CHEAP CHEAP Banquet Chicken fried rice and egg roll meals

Recommended Posts

Just discovered these meals and they figure out to only 4 pts and they're really good. Portion size is on par with other meals and these cost me all of 88 cents a piece. Thats great compared to the 2.50 to 5 dollars for other meals.

IMPOSSIBLE is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. IMPOSSIBLE is not a fact. It's an opinion.

I will put that on my list today to check out at the store. That along with a salad will make a great and quick lunch to take to work.

Calorie King shows this meal at 6 points each. I don't know what the box says, but I figured I'd put that out there. 6 points still isn't that bad, though.

Box says 1 meal=200 cal, 5 grams fiber, and 7 grams fat. Thats 4 pts. Either the box or the web site lies. hmmm

Everything is shrinking these days, maybe the Banquet meal did too:bcb_grin

I ended up buy one of these and I took the points value from the box. I contacted Calorie King and let them know of the discrepancy. Anyhoo, I had the meal for lunch and it was pretty good! I had to add some low sodium soy sauce to the rice though. It is high in sodium, so I'll have to up my water intake. Oh well. The eggroll was small but decent. It definitely satisfied my Chinese food craving. At just about $1 each, I definitely buy these again.

I'm so excited to try these- insanely low points and price for a portion-controlled version of 2 of my favorite foods! Thanks very much for the heads up!

I just bought some of these again after not finding them anywhere for a while and I think Banquet may have changed their recipe a bit because now the nutrition facts are 310 calories, 10g fat, and 4g fiber so now they are really 6 points. I was a bit saddened when I saw this. =( Anyone else notice the change in nutrition facts?

 

**Edit: I checked Banquet's website and it says they are 200 calories with 7g fat, and 5g fiber. I'm really confused as to which one to go by now. And it is the the EXACT same thing as what I use to get, its not any bigger of a portion.

Always go with what the label says as sometimes formulas are changed and not updated on websites.

I agree with Joanne! I noticed the nutritional changes a few months back. IMO, they are still decent for 6 points. I just make sure not to eat them before a WI! :bcb_grin
