Roth Ultimate Mac & Cheese shredded cheese is “ultimate” for a reason. The combination of Grand Cru, Roth’s original cheese, with Havarti and Sharp Cheddar cheese creates a blend that is creamy and flavorful. You can find the cheese in the deli section of your local grocery store and add it to your favorite meal for a fun twist. Roth occasionally has a coupon/promotional offers on their site. I found one for $1.00 off of the Ultimate blends recently, so check it out! You can also follow Roth on Facebook, Twitter, PinterestInstagram and YouTube for more meal planning inspiration.
