As has been previously mentioned, I have foresworn the Roach Coach route and stocked up on HOT/LEAN POCKETS. On sale for 2/$5 at Albertson's this week means I ended up paying $3.75 for three lunches this week - wotta deal! (Actually, I always have a soda, too, but I never count that. Add 25-27 cents per meal if you like)


MONDAY: CHEESEBURGER


TUESDAY: MEATBALLS & MOZZERELLA


WEDNESDAY: BARBECUE


Total calories: 860 (290 + 280 + 290) Would you like to learn more? (leanpockets.com)

I can ALMOST eat one of these without burning myself now! HOORAY

Wow, we must have bargain Pockets here in Maine. They're only $1.99 at Shaw's. I am partial to the meatball ones. Good call in eschewing the Coach de Roach, sir.

Ah, Pockety goodness. I remember before my hours got cut I ate Hot/Lean/Croissant Pockets for lunch just about every day. Now that I only have half a job, I get to eat lunch with my wife every day. Pretty decent trade-off. (Well, except for the whole small paycheck thing.)

I do have a box of Hot Pockets' Pot Pie Express in the freezer waiting for me to try.

I just went to albertsons.com and checked - apparently the sale price was actually 2/$4. (And by that I mean "two boxes," not "two Lean Pockets," just in case anyone's confused - so it comes out to a buck a pop).

But then again, I can't say I'm surprised that prices are just a wee bit higher in Santa Clara, the cradle of the Silcon Valley, than over there in the Middle of Nowhere. ;-)

Hey! We are nowhere near the Middle of Nowhere. In fact, we are nowhere near the middle of anything.

Ugh. I can't believe you bought the Barbecue ones. Those are nasty. The sausage egg and cheese breakfast ones, and the jalapeno steak and cheese ones aren't too bad.

According to the nutritional information supplied on the website for the Chicken Cheddar and Brocolli pockets:

1 serving is approximately 125 grams (4.5 ounces). Within this 125 grams there are 7 grams of fat, 11 grams of protein, and 39 grams of carbs. This all adds up to 57 grams.

Since everything besides water and minerals would seem to fall under either fat, protein, or carbohydrate, I'd really like to know what makes up the missing 68 grams.

I've recently run across this problem with Pilsbury Pizza Pops and called their support line to try and find the answer, but they've been unable to provide any kind of sufficient information on this.

The best I can come up with is that the 68 grams is made up of some water and salt, but mostly preservatives and other chemicals? Anyone have any better ideas?

I'm partial to the Cheesburger Lean Pockets myself, and I'm not even supposed to eat beef (OMG I'm going to hell).

You're pretty safe. I don't think there's any actual beef in those.

They didn't "go" anywhere. You are confusing weight with content.

The Fat - protein - carbs breakdown just you where the calories of the food come from, not how the weight is broken up. Fat has 9 calories per gram, the other two have 4 calories per gram.

You said it has 7 - 11 - 39
7 fat = 7 * 9 = 63 calories
11 + 39 = 50 * 4 = 200 calories

Soooooo, those pockets have 263 (+/- 5% (250 to 276)due to rounding)calories a serving, right?

Thanks that does seem to make sense. And yes 260 calories is the answer they give. So you do seem to be right and I appreciate your setting me straight on this, it has been bugging me for a while.

Yet I still can't help but be troubled by the fact that grams are still grams whether relating to nutritional content or weight as far as I can figure. Maybe I'm just dense but there should be something to account for where the non nutritional weight is in these things.

You are probably right about it being water weight. I believe the protein weight is dry weight.

Man, I've never even had Hot Pockets. They don't have them here, I have to settle for Pizza Pops. I'd like to try a Hot Pocket (because I am a big fatass, of course).


I also have a bizarre curiosity about Dilberitos.

That sale Zed mentioned might be a nationwide thing. Giant Foods out here on the east coast has the whole "Pocket" famly on sale for 3 boxes of two for $7 w/ tax ($1.17 each, not bad)
