PRODUCT REVIEW: Annie's Homegrown Macaroni & Cheese
So, I took this little cup to work for my lunch this week to give it a try. It probably didn't hurt it had that cute little bunny starting at me on the package, you know I am a sucker for furry, four legged cute creatures to plug me along.
Anyhoo - more about the product. It was easy to make, simply tear off the plastic cover, remove the packet of cheese mx and fill with cold water to the "fill line" . . . didn't even need a measuring cup to measure my water, how easy is that!? Then mix it up well....this is where I started getting more worried because the water looked a little "grey". Well after reading the package I realized these were "wheat" and "organic" noodles which probably is what resulted in that appearance. I plugged forward and heating it up as directed for two minutes. When the microwave buzzed, I added the cheese mix and stirred and let it sit for another minute so the cheese could melt and get all ooey- gooey and then I went for it. And............surprise............. it was actually pretty darn good!
The cheese melted all nicely, not clumpy or "powerdy" tasting. It actually had a really nice "butter flavor" which I actually loved. It was just the perfect size for a nice small lunch or snack. I will definitely try them again. I am thinking the kids would really like the White cheddar flavor.
Have you tried it? Leave a comment below if so and let us know what you thought!
