I’m not sure what it is, but I am addicted to Target. While I try to be a conscious consumer (I love shopping at the Farmer’s Markets, thrift stores, used record and book stores, etc.), something takes over me when I walk into the huge, gleaming Target store. I could be going to pick up a tube of toothpaste and deodorant and when I come to two hours later at the register, I’ve dropped $150 on things I really don’t need. Something tells me a few of our readers can relate!
Surprisingly, one item I had never purchased was any products from the Archer Farms line. I normally am so fascinated with the home wares and clothes; I don’t get over to the grocery aisles. So, here at we heart this, we decided a review and test taste was in order!
We picked up a number of varieties of the Archer Farms macaroni & cheese for our review team to sample. Archer Farms is Targets own line of food products and I must be incredibly slow because I just now made the connection – Target ~ Archer – see how they did that? Anyway, according to Target the line is “our highest quality made with the finest ingredients. (Target) promises you’ll love every little bit, bite and sip. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.”
Our review team will be by shortly to tell us which flavor they tested and give you their thoughts on the mac & cheese. In the meantime, what I most appreciated about this mac & cheese was the large variety of flavors (from kid friendly Classic Cheddar to the more adult Buffalo style, with blue cheese and spicy sauce) and that it is one-pot cooking. You just need to boil water, then add both the noodles and sauce and cook until thickened. No draining noodles and transferring to another bowl or back to the pot. Let me tell you, anything that cuts down my dishwashing gets the thumbs up from me!
Finally, I also liked that the back of the box offered a few suggestions to spice up the dish – either by adding veggies or protein or offering the best entrée to serve with the mac & cheeses. I experimented with some tvp crumbles in my creamy Tomato and I’ll let you know how it went in the comments.
Ok, peeps, let’s hear your thoughts on Archer Farms macaroni and cheese![ratings]
