A 12-oz box carries a suggested price of $5.49 but I received this courtesy of Three Bridges. It's good for about two good-sized bowl of mac & cheese.
It turned out rather well. It looks like they mixed some butter, water, and corn starch into the shredded cheddar, which made for a thick, smooth sauce with a very even consistency. Flavor-wise, the sauce was very creamy and suitably cheesy with a mild cheddar flavor. It didn't coagulate much at all when it cooled but also left little in the way of watery residue.
The bottom line is that Three Bridges makes an exemplary version of the packaged mac and cheese you might have eaten growing up as a kid and might be even easier to make. As for the kid test: My nephews gobbled the stuff up in no time at all.
