In a world where a different food is celebrated daily, you’ll be glad to know there is a holiday for one the best comfort foods around. Yes, I’m talking about creamy and delicious macaroni and cheese, and the holiday in celebration of the stuff falls on Sunday, July 14 this year. Of course, you’re going to want to indulge in a bowl (or three) of the cheesy entrée to celebrate, and these National Mac and Cheese Day 2019 deals on July 14 will help you satisfy your craving while taking it easy on your wallet.
Mac and cheese is one of those foods that seems to be universally loved, well, unless you’re lactose intolerant. Dairy allergies aside, it’s a cheesy, carb-filled comfort food that pretty much hits the spot every time you have it. So, it’s no surprise it has its own holiday, but The National Day Calendar website is actually “unable to identify the creator of Mac and Cheese Day” — which is really a shame because arguably no one deserves more praise than the originator of such a delicious celebration. OK, maybe that’s taking it a little too far, but I bet you’re also glad this holiday exists, because it means you can chow down on the cheesy goodness without spending a fortune. Speaking of money, let’s get to these July 14 deals that will have you eating (and saving money) in no time.
