Lean Pockets – Pockets of Delicious!

I’m not exactly sure why, but I’ve always had a turn my nose up refusal to try any of the Lean Pockets (and Hot Pockets) frozen meals. In fact, I’ve been given free product coupons at conferences and I’ve always given them away.

But after I watched their funny soap opera spoof on youtube, As the Pocket Turns, I had to give in. Hats off to the hilarity, Lean Pockets! You earned yourself a taste test. Psssst, viewers choose the ending to the video.

And dang! I’m glad I finally gave in, because I tried the Pretzel Bread Spinach & Three Cheese flavor, and well, I loved it.

There are two pocket sandwiches per box, but one is plenty for me. They heat for 2 minutes in a special microwave pouch, rest for another couple minutes and then it’s chow time.

The pretzel bread was chewy and pretzel-y flavored and oh so good. Oh.so.good. And the filling, which is nowhere near as plentiful as the box cover art shows, is super tasty and hits the spot completely.

I really, really liked these, and I bought another box within a week. I can honestly say that these will become a part of my regular frozen meal routine.

As an aside, I spotted their New Year’s Resolutions survey, and what’s wrong with us? Look at some of those percentages!

Just 5-7% of us think we’ll stick to our goals! Wow. (But only a third of us make resolutions to begin with.)

The good news is that half of us think that sharing our goals in public will help us stay on track. That makes total sense! So if you’d like to share your goals, head to the Lean Pockets Facebook page and join in! Then grab that $1.25 coupon for a box of Lean Pockets!



Two lucky readers will each win $25 in Lean Pockets coupons (one coupon has a retail value of $3.99).

    Lean Pockets has come a long way. They offer such a variety now. I’d like to try the LEAN POCKETS Culinary Creations – Chicken Bacon Dijon. That is flavor, flavor, flavor.
