Product Review: Pirate’s Booty Mac & Cheese Mild Cheddar - Mac & Cheese Chick

Recently, the good folks at Pirate’s Booty were kind enough to send me four boxes of their new Mac & Cheese to try.

All four varieties of their new mac & cheese line are made with organic pasta (certified organic by Oregon Tilth) and ingredients you can actually pronounce. So, of course I was more than happy to give them a try!

Here’s what you’ll need to prepare this mac & cheese.

Milk and some butter – so easy, right? The instructions on the box call for 1/2 tablespoon of butter, but I went with a whole tablespoon to add a bit of richness. Also, I used fat-free milk instead of 2%.

Following the box directions, I boiled 6 cups of water, popped in the macaroni, stirred, and let it simmer for 7 minutes. I then drained it and added it back to the pot. In went the milk, butter and cheese powder (apparently the day-glo orange color of the cheese DOES exist in nature, as this product is made with 100% real cheese).

After giving it a thorough stir to ensure that all the ingredients melded into an amazing and lovely cheese sauce, I then let the mac & cheese sit for about three minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.

The end result? A delicious mac and cheese with a very delicate, mild cheese flavor. Three elbows up! There was no powdery, chemical taste that you find with other boxed brands. For me, I’ll be adding it to my pantry soon!
