Pizza Party...or pizza at 9pm after a long flight

I don't think I have mentioned this yet, but I have been invited to be a Freschetta Fresh Connection blog member. It's pretty much like I'm famous, without the money, or the fame part, but add in some pizza. They will be sending me some coupons to try various products and review them, and then offer them to you, my blog readers as well! I hope they realize that I am a very honest person. I can't lie. But so far, it's been pretty good stuff.

So....there's a contest on today's blog! Keep reading until the end and enter, and you could win a 3 piece Freschetta storage set (tupperware style set - they sent me one, it's awesome) and a coupon for FREE Freschetta by the slice pizza!

Freschetta by the Slice is essentially Freschetta pizza....but just one slice (I guess that's self explanatory), and is prepared in the microwave. I was a bit nervous about microwave pizza, but am never one to turn down free stuff. I choose the BBQ Chicken flavor (other flavors include  Veggie medley, Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom and 6 Cheese). I do have to say, one criticism was the flavor choice. I'm a bit of a traditionalist in this category and would have liked to see a simple cheese, or pepperoni. I get what they are going for, but I think they could be simplified a bit.
Jeremy actually tried the pizza last night when he arrived home from a bachelor party in Vegas. He did not get home until 9pm and it made for a nice little late dinner.
Here's the down and dirty:
 Pros:
* It did not taste microwaved at all, tasted quite fresh and crispy
*Chicken was surprisingly fresh and good
* Easy and convenient to make
* Portion controlled, really, should anyone eat an ENTIRE pizza? No. But a lot of people do. Instead, try a piece of pizza....with some veggies on the side!
* Portable
Cons:
* Flavors were a bit over-complicated. I would have liked something more simple.
* It was hard to find. Right now it is only available at Walmart in Minnesota. I went there to find it, but we are a Target family....so I had a hard time with that. :-)
*The BBQ sauce was fairly sweet.
Overall he thought it was a great option to have in the freezer when you need a quick lunch or dinner. Nutrition facts were a bit high for a lunch, but if paired with a salad or some other vegetable, it would be a great option.


GIVEAWAY!    WIN IT!
One lucky reader will win a smaller 3 piece version of the Freschetta storage system plus a coupon for a complementary Freschetta By The Slice pizza!
