  1. The Boston Market frozen meals are some of the worst TV Dinners I’ve ever had. The $1 Banquet meals have better taste then Boston Market. lol

  2. The carrot cake bites are more cookie crumbles / granola texture than cake….if i had known before searching for them at target, probably would not have gotten them. its a pass. They’re carrot cake flavored cookie bites…no softness or cakey texture.

  3. Hmmm…. Powdered sugar mixed with cream cheese as a carrot dip, perhaps? Isn’t that basically what cream cheese frosting for carrot cake is? (Not a cook, just an eater.)

    Or just mix it all together with shredded carrots as a sweet sandwich filling or cracker topper. Why not? For savory, I like shredded/chopped carrots, chopped onion, and peanut butter for sandwiches, crackers, and taco shells. If you blend them in a good blender (rather than just mashing things together with a fork or adding them in layers to the bread), you get a really smooth spread. But low-tech chunky is good, too.

    Of course, they probably do sell canisters of cream cheese frosting somewhere far far away from the produce section. You would just have to commit to eating it all before it goes bad. Watch out for jaundice from all those carrots.

  4. The white chocolate Nutty Bars are a ripoff and not very good.
    My biggest issue with them is that they are down 1 wafer versus the standard Nutty Bar. Normally 4 wafers in a Nutty Bar…the white chocolate ones, which includes these spring ones, only have 3 wafers.

    Plus the flavoring is just off.
