New in the Market: Annie’s Macaroni & Cheese

Annie'sWhiteCheddarCups-300We’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.

Ha! That’s funny because I make that typo all the time. I don’t know why I get stuck on “York” and want to type “Your” inaestd. But, at least when I do it, I catch it in proofreading. 😉
