jim gaffigan said it best when he talks about food in pocket form:
"What was the idea behind Hot Pockets? Was there a marketing meeting somewhere, “Hey I got an idea: How about we take a Pop-Tart and fill it with really nasty meat? You could cook it in a sleeve thing, dunk it in a toilet."
and many prepared food companies both vegetarian and omnivorous have designed an edible form designed to be nuked in a micro sleeve and all of them pretty much taste like crap wrapped in greasy toast. then i saw this in the freezer section of kroger on sale. i figured, hey--my review for product feature friday!
because i have an extensive pregan history eating food in pocket, bar, and shake form--i wasn't expecting anything great, and i'm glad i wasn't. this wasn't awful, but i wouldn't suggest getting it unless it was in the super-duper-discount bin for a nickel a piece. the scramble is mediocre at best and the bread pocket that surrounds it isn't flaky or crusty at all. it probably would have tasted better had i deep fried it or baked it in a conventional oven. but my rationale is this: if i had time to use either one of those methods, i surely would have made something else to eat. meal in a pocket type foods were exclusively designed to cook in the micro and burn my taste buds. i managed to save mine this time, thank g-d or i would have been even sadder after ingesting said product.
while the small sammich packs an 11g of protein, it has less than one gram of fiber-BOO! bottom line: stay away from this product. make your own tofu scramble, wrap it in some pizza dough or your own home made pie crust, and freeze for later baking. some convenience foods just aren't worth the time.
you are better off eating one of her other vegan options: brown rice and vegetables. then again, you can make that at home kids.
tout le weekend!
