The Best Store-Bought Mac & Cheeses: 32K Reviews

Based on 31,813 Influenster Reviews

Warm, gooey, cheesy goodness. Possibly the greatest comfort food of all time, macaroni and cheese is one of those meals you prepare when you're homesick, nostalgic, hungover, or just really hungry for something tasty. WE LOVE MAC & CHEESE!

Have it as a side, as an entrée, or as a dessert if you're so inclined. It's the best and we won't judge. In fact, pour us a heaping bowl.

Influensters love mac and cheese just as much as we do, which is why they've left more than 30K reviews on which store-bought mac and cheeses are the best. Check out this list and let us know if you agree.

If you're gonna make Macaroni and Cheese from a box, this is the way to go. Velveeta Shells and Cheese can be prepared very quickly and has a very creamy taste. That's because you're actually using the cheese sauce Velveeta is famous for and not that powdered stuff common with other boxes. You will only need to boil water, put the shells in and cook until tender. Once you drain the water, squeeze in the cheese and (I recommend) let it set for a few minutes, so the cheese can set. I also enhance the flavor a bit by adding some sharp cheese. I can't make enough for my preschooler. We all love it! ...read more

This macaroni and cheese is a favorite in our house. My daughter and my husband eat much more than just one serving size a piece, and I allow room in my allotted calories for the day to indulge in a single serving occasionally. The cheese is so flavorful and mixes in well. It isn't too tangy as some brands have seemed; nor is it an overwhelmingly strong. Just right for dinner with some ground beef or other protein thrown in, or for an easily reheatable snack for my daughter to take to dance. Creamy goodness! ...read more

Let me wipe the drool off of my chin, right quick! This is sooooooooo good! I typically am not a fan of any microwaveable foods, but this is an exception. My kids all love it and even my 5 year old has learned how to make it himself. We eat this as a snack, for lunch, paired with chicken strips for dinner, and on the way to gymnastics. It's a favorite of everyone in my house, and thats saying alot, since there are 9 of us :) ...read more

There are few things more decadent than sitting curled up in front of the TV on a cold day with a bowl of white cheddar Mac & Cheese. White cheddar is hard to get right, it sometimes tastes too artificial but this brand is amazing. I found it in university (typical) but it's still my go to comfort food! Tastes as close to the real thing as you can get from a box, would highly recommend for Mac&Cheese lovers ...read more

By far my favorite microwaveable Mac & cheese. The noodles are never dry or crunchy and the cheese sauce tastes just like what you would've eaten at home as a kid. I love to heat it up a little longer than instructed to get a slight crust around the ended. ...read more

As I've gotten older Mac N Cheese doesn't always appeal to my taste buds anymore, however after trying different kinds, the Simply Balanced tastes great and very creamy. I feel good about enjoying this once in awhile as well knowing that it's ingredients are better for you than most other pasta products. ...read more

I am a Mac and cheese type of girl! When going out to restaurants and ordering Mac and cheese either as a meal or as a side dish sometimes it can taste very artificial. I'm not much for trying white cheese I'm usually accustomed to yellow but when I first went to Panera bread years ago and tried their Mac and cheese I was skeptical after the first bite I was IN LOVE. It taste like something you would make at home. I will never look at any other Mac and cheese the same again after this one. I would definitely recommended to anyone who's a Mac and cheese fan or for anyone who's never had Panera! ...read more

I decided to try this because I am a vegetarian and not all boxed macaroni and cheese contain non-animal rennet but this one did! So I thought I would give it a try. Instead of eating it plain, I added some milk and butter like the directions, but then I blended some Ritz crackers with some melted butter to create a crust that I put in a muffin tin and then added the cooked macaroni and cheese in the tin and sprinkled a little bit of shredded mozzarella to the top and baked them in the oven to make little macaroni and cheese cups. They turned out really tasty. This boxed Mac & cheese is delicious plain or transformed into something else ...read more

A self-professed Mac & cheese addict & connoisseur, I am really picky when it comes to frozen mac & cheese dinners. This is better than Lean Cuisine, Banquets, & any other brand I've seen at the grocery store! It is literally to die for, and so filling! It tastes completely homemade, cooks perfectly in the time allotted, & is consistently delicious every time I make it. I probably have it for lunch once a week at work! Try it & you'll love it, I promise!
