Lean Pockets : Turkey, Broccoli & Cheese

Wow, these are awful. I am surprised how bad they really are because they are so popular. The fatal flaw is that there is so much dough - a ratio of about 3 to 1 of dough to filling. The result is like eating the crust from the top of a frozen pot pie that's barely coated with the filling.

"Broccoli scented" is how one taster described this product. This is because there's barely four forkfuls of filling to each "pocket."

The same taster opined, "Why anyone would eat this is beyond me - it's like bad chocolate. Just the scent of chocolate and none of the flavor."

You would be better off buying frozen broccoli with cheese sauce and a hoagie roll to make your own sandwich. Healthier, tastier and less expensive.

These get no forks at all.
