Rated 4 out of 5 by mac202 Amazing Taste, but Not Cost Effective
Item: Cheeseburger Flavors
Brand: Hamburger Helper

The quality of the product itself was very good. The cost per amount really wasn’t.
The cooking process of the meal is easy and efficient. It comes with quick steps and it a fast meal that tastes good. Hamburger Helper is very well known for that. As a tip, if you keep the grease from the meat and add it to the mix during the noodle stage it tastes even better, IMPO, because the package doesn’t have as much spice and kick as it could.
The finish texture, if cooked for the correct time, it very good. The noodles do get a bit soft and larger than planned, if you stop too early they get hard and stiff and don’t cook all the way, but that is a price you pay for swift meal and quick boil noodles.
The taste is always amazing.
The only real problem I have with product, which is what kicks it down to a 4 out of 5, is that there isn’t enough product in it. On TV they always show a family of 3 to 5 enjoying it as a meal and having good portions but honestly it doesn’t make enough for two to eat fully. At almost two dollars a box it really isn’t an affordable meal. I only get them when they are on sale in multipacks, or are discounted at the Grocery Outlet because they are a few days past their sale date; since they are a dry food they are still good for a while after their sale date. (I don’t feel this way about all food though; I honor the Milk sale buy dates like they are federal laws.)
I would suggest it to a friend, but not to a friend who has a large family, or even a family of more than two. I also wouldn’t suggest it to a male friend because my male friends, mostly all in their 20’s, could eat two boxes in one sitting and that isn’t cost effective.
