Hungry Man All Day Breakfast

Via Thomas Strömberg, a review of Swanson's "Hungry Man All Day Breakfast" -- one of the funniest things I've read in quite a while.

Swanson, producers of some of the world's fattiest TV dinners, is seeking to take over the breakfast market with a new line of microwaveable morning meals. It's called the 'Hungry Man All Day Breakfast,' and it's threatening to turn people into manatees.

Now you may think I'm being overly obvious here -- everyone knows TV dinners are bad for you, right? This is true, but Swanson's new breakfast takes it to a level which previously could only be achieved by eating entire alternate universes made only of prosciutto.

By the way, the slogan of this TV dinner is, "I know what I like, and I like a lot of it."

This does not apply to the hungry-man dinner but your regular tv dinners ie roast beef...the meat is tough...have you changed your beef dinners... so my husband says and up to this last year has enjoyed all of your dinners but not anymore.

The box looked great, very enticing, i bought the Hungryman all day breakfast, took it home, popped in the microwave, and when finished, prepared my self for something that look very good. Ut oh, where was the pancake syrup ? the tiny packet of pancake sryup ? NO pancake sryup in my house, i panicked. Suddenly depression took over, here, i was eating dry, very dry pancakes ! Now Swanson, would it have been to much trouble to include a small pancake sryup packet ?? You do show it on the cover...shame..shame...Mind you , i typed after i finished choking on dry pancakes.

Dolly, how do 690 milligrams of cholesterol taste? I mean, I presume that, delivered all at once and in compact form, they must taste pretty good -- kind of like how fat generally tastes good to us?

Ok,So you think Hungry Man dinner right...you would think you would be able to find a picture of there meals online somewhere...alas no,my search goes on...DSTROI

Go fig,a typo in my letter... >:+P too funny...DSTROI

my son almost cried. no bacon !!! the bacon was missing. i am now trying to find swansons website, can't find it on the box. also i like the idea about putting some syrup in the box.

I too am trying to find an E mail address for Swansons. I was watching a commercial for their TV dinners and had a typical family(?) getting ready for dinner. Mom was taking out the dinners for her and the kids(one girl one boy) and dad walked into the kitchen.Mom made a comment that dad liked to wear her lacey underwear, what gives here? I have know idea what this has to do with TV dinners, let alone Swansons. I'm trying to E mail the company and can't find the address. Anybody know it?

Swanson's is now owned by the Campbell Soup Company. There's a "Contact Us" link on the main page.

Can you tell me the name of the actor that gets blown into the lockers in the hungryman commercials?

thanks Vic
