Pepperidge Farm Herbed Seasoned Stuffing Mix
If you want really good, delicious, tasty stuffing, then do NOT buy Pepperidge Farm Herbed Seasoned Stuffing mix. The taste of this stuff ranks one notch above cardboard. Pepperidge Farm Herbed Seasoned stuffing is recommended by the same manufacturer of Swanson chicken broth, for an ad for Swanson chicken broth.
“Anybody that’s going on a road trip and doesn’t really want to get into a myriad of snacks is probably no one you want to get in the car with.”
I have tried other stuffing mixes before, including Stovetop stuffing and some other brand that I think begins with a K. I decided to try Pepperidge Farm one day when I wanted to enjoy some stuffing. The directions are typical for stuffing mixes: Boil water and margarine, remove from heat and then add the stuffing. Mix around a bit, then eat and enjoy.
Well, I ate, but I didn’t enjoy. You’d think that a name brand like Pepperidge Farm would be able to come out with a halfway decent stuffing mix. This glop wasn’t even halfway decent.
Instead of using water, I used the Swanson chicken broth. When you use chicken broth instead of water for stuffing mix, it dramatically enhances the flavor.
Well, considering how ultra-bland Pepperidge Farm stuffing was, WITH the chicken broth, you can imagine how horrendously bland this stuff must taste with just water. I assure you if you want to know how the Herbed Seasoned mix tastes, close your eyes and imagine finely-chopped bits of cardboard, swished around in some hot water…or chicken broth, for that matter.
What would this taste like? Well, that’s what Pepperidge Farm Herbed Seasoned stuffing mix tastes like. I can’t believe anyone out there could possibly think this is good stuffing. What an insult to any turkey dinner or ANY dinner you might serve this with.
I had it with a little beef and broccoli. I couldn’t even finish the serving. I kept eating it to see if maybe I was missing something, or maybe after seven or eight forkfuls, the flavor would then start coming through.
But no sir, no matter how much I ate, it seemed like one forkful of wet hot cardboard after another. I was hungry and wanted good stuffing, so I ate beyond the point that I realized for sure that Pepperidge Farm Herbed Seasoned Stuffing Mix is a real loser.
Three-quarters of a cup is 170 calories. That should have been the tip-off because usually, stuffing is extremely caloric. This was not a low-carb version, either. It was just a regular mix of stuffing. It was bland, bland, bland.
Pepperidge Farm has a few other flavors of stuffing mixes, and I will not try any of those, either. I have no reason to believe that the other flavors don’t taste like cardboard.
