I had the Tai Pei Garlic Shrimp the first time couple weeks ago and thought it was good so I gave this a try. It's hard to believe they are made by the same company. I didn't give the container as close as an inspection as I might have. The cover photo is somewhat misleading in that about half the product is converted white rice. Some of their other products are more obvious about the rice content. Second, this is SWEET. At 10 grams of sugars per serving and technically three servings per box that is about equal to 2 tablespoons of sugar in a cupful of vegetables. It's Pepper Beef but any pepper flavor is lost in the syrup flavors. At 14.2 ounces this is suppose to have three servings. Maybe as a side dish, but with most of it rice and MAYBE two ounces of seasoned meat for the box, it's not the best value. I had the whole box which is only about 600 calories total and 100% of recommended sodium for the day. In all you are better off with a Smart Choice product for about the same price or a cheaper product for the same quality. It's convenient, but there are better options out there.
