I'm not going to list all of their ingredients because that would make this just too long, but there was no corn syrup, msg, artificial colors or flavors or preservatives in any of them, making these very acceptable for my family. Here is the full breakdown of each dish.
Pad Thai Asian Noodles:
GR: "All right."
Me: "Surprisingly Tomatoey."
G: He said most of the dishes, including this one was "tasty."
JK: Didn't like this one, but that's not a surprise. I don't know too many kids that like eggplant.
GR: "Not bad."
SR: Didn't try this one because of dislike of eggplant. She also wanted to say that even though she's not "big on Indian food," she liked all the dishes she tried.
Me: "Good, but the eggplant is indistinguishable from the other ingredients."
Garlic Brown Rice:
JK: Didn't try this one.
GR: "A little bland."
SR: Didn't try either.
Me: "I agree with GR."
G: "Good flavor but slightly dry."
JK: "That is good!"
JK: These ended up being his favorite, and he went back to finish up the pot.
GR: "Good!" Her fave too.
Ginger Lentil Rice:
JK: "Not very good."
GR: "I like it."
G: He liked this one.
My overall impression:
- I liked the quick preparation. For my family, this entire meal was ready in less than ten minutes; that's pretty good!
- When I had all the dishes on one plate, the brown ones blended in with each other. I would have liked them to be a bit more visually different, but they were tasty.
- These are definitely not gourmet, and they wouldn't replace my dinners on a regular basis. However, I can see me keeping a few of these on hand in the pantry, especially the favored ones, for those busy nights, or for the Blessings to make their own lunches or snacks during the day.
- I prefer fresh foods over pre-packaged, but as far as pre-packaged goes, these were a fairly healthy choice.
- In the end, these were definitely a hit with my family, and we give these an overall thumbs-up. Recommended for purchase!
