13-PIBR-0052_PKG_MacandCheesePackaging_shellscopy-300Most kids love macaroni and cheese and parents are always on the lookout for a healthy version. Pirate’s Booty, which had been creating snack foods since 1987, has launched a macaroni and cheese line. The mixes are easy to prepare by simply cooking the pasta, adding milk and butter to the sauce mix, and stirring to combine. The finished dish it not as creamy and thick as some other mac and
cheese mixes or homemade recipes but the tastes are mild and kid-friendly. Our 4-year old taster like all the varieties declaring the Anchors & Cheese her favorite.

All the mixes are made with organic pasta and have no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

There are 4 varieties:

Mac & Cheese Aged White Cheddar, Shells & Cheese Aged White Cheddar, and Anchors & Cheese Aged White Cheddar all have 290 calories in a 1-cup serving, 6 grams of fat, 150 milligrams of calcium, and 600 milligrams of sodium.
Mac & Cheese Mild Cheddar have 280 calories in a 1-cup serving, 5 grams of fat, 150 milligrams of calcium, and 552 milligrams of sodium.
