Healthy Choice Complaint - Healthy Choice - Doesn't look like picture!
Ordinarily, I'm not a big fan of frozen dinners, so I don't purchase them. However, working on my current project keeps me from getting away to a restaurant for dinner, so....I had to pick one up. I decided on the Healthy Choice Traditional Turkey Breast (with gravy, dressing, cherry crisp and vegetable medley). I opted for the Healthy Choice hoping to shave a few calories off my dinner and have something better for me than just a burger in a bag. The photo on the front of the box certainly seemed appealing too.
However, what emerged from the microwave was a little disappointing. The photo on the box front shows sizeable "fingers" of turkey, draped over dressing with a corn carrot and pea medley that would make grandma jealous at Thanksgiving. What I got upon peeling back the cellophane was very very small turkey shavings, a generous amount of gravy over a small amount of dressing. The vegetables were okay, though the portion was skimpy. The cherry crisp was not very crisp.
Now, I realize, it's a frozen dinner, not gourmet, grandma didn't make it, and it's not even close to Thanksgiving. That being said, I wish manufacturers could put more accurate representations of their product on the front of their boxes! Leave the food-stylists to TV shows, just give us a photo of what the thing's gonna look like before we eat it!
All in all, I'd have to give this dinner a C+. I'm sure I saved some calories, likely ate a bit "healthier," but I must say, it was disappointing as well.
