Organically tasteless

On a random grocery trip in Shopwise Commonwealth, I found myself getting excited over a freezer full of microwavable vegetarian meals! Most of the items in the freezer were from Amy's. I was so excited to see the wide array of products they had: pasta, pizza, burgers and even burritos and enchiladas!

In my excitement I almost hoarded everything-- well, actually I did at first. Except I saw the price on each and I had to return most of the items. Lol! :) I did however get a couple of stuff to try, one of which is the Broccoli & Cheese Pocket Sandwich.
This one costs 199.00php and contains one sandwich pocket
The instructions on the box was very easy: take it out, pop it in microwave for 2-3 minutes. That's it!
The 3 minutes felt like eternity! I was so excited to try it! I love broccoli-- add to that some really good cheese and what do you have? A meal that could send me to food heaven! Nom nom nom!

Tick-tock-tick-tock and thennnnn BEEP! It's done!
Here you have it! Ta-dah!--err--? What is that?
It doesn't even look half as pretty as the picture on the box! :( Still, still, the true verdict is in the taste! So how was the first bite? Total blah.

I'm so sad :( I really thought I found my best-est microwable buddy in Amy but alas! Our tastes differ by a mile. I didn't like it at all :(

"Instant" vegetarian meals constantly fail me but I'm not losing hope! I'm sure one of these days, I'd chance upon a freezer full of really good microwavable vegetarian options--until then, I'd have to be more creative in preparing my meals each day. *sigh


  1. aww, what a let down. very pricey too. hot pockets are nowhere near that price. i used to buy my vegan fare near my place at vegefoods. not very good but convenient :)

  2. Oh gosh I am addicted to microwave food. Definitely need to try these out :)

  3. oh damn, that sucks! when i saw that picture of the box, i thought, "omg i'm gonna head over to Shopwise tomorrow." too bad it didn't turn out the way you expected!

    good luck on the microwavable food hunt tho!

    boat ride through the sky

  4. @fashioneggplant: total letdown :( I get what you mean by getting non-so-tasty food just because it'convenient. but I think vegefood is not that bad co'z if it was you won't go back (well, at least I won't :P)

    @belly b: oh please don't. haha, I don't recommend it

    @gela: yes, the picture on the box fooled me too. So sad :(
