroni & Cheese is now available at major retailers in four decadent varieties:

  • Sharp Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese
  • Sharp White Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese
  • Cheddar Havarti Macaroni & Cheese
  • Sharp Cheddar & Bacon Macaroni & Cheese

The Cracker Barrel Macaroni & Cheese brand will launch a creative campaign called “Award Winning” on April 11th across TV, digital, social, and in-store.

The campaign uses the honored cheddar’s 60-year award-winning history to focus on the idea that Cracker Barrel cheese outranks other awards – from dog shows to spelling bees – showing the most important award is an award worth eating.
