Kraft Velveeta Rotini & Cheese Broccoli Cup Review

Velveeta Rotini & Cheese Broccoli CupIf you have ever tried to whip up a single serve packet of Annie's Microwavable Mac & Cheese, you would have run into a powdery cheese packet that just looks like trouble. The end result is a small pile of macaroni dotted with salty clumps of powdered cheese. However, living in a dorm with only a microwave at hand will not stand in my way of enjoying a comforting bowl of macaroni and cheese from time to time. Therefore, I decided to branch out and make a $0.98 experiment with a Kraft Velveeta Rotini & Cheese- Broccoli Cup.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup
Calories: 220
Total Fat: 8 grams, 12%
Saturated Fat: 3 grams, 15%
Sodium: 640 mg, 27%
Carbohydrates: 24 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugar: 3 grams
Protein: 8 grams

Open up this yellow cup and you will not find any powdered cheese packets (phew). What you will find is the traditional pouch of creamy Velveeta cheese along with a laughable packet of "broccoli" that is simply green specs and a handful of spiral shaped pasta. This microwaveable bowl doesn't have a huge portion, but it would be unrealistic to expect more for something that's less then $1.00, so bulk up with some real broccoli and maybe a chopped up Sunshine Burger, and you have got yourself a satisfying and completely delicious comfort meal, in no time.

Each single serve cup provides 220 calories, 8 grams of total fat & 3 grams of saturated fat, almost 30% of the daily value for sodium, 1 gram of fiber and 8 grams of protein.

As I mentioned, add in some frozen veggies to up the fiber factor and a Sunshine Burger to elevate the amount of protein and you are left with a delightfully satisfying meal - the mix-ins that you could incorporate into this little cup are as expansive as your imagination!

Surprisingly, Kraft Velveeta Rotini & Cheese Broccoli Cups, make a great base for a quick, filling and dare I say, nutritious dinner.
