They still will not let you inside the fence to take a picture. We asked super nicely and they said it was company policy.

High security to protect a noodle. A little ridiculous. You need to contact Kraft Corporate or Public Relations to take a photo.... if you don't, just get out of your car and take it. They send security to walk (slowly) out and tell you, but by then your picture is done and you can leave.

It's a noodle sculpture...not a secret recipe. Simmer down, Kraft!

As if you're some Eye of the Noodle spymaster...cheesh...

Kraft won't let you in for a picture. You can only get one from the street with the chain link fence.:(
