The mac & cheese bar will span about 6 feet and feature several different kinds of mac & cheese, including roasted tomato, pulled pork, vegan, and of course, the good ol' basic kind. But with the store's other prepared food options, the custom mac & cheese flavor possibilities are wonderfully -- if not alarmingly -- endless. You may find yourself eating a $10 takeout bowl full of fried chicken mac & cheese someday. Or maybe some vegan mac & cheese loaded with kale from the salad bar, if you want to pretend you're in Brooklyn.
So far, Whole Foods has yet to say if it plans to add mac & cheese bars to other stores across the country, but seeing as it has already rolled out such things as a self-serve mochi bar and a produce butcher in recent months, it wouldn't be too surprising. In the meantime, best of luck setting a mac & cheese budget.
