In case you were wondering, there still exists no really good vegan mac and cheese. At least not the kind that comes from a box. When I was over at Cosmo's Online getting the previously mentioned white chocolate chips, I was thrown by the $10 minimum. Short on time but in desperate need of the wcc, I hurriedly decided to try some new mac and cheese, hoping that perhaps things have changed. Well, I just fixed it up, and I'm sad to report there has been no breakthrough in the vegan instant macaroni world. While this brand was the creamiest and looked pretty dang yummy (see above), there was just a weird sweetness I couldn't get past. I only was able to eat a quarter of it before I could go no further. And, trust me, getting me to stop eating is not easy, especially when I'm hungry. Still, if you want to give it a try, it's made by Leahey foods. My sources tell me they make some pretty banging soups, so I'll throw those in my virtual basket next time I need to make it to $10 at Cosmo's. Oh, who am I kidding - I'll just get more white chocolate chips. Those things are amazing.
Off to Calistoga for the Mustard, Mud, and Music Festival and I'll be gone all weekend. Fun drinking, noshing, and grooving shall ensue. A full report to follow.
