July 28 Frozen Meal: Tai Pei Chicken Fried Rice
Tuesday, 2010 August 17 - 1:53 pm
"Chicken, vegetables and fried rice with oyster flavored sauce".

Box

Meal

I had to put this in a bowl because you can't see it very well in the box after you cook it. The picture above is about half the box; the box claims to provide 2.5 servings, but at 403 grams total, it's easy to eat the whole thing.

Taste: There's nothing fried about this; it's boiled rice, boiled vegetables, boiled chicken, in a sauce that pretty much just tastes like soy sauce. Perhaps if you took the contents and heated them in a skillet, you'd get something resembling fried rice. As it is, it's quite a bit worse than what you'd get at a cheap Chinese takeout place. Score: 1.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Accounting for the fact that there are 2.37 170-gram servings in a box, the actual nutrition numbers are:
calories: 590
calories from fat: 190
fat:21 g
saturated fat:2 g
cholesterol:24 mg
sodium:2060 mg
carbohydrates:78 g
fiber:2 g
sugar:2 g
protein:19 g
vitamin A:95%
vitamin C:9%
calcium:9%
iron:5%
It's like drinking a box of oil and salt. Score: 0.0/3.0

Packaging: Couldn't be simpler: just throw the whole thing in the microwave. The packaging is the only saving grace for this meal. Score: 2.0/2.0

Total Score: 3.5/10.0 I think this is a record low.
