Ronzoni Bistro Packs

Post by DangerousDave » Sun Aug 02, 2009 1:52 pm

Noticed these at local Food Dog. Close-out price 1.75. 4 diff. menu's. Picture on bag is actual size, 227g(3 meatballs). Not bad at the close-out price. No better or worse than MRE spaghetti. Boil-in-bag or microwave. Other menus, pasta based chicken.

They have them at Big Lots for $ 1.00. Someone else reported them being sold for $ .50 at Dollar Tree.

Heading to Big Lots tomarrow. The cat really digs the chicken ones. Cheaper than 9-Lives brand. :P

I noticed that my Local Dollar Tree didn't have them on their shelves. With regards to the other thread on these meals, somebody mentioned that these meals were a 1.00 USD a pouch. I still say that Dollar Tree stores differre from place to place.

That is why I waffled and said that they were "reported" as being sold at $ .50. I think that we all realize that when things start being sold at a discount, price and availability is going to be variable.

If I do see them at $ .50, I will buy a pile.

I was able to find these at one of our many Dollar Tree stores priced at 2 for $1. Bought a bunch of them and tried them out. The Penne w/chicken and the Linguini w/chicken (basically the two varieties with white sauce) seem to taste pretty good. The red sauces were okay but nothing to proverbially "write home about" The prices at our local Dollar Trees do tend to vary depending upon the store.

I stand corrected on these packs. I just stopped by the local Dollar store and sure enough the meals were there all right. Only two varieties: spaghetti and meatballs and Rotini with tomato and basil. But they were 1.00 each. So being in all fairness I retract my earlier post about Dollar stores. Will have to try them for lunch this week.
