This is my favorite brand of mac & cheese. The only downside about buying the 16oz size of this is that the plastic container doesn’t come with a lid.

Not Mac & Cheese

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
4524 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
My package of Mac & Cheese must have been filled at the start or end of a production run, because there was perhaps 10 small pieces of macaroni in the bowl. The rest was sauce. Not the hearty, filling dinner I was hoping for. The sauce is good, and if there had been a reasonable amount of macaroni, it would have been a good dinner. It was expensive for what I got, and I expect better from a brand like Panera Bread.

Insanely salty (and I like salt). I’ve gotten this mac and cheese in the past, though it’s been at least a year, and I do not ever recall having this issue.

My child is obsessed with panera Mac and cheese. Got a couple of these for her since we don't live particularly close to one. She loves them and says they taste just the same. Would be great if they we a little cheaper for the amount, but what are you gonna do

Not as good as the real thing

DT - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
This is definitely not as good as the real thing unfortunately. White cheddar usually has a bit of bite/sharpness to it and this missed the mark. I don't eat this very often so I was hoping this could be a cheaper alternative when the craving comes, but I guess I'll have to continue going to Panera.

Katie M - 2 years ago
I’m torn on this because I do think it taste very close if not identical to the restaurant Mac, but I understand where people the plastic taste. Every so often I get a bite that is off, but for the most part it’s really good. I didn’t microwave it in the container itself. I think it’s worth it if you are craving the Mac & cheese but wanna get a better bang for your buck.

Delicious, but Lactose Intolerants Beware

4 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Katie - 2 years ago
I’ve loved this dish for ages, and Target seems to be the only place that carries it anymore. The pasta isn’t mushy, the sauce is hearty, creamy, and delightfully cheesy. HOWEVER…if you are even the slightest bit lactose intolerant, do yourself a favor a steer clear. Even with FOUR Lactase pills, I’ve been dealing with, well, the after affects of what happens when one eats dairy when one is lactose intolerant.
