Chef Boyardee Cheesy Burger Macaroni

cheesyburgermac.jpgOne of the quickest meals you can eat is to dump a can of Chef Boyardee in a bowl, microwave for a minute, and eat. If youíre in a hurry or are just lazy, you can eat it cold out of the can. Too sophisticated to eat straight out of the can? Not me. Anyway, I spotted Chef Boyardee Cheesy Burger Macaroni on the grocery store shelf recently and picked up a can on sale for a buck. I figured that it would make a good, quick, and inexpensive lunch. I think they were going for the flavor of a cheeseburger here, but it really falls short. Thereís hardly any meat in it, and not much cheese flavor. The sauce tasted really familiar Ė similar to SpaghettiOs (oh yeah, another of my favorites). And the macaroni was, um Ö well, how good can canned, inexpensive, mass-produced macaroni be? For a buck, I wasnít too disappointed but Iím not sure if Iíll buy it again. Overall, Cheesy Burger Macaroni tastes okay, but just donít think that itís going to be like eating a cheeseburger.

Phoood rating: So-so

So it's basically Hamburger Helper in a can? Only not good. (Yeah, I dig Hamburger Helper; sue me.) Thanks for the heads up.

Wow and I thought I was the only one who ate Beefaroni straight out of the can.

Yeah. My boyfriend gets so freaked out when I eat from the can, but who wants to clean a bowl over some Chef Boyardee or some spinach or fruit or what-not. Not I!
