Today we're going to do our very first food review. One of the products we're going to do is something that my 8-year-old pulled out of the freezer section, when we were shopping in the store last week. It's called Pillsbury Toaster Scrambles. Now it's guaranteed to be made with scrambled eggs and real bacon, that's always nice. Well, we're going to find out if it's any good or not. So he pulled it up, oh dad, dad, can I have some of this? I am like, okay. So it looks real good. The picture looks delicious. The only thing that made me a little weary was there are six of them in here. Now I am a big guy, it's going to take probably five of these to fill me. But let's take a look and see how big these things really are.
Now, if you look at the cover here, look at the meat inside that piece of, pastry, that is some cheese and some egg, and look at all that bacon shown right there on the cover. We're going to find out if that's what they really look like. So let's open this up right now. Okay, take one of these out here -- we're going to do two of them. Like I said, I am real hungry right now. So, we're going to put that up at the side, oh yeah, yeah, look at those, those are falling apart right in my hand right there. Alright, so we're going to put these in the toaster, we're going to put them in just like you would toast, when they pop up they should be ready. Okay, they are ready now. Now beware and careful while pulling these out, they will be a little warm, make you sure you don't use a metal device, I've done that before, and it's not pretty.
Alright, we're going to move the toaster over just a little bit here. We're going to bring in our cutting tablet, we're going to cut this thing in half, we're going to see exactly what's inside this, if it looks as good as the box. Alright, just take a look here. Now, that's the inside, one of you can get in there and see that, that's the inside of all that bacon, and I am not exactly sure what this is, I think that's a piece of egg there, okay. And I think that's one piece of bacon right there. So that is not quite the picture that I saw on the box, just bring the picture of the box over here, a second here, and let's see how good. No, no, what do you think? I don't know, I am thinking it doesn't look quite like -- it really looks bad, it just looks nasty, I don't know.
But that's the toaster scrambles from Pillsbury. I probably will never buy these again, and let's just go all the way here. I am to cut this baby open, I want to operate in this. Let's see how good this really looks, here we go, oh yeah, there, that's; I am going to feed the dog, alright. So there you go, our first review, that is really not appealing at all. And I am probably just going to toss this. So Pillsbury Toaster Scrambles is not something you want to be purchasing, unless you enjoy eating that. That's our first food review ever.
