Now as someone who runs a site called “Clearance Cuisine”, one would assume that I’m probably extreme couponer, but I’m actually a sucker for in-store and online contests. This also saves me from scissor-induced Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and aggravating grocery store cashiers on a daily basis. Not wanting to pass up a chance at winning something, I ended up playing an instant win game on the Stouffer’s Facebook page back in February, and hey, I happened to win a free frozen meal (well, a coupon for one that arrived a couple of months later).


We’re happy to let you know that you’re a winner in the STOUFFER’S Stuffed Melt and Soup Match ‘Em Up promotion! You’ve won a coupon good for a free stuffed melt and soup combo, which has an approximate retail value of $3.69. Congratulations! There’s nothing you need to do except look for your prize within 8-10 weeks.

After getting the coupon in the mail, I picked up the meal on a shopping trip with my dad to the local military commissary (hooray for dependent benefits) in March and it’s been aging nicely in the freezer since. Read the rest of this entry »

One of America’s cultural icons seems to be going to be going through a mid-life crisis. Rising to fame in the mid-80s, they’ve gone through several transformations that have shocked the public. In more recent years, they’ve been trying to spice things up and have been recently spotted using a fake British accent. No, I’m not talking about the Material Girl, it’s your good ol’ friend Chester Cheetah. The skinny mischievous cartoon character of your childhood has now been re-imagined as a suave, CGI cat not just pushing Cheetos, but prompting an “Orange Revolution”, coaxing Cheeto consumers everywhere to ruin clothing with their fluorescent orange cheese dusted fingers.

Now, I don’t know if someone else has done a combination pack of Ritz Bitz cracker sandwiches and mediocre meat, but I can tell you that it’s not special. At all. I mean they’re both two fairly unremarkable products. Buttery crackers with shelf-stable cheese and oily shelf-stable meat. Nothing special there. There’s also nothing particularly special about pairing meat with crackers with cheese. Heck, throw in a little juice box of boxed wine, and you’d have an all-American take on a French classic.

Oscar Mayer’s Snack Combos (not to be confused with Combos Snacks, a snack which everyone seems to love to hate) are one of the newest additions to the processed meat producer’s line-up. Along with its other preserved Oscar Mayer patrons  like shelf-stable Fully Cooked Ready-to-Serve Bacon and infamous “instant children’s meals” Lunchables, this is a product that you can ensure will stay unspoiled indefinitely. (Note: I bought and consumed this product several weeks ago, so please disregard the “Use By” date. I usually disregard them anyway.) Read the rest of this entry »

Oh Boy! Oberto Steak & Cheese Stick

Brand choices for preserved and processed meat sticks around here seem to be somewhat limited. Off the top of my head, I can think of local Seattle favorite Oh Boy! Oberto, Slim Jim, Jack Links and maybe some gas station varieties you’d never admit to eating while coherent or sober. It gets even more crazy when you bring in a product like cheese, which in my mind is a food that is always meant to be refrigerated. And people, this here isn’t just a regular beef stick. This is steak, it’s like a freakin’ vacuum-packed filet mignon for fifty cents.
Oh Boy! Oberto’s newest campaign uses the slogan “Eat Like An Alpha” but if your diet consists primarily of MSG meat sticks, you probably won’t be leading the pack (maybe in your World of Warcraft raid). This coming from a person who’s probably eaten a metric ton of beef jerky and spent collective days in front of a computer with glazed over eyes and my trusty headset microphone.

Valentine’s Day is coming up, meaning it’s a chance for all guys in relationships to redeem themselves for every thing they’ve screwed up so far. Chocolates will be flying off the shelves, roses plucked from grocery store floral displays, but no Valentine’s Day would be complete without that special romantic meal.

But who has time to prepare a homemade gourmet dinner these days? Lots of couples will just go out to eat or pop something into the microwave, but why not go all out? WisPride Lite Port Wine Cheese provides the luxury of a snobby wine & cheese experience (the ingredients list assures me that the cheddar cheese has been “aged over 9 months”) with the portability & convenience of a plastic tub. Spread some on a cracker of your choice (perhaps something fancier than a saltine) and seductively hand-feed some to your significant other in front of a roaring fireplace (Duralogs will do) whilst laying on a (faux) bear fur rug.
