Annie’s Macaroni & Cheese Review

I received in my MomaVox from Influenster box a single serve Annie’s Real Aged Cheddar Microwavable Macaroni and Cheese for review.  My thoughts are my own and my sons on this product.
 
Annie's Macaroni & Cheese is made with real cheese and my son had no problem with me taking a picture of him enjoying every last bit of it!  Andrew, pictured, stated that Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese is comparable to the Kraft microwavable – however I disagree.  Maybe he was just really hungry because it was right after school.  To me the texture (noodles) was a bit mushy and the cheese sauce was thick and not very tasty.  I am going to guess it is pretty high in sodium as well.
 
When you make it you first add water to the noodles and this white powder stuff that is used as a thickener and stir.  For one thing, there is far too much thickener in the container, at least there was in ours.  You then nook it for 3 minutes, stir it, then add the cheese powder in and stir until the cheese has fully been incorporated into the pasta and thickener.  Now I had tasted the thickener prior to adding the cheese powder to the mix just to see if it had a taste – it does – and definitely leaves an aftertaste on your palate.  I again tasted it after the cheese mixture was fully incorporated and naw… I will so pass!  Maybe it is my adult palate or that I tasted the thickener before adding the cheese, but personal, it was not very tasty to me.  It wasn't horrible mind you, just not what I would like in a mac and cheese and definitely not for the price they are asking for it.   I do like though that it is made in the United States.
