Yesterday's Frozen Meal: Healthy Choice Chicken Pad Thai
Friday, 2010 May 7 - 11:23 am
From the "Café Steamers" collection: "Chicken Tenderloin with Whole Grain Pasta and Vegetables in a Sweet and Mild Curry Sauce".

Box

Meal+Meal

Meal

So, I forgot to take a picture of the combined meal before eating it. Imagine the picture above, just a bit browner.

Taste: My first reaction is, "You've got to be kidding". This isn't even close to being pad thai. Do they assume that someone who doesn't know what pad thai is would pick up this box and not know the difference? It's a very mild curry, with hoisin flavor. No peanuts. No tamarind. No fish sauce. It's not completely objectionable, but I'm a bit peeved at how far off it is from the real thing. Score: 1.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Too bad about the flavor, because it's pretty good nutritionally. Score: 3.0/3.0

Packaging: Convenient Café steamer packaging. Score: 2.0/2.0

Total Score: 6.5/10.0
