DiGiorno Italian-Style Meatball & Four Cheese Flatbread Melt

flatbreadmelts.jpgThis probably has the longest name of any product ever reviewed on Phoood, so Iíll just abbreviate it as DISMFCFM. Longtime readers know that I love everything DiGiorno. Until now, that is. The DISMFCFM is not worthy to carry the name DiGiorno. The flatbread is not very appealing and when cooked, doesnít look anything like the delicious, golden-brown picture on the box. But, I donít expect much in this regard as the DISMFCFM is intended to be cooked in a microwave (in fact, the cooking instructions say not to cook it in a conventional oven). Itís the filling that really kills the DISMFCFM. There just isnít any flavor. Each bite was a mouthful of bland. I thought that I had lost my sense of taste when I was eating it, because there wasnít anything there. Fortunately, my sense of taste is intact and it's the DISMFCFM that is the problem. Stay far away.

Yeah, this is pretty bad. I forget which version I tried a couple months ago, but whatever it was, IT WAS FLAVORLESS. The sauce was bland, needing seasoning. I like the concept, but the execution falls flat on its face.

There's a similar product from California Pizza Kitchen. I love their spinach and cheese flatbread melt. Mmm.

I made the mistake of trying this too. I agree, bland bland bland and the meatball has this horrible texture to it.

Man, I tried this thinking it was going to be the most delicious thing of all heavenly things on this planet. I mean look at it! dDo you expect something that delicous looking to be bland? I know I didn't. My advice: kill it with fire and holy water, then put it in a sack and drop it in the nearest river.
