I"ve never tried the microwavable ones...I do buy the boxed ones where you have to cook the shells in boiling water and afterward add the cheese packet. I like to call them Kraft Crack Shells. I freaking LOVE those things. How do the microwavable cups versions taste? I never tried 'em because I figured they aren't as crackalicious as the original cook-it-yourself ones.
