Kashi Lemongrass Coconut Chicken Review

Kashi Lemongrass Coconut ChickenI recently purchased several Kashi meals on clearance at my local Wal-Mart for $1.69 each. One of those meals was the Kashi Lemongrass Coconut Chicken. Kashi describes this as, "Chicken with broccoli florets, carrots, and sugar snap peas are all served over our Kashi Seven Whole Grains and Sesame with red quinoa pilaf. It's then topped with a lemongrass coconut sauce and coconut flakes." Sounds good, right?

This was seriously, seriously BAD. When they say "Lemongrass", what they really mean is lemon scented Pledge. The lemon is so overwhelming that it tastes like you're eating a can of furniture polish. I'm a charter member of the clean plate club, but after the first couple of bites of this, I had to throw it away. It was that nasty. I'm sure the chicken, the grains, etc. would have been fine on their own but anything doused in lemon pledge is just not edible. The only good thing I can say about this meal is that it looked pretty - colorful and basically as advertised on the front of the box.

Each Kashi Lemongrass Coconut Chicken meal provides 300 calories from 8 grams of fat, 4 grams of which is saturated side (12% and 20% of the daily value), 680 mg of sodium (28% of the DV), 18 grams of protein and 38 grams of carbohydrates which includes 7 grams of fiber (28% of the DV) and 6 grams of sugars, along with 40% and 20% of the RDA for Vitamins A and C respectively.

I was happy to pay only $1.69 for this meal - but after tasting it, Wal-Mart could decide to give Kashi meals away free in the future and I would still avoid the Lemongrass Coconut Chicken like the plague and instead stick with Lean Cuisine Lemongrass Chicken. Still, others have raved about this meal, so tell us your thoughts ... love it? hate it? Should I give it a 2nd chance?
