Product Description

From the time of Annie's first product, a small but growing group of you who are wheat- and gluten-intolerant have suggested we produce a wheat- and gluten-free macaroni and cheese. It may seem a wheat- and gluten-free product has been a long time in coming! Thank you for your patience and support. Please know it has been especially gratifying for us to create Annie's Rice Pasta & Cheddar.

About the Brand

Annie's Homegrown is a good company with good people that makes good food and does good stuff. From the beginning, Annie impressed upon us the necessity of operating responsibly by giving back to the community. Because if you don't take care of the folks who are taking care of you, everything gets ugly. And anyone who thinks an ugly planet is a healthy planet is a wackadoo. Annie's motto: Eat Responsibly. Act Responsibly.

Annie's Homegrown has stayed committed to its goals even as the company has expanded. With distribution in all 50 states, it's become the second-largest brand of macaroni and cheese in the U.S. And in their own words: "We know we're the first most delicious."

History of Annie's Homegrown

After creating Smartfood in 1982, one of the fastest-selling snack food products in U.S. history, Annie Withey co-founded Annie's Homegrown in 1989 with the idea of making a great-tasting, all-natural macaroni and cheese. In the end, though, she did a lot more than that.

In 1998, Annie's Homegrown was the first to develop and introduce three amazing kinds of organic macaroni and cheese. At the end of 2001, Annie's introduced a line of certified organic pasta, dressed up in a lovely bright purple box. And in 2005, Annie's introduced three flavors of Deluxe Mac and Cheese, four awesome flavors of organic crackers that they call Cheddar Bunnies, and three flavors of graham crackers called Bunny Grahams, made with organic ingredients.

Annie continues to be the inspirational leader of Annie's. She works from her home in Connecticut, answering some consumer letters and providing input on new product and marketing ideas. She remains the company's corporate conscience.

Flavor Name: Cheddar Mac & CheeseSize: 6 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
This may not be "Kraft," but in my opinion it is better than the other gluten free mac 'n cheese mixes out there. It isn't terribly appropriate to compare it to a gluten box mix as those who buy this product do so because they CAN'T eat the gluten box mix. I like this product for a fast, tasty gluten free meal- I add coarse ground black pepper and vietnamese hot sauce, sometimes sprinkling chopped tomatoes and/or red peppers on top as a garnish. Of course homemade mac 'n cheese tastes better, but for a night when there's no time to do anything but turn on a burner and wait, this is a great product. (Amy's frozen mac n' cheese is also a winner- but avoid frozen glutino at all costs, yech.)

Flavor Name: Cheddar Mac & CheeseSize: 6 Ounce (Pack of 12)
I don't have a gluten intolerance - just trying to cut back on the intake of wheat/gluten...and sugar, but that's another story;) so my body feels less bloated, unhealthy and lethargic due to wheat. With that said, I do know the differences in taste between wheat pastas, rice, quinoa, corn...etc. Personally, I have come to love the taste of non-wheat pastas over wheat, with the exception of corn flour, which isn't similar enough to wheat to fool my taste buds. Annie's does a fantastic job with this rice flour product, giving it a consistency and flavor akin to Kraft mac and cheese. What makes this better is the cheese, which tastes far yummier than any boxed mac & cheese I have ever had. Also, it's real cheese, with as few bizarre ingredients as possible.

For those who like to see ingredients, here is a comparison (and please note I am not a nutritionist - just writing a friendly review:):

Kraft Mac & Cheese:
Cheese sauce mix ingredients: whey (milk protein), milk protein concentrate, milk, milkfat and cheese culture, salt, sodium tripolyphosphate, sodium phosphate and calcium phosphate, Yellow 5 and Yellow 6, citric acid, lactic acid and enzymes.

Annie's Rice Pasta & Cheddar: cheddar cheese (cultured pasturized milk, salt, non-animal enzymes), whey, buttermilk, salt, cream, natural flavor, natural sodium phosphate, annatto extract for natural color.

*wiki annatto extract: Annatto coloring is produced from the reddish pericarp or pulp which surrounds the seed of the achiote (Bixa orellana L.). It is used in many natural cheeses (e.g., Cheddar, Red Leicester, Gouda (cheese) and Brie), margarine, butter, rice, smoked fish, and custard powder.

Annie's also has less sodium and sugars, which I am grateful for.

I usually let the noodles cook a bit longer, since rice noodles can be kind of tough. I add the two tablespoons of butter (or a bit more), a smidgen more than 1/4 cup milk, and about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. I put some salt and pepper on it and it is much better than the original mix and takes about the same amount of time.

I like the idea of adding a bit of spice to it as well and will try that next time.

This cannot be compared to the Kraft mix (and I loved that as much as anybody), but if you have to eat gluten free, this is a good substitute when you add some more flavor to it.

Flavor Name: Cheddar Mac & CheeseSize: 6 Ounce (Pack of 12)
At 33, I was hit with a sudden-onset (over the course of a month) wheat intolerance. I've always loved good food, have become an accomplished cook, and mostly cook from scratch. But...good ol' Kraft Mac & Cheese has been a childhood favourite that I've never stopped loving. When the wheat intolerance came along, I thought I'd never get to enjoy my occasional Mac fix again, but then I stumbled across this! It's received some criticism in other reviews here, but my guess they come mostly from people who don't have to eat wheat-free and either (a) aren't used to the slightly different flavour of the foods or (b) don't know how to prepare these foods properly (ie the cooking times/what to look for when preparing rice pasta), with the necessary tweaking. I thought this was delicious, worked well without a lot of doctoring, and was as close to my childhood favourite as I ever thought I'd get again. If you're like me, & thought you'd never get to enjoy that old Mac & Cheese standby, you'll love this!

I have reviewed several gluten free products and this is the best gluten free mac & cheese I have found. I found this at my local health food store, about the only place I shop now that I have to eat gluten free, and loved it. When I saw it on Amazon by the case (and $10 off to boot) I was excited. Annie's also makes frozen, microwaveable mac & cheese that is *very* good...it really just depends on whether you are used to the frozen/baked kind or the kind out of a box. It seems that Annie's makes a great line of products and I would try any of them.

Great product and I appreciate Amazon stocking quality, good tasting gluten free items like this.

My son developed gluten intolerance at 16. He knows what food is supposed to taste like. This is his favorite pasta. I'm very happy Amazon makes it easy for families with celiacs to find "normal" tasting food.

Flavor Name: Creamy CheddarSize: 11 Ounce (Pack of 6)
This mac and cheese is creamier than the regular gf mac and cheese. And I LOVE more cheese! Make sure that you cook the noodles until soft and tender, or they will be very chewy. The cheese for this mac and cheese is an actual cheese sauce, not a powder. Which saves some time if you are short on it. Overall, very good, and I even hope Annie's comes out with an even cheesier mac and cheese! :)
