Macaroni and cheese, made Annie’s way. 100% real mild cheese, no artificial flavors, synthetic colors, or preservatives — and certified organic to boot. A classic for the family!
Annie's Cheddar Mac (as we call it!) is our answer to all those chemically orange colored cheeses out there. We've taken our original Shells & White Cheddar and added a little color to it, naturally! Our totally natural cheese is colored with a plant extract called annatto. Annatto has been used in tropical American cultures for generations to color foods such as butter, cheese and mustard. The annatto tree grows 20 to 30 feet in height and when its seeds are stirred in water, they produce orange annatto dye, also called achiote, to color foods. Annie's Cheddar Macaroni and cheese is a great alternative for kids who need to have that "orange" cheese on their macaroni.
From the time of Annie's first mac & cheese product in 1989, a small-but-growing group of you who are wheat & gluten-intolerant have suggested we produce a gluten free macaroni and cheese. It may seem a gluten free mac & cheese has been a long time in coming! Now our Gluten Free Rice Pasta & Cheddar is one of our most popular products.
Introduced back in 1989, Annie's Shells & White Cheddar is our original and best selling product. Annie created Shells & Cheddar (as we call it here) in her kitchen when she realized there was no all-natural, white cheddar macaroni & cheese on the market. She came up with a totally delicious product that is made with real white cheddar cheese and organic shell shaped pasta.
