Ok, I admit, I'm not one to buy a pre-packaged meal from the freezer section of the Supermarket. I have guilt issues. I am one of those women who shop in the market peering at other young women's carts and commenting on how they are shopping in a supermarket yet they buy frozen Prepared food! Well, I was one of those women yesterday, and after eating a really good dinner last night...my opinion has changed!!
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program®, I agreed to sample a Free package of Birds Eye Voila®.
I know I tout a mantra about fast food, but this truly is Fast Food with Slow Food Flavor. I equate this "Meal in a Bag" to what I would get if I had made Chicken Alfredo and frozen it for a later date. The spices, flavor and content were definitely satisfactory.
Here's what you get: I got the 23 oz package..here's a pic of the actual bag:
I received a Coupon from Birds Eye® for a FREE 23 oz package. Coupon value was for $5.99 My Grocer's price was $5.49. So I was straight. There were probably 8-10 different flavors to choose from. Flavor choices were Italian, American and even Asian.The Birds Eye website lists 17 different flavors in this package size. I brought the package home and read the instructions. It said to pour the contents of the bag, the sauce package and 2 tbsp of water into a saute pan and heat covered on med high for 10 minutes. (There are microwave instructions also) I have to admit, for college kids who have a microwave handy, this would be a treat!
The contents of a 23 oz package is enough for 2 servings. Served aside a fresh salad and nice crusty bread, you have a substantial meal that took literally 10 minutes without the sacrifice of a Take Out price tag or the fast food guilt. Thumbs up Birdseye!
