This is some mac and cheese. If your family eats a lot of mac and cheese, buying in bulk is a great idea. Sure, Annie's is owned by General Mills but the word "organic" written jauntily on the front makes me feel like mother-of-the-year and not just someone who feeds her kids food from a box several nights a week. Personally, I think the blue box variety in this variety pack is hella bland, but my kids are half Canadian so they think it tastes great. My son likes that that one is "tubes" - the others are shells. Sometimes I jazz mine up with a little HP sauce or Sriracha, and when my husband makes it he'll add broccoli "for health" but I think that does a disservice to both the broccoli *and* the mac and cheese so that's a thumbs down for me. The way I see it, this variety pack offers twelve chances to just eat, or go positively MENTAL with culinary creativity. You do you.
