Jimmy Dean Delights Review

I don't normally buy frozen sandwiches, but I had an from for a free box of Jimmy Dean Delights. I chose the Hickory Smoked Turkey Breast. The box contained two turkey sandwiches with applewood-smoked bacon and cheddar cheese on slider-sized honey wheat buns.

Frozen sandwiches just do not appeal to me, so I was surprised that I actually liked these. They had a very good flavor, and tasted fresh despite being frozen.

I was also surprised that they didn't taste as salty as I expected a frozen meal to taste, especially since two sandwiches contained 810 mg of sodium.

According to the package, one serving (two sandwiches) contains 290 calories, 9 grams of fat (4g saturated fat, 0g trans fat), 40 mg cholesterol, 34g carbohydrates including 3g of dietary fiber and 5g sugar, and 21g protein. They also provide 20% of the daily allowance of calcium and 15% of the daily allowance of iron.

It should be noted that both sandwiches are packaged in plastic together, so if you only want one, the other has to be rewrapped and placed back in the freezer. Two sandwiches heat in the microwave in 75-90 seconds.

I enjoyed these little sandwiches very much, and they made a very quick and convenient meal on a rushed day.

I guess they would be good for work when I'm in a hurry. But the idea reminds me of childhood vacation. My mom would make stacks of sandwiches and freeze them. We did not stop and pay to eat!!!!
We got sick of those sandwiches. lol

Wow I never would have guessed this for anything better than food for the hogs. Shocking!

That's funny. I ate these the morning I left on vacation.

We would have agreed with you by the third day of our childhood vacations!

That is funny. I'm guessing they don't have lettuce in them. My mom did learn not to put lettuce in sandwiches she was going to freeze.

I have had these and they are not bad at all to be a frozen sandwich. I think that I should make more homemade ones and freeze them for my kids to have.

They sound delicious and sinful. I'd probably enjoy them very much.

That is a lot of salt even so. Once in a great while I do buy a box of the Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches, but normally we don't eat any kind of white bread product, so we don't have them very often. It is very convenient that they keep a long time in the freezer.

That would be a good idea. I'd probably be more inclined just to freeze bread and lunch meat to keep it from going bad.

I did enjoy them, but they're probably not something I'll buy again because of the expense--unless I got a really good deal.

I don't like the taste of a lot of salt in processed foods, aside from the nutritional disadvantages.

paigea Ewwww! Slimy lettuce! Yuck. I bet she figured that one out REAL fast.

LoudMan wrote on October 22, 2014, 7:55 AM

Salt (and sugar) are the go-to preservatives of the food industry. It doesn't always reflect in the taste, though.

paigea wrote on October 22, 2014, 1:48 PM

We still had to eat the sandwiches. Just open up and through away the lettuce. lol

OldRoadsOnceTraveled wrote on October 23, 2014, 12:22 AM

Nope. No lettuce. Just turkey and cheese.

OldRoadsOnceTraveled wrote on October 23, 2014, 12:24 AM

I hate it when it does. Gross. What gets me is when I see somebody eating out and grabbing the salt shaker to rain down more salt on their already salty food before even tasting it. Yuck.

LoudMan wrote on October 23, 2014, 12:49 AM

It's us smokers who tend to use more salt and spices. Our tastebuds are destroyed by the smoke and we need more salt to taste it. There are some wonderfully salty flavors I like - a lot. But I see your point, also. Restaurant food is pretty salty to begin with.
