There’s something about pirate talk that makes me giggle. I’m sure I’m not the only one. There’s even a Talk Like A Pirate Day in September! It’s all just good, silly fun, just like a cheesy joke. Speaking of cheesy, Pirate’s Booty has launched a new product – Pirate’s Booty Mac & Cheese. It’s made with organic wheat pasta and real cheese, and contains no trans fats, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Pirate’s Booty Mac & Cheese comes in four varieties. Three are aged white cheddar (shells, anchors and regular shaped noodles) and one is mild cheddar (regular shaped noodles). It’s super easy to make. You boil the pasta, then add the powdered cheese, milk and butter. I wondered if the powdered cheese would be clumpy like some, or taste gritty like some. I was very happy to see that it blended very nicely, leaving no chunks. The creamy noodles have a rich and cheesy flavor.
We enjoyed the Pirate’s Booty Mac & Cheese so much as a side that I decided to try incorporating it into a meal. Check back tomorrow for the recipe!
And speaking of cheesy jokes, Pirate’s Booty wants to hear yours. To celebrate the launch of Pirate’s Booty Mac & Cheese, they’re holding a fun contest!
