Marie Calender's has awesome pot pies. They're heavy in fat, but they are good. Not bad for an occasional meal.

We just had the apple and Brie stuffed ones. You definitely need 2. With the humongous chicken breasts these days, too bad they can’t make them a bit bigger.

Naturally my local market decided to stop carrying it. I offered to buy a case, they wouldn't even have to open the box but they apparently have little interest in doing business and keeping their customers happy.
I was at Sprouts today and looked at this brand. They had about 8 kinds of CedarLane meals, and had a bin for the Chicken Souvlaki, but it was completely empty while the other bins were full. It makes me wonder if it's being discontinued.

I looked at a Stouffer's protein bowl today. It was a single serving and had over 1200 g of sodium!

Amy’s frozen meals, especially the enchiladas with the red sauce which is surprisingly good. PF Chang’s entrees. Screamin Sicilian pizza.

I can't seem to get a straight answer from anyone on this, the store where I buy it has said both that they're dropping it and that they're having trouble getting it, just as clear as mud yet I can still buy it so far. The only other product I've tried from this company was Chicken Fajitas and I wasn't all that impressed. From my experience with frozen dinners, the Souvlaki's a unique product, it has a very tasty feta/yogurt sauce along with Kalamata olives and at only 300 calories a good dinner when you're watching your intake.

They used to, that's what really irks me. I used to frequently buy the Chicken Cordon Bleu, it cooked well in the toaster oven and with a veggie or two made a tasty, easy meal. I would have happily paid a little more if they'd kept the size the same but as you say, it's now just not enough.

Stouffers and Marie Calendar’s are the best over the years.

We just drove 2 hours to get Trader Joe’s today. We had the Orange Chicken for dinner and it was very good.
