Critique: Aunt Jemima’s Scrambeled Egg entree




For a couple of bucks you get granular eggs, mushy hash browns and a couple of limp bacon strips! So, what’s not to love?
This 149 gram entrée from the folks at Quaker Oats would not seem that appetizing at first glance. It’s also a nutritionally challenged meal coming in at 310 calories of which 200 of those calories are derived from fat! To add misery to madness, the cholesterol does is 92% of the daily recommended allowance for an average person and there’s enough salt present (36%) to make you crave a glass of water afterwards. And don’t even get me started on the saturated fat content of this little puppy….
So, why do I buy and eat junk food like this? Call me crazy or perhaps just a bit off, but this stuff does really taste gooood! Maybe it’s the fat content and maybe it all that salt. Whatever the reason, I like to make Aunt Jemima part of my breakfast plans one or twice a month. I’ll score this a solid 7 on a scale of 10. (The score would have been higher, but hey – this stuff isn’t very healthy to eat)!
