Aussie Twitter Is Losing Its Mind Over Whether We Actually Grew Up With Mac ‘N’ Cheese

Umm…was this a thing I missed?

As an Aussie that grew up in the golden age of ABC Kids and Nickelodeon, I somehow knew that mac ‘n’ cheese was a thing that people frothed over — even though I had never tried it myself.

Like, why did 4-year-old me know that this thing was special?

Last night, Adam Liaw — Aussie chef, TV personality and national treasure — dropped a mac ‘n’ cheese truth bomb that sent Australian Twitter into collective overdrive.

I submit to you that mac’n cheese was nowhere near as iconic in the childhoods of most Australians as TV shows and food writers would have you believe.

And Adam, the voice of the people, spoke to something deep inside every Aussie — because most of Twitter agreed with him.

@adamliaw ?. I’m married to a Nth American and he gets weird for the packet weirdness and all I taste is salt and sadness.

I don’t think I even tried it until my late teens.

Avoid at all costs.

It also sparked a debate about which dishes are more important to our collective history, with Australians suggesting that tuna mornay, Continental Alfredo and cheese toasties have more weight than mac ‘n’ cheese.

@adamliaw Zero memory of mac’n cheese from childhood. My fave childhood food memories involve smoked salmon bagels, Yorkshire puddings and yum cha chicken feet
