Hormel Compleats Turkey & Dressing

Looks: The turkey lurks, just below the surface, peering out like a cloudy pupil-less eye. What lies beneath? Only time will tell:

Hormel Compleats Turkey & Dressing - Unboxed

This is going to surprise you, but that was actually a picture of the food before I ate it, not after I chewed it and spit it out. To be fair, the turkey and gravy look close enough to the picture on the package, but the stuffing literally looks like canned dog food. Stay tuned for the next paragraph, where I actually put this stuff in my mouth! 1.5 out of 5

Taste: WHY DID I EVER PUT THIS IN MY MOUTH? After trying the roast beef Compleat, I never should have even opened this. The turkey was gritty, the gravy was chunky, and the stuffing was the worst excuse for a bread-based product I’ve ever tasted in my life – soggy, goopy, with no discernable texture. The benefit of this meal looking and tasting like dog food was that my dog had no problem finishing it off for me. 0 out of 5

    Now we know why Compleats always have such high value coupons in the Sunday paper…

    “The benefit of this meal looking and tasting like dog food was that my dog had no problem finishing it off for me” – Hahaha. So not even as good as this one, huh?

    Curious, how much was this? And who the heck is buying this stuff? Must be people fearing the Apocalypse and stocking up on food rations that will survive the end of the world.

    Crap! You need a way to change our rating after the fact. I accidentally gave this a 5 when I really want to give it a 1.

    Are the “looks” rated on accuracy or appeal? The stuffing does resemble dog food, but it doesn’t look drastically different from the depiction on the box.

    Usually accuracy, but I reserve the right to downgrade for drastically unappealing foods as well.

    The chicken and dumplings one is edible. You should review that one sometime.

    all these “compleats” are disgusting. i’ve been sent enough of them by well meaning parents to tell you to just quit while you’re ahead.

    i work at a pet store and we sell dog food that is 10 times more appealing than that grim looking slab of “turkey”.

    Thank you for taking into account that even though the food resembles the box, it also looks disgusting.That said, it doesn’t look to good on the box, does it? I’m shocked you purchased this one.

    Just tried one today. Absolutely disgusting in taste and appearance.

    It was like eating dog food. No taste. No texture. No nothing.

    What a ripoff.
