The rib shaped patty, smh. If I’m craving something like that Morning Star Farms has something similar but it’s soy. I have to thank you for the site, I’ve been on a road of self re-discovery and the journey is difficult but knowing I’m not along in my lifestyle change is a great help.

THANKS!

I don’t really eat frozen or packaged foods (never have) but I have a question: what would be the purpose of meat shaped…as another type of meat? This is beyond bizarre to me. Lol.

Oh well!

Carmen C April 16, 2011 - 1:42 PM

So you mean to tell me that’s not REAL rib meat? SMH…*tear*

Lala April 16, 2011 - 1:52 PM

Umm… what kind of meat is this? notice how the font gets smaller to mask the fact that we don’t know what this “rib shaped patty” is made of LOL also, where are the veggies? two starches… really? If I’m gonna fall off my new lifestyle wagon gimme some REAL babyback ribs, corn on the cob & collard greens!

Well you gotta admit, Lala, the corn and mashed potatoes are veggies….hopefully! lol! I hope it’s not “corn-shaped” or mashed potato “product.” Lol!

What the heck is “patty” since they refer to it where chicken or pork or beef should go….!!! And i will pass on the coupons for other terrible mystery foods, thanks!

For the reasons everyone has identified above, I don’t even walk down the frozen food aisle anymore. Reducing my consumption of sodium has made a huge difference in my weight loss program. Oh, and reading this blog has keep me many times from falling off the wagon. Thank you and can’t wait to get my shirt. Will wear it proudly.

Well….1) RIBS are not boneless 2) corn has no nutritional value 3) mashed potatoes and corn…are they both a starch? 4)it’s probably not even real pork O_0 lol

Danielle1 April 17, 2011 - 2:40 PM

yup, plus it’s a ‘patty’ so most likely its not really pork but some type of filler. What stuck out for me are the coupons there! I can see a low income person thinking ‘I can get a meal AND coupons ?! gimme 10!’
That’a kinda dirty to have coupons attached to unhealthy food. And best believe the coupons are for more crappy food.

Curlstar April 17, 2011 - 12:38 AM

O_O shaped? (sigh)…please pray for them…

Stephanie April 17, 2011 - 10:15 PM

Oh so many things…

1. I can’t see the nutritional facts, but I can only imagine the ridiculous amount of sodium in the meal…
2. “Shaped Patty Meal”? The FDA prohibited Banquet from calling it meat?
3. Ribs should have bones…
4. The fact that it’s never actually called “ribs” or “pork” without “patty” coming after it. You know it’s some weird oats filler or something…
5. The two starches.
6. The coupons on the front of the box for more unhealthy food.

Eva April 18, 2011 - 3:52 PM

I know the problem. Pork ribs don’t come in a box. The end.

Max April 18, 2011 - 4:10 PM

The meat (?) is uber processed, there are two kinds of starches and NO GREEN, not even as a “suggested serving”, and coupons for all kinds of stuff that is highly processed, high in fat & sugar, and is completely devoid of nutrients. Although the ketchup isn’t so bad, after all, according to experts working for the Reagan administration (yeah, I remember Reaganomics), it’s a vegetable. I guess you could just pour it over any of the other crap foods advertised on the box and it’ll magically make all the wrongness in them go away. The more I look at the pic, the wronger it looks. People eat this? :oP

Tiana April 24, 2011 - 12:16 PM

Um, rib shaped patty? is that the same thing they use for mcribs? lol

Tiera October 6, 2011 - 2:34 AM

I love how “Great Brands” is underlined yet underneath you see a line of other “Banquet” brands and some other processed stuff…lol….but, hey, you can save $4!!!! Hey y’all! I have an extra $4 in my pocket! Let’s have a “Banquet!” Lol!
