Dinty Moore Hearty Meals

It was my first time to try the Dinty Moore brand and honestly, I was a bit hesitant at first because I didn't know the brand. Until, I saw the Hormel Foods logo on the lower right portion and said, then this must be good. I was not mistaken.
The chunks of chicken tastes and looks like real chicken. All meat, no hint of skin nor bones, unlike some others I've tasted. The dumplings are more like thick square or rectangular pasta. Soft and there's no flour taste, if you know what I mean. In general, I thought it tasted like a thicker version of chicken noodle soup and I actually loved it.
One can can be good for two, or one if you're really hungry. I tasted the other half and I thought I liked the fact that it wasn't as salty as I expected. My mom, who ate the other half, thought it lacks saltiness though. So she added a little bit of soy sauce. Well, I guess we all have different taste buds. 
I guess one can tell if it's a good food when your plate is empty. My bowl is almost empty, and I for sure savored this last scoop. :D

I was not paid to do a review of the product mentioned above. I was given a sample to facilitate my review but everything was based on my honest opinion.

  16. I haven't ever tried that, and I can't believe it. I know I've bought it for my son's care packages, but never for me. I'll have to try it.

  22. We haven't tried that one but it sure looks good. But I think based on the empty plate, it definitely was good. :)

  25. I have never had this before, but I usually stay away from canned soup. Too much sodium.
