Product Review: Schwan's Home Delivery (+ special offer for you!)

I'm sure everybody has heard of Schwan's - right? Schwan's is the home delivery food service - they have everything from ice cream to breakfast sandwiches to salmon fillets and everything in between! My Dad used to get Schwan's when I was in college and he'd stock me up with things I could microwave at school to help save money from eating out. But they've changed quite a bit since then! 

I decided to try out a wide variety of items - nearly all egg-free for my husband and myself to enjoy. (They have full nutrition on their site so it's easy to check.) I went for a few quick fix items, a few ready to eat and some that I could add to meals. I was pretty surprised at the variety and the prices - they have things at a wide variety of price ranges. They dropped off at my house and will drop off in freezer bags if you're not home.

I let Larry pick the ice cream he wanted - and it was a quick decision - he loves these Strawberry Sundae Crunch Bars (12 are $6.49). He pretty much ate one a day until they were gone. :-) Wouldn't you?

They also had these Blueberry Muffin starters (18 for $8.49) - you can use them in a couple different ways. If you use one in a muffin cup for small muffins, 2 for large muffins or bake them on parchment paper for a muffin top like I did. These were DELICIOUS!!! The thing I loved most was that the berries were big and JUICY! This wasn't like a boxed blueberry muffin - this tasted like I made them from scratch! Yum! (These were the one item that contained egg - poor Larry.)

One thing I wanted from Schwan's was quick-serve meals! I came across this Beef Mongolian Skillet Meal ($11.29) and decided to give it a whirl. I've tried many of the freezer meals like this before - but was pleasantly surprised. First - it's super simple!

This comes with everything you need in one bag - even the rice! You just pop open the bag - take out the rice and sauce. Rice goes in the microwave for 3 minutes, sauce goes in a bowl of hot water to thaw it out. While that's going - saute the veges & meat - then you add the sauce & rice. Voila - done! Literally freezer to plate in less than 15 minutes. That's what I need after a long day at work!! 

Then - it was actually good! There was plenty of rice and veggies - plus it was not only enough for 2 - we had enough for 2 PLUS leftovers for both of us! I would definitely get this one again - tasty, quick and affordable!

All in all I'm really happy with my Schwan's choices for the month. I also bought frozen seafood fillets - so I'll be making some fish soon as well - so stay tuned for more!

And I've got a special offer for you!
