Chef Boyardee Whole Grain Abc’s & 123’s with Meatballs, 15-Ounce Cans

You know you love the delicious flavors of Chef Boyardee, but did you know that behind this real great food is a real great chef? Before there was Chef Boyardee, there was Hector Boiardi. And it’s time you met the real great chef behind this real great food. The Chef Boyardee brand is named after its founder, Hector Boiardi. Born in Italy in 1897, Boiardi immigrated to the U.S. in 1914, and followed his brother to the kitchen of The Plaza Hotel in New York City, where he quickly worked his way up to head chef. In 1924, Boiardi opened the Il Giardino d’Italia (The Garden of Italy) restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. It was a smash, and when customers began asking him for his recipes and ingredients, he got the idea to sell his culinary creations. Thus, an empire was born. Chef Hector opened a factory in 1928. He introduced his products to America a year later, touting his now-famous spaghetti dinner as a delicious and economical choice to serve to the entire family. Proud of his Italian heritage, Boiardi sold his products under the brand name “Chef Boy-Ar-Dee” so that his American customers could pronounce it properly.

I wish I hadn’t bought a case..

I bought this item recently, and amazon had a great price on a pack of 12.
Boyardee products are usually ok. I wish I had bought a single can of this
and tried it before I bought the case.

It said “pasta and meatballs in a tomato sauce” – I think they forgot to
put the tomatoes in the sauce. Didn’t taste anything like tomatoes. Wasn’t
even the right color (not red). Yes, it was definitely before the “best by” date.

Maybe I was expecting too much, but this was absolutely HORRIBLE.
I wish I could truly express my sincere dislike of this product.

If I could give this product zero stars, I would.

I wasn’t going to review these but this guy changed my mind

Come on, it’s chef boyardee. I ordered these and I was very satisfied with them. Then again I’ve had them before, and these are cheaper than 10 for 10 at the grocery store. They are a quick fix meal solution if you’re very short on time. Not the healthiest thing in the world but less sodium than most other canned chili’s, etc.

chef boyardee whole grain abc’s with meatballs

well, the sauce was better than i anticipated. but then again i’m not a canned pasta person. this product was purchased for my endentous 97 yr old mother and works well under the circumstances. the price was right. ring top lid for easier opening. more than 2 small meatballs was a shock. secure case packaging.
