Annie's Rice Mac And Cheese

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My local health food store just began carrying Annie's Rice Mac and Cheese (the one that is just like Kraft--noodles and orange dried cheese in a packet).

What I like about it is that it says it's made in a dedicated gluten-free facility. However, before I spend money on it, has anyone tried it? Any good? I tried one like this right after diagnosis (by Deboles, I think), and ewww....I hoping this one is much better. I'd love a quick dinner every now and then.

Thanks for any input anyone has!

I second the tinkayada pasta and velveeta- it's great! Or just use shredded cheddar cheese, it's good too.

I haven't tried the annie's but we like the DeBoles rice pasta. It's white sauce though.

We didn't like the Annie's or DeBoles mac n cheese. The baby took one bite and spit it out, cracked me up since the kid is usually a human garbage disposal. We also use Amy's or Tinky w/velveeta or Kraft cheese powder in a tube for a quick lunch.

I have to admit I was really excited about this stuff at first because I love Annies mac and cheese (back when I could eat it, that is). But this pasta isn't very good, I wasn't that impressed with it. I have only tried one box though, and it was on a day I was not having a good stomach time anyway, so I need to try again.

I love Amy's frozen and also making my own from scratch now - much better than the box kind which I used to basically worship.

Amy's frozen gives me a stomach ache every time I eat it, I think they have cross-contamination issues, which has been discussed in other threads.

The deboles stuff nearly ate my spoon, but I haven't tried the annies stuff yet, though I've been looking for it.

Tinkyada and Velveeta is the bees knees. I made this for dinner for my boyfriend and I the other night and he ate the whole bowl, thought it was great. YUmmy yum.

I don't use the Kraft powder that comes in the box, although some people do. It just makes me nervous being in the same container as regular pasta.

Kraft sells the cheese seperately in a skinny blue shaker tube. It is gluten free, last time I bought it. It's been a couple of months though, so of course, double check before you use it.

Thanks to everyone for their replies; I'm kind of bummed to hear that it's not that good. Ah, well--I'll try the Tinkyada and Velveeta route.

Kailynsmom--I found the shaker Kraft cheese in Walmart. I forgot which section, though, as it's been awhile, but it was definitely in Walmart. Hope that helps!
