Critique: Banquet’s Turkey Meal


Gobble gobble! It’s turkey dinner time and I thought I’d do yet another cheap TV dinner critique of a meal from our friends at ConAgra. Sometimes I get the feeling that they put out a new TV dinner every day cause I’m losing track here!  I’ll also admit I’ve become somewhat of a sucker for the fast salt-high that these one buck meals give me. I’ll just bet you all that ConAgra’s secret motto is something like, “When in doubt, salt the crap out of it”! But, I digress…
While this 250 calorie mini-meal comes in at a mind boggling 1,060 milligrams of sodium, it really shouldn’t be a concern as long as hypertension isn’t a problem in your life.  And, even though there’s not much turkey meat in this meal, the gravy was outstanding and made up for it to a great extent. (It was real turkey meat wasn’t it ConAgra)? I also liked the potatoes and the peas. Maybe I’m just getting Banquet-brain-washed. Not sure…

This is one dinner that I would have no problem keeping stashed in the back of the freezer for those occasions when I didn’t feel like cooking something up. Overall, I would give this repast a solid 7 on a scale of ten.
