REVIEW LIGHTNING ROUND (FREEZER AISLE EDITION) – 2/26/2013

Here are some quick reviews of new frozen foods we’re too lazy to write full reviews for:

Weight Watchers Smart Ones Thin Crust Pepperoni Pizza

Item: Weight Watchers Smart Ones Thin Crust Pepperoni Pizza
Purchased Price: $2.39
Size: 4.4 ounces
PointsPlus Value: 8 points
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Better tasting than I thought it would be. Comes with crisping tray. Box turns into cooking platform (Transformers…More than meets the eye!). Crispy crust on the outside. Pepperoni had a nice spice. Good source of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.
Cons: Kind of sad looking. Microwave oven preparation only. Most of the crust was so chewy that it gave my jaw a good workout. Bland tomato sauce. Cheese looked dried out. Unless you take gigantic bites, you’re not going to get pepperoni in every bite.

Weight Watchers Smart Ones Turkey Bacon Melt Quesadilla

Item: Weight Watchers Smart Ones Turkey Bacon Melt Quesadilla
Purchased Price: $2.69
Size: 2 pack
PointsPlus Value: 6 points
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Soooo much cheese that even when a lot of it gets lost on crisping tray, there’s still a lot of cheese. Nice smoky, cheesy, and tomato flavor. My goodness there’s a lot of cheese. Never mind fruits, this has 7 grams of fiber. Good source of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.
Cons: Lots of cheese end up on the crisping tray. Only filling enough to be part of a complete breakfast. Microwave oven preparation only. Cheese oozes out all over the place.

Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chicken Slider

Item: Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chicken Slider
Purchased Price: $2.69
Size: 2 pack
PointsPlus Value: 5 points
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 5 out of 10
Pros: They’re sooo adorable! Who’s a wittle one? Yes, you are. Mostly soft, bun. Decent chicken patty thickness. Quick to prepare. Appropriate slider size (2.75 inches in diameter). Good source of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.
Cons: Chicken breading didn’t have much flavor or crunch. At times, the chicken patty had a weird unrecognizable flavor. Bun did get hard in some places. Makes me yearn for some White Castle.

Weight Watchers Smart Ones Exclusive Flavor Spicy Chicken Slider

Item: Weight Watchers Smart Ones Exclusive Flavor Spicy Chicken Slider
Purchased Price: $2.69
Size: 2 pack
PointsPlus Value: 5 points
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Soft, but sturdy bun. Mild spiciness at the back end. Not awesome, but a decent tasting snack. Easy to prepare. Good source of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. White Castle has nothing to worry about.
Cons: Some parts of the chicken patty were tougher than others. Microwave only. Breading not at all crunchy. Spicy heat gets lost with the heat coming from the microwaved sandwich. Why do I taste pickles when there are no pickles?

  1. If you had to give your expert opinion would you say Smart One’s products are a good or bad source of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats?

  2. The pizza actually looks kinda yummy, although the sliders look disgusting. I’m guessing it wouldn’t come close to the breakfasty sweet and salty peanuty-oily goodness of a Chick Fil A Mini.
