Shells & Real Aged Cheddar - Annie's Homegrown

Shells & Real Aged Cheddar

Annie’s Cheddar Mac (as we call it!) is our answer to all those chemically orange colored cheeses out there. We’ve taken our original Shells & White Cheddar and added a little color to it, naturally! Our totally natural cheese is colored with a plant extract called annatto. Annatto has been used in tropical American cultures for generations to color foods such as butter, cheese and mustard. The annatto tree grows 20 to 30 feet in height and when its seeds are stirred in water, they produce orange annatto dye, also called achiote, to color foods. Annie’s Cheddar Macaroni and cheese is a great alternative for kids who need to have that “orange” cheese on their macaroni.

    This is how boxed mac and cheese is supposed to taste!

    for years now I've loved Annie's boxed mac and cheese. shells, bunnies, macaroni, all good, until this new 'Yummier than ever' idea came around. now, these are the only ones I can eat without gagging, stop the changes to your recipe, and don't hurt my shells!

    you can tear my mac and cheese out of my cold dead hands

    I get this mac and cheese to mix it up from the white cheddar shells sometimes. I'll usually go for sharper sauce flavors with this one, whereas I'll lean more mild and creamy flavored with the white shells. All of Annie's mac and cheeses are the best boxed mac you'll find at the grocery store, and I've tried a lot of mac and cheese. Since discovering Annie's, I, a fully grown adult who can afford real meals and should definitely be incorporating more vegetables into my diet instead of living off pasta and cheese, probably eat mac and cheese 4-5 times a week. It's just that good.

    I'm eating this right now

    This is the perfect "I want to eat something delicious but don't want to put in any effort whatsoever" meal. I add a little butter and cheese to mine and it's done in under 20 minutes. I also love that organic wheat and ingredients are used so I don't feel ((that)) guilty about scarfing a box of mac every few days. Feed it to your kids, feed it to yourself, etc. everybody needs to eat this.

    The first time I had Annie's I tried the bigger box and fell in love. I purchased the smaller box and was highly disappointed. Unlike the bigger box it comes with this poor substitute of powder cheese instead of the cheese packet.

    The Most Oishi Mac and Cheese EVA!

    I loved this stuff as a little girl and it seems that even after all these years you're still all-natural, I hope I can find this stuff at Aldi's! (^O^

    Awesome flavour!

    This tastes better than all the other mac and cheese I ever had! The flavour is bold and the pasta has a chewy texture. I stocked up a lot after buying a box.

    Amazing!

    I have been trying to find a more "halal" version of mac and cheese that isn't made from animal enzymes and this is definitely it! It's so tasty! I use almond milk and Earth Balance butter for the recipe instead of regular butter with regular milk- it was out of this world amazing.

    Kids love it!!

    My 13 year old son and 15 year old nephew love Annie's Mac and Cheese. I first introduced it to them a couple of years ago to replace the Kraft Mac and Cheese. I thought it would be hard for them to transition to healthier foods but Annie's is a brand that has made it easy. I know that if it's Annie's it will be delicious.

    I love this!! A staple in my home!

    Now that I've found a quick, healthy, Mac & Cheese that makes me feel good about myself and my choices, I'm sticking to it. I don't think we've bought Kraft ANYTHING ever since, in maybe, a year or longer. Everything I find that is Annie's I immediately try it- I know that the quality ingredients and affordable prices will be just as comforting as the food itself. I'm SO glad I found Annie's!! The aged cheddar, my favorite kind, goes great with everything from tuna to peas!
