Marie Callenders Meals - Taste and smell was horrendous
Marie Callenders Meals - Taste and smell was horrendous
I microwaved the meal according to instructions. When cooked I took the first bite and had to spit it back out because of the awful smell and taste. Don’t have even a clue what it was but could not even think of eating the rest.

The frozen meal most likely had been thawed somewhere along the line, most likely at the retail store and became rancid. If you pay attention and watch how some store employees leave carts full of frozen items just sitting in the aisles for long periods of time you will understand how frozen food can go bad.

It used to be that grocery stores would stock in the night for the next day but now, due to cost cutting and the new "just in time" inventory management system stores now use the stocking is done in the morning of, resulting in aisles being crowded with carts, etc. while the employees take their sweet time stocking the shelves, etc.

You can contact Marie Callendar and complain. They may send you a coupon for cents off or whatever.

Marie Callenders Meals in District 1, Tennessee - See if it gets better

My favorite is Dutch Apple Pie. This last one I bought was unbelievably bad. The crust was smaller than the tin. The apple pie itself was 2/3 as opposed to a full amount. The topping was more than usual but the actual pie itself was way less than the usual. Very disappointed in what is usually my favorite. If my next one is just like this one then Marie Callender's items will completely be deleted from my list. Which is sad because I always recommend it. But if things have gotten to be less, than I will find another place to get the same items.

Marie Callenders Meals - Not the healthiest option

2.3
Details
Marie Callender frozen meals are not the healthiest option when it comes to convenience meals. Nearly all meals come with gravy, which is usually high in salt or fat or both. All meals are high in fat. Many contain processed meats and deep fried items.

Marie Callenders Meals - Country Fried Chicken & Gravy

My wife & I both had a chicken & gravy dinner. The corn in both of them was tough and had no flavor. It tasted Field corn. We use your frozen dinners when we are short on time or in a hurry. This is the first time we have had a problem.

Marie Callenders Meals in Indianapolis, Indiana - Country Fried Chicken & Gravy

This dinner might have been good if it did not have so much pepper in it. I won't buy it again. I am a senior and I don't like all that spicy foods. If people want all that pepper they can add it. Sad

Marie Callenders Meals - Marie Callender's food

I have been a fan of Marie Callender's food for years. However, my past few purchases have been very disappointing. The last two pot pies I purchased had very little ingredients in them...there was such a small amount of gravy that it tasted dry. I love your Razzledazzle pies but the last one I purchased tasted awful. I will not be purchasing any more of these products.
