Oscar Meyer Informative - Nutritional disaster area

Review by Starlord on 2007-10-19
COOLIDGE, ARIZONA -- I have heard Oscar Meyer Lunchables described as a nutritional disaster area for some time now. We got a coupon for an amount off the regular price of the new Oscar Meyer Deli Creations sandwich and decided to give one a try. This is a Lunchables for adults, which means a real nutritional disaster area. The sandwich is much smaller than they make it appear on television, and refrigeration does nothing for the bun. The bottom of it broke into two pieces trying to get it out of the packaging and apart. There is so much packaging used that it really got comical. The ham was in one plastic package, a slice of Swiss cheese in another, the bun in a third, packages of mustard and mayo, and a microwave heating dish made of paper. All this was enclosed in a package made of cardboard with a plastic window. The sandwich could have been assembled at the plant and just have the condiments enclosed. The sandwich contained 440 calories, 1410 mg sodium and 50 g of carbohydrates.

After heating according to the directions, the sandwich was barely palatable and the ham and cheese were the only things that really had any taste. The bun tasted like the pulp drink carriers might taste. If not for the coupon, we would not have tried it and even if given one free, we would not take it.

Save your money and get some popcorn chicken at Sonic or KFC.

Starlord that is a lot of salt.

Yes, that sodium is more than enough for three meals. We won't be doing that again. In addition, I have to watch my carbs, being a diabetic. If you have diabetes, this is like eating a strychnine sandwich.

Good informative Starlord. We've all heard of the hugh sodium content on FF, TV dinners and nonfrozen convenience foods in the grocery not even taking into consideration the so called nutritional value. I'll try a new/existing product with a coupon tossed in for good measure. I don't expect this will be one of them.

Starlord, all of the pre-packaged stuff has tons of salt and chemicals in it so it will hold shelf life. If you read all of the chemicals they were serving you I think you would have thrown it in the trash.
