Walmart Shoppers Say These Are The Best Frozen Meals at the Store

Superstores and frozen meals already have a lot in common: they are both inherently easy. In one trip to Walmart, you can snag groceries, home decor, books, gadgets. And in one microwavable minute, the same is true for a frozen meal; without spending virtually any time or energy, you wind up with everything you need.

It would follow, then, that a frozen meal from a superstore is perhaps the easiest dinner option out there. Walmart's selection of frozen meals is vast, and far from unexamined. There is no shortage of online opinions about microwavable meals from the mega-grocer, and we investigated the robust message boards with a mission in mind: determining which of the many options is the absolute best.

Read on for our roundup of what Reddit users are saying the top five frozen meals are, then be sure to check out our list of the 6 Best Groceries To Buy At Walmart Right Now.


DiGiorno Ultra Thin Crust Pizza

This frozen pie gets points for ease—it may not get simpler than heating up a pizza—but fans also tout its health value.

As u/happyburger wrote on a thread devoted entirely to the best frozen meals, "DiGiorno Ultra Thin pizzas are amazing! 560 calories for an ENTIRE PIZZA and they taste great and do not feel skimpy or low-cal at all."

There's some variance here: DiGiorno makes their thin-crust pizzas in pepperoni, four cheese, supreme and more. Yey while the calorie counts may differ slightly between flavors, u/happyburger is not wrong. All of the thin crust options from DiGiorno's are impressively low-cal.

Amy's Frozen Bowls, Mexican Casserole

As an overall brand Amy's is a hit in the freezer aisle, and fans specifically point to the Mexican Casserole Bowl as a favorite.

"Amy's makes a line of Mexican bowls for <380 calories and they're the tastiest frozen food I've ever had," writes u/BurmecianSoldierDan, who was echoed by many commenters who passionately agreed.

"Amy's is the beeeeest! Most meals are decently low calorie (~300-400) and the food is delicious," says u/thepsycholeech. "There's also a nice variety."


Birds Eye Voila! Shrimp Scampi

Similar to Amy's, Voila is a frozen food brand that inspires loyalty for its entire product line. Many Reddit users spoke generally about their adoration—for example, u/-picardy-third- says, "They're mostly reasonable calorie-wise … We make them when we don't feel like making a full meal – all of the ones I've made have veggies, protein, and starch so I call it good!"

Specifically, though, the Shrimp Scampi received a virtual call out.

"I just recently tried Voila shrimp scampi," wrote u/​​BooksAreAddicting. "180 per serving and 2.5 servings per bag. They're super easy to make too, most just say dump everything in a pot, add some water, and then they're done in 15 mins or less."


MorningStar Spicy Black Bean Burgers

These burgers, which are apparently legendary, are getting called out on multiple frozen meal threads.

Reddit user u/paradoximoron says that they build their favorite weekly dinner around the meatless patties. Meanwhile, u/sohcgt96 says, "Not a vegan personally, but I will say MorningStar spicy chipotle black bean burgers you can get at Walmart are really, really damn tasty. I do like a good black bean burger when I want something different."


Lean Cuisine Sesame Chicken

Is it even possible to do a frozen meal roundup without including an offering from a low-cal frozen king, Lean Cuisine? Their sesame chicken meal, which retails for under $3, got a lot of hype on the frozen dinners subreddit, with users piling on comments confirming that it is their favorite of the Lean Cuisine line-up.

According to u/vxcta, the key here is texture. "Chicken had a nice texture, noodles had a nice texture, veggies had a nice texture, everything was nice & flavorful."

And, pro tip: a couple of users chimed in to add that this dish can be taken to the next level by adding any number of different soy or hot sauces.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

Reentry Anxiety Is Real - Why You May Experience It as Stay-at-Home Measures Ease

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious.
