Yes, I went a little nuts in Trader Joe’s recently and purchased every single mac and cheese item I could find. Can you blame me?
With this product review, the fifth in the series, we move from the boxed, powdered mac and cheeses to the big leagues: frozen. Okay, so maybe not the big leagues, but better than boxed and powdered, right?
This review is for Joe’s Diner Mac ‘n Cheese. It featured four cheeses: Cheddar, Swiss, Havarti and Gouda.
Here is the nutritional information.
Close-up of the frozen product right out of the box.
Ingredients needed: 1 box of Joe’s Diner Mac ‘n Cheese and a microwave or conventional oven. I used a microwave.
As directed on the package, I removed the package from the box and punctured the plastic film with a fork. The product was microwaved for six minutes, then allowed to sit for an additional minute.
I removed the film, gave it a good stir, and popped it into a bowl.
How was it? Quite good! Four elbows up. It was just a tiny bit dry, but I like my mac and cheese saucy. It was actually very similar to Stouffer’s frozen macaroni and cheese – just not quite as creamy.
