Product Review: Hormel Compleats Kids Meals
15 April 2011
In the spirit of full disclosure, Hormel Foods provided samples of Hormel® Compleats® Kids Microwave Meals for me and my family to try. No payment was given and as always, all opinions given here are fully my own.
With that said, we were given one of each of the four current varieties of these Compleats Kids Meals:
1. The Spaghetti and Meatballs was immediately claimed by Jack, to my surprise, since he typically doesn't like saucy foods. To my even greater shock, he ate the entire dish and asked for more! This child is a VERY picky eater, so if I find these for a good price, I will probably grab some more for him in the future.
2. The Beef Ravioli was snagged by Chloë, who instantly devoured the whole bowl. She loved it, too. Score two for Hormel Compleats!
3. The Macaroni and Beef was left to Sophia, who was upset because she wanted either the Spaghetti and Meatballs or the Ravioli. However, she agreed to just TRY the Mac & Beef, and it turned out that she LOVED it. What's more, she had a taste of both Jack and Chloë's meals and still decided she liked hers best. Score three for Hormel Compleats.
4. No one wanted the Pasta & Chicken meal, so I made Rob eat it. None of the kids would even look at it, let alone taste it at all. Rob said it was extremely bland. He didn't like it a bit and only finished it because he didn't want it to go to waste. I mean, it was edible, but barely, in his opinion. We will definitely not be buying this variety.
I have some BOGO-free coupons for these meals and would be glad to send out a couple if anyone's interested in trying them. Just let me know in the comments below.
I was able to sample these Hormel Compleats Kids Meals as a member of the SheSpeaks program for women like me. I received no compensation from either Hormel or SheSpeaks for this post.
