Daiya Cheezy Mac Review!!

Yay! It’s a Daiya Cheezy Mac review! Okay, so obviously I have failed in my plan to go McDougall. There’s always tomorrow, right? RIGHT?!

Okay, here’s what the box looks like:
Daiya Cheez

Oh my goodness I can not tell you how excited we were to try this. Now I have never claimed to be a good cook – in fact let me be the first to tell you that I am TERRIBLE. So when we make “mac and cheese” it goes something like this…
1. Boil the noodles.
2. Drain the noodles 3/4 but leave some water.
3. Dump in Daiya shredded chedder. THE WHOLE PACKAGE.
4. Cut a brick of Daiya Havarti in thirds and add 1/3 to the pot.
5. Stir.
6. Let sit for five minutes to melt.
7. Stir again and serve.

Not to mention, the cost of doing it that way. Noodles are really cheap, but the bag of Daiya shreds is over $5 and so is the Havarti block. This was much cheaper.

Okay, first impressions:
Daiya Cheez Impressions

I was happy to see that the cheeze packet was so big! But.. but.. where’s the rest of the noodles? Really, that’s it? I read the back quick and it said it serves three. Uh oh, there’s four of us! Seriously, the noodle packet is small. So I just added regular old elbow noodles from our own stash. Okay, not OLD.. that sounded bad!

Good food, crappy pic

Sorry this picture sucks. But I was too busy eating to take a new one! This mac and cheeze got three thumbs up from the kids and a half thumb rating from me (before I added ketchup and hot sauce and pepper). Overall, it was a success and I recommend it on those quick nights when you just don’t have time and kids are screaming and you all need some comfort food.
