I applied through Mom’s Ambassador to try this product and review it with my mom group.   All thoughts and opinions are mine.

At Horizon we know how much you care about feeding your family because we’re parents, too.  That’s why we support the organic movement and keep our foods as wholesome as they are delicious.  You know Horizon from the dairy case, but now the family favorite brand has expanded to mac and snacks—all with the goodness of organic ingredients.  Now you can enjoy the organic goodness of Horizon in mac and cheese, sandwich crackers, apple crunchers, squeeze pouches and more.

I was excited to open this box and see what was included.  There were several boxes of mac and cheese in different varieties, a few coupons for free products, and a ceramic bowl and spoon.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the bowl and spoon but couldn’t wait to make the mac and cheese for the moms and kids in my group.

I tried to be different when it came to the sampling for the group and had toppings that could be added to the mac and cheese to make their own deluxe version.  There were bacon bits, chives, ketchup (it is a must for my son and husband), broccoli, and even some cubed ham.  It was no surprise that the kids did not want any of the toppings on their mac and cheese.  Of course, my son was the only one to add ketchup to his.  The moms added a variety of different items creating a ton of combinations.  I added some bacon to mine and it really added to the flavor.  When I was making the mac and cheese you could barely tell the difference between the white and cheddar.  Because there are no artificial colors there was nothing to give the cheddar that orange color we are so used too.

There weren’t any leftovers, but I did end up doing a little giveaway.  The most with the most creative combination that could get their child to try it would win a box of white and cheddar mac and cheese along with the ceramic bowl and spoon that were included.  Of course, my son would not even try anything with his mac and cheese, but a few of the kids really were adventurous.  We had the kids try bacon, broccoli, and chives, and another tried ham and chives.  I was impressed with both selections and all the moms agreed that the bacon, broccoli, chives combination was by far the best.  I was very happy trying the Horizon Organic Mac and Cheese with my friends and their children.  This is something that I think many will try again.
