Stouffer's Macaroni and Cheese

We tasted this because of a desire to have something to compare against. Are healthier Mac and Cheese products as good as or better than their full calorie, full fat siblings.

In this case, YES!

The best way to describe this product is Salt, Salt, Salt. That's about the only flavor that comes through. There's so much salty flavor that the other taste buds are overwhelmed. This coupled with a much higher amount of fat and saturated fat begs the question, "Why would anyone choose this over the Stouffer's Lean Cuisine?" I feel that this is because of the long standing misconception that healthier food can't taste as good as the original. Here's a great opportunity to prove that idea wrong. Buy the Lean Cuisine.

This product gets no forks. Yuck.
