5Archer Farms Asian Inspired Sesame Teriyaki noodle bowl17Barf Bags1Noodles in poor-quality soy sauce. Top Ramen is better.
15
5Trader Joe's Chicken Gorgonzola610Barf Bags6Visually *really* unappealing, 'not as unpleasant as [you'd] think', good texture.

5Vigo Red Beans and Rice810Barf Bags8Cheap, filling, easy to make,
17
5Wolfgang Puck's Chicken and Dumpling canned soupNot ratedNot ratedBarf BagsN/AThere were two dumplings, about the size of a dime. Not nearly enough dumplings.
18
6Archer Farms Cajun-flavored Rice and Bean Bowl1.58Flying Pigs2Takes 7-7.5 minutes to cook, really bland. It's cheap-ass rice and beans.
19
6Thai Kitchen Tangy Sweet & Sour Noodles48Flying Pigs5Bland and did not rehydrate properly.
20
6Trader Joe's Potato Pancakes78Flying Pigs9Absolutely delicious, but they are not vegan and they have to be fried. (May not be kosher.)

22
7Chef Boyardee Macaroni and Cheese Microcup0.355Colanders1Didn't heat properly and a distinctly subpar taste.
23
7Kraft Cheesy Made Easy Triple Cheese (microwaved)15Colanders2Not so much mac-n-cheese as cheese soup, not as good as standard Kraft. Did *not* thicken.
24
7Annie's Macaroni and Cheese35Colanders6Lacks umami, but still decent. Similar to the standard Kraft.
25
7Kraft Macaroni and Cheese45Colanders8Classic mac-and-cheese, more buttery than cheesy

27

30
8Dr. McDougail's Pad Thai Noodle Soup1.756MREs3Good noodles, the vegetables didn't fully rehydrate and bland. Entirely uninteresting. 'It might keep you alive, but why would you bother?'
31
8Escalloped Potatoes and Ham (Thermostabilized)36MREs5Visually and texturally unappealing but useful and very portable. Would benefit from Tabasco and/or cheese. Not bad as MREs go.
32
8Annie Chun's Kimchi Soup Bowl.36MREs5Noodles came out well. No real flavor other than 'hot' and red pepper.
33
8Jennie-O Turkey Meatloaf4.56MREs8Not bad - not enough tomato sauce, but not HFC. Easy to prepare and kids will eat it.

41
10Thai Kitchen Spicy Thai Basil5.510Baby Pandas6Unappetizing appearance. Incredibly spicy. "That is the hottest thing we have reviewed on KUEC" Texturally appealing, once the noodles were seperated. "One of the better noodle bowls we've reviewed" Ursula: 5, Kevin: 6
42

54
12Hamburger Helper Microwave Singles Cheeseburger Macaroni58Doorknobs6"For reheated Hamburger Helper it tasted like Hamburger Helper." Beef not as rehydrated as one might hope.

65
14El Monteray Bean and Beef Burrito26Sacred Hearts3Two for a buck. 380 calories. Explodes when poked with the fork. Chewy, a little spice, archetype of the basic microwave burrito.
66
14Jose Ole Chicken & Cheese Chimichanga26Sacred Hearts3Exploded. Somewhat texturally distinct from previous burrito, but has the same microwave burrito taste.
67
14Amy's Southwestern Burrito36Sacred Hearts5Exploded. Whole wheat tortilla, tough burrito exterior. Tastes like health food and the same hot-sauce slurry as archetype burrito. Rated up for being healthy.
68

74
15Jose Ole Mini Tacos Beef & Cheese310Identity Discs3Has the microwave burrito taste. Corn shell. Needs more cheese. Not impressive. Teenage boy refueling food.

78
15Rex-Goliath ChardonnayNot RatedIdentity DiscsCheap wine.

80
16Kraft Stove Top Stuffing Mix79Special Snowflakes8Made in microwave. Nice and moist, may be a little mushy. Could use gravy. High points for nostalgia.
81
16Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil Parmagane Chicken and Pasta79Special Snowflakes8Pasta was a trifle mushy, but may be user error. The sauce was good. Good for 2 people, would need 2 sides for a family.
82
16Swad Navaratan Korma89Special Snowflakes9Mixed vegetable and cashew sauce with pineapple. Really good sauce. Hint of spice. Very good vegetable korma.

87
17Marie Callender's Scalloped Potatoes and Ham in a Creamy Cheese Sauce4.510Tiny Bubbles5Microwaved easily. Texturally okay, but tasted only of potato and bland. Kids ate it and didn't complain.

89
17Pilsbury Savorings Artichoke & Spinach Bite-size Bread Bowls710Tiny Bubbles7Cheesy and soft.
90
17Gabila's Famous Original Coney Island Square Knish710Tiny Bubbles7Potato Knish. Very squishy. Toasting would firm up the outside. Good with mustard. Has all the flavor but is missing some of the texture.
91
17Mackie's of Scotland Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper Potato Crisps810Tiny Bubbles8"They taste like meat coffee." Weird dark undertone to the flavor.
