Not actually a cheese sauce!
Flavorless! It's number one ingredient is whey, so that explains it. Hoosier Hill Farm Cheddar Cheez Powder tastes 1000 times better. It also seems to have thickeners in it that make it too thick.
I like it
I have had a can of this for about 6 months. I use this to make mac and cheese on a regular basis. I like that I have more control over what I'm cooking. This is just powdered cheese, no sugar added. I don't know if Kraft changed their recipe or something, but the mixes have a little sugar in them, which is just weird. You can't add enough salt to make that taste right. With the Augason cheese powder, you can get it the way you like. I also like to make a bigger batch and use better pasta than the thin junk that comes in the boxed mixes. Once you have made your own a few times, you will see that it's actually more convenient than having to buy little boxes constantly. It's one less thing on my grocery list. As for the powder mixing, I have found that you need to use hot water. At first I thought cold water would be better because that's what you need with corn starch, but nope. Use hot water and a whisk, and it will blend well in just a couple of seconds. Then quickly pour into your cooked noodles. Milk and butter are optional. I use 2 or three times as much liquid as they have on the instructions, because once mixed, the cheese sauce will thicken up, and it can get lumpy if you don't already have the liquid mixed in.
Very happy with product.
So far I have only used the product to make mac & cheese and in a recipe calling for cheese sauce. Both tasted great. I just wish it was for sale at the store and came in an eight ounce box instead of the huge can I ordered. I am seventy five years old and do not need anything with a 25 year shelf life. At my age I'm taking a chance when I buy green bananas.
You gets what you pays for...
I'm a supertaster, I suppose. This was really horrible. Definitely not cheesy, with an oddly bitter aftertaste and overwhelming nose of powdered milk. I hope I can get my refund for this nasty product. Better to buy Hoosier Hill cheese powder.
I don't know what the other reviewer is referring too, my can says "stir 1/3 cup cheese powder into 1 cup HOT WATER using a whisk. Continue stirring until smooth. Let stand 3-5 minutes, whisk again. Yields 4 one quarter cup servings." end quote. I've used this cheese blend for over a year, and it's excellent and sooo easy, and it only uses WATER. Mixing 1/3 of a cup and ending with a whole cup of cheese sauce is a deal if you ask me. It's excellent on broccoli, mac and cheese and even used as a dip for potato chips. I have never mixed it with milk or butter...
