Pros: Organic, real cheese, generous amount of cheese included, recyclable packaging
When I was a kid Mac & Cheese was my family's comfort food. Crappy day at work for mom? Mac & Cheese for dinner. Didn't win at my track meet? Mac & Cheese for dinner. Life generally dealing a low blow? Mac & Cheese for dinner. Fortunately I didn't have very many comfort food requiring incidents, otherwise my next rating would be of the best green diet pill! Unfortunately, my well intentioned mom only bought Velveeta Shells and Cheese, which, in the course of my green enlightenment I've discovered is really nothing other than an amalgam of chemicals that could probably survive/fend off a nuclear attack.
When a boyfriend disaster struck a few months ago and I felt the urge for Mac & Cheese goodness, I picked up Annie's Shells and Cheese -- admittedly not expecting much -- and I was bowled over by how delish it was. The cheese is creamy -- and real! -- it cooks up fast, and my troubles melted away as the cheese melted into the shells. Mmmm...sounds good right now, even without a minor crisis!!
