Summary: Freshly's Sliced Turkey & Mushroom Demi-Glace

Freshly’s Sliced Turkey and Mushroom Demi-Glace is a huge disappointment. The sauce is good but the turkey is misleading. There’s hardly any mushroom demi-glace in the meal as well. Lastly, the carrots are not soft at all. Avoid this meal.

My Rating
1.5/5

  1. Remove sleeve and peel corner of film to vent.

  2. Microwave for 3 minutes.

  3. Let stand for 2 minutes.

  4. Carefully peel back film to remove.

Impressions & Taste

First impressions, the turkey isn’t sliced as Freshly claims but more shredded. It’s not a big deal for me but may be a deal breaker for some. The meal would definitely look more appealing with sliced turkey but it still smells good.

On the first bite, the turkey pieces are thick and full of flavor. Especially with the sweet potato mash, the flavor gets bumped up to another level. As for the mushroom demi-glace, it’s hard to distinguish where it is when combined with the mash.

At first glance, I thought the orange balls were sweet potatoes. When I bit into it, I realized it was a carrot. They’re harder than I expected but the seasoning is tasty and sweet with what looks like cinnamon.

Verdict and Rating

Freshly’s Sliced Turkey and Mushroom Demi-Glace is a huge disappointment. The sauce is good but the turkey is misleading. There’s hardly any mushroom demi-glace in the meal as well. Lastly, the carrots are not soft at all. Avoid this meal.
