– “Au Bon Pain Mac & Cheese” –
Self serve. It’s even more fast food than Noodles. You literally ladle it into a paper cup, so presentation is a pretty hefty no-go.
Yikes. The aftertaste is fairly cringe worthy, I would describe it as having an essence of chemicals. My dog might pass it up; it eats garbage, FYI.
Creaminess is the one thing this mac definitely has. However, it is borderline watery at times, and others it is clumpy and dry. It’s truly a gamble.
The cheese for this mac is processed to the point that it is immensely noticeable. Kraft is pretty processed, Velveeta is pretty damn processed, but this nasty cheese takes the chemically-enhanced cake. The best example to give in the quality department would be that the cheese separates if untouched for a while; you’ll come back to it and it’ll be part oil, part clumpy cheese.
In pure honesty, if I hadn’t eaten in three days I would probably only eat this mac and cheese reluctantly.
