In what might be one of M&S‘s most exciting foodie launches of recent times, the British high street stalwart has created a carb-loaded feast that is already causing a storm on Instagram.
Taking the humble mac & cheese, M&S has done the unthinkable and served up the classic cheesy side dish sandwiched between two thick slices of sourdough bread for the ultimate double-carb lunch.
Available to pick up from 350 M&S cafés up and down the country, the M&S mac & cheese toastie is a lunchtime creation of epic proportions: macaroni pasta ‘tumbled in a four-cheese sauce of cave aged Cheddar for richness, Pecorino for bite, Emmental for nutty sweetness and stringy Mozzarella for a perfect ooze – all sandwiched in thick slices of the finest M&S sourdough bread smothered in a mustard and onion butter.’ We’re not drooling, you are…
In fact, the cheesy sauce used is the same sauce used in Marks & Spencer’s Best Ever Mac & Cheese, launched late last year, so you already know this oozy toastie is a winner.
Claire Hodgson M&S Café Developer said: ‘Taking months to develop, this Mac & Cheese Toastie is truly out of this world and perfect for the upcoming cooler months. Available now in over 350 cafés up and down the country – this first on the high-street cheesy goodness is not to be missed!’
Attracting a staggering over 1,000 comments on Instagram, M&S fans are already salivating at the mere sight of the M&S mac & cheese toastie: ‘this is so us,’ wrote one; ‘this will be our next date day,’ wrote another, tagging their friend.
M&S says: ‘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. We think this new Mac & Cheese Toastie is the ULTIMATE addition to the family!’
We’re already on our way to our local M&S café…
