Looks: See those shrimp? Yeah, neither do I – they’re, at best, 50% of the size of the shrimp on the box. The noodles and peas though (which are in there; they just sunk to the bottom) match up pretty closely with the packaging. 4 out of 5

Taste: Respectable. The shrimp were a little rubbery, and for being a “lobster cream,” I didn’t taste anything special in the sauce. The noodles were fine, but the peas, as all peas are, were inedible. 3 out of 5

    What’s the price on one of these?

    Did it “steam to perfection”?

    You are way too generous. Clearly the shrimp is a major portion of this; its discrepancy in size and quantity should make this rate a 3 our of 5 at best, since the cover is misleading.

    Looks like curry sauce. And they’re super-screwing people over in shrimp size. Your peas look wilted; theirs looks plump.

    I think they must pick it apart before they take their photo- that way they can pile all the shrimp on top so it looks like more.

    The top looks delicious.

    The bottom looks like Kraft Dinner – knock-off generic Kraft Dinner at that – with a couple of shrimp and some wrinkled, overcooked canned peas added. It reminds me of something my mother would have served in the 70s.
