Through the years I have discovered that Walgreens Pharmacy is a great place at which to purchase tasty and inexpensively priced frozen food items. Over the course of the past few months I have had the opportunity to try two diffferent types of Walgreens Nice! brand frozen burritos and I’m glad I had the opportunity.
The two products that I’m referring to are the Walgreens Nice! Beef & Cheese Burrito and the Walgreens Nice Chicken Fajita Burrito.
Presented here in an effort to assist the consumer is one food writer’s product comparison of these two frozen items.
The net weight of each of these frozen burritos is seven ounces (198 grams). Each burrito contains one serving.
The regular retail price charged for these frozen burritos is approximately $1.59 each. To me, the retail price of these items is reasonable.
Texture / Consistency
When it comes to texture, both of these frozen burritos provide a decent enough mouth-feel, but I definitely prefer the consistency of the Walgreens Nice! Chicken Fajita Burrito over the Walgreens Nice! Beef & Cheese Burrito.
Walgreens’ Nice! brand Beef & Cheese Burrito contains 430 calories with 100 calories from fat per one burrito serving. This product also contains 4 grams of saturated fat, 12 grams total fat, 0 grams trans fat, 30 mg of cholesterol, 990 mg of sodium, 60 grams total carbohydrates, 3 grams of dietary fiber, 1 gram of sugars and 22 grams of protein per one burrito serving.
Walgreens’ Nice! brand Chicken Fajita Burrito contains 390 calories with 80 calories from fat per one burrito serving. This item also contains 1.5 grams saturated fat, 9 grams total fat, 0 grams trans fat, 40 mg of cholesterol, 800 mg of sodium, 55 grams total carbohydrates, 3 grams of dietary fiber, 2 grams of sugars and 22 grams of protein per one burrito serving.
Taste / Flavor
In my humble opinion both of these frozen burritos taste pretty good but I definitely prefer the flavor of the chicken fajita variety.
It’s not that the Walgreens Nice! brand Beef & Cheese Burrito tastes bad, it just seems to me that the chicken fajita burrito tastes more lively, well-balanced and appealing to me.
On a flavor scale of one through ten I would assign the Walgreens Nice! brand Beef & Cheese Burrito a rating of 7.50. On a flavor scale of one through ten I would assign the Walgreens Nice Chicken Fajita Burrito a rating of 8.75.
Each of these frozen burritos is packaged in a long plastic wrapper that features an illustration of the enclosed burrito on the front label. Each rear label lists all perrtinent nutritional facts and both packages are easy to open.
If you’re looking for a quick and tasty snack or meal, either one of these frozen burritos is a good bet. In less than five minutes you can be enjoying a nice hot burrito.
