365 Whole Foods Market Vegetable Egg Rolls Review

365 Whole Foods Market Vegetable Egg Rolls

Obviously, the 365 Whole Foods Market brand is a Whole Foods brand. However, the connection wasn’t always clear. The brand used to be called 365 Everyday Value, and we reviewed quite a bit of their frozen food back then. We assume Whole Foods changed the name of this brand to better reflect that it is indeed connected with the grocery store chain.

So we’re happy to be reviewing more of their food today, regardless of the name change. That’s right, today’s review is for the 365 Whole Foods Market Vegetable Egg Rolls. We love us some egg rolls, so we’re really looking forward to trying these ones.

These can be heated a number of ways, from baking in an oven to frying in a deep fryer to nuking in the microwave. We went with the oven, because we were a little worried that these might get a little soggy in the microwave — and who wants to eat soggy egg rolls? Not us! (If you want to read the full cooking instructions straight off the box, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

Right away, we have to say that these shells are absolutely incredible. These are crispy shells that have flavor up the wazoo. Normally, the shell isn’t the part of the egg roll that you’d get excited about, but what’s here is just super dang exciting.

Unfortunately, the filling isn’t great. This contains cabbage, edamame, water chestnuts, carrots, and onions — pretty standard stuff for an egg roll. But the veggies don’t taste particularly fresh, and some of them even end up kind of dried out. Sure, edamame can pull off the “dried-out” thing, but cabbage and carrots really can’t.

There’s supposed to be brown rice inside here as well, but it’s hard to find unless you go digging for it. There’s also what tastes kind of like wasabi sauce, which we’re guessing is what the ingredients list as “flavor enhancer.” It’s clear that something was added to make these more flavorful, because they’re as bland as can be otherwise.

And these aren’t even low in calories. Just one egg roll will run you 180 calories and 250 mg of sodium, which means the four in the package will add up to 720 calories and 1,000 mg of sodium. That doesn’t count any sauce you might choose to add — and you’ll definitely want to add a sauce of some kind so that the filling doesn’t bore you to sleep.

The 365 Whole Foods Market Vegetable Egg Rolls put a mediocre veggie filling into some excellent shells. With better filling, these could have really been something, but as is, they’re just kind of okay. In fact, we’d take the Target-branded Good & Gather Vegetable Spring Rolls over these ones any day.
