Annie's Homegrown Microwavable Macaroni & Cheese, White Cheddar Review


I have always been a stay at home mom, other than when I chose to take on a part time job just to do something different, but even then, it was worked around my time with my kids, who are now adults.  Once they became young teenagers, and I needed to have an income to pay bills, I chose to start a small in home childcare, so I could still be at home with them.  That being said, I am able to make home cooked meals, though I, like many others, choose to be able to spend as much time interacting with the children as possible, so sometimes, having convenient foods around is really a plus.

If you are like me, you see that the convenient foods available sometimes are not very good for you, much less the children. So when I was sent the Annie's Microwavable White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese, I was really intrigued.  I know that Annie's Homegrown is a company that provides products that are better for you. So, I looked into this product and found out that not only is it made with real cheese, there are no artificial flavors, no synthetic colors, or any preservatives. And the pasta is organic!  This definitely peaked my interest. So I made it for myself, and I have to say, it was really good.  I definitely feel comfortable providing this to my grandchildren and home childcare kiddos.  And all that time and effort saved in the kitchen will definitely be filled with me getting to spend more time with them all.

After reading what I have to say, here is what they say:
Annie's new Macaroni & Cheese Microwavable Cups, available in Real Aged Cheddar, White Cheddar and Gluten Free Rice Pasta & Cheddar, are irresistibly delicious! One of the first microwavable cups with macaroni & cheese made with 100% real cheese and high quality organic and natural ingredients, Annie's latest product is perfect for meal time or snack time.
