Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received these products, free of charge, from Pirate's Booty, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them.
That last picture was lining them up and not able to decide which one to try for dinner!
Decisions can be hard sometimes!
All 4 varieties of the Pirate's Booty Mac n Cheese are made with organic pasta and 100% real cheese! There are NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and they have 0 g Trans Fat per serving. Which means that not only are they a good source of calcium and protein for your family, they are good for you too! And they're pretty tasty too!
Miss Grace decided to go with the 'different' variety first: Mac n Cheese in Mild Cheddar
As you can see it look JUST like the other macaroni and cheese product you are familiar with. BUT it has a cheesier taste that quote Miss Grace "tastes like real cheese". Pretty bad that the 7 yr old understands the difference between processed cheese taste and real cheese! But there you have it- after 2 helpings she declared it better than any other boxed mac n cheese!
The other 3 varieties (Mac n Cheese Aged White Cheddar, Shells n Cheese and Anchors and Cheese), are all with the Aged White Cheddar flavor from their famous Puff Snacks. Miss Grace declared them all VERY yummy, and admitted that she actually liked the Aged Cheddar flavor better. We all agreed as well! She had a lot of fun trying to figure out all the shapes in the Anchors and Cheese Mac too!
I only have 2 caveats for you about these Mac n Cheese dinners:
1. buy 2 boxes for dinner! Even as a side, we found the shells and anchors barely made enough for 3 adults and the 7 yr old. By making 2 boxes, I had enough to send off to school with Miss Grace the next day for lunch!
2. Use a little LESS milk than what is called for. With every box we found that the 1/4 cp left the sauce a bit too runny for our tastes, so we pulled back on the last box on the milk content and it was perfect!
The Pirate's Booty Mac n Cheese varieties are available nationwide- we found them at our local Target on sale for the same price as the other nationwide brands. So why buy then, when you can get organic pasta and real cheese, and a flavor your kids will LOVE?
We give these dinners our highest recommendation, and you will too once you try them!
