Zatarain's Frozen Entree Review (Smiley360)

Hello! I'm a Smiley360 member!I joined sometime in July and they selected me to join the Zatarain's Frozen meal try new things campaign!

Sometime while I was on vacation, in the mail came a card on how to share Zatarain's and earn smiles and a free product coupon!

So, last week when we went to the grocery store, I brought my free product coupon and looked for my surprise we found 4 or 5 flavors and they were on sale buy 1 get 1 free! So, my boyfriend picked out two flavors and I picked out two flavors (this ended up as 4 different flavors).  In the end due to the way the store actually does buy 1 get 1's it's more like I bought 1 and a half - and got 2 and a half free. Ohh ya!

This week for lunch, on different days, I tried the two I chose. Dirty Rice with Beef & Pork, and Jambalaya with Sausage.

The Jambalaya I ate mid-week. It smelled really good...and took a minute longer to cook than stated. At first it was rather tasty...but as I kept eating it, I was not quite as happy with it. I think it was because of the sausage they use, it was making my mouth feel really greasy and I did not like that. So in the end, this one was a 3 star frozen meal.

Today for lunch, I had the Dirty Rice w/ Beef&Pork, I have to say overall this was a much more enjoyable frozen meal. I liked it better, but I am not sure I'll be switching from the boxed Zatarain's to the frozen meals any time soon. I love their boxed items and have to say they taste so much better.

I do look forward to trying more products with Smiley360 and was greatly impressed with how quickly I was invited to join a free product campaign (some other sites, make you wait until you are a certain level). I did have 2 other opportunities, but I was not the right fit, and it's been a here's hoping another comes my way soon!

If you'd like a coupon to try Zatarain's Frozen Meals yourself, click here! They can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store, if I could find it here, I bet you can find it where you are!

And here's a complete list of Zatarain's Frozen Meal options! By the looks of it, we sure do not have the selection that could be available at your local store!
