Cheeeeese. Who doesn’t like cheddar cheese? Or even cheddar cheese melted or cheddar cheese sauce. It’s gooey, melty and delicious. Amy’s says, “People love AMy’s broccoli pot pie. So we thought ‘why not take the same great tasting filling-the crisp organic broccoli, organic golden carrots, organic northern potatoes, and a smooth creamy cheese sauce0 and bake it into a pocket sandwich?”
I was excited to try Amy’s Broccoli & Cheese in a pocket sandwich, because I personally LOVE broccoli & cheese and potatoes and cheese, and this baby has BOTH. Plus, as an added benefit, out of all of Amy’s pocket sandwiches, it is the only one with a whole wheat crust.
So how did it hold up? Wonderfully, of course. Amy’s never lets me down. The crust was soft and chewy, with a slight sweet honey taste to it. You couldn’t even tell it was whole wheat- it tasted just like the other varieties. The cheese sauce was creamy and smooth as promised. It also had just a tinge of a sweet taste to it. It wasn’t too salty either like cheese sauces can sometimes be. It wasn’t YELLOW either like in powdered macaroni & cheese varieties, but more of a beige/yellow-orange. After all, it was made with REAL cheese. The potatoes were soft and tender, the carrots were a good consistency as well, soft but not mushy. All together, the filling (which oozes out of the pocket bread if you cut it in half), tasted like a broccoli and cheese baked potato. It was really tasty, I really enjoyed it. It was pretty filling too despite it not being a HUGE pocket bread. I would say its a little bit longer but a little flatter than a Lean or Hot Pocket. I would reccomment this when you need a cheesy/potatoey fix. It will hit the spot!
