Annie’s Cheddar Mac (as we call it!) is our answer to all those chemically orange colored cheeses out there. We’ve taken our original Shells and White Cheddar and added a little color to it, naturally! Our totally natural cheese is colored with a plant extract called annatto. Annatto has been used in tropical American cultures for generations to color foods such as butter, cheese and mustard. The annatto tree grows 20 to 30 feet in height and when its seeds are stirred in water, they produce orange annatto dye, also called achiote, to color foods. Annie’s Cheddar Macaroni and cheese is a great alternative for kids who need to have that “orange” cheese on their macaroni.
Introduced back in 1989, Annie’s Shells and White Cheddar is our original and best selling product. Annie created Shells and Cheddar (as we call it here) in her kitchen when she realized there was no all-natural, white cheddar macaroni and cheese on the market. She came up with a totally delicious product that is made with real white cheddar cheese and organic shell shaped pasta.
