I love love Velveeta Shells and Cheese. Don't get me wrong Macaroni and cheese is good but: Velveeta has the liquid cheese instead of the powder and just makes the cheese so smooth. I buy it a lot of places but; mostly at Walmart. If I need a side dish especially easy to prepare it is my go to. Also kids love it! Every time my nephews come to my house Shells and Cheese is the first thing they want. I especially love how the cheese gets tucked into the scoop part of the shell. I will always buy this first. It isn't a strong cheese taste or weak cheese taste, it's just right.

I was raised on homemade macaroni with Velveeta cheese, and that is ingrained in my soul. My grandmother made it a couple days a week, and I grew up living next door so it worked out perfectly for me! When I became an adult myself, responsible for my own food I bought Velveeta Shells & Cheese. Simple, cook the noodles and add the cheese packet. But I have always added milk, butter and a dash of pepper to make it more closely resemble what grandmaw made.

Valveeta shells original are the best. I love the thick texture of the
shell and how the thick creamy velveeta cheese is all over and inside
the shells . This is a major comfort food for me and my family. You can
eat it as a meal or a side and is very satisfying to your taste buds and
your hunger either way. I find that it's a good price for my family so
worth it. I also love how easy and convient it is to use. All you have
to do is boil water until shells are done drain, then cut open the
cheese pitch squeeze it in the pan of shells and mix!!so convient, easy
to use, taste great! One of the best comfort foods and my families go

Let me tell you, I love me some Mac & Cheese. Generally, since I have a larger family I usually tend to get non-brand products or Craft. However, I do splurge sometimes and treat myself to some Velveeta shells! You really don't know what you're missing once you try this! The creamy cheesy goes perfectly with the shells. I am rating this a 4 because the boxes are a bit smaller and you don't get as much but I definitely recommend, I even like to get fancy and add broccoli sometimes! :)

My all time favorite boxed Mac and cheese is the shells. They are so cheesy and delicious so much better than the Kraft you have to add butter and milk but with the shells all you have to add is the cheese that comes with it and it tastes so much better than any other boxed Mac and cheese I have ever tasted I highly recommend this Mac and cheese

This is the ONLY Mac & Cheese that I buy, if you like Mac & Cheese you can’t go wrong here. I’ll eat a box solely as my unhealthy dinner on occasions. I like mine extra cheesy & creamy so I usually leave out some of the shells & add some butter (to make it extra healthy & creamy lol) to cheese. Being somewhat lactose sensitive I usually pay the price when I do this, but it’s so worth it on occasions.

My family and I used to love having Velveta once a month or so as a side dish with our meals. Then we had a bad run where several boxes in a row tasted gross and rotted. The box is expensive compared to other brands at 3.99 a box and it takes 2 boxes for a full family. After you take a bit of rotten Velveta you will never attempt it again.

I like the taste of the cheese sauce in the macaroni and cheese. What I don't like is the noodles.  You have to eat a big mouth full to even feel like even have anything in your mouth.  When you eat just one, it is so thin is hard to even taste it.  I have bought this several times and I always have the same opinion about it.

The most delicious mac and cheese of them all!  Creamy, cheesy and full of flavor. Set up is super easy. Boil the pasta, add the creamy pre-made cheese and... TA-Da you have your bowl of perfect mac and cheese.  Only downside: not quite sure how "bad," this product is for one's health.....

What can be said about this wonderfully cheesy dinner table staple that hasn’t already been said? The easiest to make and best tasting mac & cheese on the shelf! Every trip home from the store with a couple boxes of this in the trunk is always met with smiles and anticipation to get home and start making dinner with the tastiest side ever.
