ROSSLYN, Va. —Cheese lovers, rejoice: Frozen foods manufacturer Stouffer’s has created a macaroni and cheese dispenser for convenience stores, restaurants and other foodservice establishments.
The Mac on Tap system contains an internal heater that keeps pre-cooked Stouffer’s macaroni and cheese at serving temperatures, a Stouffer’s spokesperson told Today. It resembles common nacho cheese dispensers with its lever-system that releases noodles straight from the tap.
