The company launched a virtual campaign urging fans to push for the fusion of the two comfort foods

Kraft is vying for the "biggest, mac-iest" crossover with McDonald's: A Big Mac loaded with heaping scoops of mac and cheese.

One pre-populated Tweet reads, "Hi @mcdonalds your mac and cheese results just came back negative. & that’s no good. #wheresthemac"

Kraft even offered those who Tweeted for the cause a coupon for a free box of mac and cheese. As of Friday, the website noted the coupons were all out.

Kraft continued to egg McDonald's on, calling the chain out on Twitter for looking the other way at their efforts.
