Comment on A Comparison of Actual “Banquet” Frozen Dinners with their Box Cover Photographs by Kraston.

Funny, I found myself in the grocery store one day pondering which $3 Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice I should buy and then my eye wandered to the Banquet meals and then the price tag that read $0.88 cents!!! Wow, next I examined the nutrition labels and they were not much different than the Lean Cuisines! So then I had to try them, I bought the Boneless Pork Rib and thought the ribs and corn were tasty but the mash potatoes tasted a little like grits…I added some ground pepper to the potatoes and I actually enjoyed this $0.88 cent lunch! Better than the last school lunch I had with my kids last month! 🙂 ha!
