Healthy Choice Chicken Margherita Cafe Steamer

Reader Sydney Hamilton has stepped up to ensure that you don’t have to go another day without a FoodIRL post:

Looks: It doesn’t look terrible, but it doesn’t look great. The chicken looks so dry in comparison to the pictured ones. The sauce is wayyy thicker than shown and the tomatoes in the picture are much more vibrant than the ones in the actual dish. It’s not too far off though. 3.5 out of 5

Taste: This is the worst thing I have ever eaten. The “angel hair” pasta is basically thicker than linguine, and they are so overcooked and mushy. The tomatoes are so hard and crispy, I thought they were peppers until I realized they weren’t. The chicken is dry and the sauce is way too thick and super bland. 1.5 out of 5

Personally, if something was the worst thing I had ever eaten, it would be lucky to get 0 out of 5, much less 1.5 out of 5.

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. Sydney….what’s your second worst thing so that we have a better gauge of your tastes. Like where does a McRib stand on your scale? What’s the best thing you’ve eaten?

    If this user-submitted photo scores a 3.5 for looks, it’s a testament to how good our regular FoodIRL guy has gotten at food photography.

    This photo looks closer to a 0.5. It almost looks like a completely different food.

    I with the mous above; this looks like a different food to me. I might give it a 1 out of 5 for being pasta based.

    There’s literally nothing in common with the food and the box picture. Where did the 3.5 come from?

    I actually like the taste of this dish! It’s not that bad!

    if this is the worst you’ve ever eaten you obviously never eaten hormel completes. consider yourself lucky in that respect.

    I don’t see how this got a 3.5 on looks. The chicken is cut up into chunks, but on the box it is tender-sized. Also, where are those nice grill marks that the box so proudly advertises? You can’t even see the sauce on the prepared dish, yet the reader claims it’s too thick. If it’s thick, you’d think we’d see it (well, except for the occasional drop on the side of the bowl).

    I appreciate the fact that the submitter took the time to actually prepare a review. That being said, their rating system needs some serious work.

    Honestly, this person was FAR too nice in their grading. The food doesn’t even begin to look like the picture on the box. I would give it a 1 out of 5 only because it seems to have the same ingredients as pictured, and if it’s the worst thing they ever ate shouldn’t the grade be 0 out of 5?
