Trader Joe’s – Truffle Mac & Cheese – Food Review

Have a handkerchief ready to catch the drool starting to form at the edge of the mouth about halfway through the cooking time as the earthy aromas start to waff out of the microwave. This is one grown-up Mac & Cheese.

Five different cheeses and truffle extract give this a very deep earthy wonderful flavor.  All the preceding adhere to short spiral shaped macaroni. This is decidedly different from the kid’s $1 a box glow-in-the-dark stuff that cooks up on the stove.

Trader Joe's, truffle mac & cheese, review, price, calories, nutritionAt $3.49 a frozen box, this might seem a little pricey.  And it is.  But consider what it would cost to make this yourself.  Just the Gouda, white Cheddar, Asiago, Parmesan and Romano alone would probably use up all that $3.49. One 290 calorie serving of this is also pretty filling and satisfying.  A little goes a long way as a side to some lighter fare.

Price $3.49 per 12 ounce box

Calories 290 per serving (2 servings per box)

      Since truffle extract was the very last ingredient, I’m not sure how much truffle was actually in there. But still yummy! 😋

    I loved that mac and cheese, but I always find it hard to stop at one serving since there are two in the box.

      I shared. Otherwise the second serving would’ve disappeared the same way as the first. In fact, it’s a good thing I didn’t have a second box in the freezer. 😋
