Mac & Cheese To Go, Please!
Macaroni and cheese is the quintessential winter comfort food. Here are four great places you can get it quickly and on the go.
And the winner is...Mr. Mac's Macaroni and CheeseWe tried the Classic All American with cheddar cheese that tastes just like Mom used to make, only better (sorry, Mom). Creamy, cheesy, very buttery with that home-baked feel ready in 10-15 minutes. Many other varieties are available or create your own from their list of ingredients. $4.99 for a small, $6.99 medium or $11.99 family-size.
