Annie's Homegrown Shells and Real Aged Cheddar
170 g
Annie’s Cheddar Mac is the answer to all those chemically orange coloured cheeses out there. They’ve taken the original Shells & White Cheddar and added a little colour to it, naturally! This totally natural cheese is coloured with a plant extract called annatto. Annatto has been used in tropical American cultures for generations to colour 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 colour foods. Annie’s Cheddar Macaroni and cheese is a great alternative for kids who need to have that “orange” cheese on their macaroni.

Arlene: a few months ago

I purchase this for my grandchildren and they like it a lot. Atleast we know that it has a guarantee of good things with it being Organic. Thank you.

Moira: a few months ago

I was disappointed that I didn't care for the taste or texture of this. I'll just have to go back to making my own from scratch (which is really not much more difficult or time consuming than a boxed mix anyway).

Maria: more than a year ago

i stock up on this when on sale, best price that I can find. My toddler loves all Annie's pasta and I don't feel guilty feeding it to him!

Kimberley: more than a year ago

This is so much better than the terrible KD I ate as a kid. As an adult, even though I know this is a product for parents who want to feed their kids a more wholesome option, I'm perfectly okay to indulge in this just for myself!

This is so unbelievably delicious! Creamy, cheesy. For the sauce, I made mine with less butter and milk recommended. I simply heated up a tiny bit of butter & plain soy milk and stirred in a lot of the pasta water that I saved. I whisked and created a thin sauce then added pasta in and let it all simmer and thicken a bit. I like my mac and cheese with a creamy sauce vs dried up. I cannot wait to buy more
