  1. OMG! It’s so true that they lie!! I can never open mac and cheese by the way the box says. I try every time to ‘Push Here’ and always end up prying open the box from the top. Glad I’m not the only one.


  2. You guys do realize you’re supposed to open it just like that. You press in to dimple the cardboard and grasp with your thumb and forefinger, and tear the top lid off. The thumb-part looks perforated but you don’t need to punch it out along the scored line.

    After all, you don’t think they expect you to somehow extract the cheese powder packet through a little hole, right?

  3. I used to work for a Kraft package production plant; there used to be perforations at that point, so that you pushed a tab in and used it to rip the top off. They eliminated the machine that punched the perfs because it A) slowed the line by a slight amount, B) broke regularly, and C) added about .0005 cents to the cost of producing a box for the electricity.

  4. I just always use a knife to open the box… Of course, I also use Annie’s Organics brand, because the Kraft stuff is vile (and, I strongly suspect, mutagenic).

  5. Actually, if it’s mutagenic, your children will have seven fingers. Presuming you already have six because your parents ate the stuff before you were conceived. Also, your skin will probably tan better due to the orange glow.
