Lean Pockets : Three Cheese & Chicken Quesadilla

When I purchased the Lean Pockets for tasting I bought two kinds. My first criteria when looking at which to buy was that the selection have some veggies contained inside the Lean Pocket. It should have been a clue that these wouldn't be very good when the only ones that I could find with vegetables were the Turkey, Broccoli and Cheese.

We tested the Turkey Lean Pockets first and the only reason that these were tried is because I felt that I owed it to the masses of people that eat these to give them a fair shake. I also wanted them out of my freezer.

It is possible to be worse than bad. Turkey, Broccoli & Cheese Lean Pockets are bad but Three Cheese Chicken & Quesadilla Lean Pockets are downright awful. If they make cardboard in Mexico this is what it might taste like. The cheese is salty and grainy and since it doesn't taste like cheese one has to trust that it actually is.

Leave Lean Pockets in the freezer case at the grocery store.

These get no forks at all.
