Dinner isn't always easy to make when you have 3 young children who are picky eaters and don't like everything you cook. Dinner is always a problem for me in my house because I don't always know what to cook for my kids. Luckily for me, my kids love eating Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese and anything I make with it. I always say with Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese dinner is never a problem. I can literally make a countless number of dishes using what's in this box.
Sometimes I cook it the way it's supposed to be cooked, just regular macaroni and cheese, and make some fried or baked chicken on the side. Other time I like to be a little more creative and turn it into something other than the usual mac and cheese. I can add broccoli and cut up chicken breast to the mix and have an entire dinner ready in less than an hour. Sometimes I add ground beef to the mix and make what my kids call, "burger mac and cheese." There are many more ways I have used Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese to make an entire dinner for my family. I honestly use Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese to make dinner with at least once a week now because no matter what I make using it, my kids will love it and eat every last bit of it.
You will always find a couple of boxes of it in my pantry because I am determined to never run out of it.

I love macaroni and cheese and usually make my own from scratch. In a lazy mood one day, I decided to try a box of Velveeta Mac 'n Cheese for dinner. After trying it, I can honestly say that I don't know what the hype is about this macaroni and cheese. The noodles were fine, but the cheese sauce on the pasta tasted fake. The cheese sauce had a slimy texture about it, instead of a gooey texture like others that I have tried.

Great Side Dish

By 

from Utah

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

We will often make this Velveeta shells and cheese as a side dish to go with hot dogs or chicken. It is quick and easy to make, and it has a reasonably good amount of protein in it, which means that it provides some good nutritional value. On the downside, it is quite high in saturated fat and sodium. But that is expected with a packaged food that has cheese in it. Sometimes we will add the chicken to the shells and cheese or else add a couple vegetables to provide some variety of flavor. Our kids will eat it up easily, and we enjoy it as well. One downside is that the box is a little small for a whole family. We could easily use about a box and a half fora meal, although we usually only use one box and fill in the rest of the meal with something else. It would be nice if they would come out with a larger sized box that could feed a whole family more easily. It is a family favorite that wean to continue using.

Tastes good but not a healthy option

By 

from USA

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

This mac and cheese is probably among the creamiest of the store bought box mixes. It has a lot of cheese flavor and a nice thick sauce. However it tastes and looks super artificial. I know mac and cheese isn't a health food but when I eat this stuff I feel like I'm eating something awful for me. Tastes good and I'm sure kids would like it, but there are probably alternatives with fewer artificial ingredients.

Childhood favorite

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

For as long as I can remember, I have liked mac and cheese. It is as sought after in my home as a pizza pie from New York City. Velveeta mac and cheese has mastered it's territory. The very fact that it has taken powdered cheese out of the equation says a whole lot about the product as a whole. I also like the hell shape. The shape of the mac - it cups a bit of the creamy cheese in every bite. It is easy to cook but seems to take slightly longer than other brands. The cheese s quite thick and smooth. Sometimes if it seems a bit over the top I add a little bit of milk to it and it helps to perfect it even more. Out of all the mac and cheese brands that I am personally familiar with - Velveeta Mac and Cheese is the best that I have come across so far. Overall it is a really great product, a classic that has become a family favorite.

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

I definitely prefer this over the regular kraft mac n cheese. I love the shell pasta, and the cheese is so tasty. It is super easy to make for a quick lunch. You don't have to even add any ingredients and its done in no time. Its a great side dish for dinner too.

Summarize this product in one sentence.

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

Kraft Velveeta cheese has a wonderful, unique flavor that cannot be copied. It melts easier and smoother than other types of cheese. There is no substitute for Velveeta when making pimento cheese! We also use Velveeta for nachos and on baked potatoes.

The Absolute Best

By

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

I love all things Velveeta. They definitely trumped competitors with this product. It is extremely easy to make very flavorful. This is the best box mac and cheese dinner on the market, period. Not only is it offered in regular shells and cheese, it's offered with bacon and broccoli as well.

Awesomely tasty Macaroni and Cheese!

By

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

I love Velveeta mac 'n cheese! It is so easy to make and tastes like you spent hours making the perfect macaroni and cheese! It tastes smooth and creamy! It is such a comfort food. If I am not in the mood to make homemade mac n' cheese I turn to Velveeta. The other brands do not compare at all to the taste and quality of Velveeta!

My Favorite

Comments about Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese:

Velveeta Mac 'n Cheese is my absolute favorite boxed macaroni and cheese. It tastes like it's homemade! The Velveeta is SO creamy, hearty, and rich. The saltiness is just perfect. This is my favorite meal to snuggle up with a blanket and movie! In my opinion, Super easy to prepare, all you need is a pot and water.
