Some days you just need comfort food. Warm, soft, super-filling beige food that feels like a hug from the inside, and on those days you need to get yourselves down to your local Marks & Spencer cafe and stat. Why? Because they’ve just jumped straight into the future with a macaroni cheese toastie, because why settle for one or the other when you can eat them combined, eh?
M&S announced the incredibly important food news via their PR Instagram account (@marksandspencerfoodpr), and described their latest launch as: “A sourdough toastie packed with a combination of pasta tumbled in our iconic cheesy sauce (the same used in Our Best Ever Mac & Cheese). With the ultimate blend of cave aged cheddar cheese for richness, Pecorino for bite, Emmental for nutty sweetness and stringy mozzarella for perfect ooze.”
The toasties are available immediately across 350 cafes nationwide and retail at £5.25 a portion.
A spokesperson for M&S said that the creation took “months to develop ” and that it’s “perfect for the upcoming cooler months”.
“Gone are the days of mac & cheese simply being a side dish, its gourmet renaissance over the past few years has well and truly cemented it as a must-eat pasta dish in its own right. Sales of Our Best Ever Mac & Cheese have proved this popularity as over a million happy customers have enjoyed the dish since launching last October. We see consistently high sales across our entire mac & cheese range from mini bites to our Plant Kitchen vegan option, Made Without Wheat and classic varieties” they added.
We’ll sit back and wait for your reviews to roll in…
