We found a Mac & Cheese at Target that’s actually GOOD for you!🥣

For a limited time, hurry over to your local Target where you can score Goodles Mac & Cheese for only $2.79 (regularly $3.39)! Note that these are not on sale for online orders shipped to your home but you can score the sale price if you choose order pickup or same day delivery.

Goodles Mac & Cheese is not your everyday boxed mac & cheese! As they like to say, they took the noodles and made them “gooder” by adding 14g of protein, 7g of fiber with prebiotics, and 21 nutrients from plants. Plus, the cheese is made from real cheese, there are no artificial flavors or preservatives and it’s low GI too!

It is available in 9 yummy flavors including a more traditional Cheddy Mac, flavorful Twist My Parm with parmesan cheese, Smokey Dokey with slightly smoked gouda, and Hey, Hey Elote which is street corn mac with cotija cheese and more! There’s also a Vegan is Believin’ option that’s made with plant-based cheddar cheese!

If you have picky kiddos who love their mac & cheese but want to offer them an option that’s healthier and more nutritious, then you’ll absolutely want to give Goodles Mac & Cheese a try!

But how does it taste?

Now, you’re probably wondering if a healthier mac & cheese like this really tastes GOOD or not.  We can confirm that, yes – it does!

Our own Hip Sidekick Lina and her daughter decided to give Goodles Mac & Cheese a try and here’s what she had to share…

“I saw folks talking about this item on a Costco social media page and became intrigued! With 14g of protein per serving, this mac and cheese has some impressive nutritional values compared to the average option. I grabbed one at Target to try the taste and was honestly impressed! Wow, the texture of the pasta is tender and not chewy. The taste is rich and intensely cheesy. It’s really GOOD.

My teen is a tough critic when it comes to mac and cheese and she said it tastes better than the blue box kind. We look forward to trying the other flavors! Highly recommend.”

Have you heard of or tried Goodles?

If mac & cheese is a staple food in your house (like it is in mine), this more healthy option from Goodles might soon become your favorite too!

Goodles also offers pasta options as well that have similar healthier ingredients with 10g of protein if you want to make your pasta dishes “gooder” too!

    Is this the one that Gal Gadot help create? I’m thinking it is(?)

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Denise! I ran across this Forbes article that shares about Gal Gadot and the company! 🤗 Very cool!

      • Denise Faulkner

        Great!! I was hoping this was her brand!! So glad to know I can just go pick up a box at target and finally try them now! Thank you for all of your hard work in letting us know where all the good stuff and good deals are! 😊

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

          Aww, you’re very welcome, Diane! 💞 Hoping you love it too! I’ll be grabbing a box soon to try out as well – definitely more convenient knowing they’re available at Target. 🤗

    Lina has never let me down with a recipe or food recommendation so definitely giving this a try!

    • Lina

      Oh yay! Let us know your thoughts KB after trying! Yum.

  3. Helen

    We wanted to like it because of the protein etc and it was delicious BUT it gave us upset tummies 😬 not sure which ingredient and we even tried a second flavor to see and still had issue.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry to hear about the digestive issues when trying these out, Helen. Thanks for letting us know how about your experience. ❤️

  4. Lisa

    This sounds like an option for my kids. Mac and cheese with protein could be a win. I will not be doing this for weight loss/weight control. Pasta is a really tricky one for weight loss. I’d rather do the whole food alternatives.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for letting us know how you’ll be trying out and enjoying this mac & cheese, Lisa. Hoping your kiddos enjoy! 🧀
