So recently I went to Sprouts and saw "Seven Spoons" frozen meals for two....
Looks deliscious right? Well I can't say it didn't taste good, but buyer beware and look at contents closely..... out of the net weight of 654gr (23.1 oz) only 36 grams or 1.29 oz is CHICKEN!!!
I couldn't believe it.... this is supposed to be a meal for 2 people, but the amount of chicken/protein in it is 1.29 oz? And all the rest is guess what white rice a few cashews and sauce....
This is just amazing to me, how in the world do these food companies get away with this? Come on, 1.29 oz of chicken so pretty much that's 0.65 oz/ 18 grams of chicken/protein per person?
That's the amount of protein a 4-9 year old child needs in a day! How are you going to market your product as a meal for two?? This is not a meal for 4 - 9 year old children.... it's an adult meal!
For example an inactive adult male with a body weight of 185 lbs needs at least 66 grams of protein to just sustain his body functions..
Well needless to say, this is not a product I would ever buy again. Not because it didn't taste good, but because it's just wrong to advertise this as a balanced meal.... out of one portion of 328 grams.... 18 grams are actually protein, the rest..... processed white rice, a few nuts and sauce! SO disappointing!
If you ever get tempted to buy it.... just buy it for the seasoning in the sauce, which is terrific but just go and get some extra chicken to toss in..... cause otherwise, you'll have to go find it amongst all the excess rice!
