Serving size is 3 meatballs but look at the calories from fat- 210 per serving! No wonder they hide the fat to lean ratio!All beef, but mostly fat and don't forget the added breadcrumbs, water, whey, broth etc. so how many actual oz of meat is there? Not 12 oz.that's for sure!

    The potatoes au gratin. Weight is 2.88 oz. for 4, they cost $12.00 or $1.04 per oz! No nutrition is listed, no ingredients list which I think may be against the law. How much potato, cheese and whatever else is in there?

    The rustic baking vegs, 24 oz, no price per oz. ingredients: Potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery. Big deal.

    Is is all from Knight's link above. Seems the company deliberately leaves out info to make it difficult to compare or even determine how much these items cost per each.
    Preach it Sista!!

    I never send away for meat. I can see all I want/need @ my local grocery/meat market.

    I've never ordered any sort of meat and have no plans to do so.....purchasing something like meat sight unseen doesn't sound all the appealing to me.

    BTW.....I can handle being called a murderer for one of these.

    Really? Why are we all alive and in our later years? Vegetarians are obnoxious pests.

    We ordered them once many, many years ago and weren't impressed with the quality of the steaks. We often get really good boneless rib-eyes at places like Costco or in the local markets.
