If you grew up in Canada then you have tried Kraft Dinner. The meal is a mainstay for millions of Canadian families. In fact, the meal is so well known that Pundit Rex Murphy wrote “Kraft Dinner revolves in that all-but-unobtainable orbit of the Tim Hortons doughnut and the A&W Teen Burger. It is one of that great trinity of quick digestibles that have been enrolled as genuine Canadian cultural icons.” The idea of creating processed cheese was actually invented by a Canadian – James Lewis Kraft – and the first version of KD was introduced in 1937 when it was immediately considered a “hearty meal for families”.
Whatever the history of the product, KD has helped many a Canadian get through school, or a budget problem or a late night snack attack! In our minds, the invention of KD was truly a Brilliant Moment!
