Score: 6.9/10

I had a coupon for these things at BJ’s and I figured I’d give them a try.

The first thing you should know is that these are not microwavable. That means that you’re going to have to preheat your oven and bake them for around twelve minutes (as recommended by the packaging). That’s not a long time, but it’s too much for me. For me, frozen food is food of last resort. It’s food I eat when I am at my most lazy and desperate. I want to plunk my food in the microwave, hit some buttons and get a mediocre product that will satisfy my hunger. Preheating an oven for fifteen minutes before putting the food in for another twelve minutes and then putting on a glove and taking the hot tray out while trying to avoid burning myself is simply too much hassle. I will not be purchasing these things again for personal consumption. I would buy these again to feed some guests at a party though.

The taste is pretty good. Specifically, the cheese they use is pretty good. It’s a blend of mostly cream cheese and parmesan cheese. It’s taste like a mini Philly cheesesteak in spring roll form.

Another thing to keep in mind is that according to the back of the box, this isn’t true steak but “fabricated steak.” Not sure what that means, but it tastes like it’s mostly ground beef. It’s hard to tell with such a heavy cheese flavor.

Overall, these things were pretty good. The taste is there and I think these things would be nice to serve at a small party. I would not buy them as an anytime-snack for myself though. There are simply too many competing frozen products that are equally tasty but that do not require preheating my oven.
