Picky Eater? Blount's Family Kitchen to the Rescue!

Find their quick and easy refrigerated meals at Marino's & Tony's Finer Foods

My daughter is a picky eater. She would survive solely on kid’s food--you know, mac & cheese and hot dogs, spaghetti and meatballs-- if we would let her. Most of the time we can barely convince her to try something new, and she’ll only try a bite before she decides she doesn’t like it. Combine this with trying to make a meal quickly, and mealtime becomes a disaster waiting to happen. Blount’s Family Kitchen to the rescue! 

Blount's Family Kitchen is a New England based, family-owned company that has been around since 1880. They are a trusted producer for many leading food companies and fine dining restaurants across the country. With the highest trained culinary staff, and Todd Blount himself supervising, they created Blount's Family Kitchen, home-style refrigerated comfort meals that people crave and are ready to eat in just three minutes.

Why I love Blount's Family Kitchen meals

I love Blount's Family Kitchen meals and here's why:

  1. They taste delicious! These are not frozen meals. They are refrigerated, home-style, restaurant-quality meals. My daughter, the picky eater, actually said to me, "This is so good that I want to eat it when I'm full."
  2. Heat them up in the microwave in just three minutes! These are great for any time you're on the go and need a quick easy meal.
  3. They are full meals already prepared for you. Everything-- including your meat and vegetables--is in one bowl, ready to heat up for a quick, convenient meal.

Where to buy Blount's Family Kitchen meals

My family and I went on a shopping journey to find Blount's Family Kitchen meals at our local Mariano's. Most Mariano's are laid out the same, so they should be in the same location at your store too. Once inside, take a left and head towards the deli. They are actually super easy to find in the refrigerated case right next to the fresh-made sandwiches.
