Notice anything different about your Kraft mac and cheese? Well, it appears nobody else did either!

And that's a good thing for Kraft Heinz.

The company removed artificial preservatives and dyes from its classic mac and cheese recipe late last year.

The ingredients have been replaced with newer, less artificial ones.

In order to preserve that bright orange look Kraft says its loyals love, it swapped yellow 5 and yellow 6 - which some customers had been asking them to remove - for natural spices like paprika and turmeric.

The company has sold more than 50 million boxes of the new mac and cheese so far.
