About This Brand

The start of Annie’s Homegrown During the 1990s, Annie’s Homegrown got their start by selling their homemade mac and cheese to independently owned natural food shops and regional supermarkets in the New England area. Slowly but surely, the buzz around Annie’s food grew as they amassed a large following by word of mouth. The rise of Annie’s Homegrown Annie’s customers were so passionate, they collectively bought a small minority share of the company in the mid 90s.

Based on 17 Reviews

Always on hand

We always have a couple boxes of this mac and cheese in the cupboard. It's the perfect go to for a quick and easy dinner. We love it with freshly shredded cheddar on top, a dollop of sour cream and often, leftover shredded roast from earlier in the week.

The Best

Annie's makes great products, but the aged cheddar is my favorite.

- Molly

Powdered cheese

I really did not like this product. I should have realized powdered cheese would have tasted just like that. Little flavor and distasteful texture.

- Marcella


I love mac-n-cheese. I always wished someone would make a white cheddar version. Ever since I found Annies white cheddar mac-n- cheese I am in love with it.

- Mariana

macaroni and cheese

I love these products by Annie. I wish you carried some of the crackers that are under her name.

- Elaine

My kids like this kind of macaroni better than Kraft! And I feel just a little better feeding it to them

- Jennifer

- Hannah Kincaid

- Carlee

My whole family loves this! Add a little chopped up ham and turn it into a main dish. My 3 boys think it is a winner every time!

Best boxed M&C

If your kids (or college kids, or YOU0 love M&C out of a box, this is real food and has real food flavor. Since its an easy go to meal, we stock up, cant beat the price here, its twice as much in my local health food chain.

Mac and Cheese

Great, who doesn't like Mac and cheese?

Perfect For Quick Side Dishes!

I love this box mac and cheese. It's really easy to make, tastes great, and is very creamy! :D

- Kya

Cheaper at Target

Full price at Target is 1.64. Not a good deal here

- Thrive User

Love it!

Fantastic, love that I can still enjoy mac & cheese without all the additives

- amy

My kids love it!

Annie's Homegrown has so many great products. I've been buying the company's cheese snacks for awhile, and finally left Kraft behind to try this macaroni.

My kids have never eaten wheat pasta, but they can't even tell the difference with this mac and cheese. It tastes so good, soft and flavorful and the cheese doesn't have that aftertaste that tells you it's been through the chemical grinder. And at under $2 for a meal that stretches two days, Thrive knows how to give value for nutritious products.

- Ashley Johnson

Good Mac & Cheese

This is a delicious and rare treat for me. I love the taste of it, but even though it may be non-GMO and organic, it still isn't the most healthy thing for me. It's still very high in sodium, but at least this, over the non-organic main brands, has decent amounts of fiber and protein. It's still a treat, and I know it's healthier to make my own, but when I'm just short on time, this stuff is a delightful treat.

- Kara Ellein

Must Have!

If your family loves boxed mac-n-cheese, but you can't stomach putting unhealthy, trans fat filled foods on your table at night, this is the mac for you! It is so great! It is trans-fat free and uses organic and natural ingredients and has the best white cheddar flavor I have ever tasted. My family can't get enough and I feel great feeding it to them knowing it is a healthy option and certified organic.
