We’ve never meet a kid who doesn’t love mac & cheese. Annie’s has expanded its macaroni and cheese products with the introduction of three Macaroni & Cheese Mircowavable Cups: Real Aged Cheddar, White Cheddar, and Rice Pasta & Cheddar which is gluten-free. Each was easy to prepare: add cold water to a fill line, heat, add cheese packet, and let stand 2 minutes. Each 2-ounce package made about 1 cup of prepared macaroni and cheese, which is a perfect kid-sized portion. Both Real Aged Cheddar and White Cheddar had 220 calories and Rice Pasta & Cheddar had 230 calories.
The varieties are all made from non-GMO ingredients and Real Aged Cheddar and White Cheddar are certified organic by Oregon Tilth. The Rice Pasta & Cheddar is not organic because the pasta source is not. No artificial flavors or colors are used.
Our 4-year old taster liked all the varieties but declared the “yellow one the best” (Real Aged Cheddar). These are good meals to keep on hand when time is tight.
