    Hot Pockets - Am I now a food snob?

    Hot Pockets - Am I now a food snob?



    Ewwww, I was hungry and really need to make a trip to the store so in desperation to grab something quick to eat, I grab a ham and cheese hot pocket. As I try to slowly choke down this gooey bland horrid tasting pocket of processed dough, I remember that 20 years ago when my husband and I were first married I ate these things all the time and loved them!

    As I am trying to wash the nasty after taste of this gross pocket thing, I imagine how easy it would be to grab a pillsbury crescent roll, some fresh cut canadian bacon, and real cheddar cheese, a dash of salt, maybe even another spice to give it some zing, folded into a nice little pocket.... oh my now that would be good, and still quick --- okay -- maybe not 2 minutes in the microwave quick but certainly a better lunch for my family than this garabage.....

    So now, I think I have become a food snob, the more I try a TV dinner or frozen burrito, or a hot pocket or chicken nugget, I crave a REAL cooked meal in place of it.

    Please tell me that I'm not the only one.

    Hot Pockets only taste really good when I haven't eaten for 3 days and am starving! I broke open an old bag of frozen Tostino Pizza Rolls this weekend and it felt like i was eating cardboard with tomato ketchup.

    There are some good frozen foods out there though...I bought some very meaty and delicious battered halibut recently from Trader Joe's...really yum!! But at the same time there are a ton of overly processed frozen fast foods too.

    Making a little effort and doing something homemade, or even "partly homemade" is a way better option!

    I've never had a hot pocket so I can't comment on that one, but I do have to agree with @cali baker. Trader Joes' frozen food is pretty much the only frozen food I'll eat. They have some great stuff. Otherwise, fresh wins out every time!

    I will have to check out Trader Joe's Frozen section. Last time I was at the store I was looking for corn dogs and I saw these foster farms pancake sausage egg cheese dogs- while at first my initial thoughts was like yum,.....but the more I thought about it I was like

    How in the world is the egg and cheese put in here, the ideas that come to my mind are not pleasant....

    Now, I do like some stouffer's frozen stuff, like the mac and cheese is good stuff!

    I'm sure looking at the ingredients would be quite an experience on those ones!! Good lord.

    I remember a few years ago one of my college roommates bought a box of those (I think jimmy dean?) breakfast croissant sandwiches. I saw them in the freezer and picked up the box to read the ingredients. I almost passed out Hot Pockets - Am I now a food snob? I don't know if they've changed since then, but MAN. It was rough.

    Omg I just found the ingredients here: Jimmy Dean | Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

    Dang and I used to like those sandwiches. I should start looking up ingredients more often. Heck I do it for dog food all the time why not human food?
