Dear Michelina,

I wasn’t expecting much when my local grocery store did a 10 for 10 deal on your frozen meals, but I ponied up a 10 spot all the same. Sometimes a deal that looks to good to be true is still just a good deal that cynics miss out on!

I cooked up some Chicken Alfredo meal along with some little egg roll things (yeah, not something I would normally eat together either!). I didn’t expect to be filled up for a measly two bucks! The other cool thing is the next day I was only slightly hungry so a quick mac & cheese snack just hit the spot! $1 is bit steep for simple mac & cheese, but sometimes you just pay for convenience.

Anyway, as long as these meals stay so cheap I will continue eating them. I hate when a product is introduced, I get to liking it, then it goes way up in price. This is what happened to me with Diet Rock Star Energy drink. I loved the stuff when it was a buck a can, but once they hit two bucks a can I knew they were just trying to screw me and take advantage of my burgeoning addictions.

You guys won’t do this, will you?

I’ll go on the record as liking TV dinners. It’s a guilty pleasure. They’re cheap and easy. What’s not to like?

They also sent me coupons for two free ones. Yum! Score!
