Back to Nature, Organic Macaroni & Cheese Dinner, 6 oz (170 g)5 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

It's 1960, Pasadena, California, and our first product is created in the back of a small healthy food store: a delicious, naturally low-fat granola. Soon it was our most popular item, and people across the state were asking for more. We responded by developing our Back to Nature family. Over the years, our business has grown but our mission has remained the same: Give people truly flavorful food made with wholesome ingredients.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Back in the states, it was my favorite mac and cheese. Comparing with other brands, it is less salty. The problem is Back to Nature brand is more expensive than non-organic brands. But I am willing to pay. I am not living in the states at the moment, so I couldn't find mac and chesse dinner. So I am gonna reorder this soon.
Organic macaroni and cheese is one of my occasional junk foods. I generally like all of Back to Nature's products and buy many of them. I found that Annie's Organic mac & cheese box mix had the more "junky" and "orange" flavor that I crave than this product, though. Caveat: I made it with skim milk and no butter.
