I'm not exactly sure what constitutes as a "naturally flavored" mac and cheese variant, but I don't care. Let's see how she feels in my mouth!

|I judged too early, looks pretty damn tasty|
Eating this stuff, during the first few bites my hair was blown back on how much this tasted like a grilled cheese sandwich. Each bite was cheesy, thick, and absolutely great. As the bowl wore on, the grilled cheese flavor disappeared, and I was left with half a bowl of just regular Mac and Cheese. I should call up Ms. Crocker on the phone and tell her to ditch the "Natural Flavor" and go with some chemical that has staying power. Overall this was way better than I expected.
It took a total of 15 minutes to prep, which might be a downside for some, but it's hard for me to settle into an instant version of mac and cheese because it's never quite as good. It wasn't overly cheesy to make you sick, and wasn't so weak that you threw the bowl into the street screaming "TRAITOR". The only real downside to this was when you were biting into it and tasting a grilled cheese sandwich, you wanted the familiar crunch of the butter soaked, grilled bread to go along side of it. I think if I pick one of these up again, I'll definitely put some toast or something on the side to see if that completes the meal.
I'll give the Betty Crockers: Mac and Cheese Grilled Cheese Edition a
