Kraft mac and cheese ice cream is back after popular demand. If you didn't get a chance to try the super cheesy ice cream, now's your opportunity—but only for a limited time.
In collaboration with the New York-born ice cream company Van Leeuwen, the mac and cheese flavored ice cream initially debuted back in July. The head-turning flavor caused quite the divide in the foodie community but, in under an hour, all 6,000 pints were reportedly sold out.
Now, after a sellout release, you can officially snag a pint by ordering online or picking one up in participating Van Leeuwen stores. The pints run for $12 online and are limited to two pints per order. From there, it will be shipped to your door, so you can enjoy the creamy goodness (or grossness) from the comfort of your home.

The mac and cheese company announced the news on social media, followed by a video highlighting positive feedback, including one person claiming they could eat an "entire tub" in one sitting.
"We screamed. You screamed. Everybody screamed for more @VanLeeuwen Ice Cream. SO WE MADE MORE! Get it while you can!" Kraft tweeted.

“We know that there is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than ice cream. That is why we wanted to combine two of the most iconic comfort foods to create an ice cream with the unforgettable flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese we all grew up with,” said Kraft's associate brand manager, Emily Violett, in the initial press release.
Van Leeuwen has supposedly produced more pints this time around, but if this release is anything like the first time, they'll go fast.
If you're on the fence about ordering a pint for yourself, it seems most people are fans of the flavor. Ice cream lovers have even taken to Twitter to proudly announce their orders.
"I don’t know how they did it, but @vanleeuwen has managed to make an ice cream that tastes exactly like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Highly recommend people try it, just for the experience of the first bite alone," wrote one person followed by a proud picture of their pint.

While most seem excited for the re-release, there are those still skeptical the ice cream flavor tastes that good.
"EEEEEEWWWWWWW! that just sounds 99 layers of nasty! I love kraft macaroni and cheese! I also love ice cream, but these are two things that should never touch the same bowl, or box or anything!" one person tweeted.
