Why Oprah Is Probably A Fan Of Noodles & Company's Truff Mac

Oprah Winfrey's "Favorite Things" list is pretty much the Bible of gift giving. If the item is on Oprah's list, chances are your friends and family are going to love receiving it. That's why when we saw she included TRUFF's white truffle infused hot sauce on her 2019 list, and TRUFF's original black truffle hot sauce on her 2018 list — which Oprah's partner Stedman Graham apparently called "really delicious" (via Oprah Daily) — we figured the media mogul might be a fan of Noodles & Company's TRUFF Mac. The dish debuted on the quick service restaurant's menu in November 2021, per Chew Boom

Oprah is a true fan of this hot sauce. Per Oprah Daily, the talk show host shared in her December 2019 issue of O, the Oprah Magazine that the hot sauce's presentation is on point and its fiery umami will make your taste buds tingle. "The packaging is cool, the hot sauce is sublime!" she wrote, adding that "Even when somebody has everything – they don't have Truff." However, it is how she suggests you use this hot sauce that makes us think she is probably a fan of Noodle & Company's Truff Mac. 

Oprah personally told the makers it's her favorite

According to Oprah Daily, Oprah loves TRUFF's Hot Sauces so much she told the world to "Put it on everything." Which means this hot sauce on mac and cheese is definitely a great idea, right? In a press release, Noodles & Company describes TRUFF Mac as a combo of Noodles & Company's family favorite Wisconsin Mac & Cheese with a "decadent drizzle of TRUFF's Signature Black Truffle Hot Sauce," which gets its flavor from "an ultra-unique blend of ripe chili peppers, organic agave nectar, real black truffle and savory spices." 

Nick Guillen, TRUFF's Co-Founder and Co-CEO, explained why they decided to partner with Noodles & Company, saying, "Our goal with TRUFF was to create a hot sauce so unique that it would elevate any dining experience. With Noodles & Company, we had the opportunity to reinvent a dish as classic and popular as their Wisconsin Mac & Cheese." 

If you're hoping to see what this sauce is all about and how it pairs with mac and cheese, you may want to scoot on over to Noodles & Company ASAP because it is only available for a limited time. But if you miss your window of opportunity, grab a page from Oprah's "Favorite Things" list and buy a bottle of this hot sauce as a gift for yourself — then you can use it on mac and cheese whenever you want.
