Later, other users hopped into the discussion. A user claimed, "I don't like mac and cheese and never have...I REALLY hate the baked/casserole kind, too...so, if they want it?...they'll get the boxed kind and be happy they got it at all! (but I do salt the water!)." Another added, "Salt in the water but my secret is cheese my mum brings from England, real farm made cheddar. American cheddar is like chewing on erasers."

A Mac and cheese lover had another suggestion, "Salting your pasta water (regardless of if you’re cooking mac and cheese or any other kind of pasta) is an absolute game changer. No excuse to not do it." "This. I season my cheese mixture w/salt, pepper and smoked paprika. And top with smoked cheddar," a user suggested another method. A user then added, " I only season it with salt just to start it off. Cus that complete seasoning gone set you straight." Someone recommended, "Gotta boil the noodles in chicken stock and seasoning."

A user then wondered, "Me watching all the people who don't cook get mad in the replies." Another opined, "Is the butter salted? Or like a compound butter or something?" "Season it? I use butter does that count?" a user stated. Another added, You put salt and pepper In your water, calm down." A user explained, "Y’all don’t wash the water before y’all boil y’all water and that’s why I can’t eat everybody’s food." Someone else explained how they use veggies in mac and cheese, "The cheese already has so much sodium? And by seasoning, I just know you’re talking about it some mystery concoction that comes out of a shaker, not actual veggies."
