I’m lazy. Three steps seem like it’s two steps too many, especially because many bagged meals involve just dumping their contents into a skillet. (Spotted by Carla and Kevin at Walmart.)

Cooks in less than a minute?! Geez, I can’t even open a can of vegetables, dump it into a pot, hit the bottom of the can several times to get out all the vegetables sticking to the inside of can, and turn on the stove in less than a minute. (Spotted by Adam at Tops Friendly Markets.)

Campbell's Grills Sauces (Cheddar Applewood Bacon Chicken and Grilled Teriyaki Chicken)

When I see these, I can’t help but think to myself, “Sooo, it’s as if McCormick added water to their powdered sauce packets and then put them in a pouch.” (Spotted by Adam at Tops Friendly Markets.)

  1. If Green Giant thinks adding “seasoning” and bacon to brussels sprouts is going to get people to eat them, I’m guessing they’re somewhere between maybe 50% right and 100% wrong. (Parents/kids/people who hate brussels sprouts and those who love bacon)

    I can’t remember which company, but one tried to do the whole pre-packaged sauce pouch for slow cookers.. pretty much exactly watered down seasoning packet at a higher price.

    1. I totally disagree with you. I just discovered this line of Green Giant ‘Saute’ products and am loving all of them! I didn’t realize they were going to be just temporary until I happened to come across this website today. I will be hoarding as many of these as possible! I don’t like Brussel Sprouts much, but these with the bacon, I love! In the past three weeks I think I have made them four times. And don’t even get me started on the Butternut Squash medley. It’s fantastic. And these are such time savers!
