Mac & Chreese by Road's End Organics

An allergy product for those who miss Kraft Dinner

Here's the truth: occasionally, in my colourful past, I've eaten pure junk. One of the things I used to like (before I realized that gluten was causing me real problems) was Kraft Dinner. I hate to admit it, but it's true.

It's been a long time since I've eaten anything like pasta with cheese sauce; I've been dealing with allergies for at least 20 years. So, when a friend first told me about Mac & Chreese, an allergy product for those who can't eat cheese, I wasn't all that interested. After all, I'd survived for a long time without Kraft Dinner. Did I really need a substitute at this point?

But in order to give my son a chance to try this classic dish, I decided to give the product a shot. After all, some kinds of food are 'comfort food' and macaroni and cheese was definitely one of mine when I was growing up.

Mac & Chreese is not just an allergy product; it's also 100% vegan, and contains no animal products and no rennet. If you have a dairy allergy, this will definitely work for you. It's also completely gluten-free, because the pasta is made from rice. Finally, there's no soy in Mac & Chreese, so this product avoids three of the biggest potential allergens.

The sauce for the pasta is made from a combination of nutritional yeast, lentil flour, salt, onion powder and spices. Now, if that doesn't sound much like Kraft Dinner, that's because it certainly isn't! This allergy product is a tasty dish, but certainly nothing like real macaroni and cheese.

I have to say, I liked Mac & Chreese, but my 5-year-old son did not. I suspect that, unless your children are used to eating things that use a fair bit of spice, this dish won't work for them either. However, if you would like to eat an Alfredo-style pasta without having to deal with dairy, soy or gluten, this could be the allergy product you need!

In the end, even though it's not good for me…I think I still like Kraft Dinner better.
