Hot Pockets Pepperoni & Three Cheese Calzone

hpcalzone.jpgHow good can a frozen meal cooked in the microwave taste? When you only have three minutes to heat something up, you could certainly do much worse than Hot Pockets Pepperoni & Three Cheese Calzone. At 8.5 ounces, itís a good size for either a large snack or a small meal. To cook it in the microwave, you use a crisping sleeve, which is supposed to give it a crispy crust. It didnít work so well Ė the crust wasnít soggy but it wasnít very crispy either. Those crisping sleeves never really seem to work as well as advertised, do they? Anyhow, the pepperoni and cheese filling tasted good, and there was plenty of it. The herbed cheese crust was also very tasty, even if it wasnít as crispy as I would have hoped. All in all, itís a good choice when you want to eat in a hurry.

I have not had this item personally but I like my regular hot pockets extra crispy and you can achieve this by cooking it an extra 30 seconds or so. For this larger item you may have to cook it more than that, just keep an eye on it to make sure the filling isn't starting to come out ;)

I've had these calzones from hot pockets and was not impressed at all. The taste was bland and hum drum, especially for the amount of calories they pack into those things. If I didn't know any better I would say you were being paid to say they were anything more than sub par.

i, like phill, was not at all impressed with the calzones. the calzone was not all that tasty, and i didn't understand why there was sauce in it if it's a calzone. that's one of the main reasons i love calzones; i dislike pizza sauce. i prefer the paninis that they make. [:
