Better than grocery store price, far better tasting than, the big K name brand.

I'm a Vine reviewer but this is not a Vine review, it's a purchase. I've read somewhere many reasons why stuff tastes so bland that used to be good. Pasta marinara sauces, (bland tomatoes because of genetic culturing), cheese blends like Chee W...., that removed all the cheese years ago and original inventor couldn't believe how bad it has become. There are many things that seem to change over time, and Mac and Cheese is one. I used to love the packages with the cheese powder you mixed with butter to make the sauce. Later they came out with an instant that was awful, so bad I wrote big K about it, and they sent me coupons for more. I wrote other food companies with good suggestions, but most were ignored. I once wrote to change that instant stuffing mix back to two packets and separate the breadcrumbs. Some of us want to lower our salt, and sometimes use the spices for other reasons, but sadly ignored.
Thats why it was so surprising to find Cracker Barrel Mac and cheese such a good product. Tasty, brings back what big K had years ago, but today is bland city. They make various cheese types, all are pretty good. They even made one with real crumble bacon, I can't seem to find anymore. I originally got the stuff at one of those surplus freight stores, but it's sold at popular grocery chains, and I think as people discover the taste, it will be come even more popular. Easy to make just like most packaged Mac and Cheese. I think the macaroni is bigger than big K's and still cooks a perfect el dente. I heat the foil packet of cheese in the water to liquify it then remove beforee adding the macaroni to the boil. Grocery lists this at about five bucks a box, and has occasional sales at near the Amazon price, so with free shipping you can't do much better, too bad I couldn't find the bacon bits version it was great. Recommended.
