Let's face it. We ALL have a soft spot for pasta smothered in gooey cheese sauce. The good news is that we no longer have to fight the urge to swallow the bad stuff when those cravings kick in. There's a new blue box in town, folks! Next time you NEED mac & cheese, grab a box of FiberGourmet Light Macaroni & Cheese Dinner. It's amazingly AWESOME in the stats department -- a (prepared) serving of this stuff has 18g fiber (WOW!) and just 180 calories and 2.5g fat. Plus, it is SO good and satisfying, we doubt you'll miss that other kind. All you have to do is boil the noodles, add the sauce packet and a bit of 2% milk and, voila, it's a for-REAL cheesetastic meal! And it's super-creamy without any added butter. No artificial flavors or colors in this stuff either, kids -- so it won't turn your dinner that radioactive shade of orange you're used to seeing (why would you want it to?). Retire that old-school mac 'n goop for some new, fast, easy and fiber-packed mac! Click here to find a place near you that stocks FiberGourmet, or click here to order online. Yippee!

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
Sad and Blue
Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. It's the stuff most of us grew up on and think of as the standard in mac 'n cheese. But now that you've grown up a little (we hope), you no longer think 2 Twinkies and a Cherry Coke would make the best breakfast ever (and even if you do, you know better!). Same goes for this silly macaroni. What's the point of eating pasta with super-fattening cheese sauce made with butter? You really don't get much out of the basic Kraft Macaroni & Cheese except lotsa carbs, calories, and fat. Heck, before you mix anything in to make the sauce, you're already at 260 calories a serving. By the time you're done, you're up to over 400 calories and nearly 20g fat! AAAAACK! Not to mention a pathetic 1g fiber. We're using our good sense AND our sense of good taste to steer us in a new direction. We'll miss you, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, but we're moving on...
