**Annie's Macaroni and Cheese** is a delcious addition to the quick and easy meal arsenal contained within my pantry!  Feeding my family of seven can be challenging, sometimes.  With our crazy schedules, we need choices available that are quick and healthy.  We are a health conscious family that appreciates food that tastes good.  **Annie's Macaroni and Cheese** offers a variety of macaroni and cheese that appeals to almost every taste.  The sodium content is lower than other brands of mac and cheese.  There is no artificial anything in this delicious stuff!  It is simple to make; and, requires only the contents of the box as well as a small amount of milk to make.  With at least 3 grams of fiber per serving, and 10 grams of protein (before even adding the milk), this is a power-packed side dish.  We also have this sometimes as the main dish of a quick and easy meal.  Although I prefer to cook the majority of our food from scratch, there are times when this is just not practical.  This pasta product is worth paying more than other brands for.  It also often goes on sale.  Stock up on **Annie's Macaroni and Cheese**, especially the **Bunny Pasta with Yummy Cheese**!

I received a free sample of this, and I cooked it up for my boys who feel like macaroni and cheese its own food group. They were not impressed. They actually threw it out. The pasta took longer to cook than other brands, and seemed to turn to goo before it actually was done. It was a clumpy mess. The cheese was lumpy and dry and overall had a foul smell. I decided to try and make it edible, thinking it was an old batch or I had done something wrong. It was worth a shot right? Wrong. We all hated it. Will stay loyal to the blue box brand. If one is looking for healthy, they should probably skip the mac and cheese all together.

It is much better for you than other Mac and Cheese out there!

By 

from Puyallup, WA

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

I started using Annie's Macaroni and Cheese a few years back and I have bought it since. I was looking for a Mac and Cheese that wasn't full of all the chemicals and preservatives that others contained. Other Mac and cheese had that fake cheese powder that seemed so unhealthy. Reading the ingredients on Annie's package was so much better! This is more natural and made with natural/organic stuff. Whenever these are on sale I stock up. They have a pretty good taste to them and my kids seem to eat it up just as much as Kraft. The problem that I have with Annie's is that I find a lot less in a box. So you have to use more boxes to feed your family. It does cost more also, but sometimes you can find good deals on it. All in all it is a great Macaroni and Cheese and I would continue to buy this brand and type for my family. Annie's also has a variety of these boxed meals as well, so if you don't like this one you can try another. It's great to have on hand for a day when you need to fix something fast. It's easy to prepare and tasty to eat.

Amazing mac and cheese

By 

from USA

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

I love Annie's products. All of their varieties of mac and cheese are delicious, but my favorite is the white cheddar one in the purple box. It's a nice balance of an instant comfort food and natural ingredients that make it slightly less of a guilty pleasure. Sometimes I find that the sauce comes out thinner than the more unhealthy boxed mixes do, but you could probably just add more butter and less milk or something to change that.

HEAD OVER HEALS FOR ANNIE'S MACARONI AND CHEESE!!!

By 

from USA

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

This is the best EVER macaroni and cheese. A while back I tried to go back to Kraft and other brands of mac n' cheese and EW! I will NEVER eat them again. Annie's is full of flavor, it's much healthier. The texture is nice, not rubbery like the other brands. The cheese powder is where all the flavor lies, yes, I still add my own seasonings but I have always done this with any brand. There is no added coloring. It comes in Organic, and Gluten Free. I know many other people who have made the switch and agree that they will never go back either. The price is barely a few cents over the other brands that are no good, in flavor, and for your health.

This stuff ROCKS!!!

By 

from USA

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

This is by far some of the best mac and cheese ever and just love all the different flavors. I will never by kraft again thanks to Annie's. The taste is much richer and since the brand generally goes with organic ingredients I feel much better about supporting the brand.

Good, but take longer to cook than others

By 

from USA

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

I've tried many brands of Mac & Cheese, and generally with the powdered types I don't notice that much difference in taste. These Annie's ones have more natural ingredients as well as slightly higher price tag when they're regular price.

I have noticed that Annie's are slightly less salty, and the noodles take around 3-5 minutes longer to cook than other brands. If organic/natural food is a priority for you, then Annie's is a good choice. If not, there's no need to pay the premium.

Not the best

By 

from USA

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

It's good for basic convenience, but not super tasty. It's salty compared to other boxed macaroni and cheese, and the powdered cheese tends to clump a lot, even when following the box directions (which are not the traditional "dump over noodles, stir). Overall, it feeds everybody, but there are definitely other products that are easier and taste better.

Hands Down Best

By 

from Ransomville, NY

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

Warning: Once you try Annie's no other brand will ever compare. It may spoil your palate for other brands. My family loves it and every one else I have introduced to it loves it as well.
Creamy, no artificial colors, flavorful, just delicious.

Kid Approved!!

By 

from Auburn, IN

Comments about Annie's Macaroni and Cheese:

My boys are in love with Mac and Cheese....and I wanted to go healthy with it. We used to buy the other brands with the chemical products...Not any More!

Annies Mac and Cheese is all my boys will put a request in for!! They love it and love the wide variety of choices. When it goes on sale at our local grocery store, we stock up and I let the kids pick out the ones they want. Generally they seem to like the Shell one the best.

I have used milk, but if we are out I have used plain yogurt as a subsitute....and it works like a charm! We usually don't have any left over and before trying Annies we always had leftover mac and cheese....which doesn't taste the same a day or two later.

My kids just gobble it up and now I certainly keep a box or two handy in the pantry. The box itself is fun and entertaining to look at while waiting for the pasta to cook. But, Annies is it....nothing else will work for my kids and that is fine by me.
