FOOD REVIEW: Blue Horizon Organic Spring Rolls

While at Grocery Outlet I found Blue Horizon Organic Spring Rolls.
Spring rolls are my favority quick work meal. Since I sit in an office all day I like quick meals I can heat up and snack on. The brand I was buying before was at Costco (not sure if they were vegan though) but even though I begged for months they never stocked them again. For $1.89 a box I thought I'd give this brand a try.

Here's the list of ingredients:

Organic Green Beans, Organic Cabbage, Organic Palm Oil, Organic Tapioca Starch, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Cilantro, Organic Soy Sauce (organic soybeans, organic wheat, salt, water), Organic Cayenne, Salt. Wrapper: Organic Wheat Flour, Water, Salt, Soy Lecithin.

Allergens: Wheat, Soy.

The Rating:

The spring rolls come 8 to a box and supposedly 2.5 servings per box! Not sure about that, springs rolls are pretty small. That puts this little lunch at 275 calories, 10 grams of fat (3.75 saturated fat), and 7.5 grams of protient.

Since I'm at work I don't have the option of deepfrying these guys, which of course is the best way to have them. Instead, it will be the microwave.
Even deep fried these wouldn't be that much better. I can taste the lemongrass but that's about it. A couple of them were mostly wrapper and hardly any filling. After about four of these I couldn't eat anymore. The strong lemongrass taste and the greasy feel in my mouth was nasty. I think I'll toss the rest and the other box I still have in the freezer.

Oh well, I guess I need to quit being lazy and make some myself.
