Food Review: Helen's Kitchen Mac & Cheese

Food Review: Helen's Kitchen Mac & Cheese

It's good to have a few entrées in your freezer for a quick and healthy meal. So while at the grocery store the other day, I decided to try the Mac & Cheese from Helen's Kitchen.

Want to know what it really looks like and see the nutritional info? Then


Is there some unwritten rule that frozen meals have to look drastically different then the photo on the box? That gorgeous picture shows eight pieces of broccoli and I ended up with a measly four. I was not impressed. The flavor was also a little too mild for my taste – overall it was rather bland. Texturewise, the cheese had a weird thick and lumpy consistency. Plus for the amount of sodium that was actually in this meal, it tasted like it was low sodium. The few bits of broccoli were good, a little chewy, but still tasted fresh. The best part were the little bits of tofu. They were firm and had a great salty and herby flavor. I did like that the ingredients were organic, and it was made with wheat pasta, real butter, and asiago and cheddar cheeses. I'd definitely be up for trying out other meals made by this company, but if I'm in the mood for a cheesy-pasta-veggie dish, I'd much rather eat Amy's Country Cheddar Bowl instead.
