These all-in-one meals are tough. Remove the covering from the ‘desert’, slitting the covering over the meal and/or veggies as required.
They never cook right. With Healthy Choice meals the desert is always cooked to death to get the main portion cooked right. Cooking inconsistencies aside, this isn’t too bad. Would I eat it again? Sure.
Healthy Choice – Meatloaf
(1-10) with 10 being the best.
|Portion Size||7||Overall a decent portion size. But could be a little better.|
|Portability||7||Fits fairly well in a small soft sided thermal lunch box. You still have room for snacks and what-not.|
|Cookability||7||The time indicated on the box is spot on for the main course and veggies. Ruins the desert though.|
|Preparation||7||Remove covering from desert, slit over meal and veggies. Removing the covering from the desert whilst not breaking the seal on the other compartments is easier said than done.|
|Food Quality |
|7||I realize taste is subjective, the meatloaf is better than some cafeteria meatloaf I’ve had in the past. There is certainly cause for speculation that this might not actually be meat. It’s still edible though and that’s a plus. Veggies are usually good with these meals. Desert, is burnt apple mush.|
|Over ALL Score||35||out of a possible 50 isn’t just barely tolerable.|
