You can't call yourself a true Trader Joe's fan if you've never tried their mac and cheese bites. But in the event that you haven't, now is your chance. The grocery chain recently relaunched the ooey-gooey bites with several improvements, and although not really needed, it's much appreciated.

The relaunch really came about because the supplier could no longer produce them, so they had to find a new supplier. However, in doing so, they also took the time to really amp the little bites up. First, and most importantly, they added more cheese. The mac and cheese bites include their original blend of cheddar, Havarti, Swiss and gouda, but now also come with cream cheese, Monterey Jack and Pecorino Romano. 

Secondly, they updated the breading to a crispier, panko-style that really allows the mac and cheese the shine through. We all love a good, thick breading, but c'mon, there's a time and place. 

The Trader Joe's mac and cheese bites heat up in about 20 minutes and are great for snacking, late-night eats, lunch, parties — basically, you'll be happy no matter how or when you eat them. You can find them in the frozen aisle in 10-ounce boxes (about 10 bites to a box) for only $3.99.
