Today's Frozen Meal: Kashi Sweet and Sour Chicken
Monday, 2010 March 1 - 1:06 pm
"Chicken Breast with Sweet & Sour Sauce; Roasted Green Beans & Yellow Peppers with Edamame; Kashi 7 Whole Grains & Sesame Pilaf."

Box

Meal

This is the second part of the Sweet & Sour Chicken shootout.

Taste: Unlike the Healthy Choice rendition of sweet and sour chicken, this one tastes more like a home-made meal than a restaurant meal. That's good and bad: it's good in that the flavors are not as overpoweringly artificial, but it's bad in that it doesn't really taste like sweet and sour chicken should. It tastes like it has a bunch of soy sauce in it (though it doesn't, according to the ingredients) and it lacks the tangy sourness that you'd expect. It's not bad, but somewhat disappointing. Score: 2.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Good numbers all around. In the vitamin category, I wish they'd post numbers for their B-vitamins. It's got 80% of the RDA for Vitamin C, but I can't tell if it's got anything else. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and give full marks here. Score: 3.0/3.0

Packaging: Typical Kashi; peel-and-stir, but with recycled packaging. Score: 2.0/2.0

Total Score: 7.5/10.0. Overall, just slightly better than the Healthy Choice meal.

I'll have a special feature tomorrow: a homemade frozen meal from my lovely friend Anne!
