Cajun Pizza?
Posted by Starlord on 12/06/2007
CASA GRANDE, ARIZONA -- My wife and I have been eating Red Baron pizzas for years, and have always liked them because they are not as spicy as the Domino's pizzas, and are more economical than either Domino's or Pizza Hut.
Last weekend, we picked up one each of a pepperoni pizza, standard crust, and a rising crust, super deluxe pizza. We intended to have an evening of watching movies and enjoying some good pizza. Man, did we ever get fooled. Now, the wife's pepperoni, as usual with Red Baron, was perfect. I had a bite of it, and the suace was as good as RB usually is, and the pepperoni was deliciious. My pizza, however, made my nose hairs curl when the wife brought it into the living room. I thought my sense of smell was just better because I had quit smoking in November of 2006. Imagine how I felt when I bit into the pizza and almost gagged on the spices in the sauce. I bravely soldiered on and ate my pizza, having been in situations in my life where I developed a strong aversion to wasting food.
With tears running down my cheeks, and after guzzling a glass of milk, trying to kill the heat, I examined the box, and halfway expected to find that it was a Cajun Pizza, but I failed to find the word Cajun anywhere on the box. I had trouble all evening with indigestion, and it was topped off about 2:30 AM when I became violently ill. My wife and I both contacted Red Baron, which I then found out is a Schwan brand.
Here it is almost a full week later, and RB has not had the courtesy to contact us.
We have been eating Red Baron pizzas for well over ten years, but I believe I have eaten my last RB pizza. The wife still likes the pepperoni pizza, as that is the only type she eats, and the RB vanilla pepperoni pizza still is good for her. I however, like supreme or deluxe (sort of like PH Meat Lovers or similar.)
I am diabetic, and the vomiting threw my blood sugar readings out of whack for a couple of days, and RB can't even be bothered to respond to a suctomer's complaint.

starlord, congrats on the quitting smoking and keeping it up.

Thank you, jkt. A group out of Kingman, AZ does group hypnosis clinics for Weight Loss and Smoking Cessation, and I attended one on November 14, 2006. During the intermission, I smoked my last cigarette and threw away about 2/3 of a pack and have never looked back. An hour and a half later, I walked out of the seminar and have not desired a smoke since. Unlike a lot of former smokers, I do not get in smoker's faces and preach to them that they should quit, I feel that is a personal decision, but it was right for me. I just know my COPD could be a lot worse if I was still smoking.

Starlord, we had a similar problem with Digiorno pizza. We bought a plain cheese pizza and when we bit into it there was so much sauce it was sickening. It was just dripping off the pizza. It over took the cheese. Totally gross, never bought another pizza from Digiorno. I have an ulcer so you can imagine what my night was like after eating just a few bites of that pizza. I never waste food either but that went right into the garbage.

If I were you I would call again. It may have been just one pizza, but if something is wrong with it they should know and take it seriously.

Great job Starlord and I totally agree with the "personal decision" statement. It took me a heart attack to quit and I can't put anyone down who is still smoking because it took me 35 years and I tried everything. I think it is an addiction not a crime. (VH)

The reason I quit is simple, two pregnancies! I had a choice at that point, smoke and expose my unborn baby to second hand smoke, or quit and have a healthy baby. I chose option 2. I smoked twice after I had my kids and almost threw up both times from the taste it left in my mouth. Haven't had a smoke in almost 8 years.

I had a stroke in 2004 and have been smoking for 55 years. I quit drinking 32 years ago and it was easier to quit drinking than smoking.
I still smoke. At my age I figure that I'm entitled to one simple, sinful pleasure!

Good job Princ!

Old Fart, I here what you are saying and if I was older then dirt it self I would smoke too! LOL (JK)
My grandma was 86 when they told her she was going to die in, maybe 6 months to two years and she said the first thing the Doctor told her was she had to quit smoking, she said she laugh so much it hurt. When she told me this I was seeing her for the first time in many years. She was sitting is a big chair and next to it was what looked like a giant ashtray. She then held out a cigarette and a lighter and asks if I could light it for her because she couldn't see it anymore, of course I did! We had a great time that day and I will never forget that and then my ant the X-Nun come out and says, "Oh He11 yeah, we can smoke" she thought that they would not be able to because they thought I didn't and at the time I did.

I quit during my pregnancy and up until my son was totally off the "home made" milk. Congrats on your quitting! I've been trying for years and the only thing that worked was getting pregnant... Now if I could just *stay* pregnant.
Posted by Principissa on 2007-12-06:
Gothic you couldn't pay me enough to stay pregnant! My babies were so big that I actually wanted to die the last month. Between the puking, constant need to pee and the psychotic need to clean and eat anything in arms reach I was a nut job. I love my babies to pieces but never ever again!

This Year's First Christmas Joke

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

'In honor of this holy season,' Saint Peter said, 'You must each
possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.'

The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He

flicked it on. 'It represents a candle,' he said

'You may pass through the pearly gates,' Saint Peter said.

The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys.
He shook them and said, 'They're bells.'

Saint Peter said, 'You may pass through the pearly gates'.

The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.

St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'And just what do those symbolize?'

The man replied, 'These are Carols.'

And So The Christmas Season Begins.

My Mom just told me about something like this the other day. They always buy this brand, but the last one they bought was terrible. Huh!!!

I have to say, my kid who doesn't like most foods and freaks out if he sees you put seasoning on foods thinks Red Baron pizza is the best because its sauce is spicy.

I stay away from frozen pizzas I like mine made fresh to order.

Papa Murphy..............where are you??????????
Posted by Starlord on 2007-12-06:
Steve, Crystal asked me about the vanilla pepperoni, too, and I was surprised she had never heard this use of the word vanilla. It means plain, no frills. In people who are into the Dom/sub lifestyle, it means the so-called 'normal' people.
Wally, we would give anything to ge3t a Papa Murphy's down here. I told Crystal when we win the Powerball, I was going to get a Papa Murphy's franchise in Casa Grande. We tried them when we were in Washington, and they were divine. Take and Bake is the only way to go.

Yep, what Starlord said. Vanilla usually means plain.
Posted by Anonymous on 2007-12-06:
Papa Murphys is good,they just have a fresh taste.
I was thinking that vanilla meant vanilla flavor(but that would be weird...right?)LOL

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I did indeed transpose some letters, so customer came out 'suctomer.' As I told someone once who jumped on me for a 'spelliong error,' I spell excellently, I just type lousy. Please to forgive me, anyone can make a mistake.

DO NOT TRY and GET COMPENSATION FROM RED BARONS' LOUSY SUPREME PIZZAS' BECAUSE ALL THEY WILL OFFER YOU IN 2 - $1 OFF COUPONS TO YOUR NEXT 2 PURCHASES! I SPOKE TO MICHELLE, A SUPPOSED SUPERVISOR WHO SAID SHE HAS NO MANAGER TO LET ME SPEAK TO. EVERYONE ANSWERS TO SOMEONE ABOVE THEM.
UNLESS I PROVIDE A RECEIPT I CANNOT OBTAIN A REFUND. I SAID THIS IS HOW YOU TREAT CUSTOMERS? WORD OF MOUTH IS YOUR BIGGEST ADVERTISEMENT. I ASKED FOR A FREE COUPON TOWARDS ANOTHER 1 OF THEIR PRODUCTS BUT WAS REFUSED. I SAID I BOUGHT THIS PIZZA IN GOOD FAITH, FULL PRICE, BECAUSE IT SAID YOU WERE A SUBSIDIARY OF SCHWANNS'. I HADN'T HAVE BOUGHT SCHWANNS PIZZAS SINCE MY SON LEFT FOR COLLEGE SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY TASTE LIKE NOW TO COMPARE. IN THE PAST THEY WERE EXCELLENT. I SAID I WOULD GO AHEAD AND BLOGG AND SHE SAID "GO AHEAD" FOR SHAME TO LOSE A CUSTOMER OVER A COUPLE OF DOLLARS. I HAD THE BOX and GAVE THEM MY 3 CENTS WORTH OF HOW I FELT. LEARN FROM THIS PEOPLE. THEY DO NOT CARE!

I to have been very disappointed with the customer service at Scwanns.. We found a foreign object in our classic pizza. My son pulled it out of his mouth because he tasted something very rank. The first thing that hit me was the smell. After taking pictures of it and what was left off the object that was under the cheese, called them and gave us a free coupon. They requested that we send it to them which we did and my mistake was not keeping a part of it to be analyzed. After weeks of not hearing from them, I called them and they said it was just part of the crust. I was lied to and there is nothing I can do about it now because I sent them the item back.

Big Baron Was Big Disappointment
Posted by Starlord on 03/10/2012
We have always considered Red Baron to be one of the best frozen pizzas on the market. Crystal went shopping last week and Big Baron was on sale, so she picked one up. The pizza was square, and did look and smell good as it baked. As they say, though, the proof of the pizza is in the eating. and it was just terrible. The sauce was way too spicy, and the pepperonis were like meat-scented poker chips. We have always thought of Red Baron as the Papa Murphy's of frozen pizza, but the Big Baron was more like the Round Table.

This sounds unappetizing, Starlord. We've been using DiGiorno pizza (for quick lunches now and then) and it's reasonably decent.

Believe it or not, Lean Cuisine pizzas are actually kinda tasty. I mean, it's still frozen pizza so it's not like eating Papa Johns. But it's better than a lot of frozen pizza out there

All frozen pizza's taste like card board to me. I like my pizza made fresh.

I tried Native New Yorker's pizza for the first time a few weeks ago. It was really good pizza.

But my mom makes the best pizza.
Posted by Old Timer on 2012-03-10:
Thanks for the head's up on Red Baron! Our local Von's has a fresh pizza in the deli that you take home to cook. It has never been frozen. It's not too bad and you don't have to fold it in half to fit your freezer, it's really big. Just take it home and put it in the oven the same day. We add some additional fresh goodies to it most of the time.

LS, saying that a pizza is not like Pj's is actually a compliment, lol.

Hey now! my Pj's serves up a good pizza.

I like red baron pan pizza. I like red baron cheese pizzas and fire stoned pizzas, I like red baron mostly, but never heard of the big baron. But i mostly like their cheese pizzas, not their meat pizzas (unless its supreme and i always take their pepperonis off).
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-03-10:
I started with Red Baron pizza, regular old pepperoni I believe. I may have tried another brand - I can't remember. I seem to recall paying $3 for it on sale, about 5 years ago. I also seem to recall that it ranked at least average among frozen pizza connoisseurs.

At some point, I tried Wegman's frozen pizza, which is $3.99 all the time. It was 10 times better! I remember the crust is far better on the Wegman's, but the rest is as well. I switched back to the Baron once, and I found it almost disgusting by comparison.

I see the Baron at regular prices of $6.99 and I laugh. My last memory of that pizza is not a good one.

Costco has really good frozen pizza. They also have good pizza in their cafeteria area
Posted by Starlord on 2012-03-11:
Big Baron is a new product, apparently, as it ws the first time I have seen it. Safeway and WalMart both have take and bake pizzast none can compare with Papa Murphy's. According to Zagat, Papa Murphy's has been voted by customer of all pizza joints as the best for nine years in a row now. Zagat polls all customers for thier decisions, not like Popeye's, who polled THEIR customers in comparing their fiery chicken to KFCs regular. I'd call that fixed.

I work for Red Baron. I could get fired for revealing this, but the stock of "Big Baron" pizzas on the market (being bought by big box retailers) dates to 2006 and 2007. When the frozen pizza hasn't been packaged into cardboard (but still has the plastic wrap) we can keep them safely at sub-zero temperatures for years. They get an expiration date after being packaged in a box in preparation for shipping. That's why if you try to look up these pizzas, you will only find google results from many years ago.
