From my post here last week:
For Dave's Killer Bread we bought the green wrapper... "Organic 21 Whole Grains & Seeds", there were 2 options on this loaf at my store, Regular Slice or Thin Sliced. We went with the Regular Sliced. Approximately 15 slices in a 765 gram loaf.
This is a "heavier" bread with 5 grams of Protein, 5 grams of Fibre, and 22 grams of Whole Grains per slice, and 120 calories. It toasted up nice, and delivered a pleasant nutty sweet taste. I thought that might be because there was honey in the mix, but label says molasses. We've moved the loaf from the counter to the fridge, and now the freezer, in hopes of being able to enjoy the entire loaf. It was that good.
Would I buy again? Ya probably, but at the listed regular price at $ 5.49 it is certainly not cheap.
For Marketplace Cuisine we bought the Vermont & White Cheddar Mac & Cheese... High Protein, 75% Organic Ingredients. Back of the box says this is a Nestlé product. The microwave only tray is 225 grams and delivers 270 calories. As we only had the one, we decided to serve it up as a side between us. We both thought it tasty. And it was easy to prepare, smelled good & presented well. Will say tho at 225 grams this is a pretty small portion, even for 1 person. Think one would want at the least a Salad to accompany it. So might be good for a take to work lunch, or someone watching their calories. Mind you the Sodium number was not good at 730 mg (21% of recommended daily intake) but that is common for these heat & serve dishes. Overall thought it was an excellent Mac & Cheese though.
Would we buy again?
Ya probably. At a regular price of $ 2.99 we thought it good value for the quality, especially compared to other such microwaveable single serve meals. And it definitely delivered on taste, and thats a lot to be said for this food sector.
I bought the bread. Didnt really like it so I threw it in the freezer for toast cuz I hate to waste it.
tried to get a couple of pieces and the whole thing had frozen into a solid lump . Impossible to pry off individual slices.
No matter how carefully I tried, each piece just tore and splintered. Never seen this before with any sliced bread.
Whole loaf into the trash.
Too bad. Not great experience.
