Received this promptly, packaged well. Tried it today. Overall, it has a good flavor. After reading some reviews about lumps, I carefully added the butter into the macaroni first [ the recipe calls for 4 Tbsp. for one cup macaroni ] It's a lot of butter for a cup of macaroni cooked. So then I slowly added the room temp milk [for better blending...instead of cold milk] Then gradually added the dry cheese mix, while stirring after each addition. It seemed to blend just fine. Then the taste test....not bad, a fair substitute for homemade, although while eating it I came across some very hard bits that were not dissolved...and they didn't seem to want to be dissolved, if you know what I mean. There were only a few of them, just pushed them off to the side. I found this to be a very rich tasting bowl of mac, so much so that I didn't really want to eat much of it. [probably all the butter....and normally I like buttery tasting food.] conclusion....this is probably a quick alternative for baked mac and cheese, especially if you're feeding kids small portions. {up to you if you want them to have the butter} And if I remember correctly the Easy Mac, it reminds me of that. Since I now own the 1 lb. carton, I may try it sprinkled on some foods like broccoli or potatoes. Will use it for a quick version of baked mac and cheese....but it won't take the place of real baked mac and cheese for me. Kinda just left me wanting the real thing....and it is not that much more trouble for me to make it homemade.

It makes a nice cheese sauce. Takes a while to get the clumps out, but it does smooth out. Good flavor. I've used it as a base for mac & cheese, usually adding their orange cheddar powder by the tablespoonful. I like the no color though, for when I don't need to feed a child. :)

Advantages: Nice Pantry Staple
