Country of Origin: USA
Volume: 1 cup ≈ 0.27 pounds / 1 pound ≈ approx. 2.7 cups
Shelf Life: 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 when stored at room temperature or below in an air-tight container out of direct light, it easily lasts 2 to 3 years.
Frequently Asked Question: Is this the same cheese powder that is in the blue box of macaroni and cheese and the macaroni and cheese topping in the 3 oz. blue canister?
Answer: Not exactly, but it's pretty darn close.
We use this to make our: Cheddar Beer Dip Mix, Char-Grilled Cheeseburger Dip Mix, Irish Pub Spread Mix, Loaded Baked Potato Dip Mix, Smoked Cheddar Jalapeno Dip Mix, Cheddar Jalapeno Popcorn Seasoning, Char-Grilled Cheeseburger Popcorn Seasoning, and Loaded Baked Potato Popcorn Seasoning.
