|Roasted-chicken noodle soup|
|Sausage, peppers, & onions pasta entree|
- marinated mushrooms (these are normally really expensive, these were only $2) Verdict - tasty. I love having a couple with my lunches for a little something extra to snack on.
- canned pumpkin (this is like the brand-name version, pumpkin only, maybe $.59 each)
Verdict - I made iced pumpkin cookies with it and had some remaining that I used in a couple bowls of my morning oatmeal. Excellent, wouldn't know the difference from the regular brand, but how different could it really be?
- blackberry spreadable fruit
Verdict - haven't opened this yet
- artichoke hearts
Verdict - I don't remember using them, either they're still in the pantry or they were just like any other artichoke hearts I buy. I love artichoke hearts, which are really expensive, so finding them for less is a total score.
- sweet potato tortilla chips
Verdict - these are still in the pantry.
- mandarin oranges
Verdict - I bought them particularly for the recipe for orange fluff. They seemed perfectly fine but I don't buy canned mandarin oranges often (this might have been the second time ever?) to know how they compare.
- Hormel turkey pepperoni
Verdict - I buy these all the time, they were the same as what I get at my usual grocery store.
- light whipped topping
Verdict - used this for the orange fluff recipe along with the canned mandarins, it tasted like any light whipped topping, no weird aftertaste or anything.
- sausage & peppers frozen pasta entree
Verdict - I only had a quick taste of them when it was first made, but it seemed good and a little spicy. When I finally tasted the leftovers, they were slightly spicy, but generally bland. It was only ok, wouldn't really recommend it. Not that it was bad, but more that there wasn't much good to say about it.
- frozen chicken noodle soup
Verdict - really quite nice. The noodles were thick, the chicken was all white meat and no gross bits, and the veggies were fresh.
- shrimp (I figured shrimp is shrimp, plus it was really cheap!)
Verdict - I should have looked closer, I thought they were shelled and deveined, but the shrimp was only deveined, there was a shell and tail I had to remove. So more work than I usually want to fuss with, but still an awesome price.
- yogurt covered raisins
Verdict - Sonny D likes these, we use them as his treats for going potty. The raisins seem bigger than normal, almost like they're double-dipped, so there's lots of tasty "yogurt" coating.
- gummy bears
Verdict - Husband Jeff devoured them. The flavors are great, tastes like they're made with real juice for flavoring. I thought they were actually better than the standard Haribo gummy products.
- twisted elbow pasta
Verdict - These have a serving of veggies in a 2 oz serving, so it's nice to get that extra little bit of nutrition. I bought these specifically for Italian Wedding soup and they were great. They're a good shape (bigger than a regular elbow mac) for a toddler to eat with silverware rather than resorting to his hands.
- 2 bags of mixed salad (I think butter lettuce and a spring mix)
Verdict - excellent. Cheap, the quality was good, like any nice bagged salad.
- bag of spinach
Verdict - excellent
- Chianti wine for Husband Jeff
Verdict - he liked it and said I could buy it again.
- Cutie brand clementines
Verdict - excellent, just like the ones I buy anywhere.
Verdict - amazing price at $.59 each and they were great.
- whole raw mushrooms
Verdict - excellent, just like what I get at the store, and much cheaper at $.59.
- spray canola oil
Verdict - I like it. I love the Trader Joe's version, which doesn't spray much at a time, letting you get only a tiny bit. This sprays more at a time, but it's great for using on popcorn instead of butter.
