It’s a Sandwich Showdown with #HotterPockets!

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  Travel expenses were provided to facilitate this review but all opinions remain 100% honest.

Because I work outside of the home, I generally have to pack a lunch or eat something super quick at home before returning to the office.  Without tons of time, my go-to lunch consists of a turkey and Swiss sandwich on wheat.  Exciting, right?  While it certainly does the trick, I get bored with this option and have the tendency to resort to fast food.

Earlier this year, Linzy from Crawfish Tales had the opportunity to represent Experimental Mommy at the Nestle Test Kitchens to take a sneak peek behind the scenes at Hot Pockets.  While we have shared a little about her trip, we can finally unveil the big news:  the new and improved Hot Pockets sandwiches are here!!

With all new varieties made with premium cuts of meat, buttery seasoned crusts and real cheese, lunch never has to be boring again.  Linzy had first crack at tasting some fresh Hot Pockets including Ham and Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza.  The new sandwiches are made with premium meats like 100% Angus beef, Hickory Ham, Signature Pepperoni and White Meat Chicken while the crusts have baked in flavor like the new garlic butter.

Are you ready for a Sandwich Showdown? How does a Hot Pocket stand up against your favorite sandwich variety?  For me, I am a huge fan of a good meatball sub.  So, I was very interested to see how the Hot Pocket Meatballs & Mozzarella compared to a Meatball Sub from a national sandwich restaurant.  Take a look at the below graphic:

I love that the Hot Pockets are perfectly proportioned so I am not tempted to go overboard which saves me calories in the long run, too.  While I am craving the Meatballs & Mozzarella, my husband is most looking forward to trying the BBQ Beef Hot Pocket which is made with 100% angus beef in a sweet and tangy bbq sauce covered in a crispy buttery seasoned crust.  My kids?  The Four Cheese Pizza made with Parmesan, cheddar and reduced fat provolone and mozzarella cheeses in a garlic buttery seasoned crust, of course.

Not sure if you will like the Hot Pocket variety?  Scared to try something different?  Hot Pockets is so confident that consumers will love the new recipe that they are offering a money back guarantee.  No questions asked, just visit the Hot Pockets website for details.

If your mouth is watering, come back in the next few weeks when I will be giving away an awesome Hot Pockets prize pack!  Which variety are you most excited to try?

    I have limited time to eat at work too. I’m going to try the new flavors and see if one might be a good substitute for eating out or my boring sandwich as well.

    With four growing boys in the house, I have found hot pockets to be the perfect {make it yourself} meal or snack! Thanks for sharing about the new and improved Hot Pocket!
