Not bad for what it is. It obviously taste a bit different than regular Mac and cheese but I would buy it again. Just needs to be seasoned is all. Not creamy but not a deal breaker either

The taste was awful, the texture though was decent, pasta held up great. But it’s so gross if you don’t add seasoning to it. Do not eat this plain.

Love this Mac and cheese! Flavor and texture are really good and I love that it has a lot of protein. Just make sure to rinse noodles thoroughly before adding the cheese.

This is by far my favorite GF boxed Mac & cheese! I do add the two tablespoons butter, and it is yummy! I also appreciate the 16 grams of protein.

I like regular Banza pasta with sauce, but this is not good. What little flavor it does have is…off. I was able to finish it and not waste a meal by sprinkling a concerning amount of salt on top, but I won’t be buying this again. Stick to Kraft if you eat dairy!

Not mac and cheese

blackcatlady - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I’d describe this as pasta with a very subtle dairy-based sauce. Creamy but not cheesy at all. It’s pretty bland on its own but great with seasoning or a drizzle of hot sauce.

I don’t understand the negative reviews. This was super easy to make and it was SO GOOD! I swear it tastes just like KFC’s mac and cheese. My husband also loved it and so did our picky 4 year old.

Banza gf Mac and cheese is without a doubt the most disgusting gf product I have bought in 13 years of having celiacs. I followed the directions perfectly and used the optional butter. The noodles were so destroyed I couldn't serve it. Just buy Kraft gf Mac and cheese.

Loved the mac and cheese itself. The pasta could have fooled me and the cheese sauce is surprisingly close to other brands considering the really short, wholesome ingredient list. Great healthy alternative that I wasn't even hesitant to feed my 1 year old. My issue is that the box is the same size as every other mac and cheese box, but you get maybe half the amount 😅 It was a sad portion and I felt pretty misled when I opened the box

I took a few bites and threw the rest away. I’m not a picky eater, this just wasn’t good. The sauce had a weird taste to it and the texture of the noodles didn’t help…

My favorite guilt free pasta

Mac and cheese lover - 1 year ago
originally posted on eatbanza.com
I’m a college student in graduate school looking for healthy/easy meals to prepare for myself and I try to avoid gluten at all costs. Tried this and LOVE this Mac and cheese…It’s a staple meal for me now! If you rinse it really well you can barely taste the chickpea! The classic elbow is my favorite… I follow the exact instructions and it turns out perfect every single time! I really like the texture, it’s more dense as opposed to any other boxed Mac and cheese. It’s VERY filling one serving (1/2 the box) keeps me satisfied for hours. If you have issues with gas/bloating like myself I’d recommend taking an anti acid beforehand. It is a little pricey but so worth it!!

This is a great tasty and healthier than the latter, dinner option especially when you’re in a pinch or don’t feel like cooking. Sometimes I add a little Franks to mine for a kick.
