I attended the BlogHer convention last year in San Diego & had the opportunity to meet with a number of different companies to check out new products, visit with their staff to hear about upcoming promotions & coupons & get a first-hand look at a number of products so I could have more knowledge about them when I share with all of you. One of the companies that really stood out to me was Michael Angelos. I’d seen their frozen food entrees a few times in the stores but had never tried them out before. However, they had some samples of the meals at their booth & we got to check them out & I was definitely impressed with how they tasted. Not only that, but they had the family members who owned the company at the booth to talk directly with us about their products & their commitment to using high-quality ingredients & their system to guarantee freshness with their meals. They are owned & operated by a third-generation Italian American family and they are committed to making these meals different from the other frozen food entrees available on the market.
Now, I know that we would definitely prefer to have all the meals that we serve to our families be fresh & home-cooked every night, but we all know that there are those times when life just gets so busy & you need something quick – either you’re rushing out for sports practice, you’ve had a late night at work or just a chaotic day where you didn’t get a meal planned in time. What I liked about Michael Angelos is that they skip the warehouse step and ship their products to stores within 36 hours through a “made-to-order” process so this means that their meals are much fresher than many of the other frozen food companies.
Since trying Michael Angelos at BlogHer, we’ve now gotten their meals a few times for those busy nights & my husband & I both definitely think they are very tasty & the ingredients are very flavorful. They offer a variety of lasagnas, pasta dishes, calzones & other Italian favorite entrees like Eggplant Parmesan, so definitely a nice variety. You can find Michael Angelos products at a number of stores such as Safeway, Walmart, Fred Meyer, & more. Just head to the Michael Angelos website & check their store locator to see how many stores are located near you with Michael Angelos products.
Michael Angelos also is offering a “Come Cook with Us” sweepstakes where you will have the chance to win a weekend trip to Austin, where the company is based, to join Michael Angelos’ founder Michael with his mom, Sara, for specialized classes in the art of Naturally Italian cooking at the Whole Foods Market Culinary Center. You’ll be treated to a long weekend at a luxury hotel as you shop, tour the city and cook family-style alongside Michael and Sara.
