AVAILABILITY: In the frozen food cases of supermarkets nationwide.

COMMENTS: We tried the blueberry muffins and weren’t impressed with the meager number of berries. And we thought $1 per muffin was a lot to pay. “Surprisingly moist.” “There’s a subtle cardboard taste.” “Microwaving makes them better.”
WOULD YOU BUY IT? No, mainly because of the cost.
