Pictsweet Steamables Cajun Shrimp Gumbo: Review

Josh picked these out at the grocery store about a month ago. The flavor wasn't really calling to me until yesterday. Following the instructions I put it in the microwave for about seven minutes and then poured it in my bowl.

I was shocked to see what two servings looked like. Why do companies do this? I know that 110 calories might seem more appealing to someone but this is seriously a one person meal at 220 and that isn't bad at all.

I try to avoid convenience foods (emphasis on the word try) but sometimes its nice to just eat and go on. I will say that after eating this meal, I could easily make this myself and freeze it for later.

The verdict? On the first bite, I couldn't help but notice how salty it seemed. There were five peices of shrimp in the bag and they were surprisingly really good. I loved the shrimp, I could have eaten 20 of them. They tasted fresh and had a really nice flavor. The cajun flavor was nice and the vegetables were simply o-kay. I felt like I was tolerating them, even the okra. I'm not an okra fan so I'm biased. There was very little rice in the whole bag, maybe 1/4 of a cup total to keep the calorie count down.

I have no idea how much we paid for these, probably a couple of dollars. I will keep track of that next time. Overall, I would probably try these again in a different flavor. I felt like they were reasonably healthful and filling. I would watch for the sodium and maybe eat this with a salad next time.
