As times and technology have changed so has Schwan’s, evolving to keep up with the demands of today’s consumer. Now you can place your order online, in person directly from your Route Sales representative during your regular visit or over the phone. Your food arrives via convenient home delivery, freezer bag drop off or UPS mail delivery.
I was given an opportunity to order a few items from the vast Schwan’s menu to try out an review. Since my husband and I have worked very hard recently to loose the last of our respective "baby weight" I opted for items from the LiveSmart line Schwan’s offers.
LiveSmart offers the following advantages:
- Delicious, real, better-for-you food
- Minimal additives or preservatives
- Moderate calories, sodium and fat
- Zero grams trans fat
We enjoyed the following items for several meals:
Oven Roasted Chicken Bites #494
Roasted Sweet Potatoes # 774
MicorSteam Baby Broccoli Florets # 870
Oatmeal Raisin Frozen Cookie Dough # 652
In particular I love how you receive food for more then one meal in each package. We received enough for two complete meals for our family of four, and a third meal’s worth of broccoli. Also, the cookies are break and bake style, so you can bake as many, or as few as you want.
The chicken was great, very tender and juicy with a little seasoning that didn’t require any sauce or additional spices. The sweet potatoes were crunchy on the outside and soft inside with just the right amount of sweetness. The broccoli featured mostly the florists, which is my favorite part of the broccoli with the best taste.
Since I work part-time we saved these meals for days both of us were working. We really enjoyed our Schwan’s meal(s) and appreciate the quality and ease of preparation. Also, the delivery was simple & straight forward.
