Food News: Three Bridges Launches First-Ever Refrigerated Mac & Cheese Kit



Traditional Boxed Mac and Cheese Bites The Dust with New Innovation Made From Fresher, Better Ingredients


BENICIA, Calif., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's time to trade in your blue box of mac and mystery cheese dust for some real food—thanks to the launch of the industry's first-ever refrigerated mac & cheese kit. Created by Three Bridges, the leading maker of fresh, better-for-you pastas and sauces, America's favorite comfort food is finally getting a much-needed upgrade. The perfect solution for time-crunched families who want to serve up an honest meal in just 3 minutes, Three Bridges' new Creamy Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese Kit is made with clean and simple ingredients, including fresh-shredded cheddar cheese.

"In our generation of fresher, cleaner eating, we questioned why it's still appropriate to make cheese sauce from a processed cheese powder, even if it's for something as iconic American as mac and cheese," said Ryan Tu, president and CEO of Three Bridges. "We deeply connected with First Lady Michelle Obama when she stated that 'cheese dust is not food.' Real food should be made from real ingredients. We have to do better for the health of our families by having better convenient options than traditional processed food."


A growing concern around processed foods being the primary cause of childhood obesity in America makes Three Bridges a timely solution for parents who care about the quality of foods they're feeding their families. Unlike conventional boxed mac and cheese, which is made from powdered cheese flavoring or artificial processed cheese sauces, Three Bridges Creamy Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese Kit has significantly lower sodium levels per serving and contains zero preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. No added fillers or mystery foods here—just high-quality ingredients, including fresh rBST-free cheddar cheese and premium freshly cooked elbow macaroni.

Additionally, like with all their products, Three Bridges takes the chore out of cooking by empowering anyone to make this delicious dish in minutes. While other store-bought mac and cheese can take up to 15 minutes to cook, Three Bridges Creamy Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese Kit takes just 3 minutes. No microwave or boiling water required – simply add milk to the provided ingredients over stovetop for a perfectly creamy and quick meal.

The new Creamy Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese Meal Kit (SRP $5.49) joins Three Bridges' existing line of refrigerated pastas and sauces, and will soon be available at major grocers nationwide, including Super Target stores. For more information or to locate a store near you, visit www.ThreeBridges.com.

Curious Combo: Mac & Cheese, Ravioli

Pasta-filled pasta is the latest food innovation sold under Wegmans’ Food You Feel Good About private label. Frozen Mac & Cheese Ravioli with Creamy Cheddar Cheese filling is the brainchild of Wegmans Italian buyer turned product developer Dan Mezzoprete, who set out to combine two comfort foods.

“He knew that kids loved their boxed Mac and Cheese, but also had a strong hunch that there are a lot of adults who ‘secretly’ enjoy it. So with that in mind, why not marry it to another favorite, a ravioli,” wrote Mary Ellen Burris, senior vice president of consumer affairs, in a Fresh Stories blog post.

Mezzoprete had trouble getting internal buy-in until Wegmans President Colleen Wegman suggested he make it a Food You Feel Good About Food with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Mac & Cheese Ravioli is filled with a blend of ricotta, American and cheddar cheeses, has 15 grams of protein and 25% of the daily value for calcium.
