Couldn't agree more! I've tried other Marie Callender and was terribly disappointed.

The restaurants were good and I bought various frozen dinners thinking they would be good. NOT! My latest disappointment is the Shrimp Fajita. The tiny little shrimp (4) were the smallest cocktail shrimp.

Not satisfying at all. I will not be buying any more. Whatever happened to your company is a shame and you should be ashamed .

Try some Stouffers meals. Much,much better

I purchased a frozen lasagna from the grocery store. It had what looked like bugs in it - black, oval-shaped objects that were not in the picture on the box.

Horrible

I used to get the frozen dinner when my hubby was out of town. Talk about a change in quality.

These are absolutely horrible. These used to be awesome. But now you're going cheap, and it shows. I will never ever purchase your products again.

Waste of money.

And I'm still hungry as I could not eat this disgusting food. Do not waste your money.

Discovery of Marie Callenders frozen meals

Marie Callenders Meals - Discovery of Marie Callenders frozen meals

I just discovered your frozen meals after purchasing your chicken pot pies at Costco. I was looking for a couple frozen meals I could prepare several times a week when I didn't want to cook.

I was pleasantly surprised. Large pieces of chicken and carrots, tasty gravy and nice crust. I started looking for other products and found your key lime pie in single portions, 2 to a box. I loved the tartness of the filling for a bite of dessert I could pop out of the freezer.

It's been months since I purchased your pot pie so yesterday I bought your Shepherds pie.

I thought about making this but your's had a tasty gravy, veggies. I prefer to heat my meals in the oven. When heating meals with potatoes in the microwave, Excellent potatoes seem to come out very runny, soupy. I look for frozen food that has a good texture, I love well made, flavorful gravy and I love to cook but it's so nice to take a break from cooking and dishes.

The only thing I would change is I would lose the bottom crust on the pot pies.

But I am not a big bread person. So glad to have discovered your products.

Hello, our family was enjoying your chocolate pie that we thawed from being frozen. I just took a bite of what looked like a chocolate shaving.

It was actually a piece of black plastic.

This was directly on the cake. I have a picture.

I had a dinner date

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Marie Callenders Meals - I had a dinner date

Well, I invited a friend over to dinner knowing that I can't even cook, so then I had to go looking around grocery stores for inspiration. Came across these Marie Callenders beef pot roast bowl meals and decided to try and pull it off as if I made it myself. So I bought a total of four as they have so very little amount in the bowl it would be too ridiculous to pretend as if I cooked it myself if I didn't have enough so yeah lol Its deceptive, but I can't cook anything and I wanted to impress my guest but these meals are so bad I wound up embarrassing myself at the dinner so even tho I spent time cutting up bell pepper and extra onions and dicing some garlic the meal tasted disgusting the beef wasn't tender the gravy had an unpleasant aftertaste there were way too many carrots and potatoes, and we wound up basically only eating the jasmine rice because the main course was nasty and unpalatable.

Yeah I agree those meals are complete trash sorry for your bad experience.

Guest

I haven't tried that particular one, but their meals fill me up. I don't have to go for 2 at a time.

1. why didn't you do a test run and try it ahead of time? 2. why didn't you just go to an Italian restaurant and get a pasta and garlic bread to go?

BTW: to make that particular meal, you don't have to know how to cook. All you had to do was throw all the raw ingredients in a crock pot.

The pot pie looked like it defrosted and the inside went to one side. As well as half if not more of the crust was off.

Nit what I expected from your pit pies. Very disappointed Information from box

I had the whitest meatloaf I have ever seen. Mashed potato soup with what looked like watery drops of ketchup everywhere.

The most disgusting frozen meal ever. Almost $4.00 of just trash because thats where it went.
