Today's Frozen Meal: Marie Callender's Honey Roasted Turkey
Thursday, 2010 March 18 - 4:32 pm
"With Cheddar-Bacon Mashed Potatoes, Gravy & Vegetables."

Box

Meal

There's this curious note on the back:

Meal

Who do you think you're kidding, "Marie"? I know when meals contain love, and this one surely doesn't. Unless love is made from polysorbate 80 and disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate.

Taste: The turkey is of the typical processed meat chunk variety; nothing special or authentic about it. The honey is definitely noticeable, and it seems an odd choice with the turkey. The potatoes seem like they're reconstituted, and sure enough, the ingredients list "rehydrated potato flakes and granules". You can't taste the cheddar or bacon in them. The vegetables are surprisingly the best feature; they're lightly seasoned and pleasantly firm. Score: 2.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Bad in all the bad-for-you categories, but somewhat redeemed by high fiber and vitamin content. Score: 1.5/3.0

Packaging: You have to peel the film and somehow try to stir the turkey separately from the potatoes. Score: 1.0/2.0

Total Score: 5.0/10.0
