I swear I do not work for Loblaws. I guess the Blue Menu stuff really appeals to
me and they have a ton of new products.
I thought this spelt one looked good. I was wrong. To be fair, I have never eaten spelt
before. Spelt is a whole grain and whole
grains are good for us.
I knew I was in trouble when I opened the flavour sack and
it smelled like cheese. Yuck KD flavoured spelt. I added about 3 cups of water to a medium
sized pot just like it said and then dumped in both pouches. I brought it to a boil and then simmered it
over medium for 20 minutes. The spelt
became engorged with water and the sauce thickened. I removed it from the stove and let it stand
for 5 minutes. It wasn’t pretty. In fact, it looked nothing like the
picture. The food designers who set up
the picture on the box deserve an award.
My concoction looked ugly and unappetizing, kind of like a pan full of maggots. It tasted ok-ish but I wouldn’t buy it
