Horribly sweet and a stranger to cheese
I can generally find something to like about most foods, and I realise tinned versions are never going to be the same as fresh or frozen. That's okay, because they're usually tasty in their own right. For example, I don't expect spaghetti hoops to be like pasta cooked from scratch, because their place is on hot buttered toast, where they're perfect and "proper" spaghetti wouldn't be. I used to feel the same about tinned macaroni cheese, but this is absolutely vile. It's actually sweet, not just lacking in cheese flavour. The last time I tasted anything like this was a vegan cheese sauce mix, but at least that had the excuse of not being allowed any actual cheese in it. The cheese content in this appears to be mostly soft cheese, and there's more sugar and mustard in it than cheese powder, which is a long way down the ingredients list. Out of morbid curiosity, I checked the ingredients for what I'll call the brand leader. Reviewers seem to hate that as well, but it does have Cheddar cheese near the top of the list and sugar near the bottom. I'm not an anti-sugar zealot, and sugar (not sweetener, please) improves lots of savoury recipes. I just don't want sweetness to be the dominant flavour. I want macaroni cheese to taste of a hard cheese, even if the flavour's come out of a test tube. This is an awful recipe, and cheapness isn't an excuse for it.
The most disgusting thing I've ever tasted!
Avoid at all costs
Just awful, nothing more to say.
Awful Such a horrible taste total waste of money.
Worst thing I ate in 2020
This is probably one of the worst things I've eaten in 2020. I have very low food standards (I will eat most things without fuss) and I'm happy just eating plain pasta with grated cheese, but my parents gave me a tin of this so thought I'd give it a go instead of wasting it. First thought on opening the tin was that the factory had made a mistake and used custard instead of the cheese sauce. It looked exactly like tinned custard. Then I cooked it, and it tasted awful. The sauce had absolutely zero flavour. Well it had a sort of saltiness to it, but no cheese flavour, I wouldn't have been able to identify what sauce it was if I hadn't have seen the tin myself. The macaroni was terrible as well, it was like a soft mush that I wouldn't classify as being pasta. Had two mouthfuls and couldn't stomach any more. I hate throwing out food but had no choice with this. I find it hard to believe anyone would actually have eaten this when they were coming up with the recipe and decided it was good enough to sell!
Got this because heinz wasn’t available. Absolutely awful. Rubbery and not cheesy tasty. Avoid.
There was absolutely no taste or flavour in this product. I even tried adding some cheese but this this not help. This is not a product I would purchase again or recommend to others.
Custard with Pasta...!
This was awful. It was like someone at the factory had mixed up the custard powder and the cheese sauce powder. Very sweet, no cheese or savoury flavour at all. It literally was like custard with very soft pasta stirred into it. Completely weird taste, texture, everything.
A very odd artificial taste and what I would describe as nutty flavour , also smells very odd. Sauce is very thin. I wouldn’t recommend.
Good quality. Much nicer than top name brands. Wel
