I love chili and I have seen many television advertisements for Wolf brand chili, recently. When I came across a can of Wolf Brand Chili with Beans at my local Dollar Tree store, I was delighted. The price was right! I decided to buy this chili, try it out and write a product review all about my personal experience with it. Here is what I discovered!
One can of Wolf Brand Chili with Beans was only one dollar. I liked that low price. Each can has two servings in it. This product has quite a history. The tale goes that since 1895, Kaiser Bill, the chili founder’s pet wolf, has closely guarded the Texas chili recipe. Of course, that must be a tall tale, since that wolf would be long dead by now. Anyway, this chili’s reputation proceeded it and I could not wait to taste it!
I poured the can’s contents into a microwave safe bowl, covered, cooked on high, in my microwave, for a few minutes, stirred well and served. I immediately noticed that this chili was a bit soupy and that is not a good thing, in my opinion. I like thick chili. When I tasted this chili, I was not impressed. The flavor is decent, but there is not much meat in this chili. The beans are plentiful, but small. While this chili does have a mild kick, spice wise, overall, I did not really care for it. I have had worse, but I have also had much better. I rate Wolf Brand Chili with Beans two and one half stars out of five stars. I will not be buying it again. There are too many other chili brands out there that are much better. I admit that I expected a lot from this chili. It didn’t deliver, in my opinion.
Another thing that I did not like was that one serving of this chili has 360 calories. Mercy. 140 of those calories come from fat. It has 16 grams of total fat, 5 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 20 mg’s of cholesterol, 960 mg’s of sodium, 770 mg’s of potassium, 38 grams of total carbs, 10 grams of dietary fiber, 3 grams of sugars and 16 grams of protein. This chili does have lots of vitamins and minerals in it. I also appreciate the fact that this brand sponsors the Child Hunger Ends Here charity. That is admirable. I enjoyed trying Wolf Brand Chili with Beans and writing this review about it. This brand does offer many other chili products like turkey chili, lean beef chili, chili with no beans and I have not tried any of those, but I think I will pass. Texas style chili should be hearty, meaty and thick. This one just did not pass my good chili test or leave me howling for more.
