Frequently Asked Question:
Is this the same cheese powder that is in the "blue box" of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and the Macaroni and Cheese Topping in the 3 oz. canister?
Answer:
Not exactly. However, Kraft lists on a sample container that this product has a "flavor typical of Mac & Cheese Bx Dinner." Kraft manufactures many variations of its cheese powders, but this is the closest we can get. Compare ingredient lists below.

Frequently Asked Question: What is the shelf life of this product?
Answer:
The manufacturer lists a "Best By" date of 1 year from date of manufacturing, so once the product reaches you, it's about 10 months. However, we've found that if you store it in an airtight container, out of direct sunlight, and at room temperature or below, it easily lasts 2 to 3 years.

Contains milk. Packaged in a facility that also packages wheat, milk, soy, egg, sesame, peanuts, and tree nuts.


We use this in our Cheddar Beer Dip Mix, Smoked Cheddar Jalapeno Dip Mix, Loaded Baked Potato Popcorn Seasoning, and Cheddar Jalapeno Popcorn Seasoning.
