3 Thai Pavilion Pad Thai 4.5 Collapsible forks - 2 of 5 collapsible forks from Ursula, 2.5 of 5 from Kevin
3 Contessa Mongolian Brand Beef 7.5 Toasting forks? - Brief suggestion that there might finally be ratings halfway through the episode when Ursula calls this a 3.5 to 4 toasting forks out of 5, but alas, no follow-through.

4 Trader Joe's Chicken-Less Cutlets 3 Al-dente Noodles - Exploded!
4 Thai Joe's Lemongrass Chicken Sticks 8 Al-dente Noodles - (Yay ratings)
5 Archer Farms Asian Inspired Sesame Teriyaki noodle bowl 1.42 Barf Bags - Noodles in poor-quality soy sauce. Top Ramen is better.(Originally scored 1 out of 7)
5 Trader Joe's Chicken Gorgonzola 6 Barf Bags - Visually *really* unappealing, 'not as unpleasant as [you'd] think', good texture.
5 Vigo Red Beans and Rice 8 Barf Bags - Cheap, filling, easy to make,
5 Wolfgang Puck's Chicken and Dumpling canned soup Not Rated Barf Bags - There were two dumplings, about the size of a dime. Not nearly enough dumplings.
6 Archer Farms Cajun-flavored Rice and Bean Bowl 1.88 Flying Pigs - Takes 7-7.5 minutes to cook, really bland. It's cheap-ass rice and beans. (Originally scored 1.5 out of 8)
6 Thai Kitchen Tangy Sweet & Sour Noodles 5 Flying Pigs - Bland and did not rehydrate properly. (Originally scored 4 out of 8)
6 Trader Joe's Potato Pancakes 8.75 Flying Pigs Store- Trader Joe's Absolutely delicious, but they are not vegan and they have to be fried. (May not be kosher.) (Originally scored 7 out of 8)
6 Vigo Yello Rice Not rated Flying Pigs - Cooked easily, made a lot of rice, delicious, moist, good with Mexican food.
7 Chef Boyardee Macaroni and Cheese Microcup 0.7 Colanders - Didn't heat properly and a distinctly subpar taste. (Originally scored 0.35 out of 5)
7 Kraft Cheesy Made Easy Triple Cheese (microwaved) 2 Colanders - Not so much mac-n-cheese as cheese soup, not as good as standard Kraft. Did *not* thicken. (Originally scored 1 out of 5)
7 Annie's Macaroni and Cheese 6 Colanders - Lacks umami, but still decent. Similar to the standard Kraft. (Originally scored 3 out of 5)
7 Kraft Macaroni and Cheese 8 Colanders - Classic mac-and-cheese, more buttery than cheesy (Originally scored 4 out of 5)
7 Boston Market Macaroni and Cheese. 10 Colanders - A little expensive - $2.99 for a small box. Quite cheesy. The best of the batch. (Originally scored 5 out of 5)
7 Tasty Bite All Natural Vegetarian Bombay Potatoes Not rated Colanders - Good over rice, on par with cheap Indian buffet. Vegan.
7 Mrs. T's Potato and Four Cheese Blend Pierogies Not rated Colanders - Not terribly expensive, better and less greasy than the Cheemo pierogies
7 Pork Roast Florentine from Trader Joe's Not rated Colanders - Fiddly to make/high PITA factor, tastes decent
8 Dr. McDougail's Pad Thai Noodle Soup 2.92 MREs Store - Lowes Foods Good noodles, the vegetables didn't fully rehydrate and bland. Entirely uninteresting. 'It might keep you alive, but why would you bother?' (Originally scored 1.75 out of 6)
8 Escalloped Potatoes and Ham (Thermostabilized) 5 MREs Gift Visually and texturally unappealing but useful and very portable. Would benefit from Tabasco and/or cheese. Not bad as MREs go. (Originally scored 3 out of 6)
8 Annie Chun's Kimchi Soup Bowl. 5 MREs Store Noodles came out well. No real flavor other than 'hot' and red pepper. (Originally scored 3 out of 6)
8 Jennie-O Turkey Meatloaf 7.5 MREs Store Not bad - not enough tomato sauce, but not HFC. Easy to prepare and kids will eat it. (Originally scored 4.5 out of 6)
9 Patak's Original Butter Chicken with Rice 4 Wombats - 340 cals/container. "Definitely fails our 'Looks like the packaging' test." Kinda bland. Wet; poor texture. Expensive.
9 Voila Cheddar Chicken Potato Skillet Meal 4 Wombats - Feeds the kids, but...

10 Seeds of Change Caribbean Red Beans and Brown Rice 3 Baby Pandas - "There are actual vegetables in this that I can recognize!" "Mediocre and uninspired"
10 Thai Kitchen Spicy Thai Basil 5.5 Baby Pandas - Unappetizing appearance. Incredibly spicy. "That is the hottest thing we have reviewed on KUEC" Texturally appealing, once the noodles were seperated. "One of the better noodle bowls we've reviewed" Ursula: 5, Kevin: 6
10 Dr. Praeger's Sweet Potato Pancakes 8 Baby Pandas - Very sweet-potato-y, would eat again. Delicious with butter.
10 All Natural Bragg's Liquid Aminos Not rated Baby Pandas - "Expensive soy sauce"
10 Wanchai Ferry General Tso's Frozen Chicken Not rated Baby Pandas - Straightforward stirfry. Microwave rice astoundingly good. "Low-end mall chinese." Too much red pepper. "Give Wanchai Ferry a miss"
10 Grands Buttermilk Biscuits Not rated Baby Pandas - "Oh my god so delicious"
11 Hormel Compleats Turkey & Dressing with Gravy 3 Turduckens - "Go for Chinese instead, for god's sake." Turkey - thick slice of deli turkey. Texturally unimpressive. (Originally scored 1.5 out of 5)

12 NutraSystems Hearty Beef Stew 1.88 Doorknobs - "This looks almost exactly like headcheese." Tastes powdery, almost like MRE. (Originally scored 1.5 out of 8)
12 Taco Bell Santa Fe Style Beef Bowlz 2.5 Doorknobs - "That is... wow." Does not come with cheese. (Originally scored 2 out of 8)
12 Hamburger Helper Microwave Singles Cheeseburger Macaroni 6.25 Doorknobs - "For reheated Hamburger Helper it tasted like Hamburger Helper." Beef not as rehydrated as one might hope. (Originally scored 5 out of 8)

12 Mrs. T's Mini Pierogies Not rated Doorknobs - Good, but feeds fewer people than the full-size
13 Thai Oriental Flavor Instant Noodles 2.22 Baby Polar Bears - Comes with tiny crappy fork and oils in little packets. "Bland-ish and salty" "Reasonably normal small ramen" Step below Maruchan Ramen (Originally scored 2 out of 9)
13 Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff 5.56 Baby Polar Bears - Kids loved the Hamburger Helper. Ursula misses sour cream tang. (Originally scored 5 out of 9)

13 Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon Not rated Baby Polar Bears - Cheap wine, but good
13 Bertolli's Tuscan Braised Beef/Chicken Marsala Not rated Baby Polar Bears - Accidental mixing of two different kinds. "We ate it and didn't complain."
14 El Monterey Bean and Beef Burrito 3.33 Sacred Hearts - Two for a buck. 380 calories. Explodes when poked with the fork. Chewy, a little spice, archetype of the basic microwave burrito. (Originally scored 2 out of 6)
14 Jose Ole Chicken & Cheese Chimichanga 3.33 Sacred Hearts - Exploded. Somewhat texturally distinct from previous burrito, but has the same microwave burrito taste. (Originally scored 2 out of 6)
14 Amy's Southwestern Burrito 5 Sacred Hearts - Exploded. Whole wheat tortilla, tough burrito exterior. Tastes like health food and the same hot-sauce slurry as archetype burrito. Rated up for being healthy. (Originally scored 3 out of 6)
14 Evol Chicken, Bean, and Rice Burrito 8.33 Sacred Hearts - 440 calories. Difficult to saw into. Does not have universal burrito taste. Not full of burrito slurry. Fairly tasty. (Originally scored 5 out of 6)

14 Hamburger Helper Cheeseburger Macaroni Not rated Sacred Hearts - "The children thought he had recreated manna from heaven."
14 InnovAsian Sweet & Sour Chicken Not rated Sacred Hearts - Mall Chinese. Sweet and Sour sauce that is blinding magenta. Oven bake version worked out well.
14 Pink Truck Pink Wine Crap Crap - Sweet, with a slightly sour finish. Bad wine, but good for a medicinal bender. "The wine gets a crap out of crap."
15 Hot Pockets Sideshots Cheeseburgers 3 Identity Discs - Genre: cheese and meat in a bun. Soft bun, but a little chewy.
15 Jose Ole Mini Tacos Beef & Cheese 3 Identity Discs - Has the microwave burrito taste. Corn shell. Needs more cheese. Not impressive. Teenage boy refueling food.
15 Skyline Chili Spaghetti 6 Identity Discs - Confusing food. Spaghetti is overly squishy. K:7 U:5
15 Pacific Natural Food Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup 8 Identity Discs - Great tomato soup, good with toasted bread
15 Bel Gioioso Tiramisu Marscapone 10 Identity Discs - Delicious, but difficult to find a use for outside of tiramisu.
15 Rex-Goliath Chardonnay Not rated Identity Discs - Cheap wine.
16 Banquet Chicken Pot Pie 5.56 Special Snowflakes - Can be purchased 10 for $10. Flaky crust. Classic pot pie. "Not good food, but for a buck it ain't bad." (Originally scored 5 out of 9)
16 Kraft Stove Top Stuffing Mix 7.78 Special Snowflakes - Made in microwave. Nice and moist, may be a little mushy. Could use gravy. High points for nostalgia. (Originally scored 7 out of 9)
16 Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil Parmagane Chicken and Pasta 7.78 Special Snowflakes - Pasta was a trifle mushy, but may be user error. The sauce was good. Good for 2 people, would need 2 sides for a family. (Originally scored 7 out of 9)
16 Swad Navaratan Korma 8.89 Special Snowflakes - Mixed vegetable and cashew sauce with pineapple. Really good sauce. Hint of spice. Very good vegetable korma. (Originally scored 8 out of 9)
