    I love Mac and cheese and this was no exception, it was nice and creamy. I loved the fresh take bread crumbs on top. I will be making this again.

    Pretty pricey for mac and cheese. Fairly ordinary taste too. Might be a kid pleaser.

    Fantastic! I would not have thought to use Fresh Take for something that didn't require coating things, but this is genius.
