Okay I may be in a pissy mood but with all the economic changes that we're going through and having to worry about every little penny nowadays I feel like I was taken at the grocery store. I buy TV dinners for quick meals on nights that I just can't cook. Tonight was one of those nights. I usually get the Swanson Classic line but imagine my surprise when I opened the box tonight and there was only one chicken patty in it along with the mashed potatoes and corn of course but I thought there had to be a mistake. The box in my hand clearly stated chicken patties. I don't expect the meat portion to be large for a cheap TV dinner but if the plural from of the meat is mentioned isn't it normal to expect more than one piece? Well, since I thought it was a mistake I went to Swanson.com and looked at the product there. Lo and behold, they've changed the packaging to say chicken patty on there. I contacted the company about the packaging not matching but I bet nothing comes from it. You can tell also from the packaging that it was a change that had been made not too long ago because the meat portion of the dinner tray is huge. Why not make the packaging smaller. Trying to save money and fool the consumer is what I'm saying. Why not just keep the 2 pieces of chicken in the Swanson Classic Boneless Fried Chicken meal and up the price a little bit? I hate that I paid the same amount of money as always, expecting 2 pieces of chicken got one and had misleading information on the packaging. I hope I'm not the only person who complained. Oh and of course I've got pictures too. I contacted the company about this but I bet I'll never hear from them. Time to switch brands that are still consumer loyal.
The above is my package. It's hard to read but it clearly states chicken pattIES.
Swansons from their online site. Their package says chicken pattY.
