The comfort food heavens have opened. Whole Foods has announced its first ever mac and cheese bar.
The self-service comfort food station will launch at Denver’s Union Station at their new Whole Foods location. Customers can expect a six-foot long bar that serves up a tantalizing variety of macaroni and cheese.
Just some of the options included? Lovers of the traditional fare will find a classic mac and cheese recipe. A roasted tomato twist will cater to those who desire a veggie-laden option, while the barbecue pulled pork mac and cheese is sure to provide an oasis of comfort for carnivore lovers. And if you’re a vegan, have no fear; America’s most popular health-food store would never exclude you from such an incredible opportunity. There will be a non-dairy mac and cheese at the bar as well.
The powers-that-be at Whole Foods will celebrate the deliciousness with a 100-pound cheese tower, artfully crafted by local vendors. But don’t try to eat it!
Customers are losing their minds over the news, taking to twitter to share their delight. And they’re begging the grocery chain to bring the mac and cheese bar to their local Whole Foods. Whether or not Whole Foods will spread the good cheer of mac and cheese past Denver’s Union Station remains to be seen… But judging by the crowd’s reaction, installing a bar in numerous whole foods would definitely get the popular vote.
Since Amazon acquired Whole Foods, the company has been hinting at new changes – and not just their price drops on notoriously expensive items like tilapia. “We’re growing something good, this is just the beginning,” read Whole Food-Amazon signs that hover above the heads of customers in store.
According to the many customers tweeting up a storm, mac and cheese bars are certainly something good.

Other Crazy Whole Foods Rollouts?
The mac and cheese bar is big news for Whole Foods fans and comfort food lovers in Denver. But this isn’t the first new rollout that we’ve seen in recent months.
Here are just two of the most insane Whole Foods features the company has recently come out with:
Produce Butcher: The 43,000 square foot Whole Foods in Manhattan’s Bryant park feautres, among other things, a produce butcher. That means customers can opt for “an onsite team member who will cut, slice, dice, julienne, chop, and grate any produce item at a shopper’s request,” according to a company press release.
Mochi Bar: In early 2017, Whole Foods came out with a full self-service mochi bar. The Japanese-American sweet treat features ice cream balls rolled in sweet rice balls. The flavors available? “Strawberry, Vanilla Bean, Matcha Green Tea, Red Bean, Double Chocolate, Black Sesame, Kona Coffee, Mango and more,” according to the Whole Foods website.
