Shop the Season: Indulge with Super Mac + Cheez

Jenna S. from the exec office indulges in Super Mac + Cheez (kiosk L4) at Bank of America Winter Village Holiday Shops

Your favorite childhood dish just got a lot…healthier. New food vendor Super Mac + Cheez has taken the traditional comfort food of mac and cheese and eliminated the cheese.

Is it still Mac and Cheese without the cheese? Yes!
The dish is still delicious--it's just vegan, meaning it is free of meat, eggs, dairy and other animal- derived ingredients. First time vendor and chef Chris Holvenstot had no previous experience in the culinary world. His friends wanted him to make a delicious summertime vegan recipe which led to the birth of Super Mac. Unlike many other food vendors in the park, Holvenstot steers clear of advertising his product as vegan and lets the bright signage and tasty looking product speak for itself.

According to Holvenstot, most people are usually afraid of the word vegan because the uncertainty that surrounds it. Doesn’t mac need the cheese to be mac and cheese?

So far his strategy of letting the patrons try the product without previous knowledge of it has paid off. The costumers are definitely satisfied with this this “classic” mac and cheese topped with baco bits, crispy onions, panko and smoked paprika.

For now this kiosk will just be serving their one version of mac but a vegan sloppy joe might be in the works for next year!
