    The taste of this is just as good as any boxed or frozen mac n cheese according to my kids. However, their mother did not use very hot water and the macaroni was kind of crunchy. Use HOT water if you want soft pasta--which you do.

    Mac & cheese is the ultimate comfort food. And MH delivers with a thick, cheesy sauce that doesn't clump. (The noodles do need more time to reconstitute than the directions indicate.) Eat it plain, or add a pouch of Spam (or can of tuna/chicken)and some freeze-dried mixed veggies for a colorful meal that will stick to your ribs.

    Taste was good and this was very quick and easy to make. My only "complaint" if you could call it that is there is too much cheese and not enough macaroni, when reconstituted as directed. It was like eating a big bowl of cheese, searching for the mac! Not sure if the solution could be using less water to reconstitute or if MH could add more macaroni?

    *From The Ready Store: TJ we recommend adding more water if it is too thick. As for the ratio of noodles to cheese sauce we can't change that on our end but you could always add some freeze dried noodles in when you are reconstituting the meal.

    Followed the directions to a tee, but after 9 minutes the macaroni was very hard and uneatable. The next day I tried another pouch and gave it 22 minutes, this time it was eatable but Al dente. I figure 25 minutes will do the trick. But their is too much sauce and not enough macaroni.Still it is a good product. You just have to experiment with it.

    Mac and cheese isn't all that hard to store or cook on the trail. It's already lightweight, I feel like mountain house just wanted to add more variety, without thinking that's it's a little impractical for mac and cheese.
