The Best Things We Ate This Week (October 30-November 3)

Every week, the Sporked team sidles up to the tasting table and sets out to find the absolute best of the best packaged foods, the gold hidden in the grocery aisles. Each week we’ll bring you five standouts that truly rocked our taste buds and changed our lives—or at least our buying habits. Here are the best things we ate this week.

Banza x Tabasco “Hotter by the Bite” Pizza

I’m not telling everyone to buy this pizza. Most people could not handle it. I could barely handle it! That being said, Banza set out to make a spicy pizza and they made a very spicy pizza. The cheese is nice and melty and the crust is good (especially for a gluten free crust). If you are a spice lover looking to set your tongue on fire, grab one of these!

By Chef Ramsay Frozen Chicken Pot Pie

People have been asking us to review Gordon Ramsay’s frozen meals for a while and we finally did it (full ranking forthcoming)! The best is easily the chicken pot pie. The sauce is thick and flavorful, the chicken is plentiful, and, when cooked in the oven, the crust is beautifully crisp.

Taylor Farms Thai Chili Mango Chopped Salad Kit

This is one of the best salad kits I’ve ever tasted. It has so many mix-ins! Sunflower seeds and dried mango and crispy quinoa. The base is made from kale and shaved brussel sprouts, so it doesn’t get slimy as quickly as a romaine-based salad kit. The dressing is a mix of sweet, savory, and tangy. This is a perfect 10/10.

Pepperidge Farm Maple Syrup Holiday Graham Crackers

These are some of the best Goldfish I’ve tried. They are so sweet and maple-y. They’re delicious. These have a picture of Buddy the Elf on the bag and they truly make me think of the dessert spaghetti from the movie Elf in the best way possible.

Barnacle Foods Kelp Chili Crisp

I know this product is pricey, but it’s so interesting and tastes incredible. Why is it interesting, you may ask? It’s made with kelp. Yes, kelp! Like from the ocean! It’s so crunchy and a little bit oceanic, while still maintaining all the spicy notes of chili crisp you love. You probably can’t afford to buy a jar of this every week (I know I can’t!), but it’s a great splurge or gift!
