365 Everyday Value Bean & Rice Burrito Review

365 Everyday Value Bean & Rice Burrito

365 Everyday Value is Whole Foods’ line of frozen meals. This line includes classics like lasagna and pizza, as well as a few frozen burritos. Since we thought their Bean & Cheese Burrito was halfway decent, we thought we’d venture deeper into the line and check out the Bean & Rice Burrito.

We heated this in the oven, but we didn’t follow the instructions exactly. We let it thaw overnight first, then we preheated the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Once it was ready to go, we wrapped the burrito in tinfoil and tossed it in for about 40 minutes, flipping it over about 20 minutes into the process. This way, the shell crisped a bit, which would be a difficult feat to pull off in a microwave.

We really don’t have a lot to say about this burrito. It doesn’t do anything surprising; as the title suggests, the pinto beans and brown rice are the main event here. It all tastes fine, but there’s nothing about this that makes it stand out from a typical gas station burrito besides the fact that it’s maybe a tiny bit healthier.

And even then, it’s not that healthy. At 320 calories (70 from fat) it won’t throw you off your diet, but there are better burritos that are even lower in calories.

365 Everyday Value’s Bean & Rice Burrito is okay, though we don’t think we could pick it out in a crowd. Evol makes many better burritos, and Sweet Earth makes better healthy burritos, so 365 Everyday Value isn’t really doing anything for the frozen meal scene besides taking up freezer shelf space at Whole Foods.
