We’ve seen a lot of dairy-free mac and cheese products come and go over the years, but none quite like Upton’s Naturals Ch’eesy Mac. It seriously takes convenience to a new level. Each shelf-stable box contains packets of cooked noodles and premade sauce, so you can just heat and eat. No boiling water, no kitchen equipment, no ingredients to add – the box, a bowl, and a fork is all you need.
