Lunch from Homes: Lunchables Pizza

By Ed Bruske
aka The Slow Cook

It took a mad genius to invent Lunachables. Kids love them. They are filled with nothing but stuff that kids adore. Pizza is far and away the favorite food of kids in the cafeteria. This build-your-own version just adds all kinds of exciting possibilities.

Plus, you can see it's not just pizza inside the box, but cookies and Kool-Aid. I suppose this is okay, since the crust, according to Oscar Meyer, is made with eight grams of "whole grain," although the ingredient list--a mile long--merely describes "enriched wheat flour."

Look at all the stuff in here. For some reason, in addition to the bottle of water, there's a tube of "Kool-Aid Tropical Punch Single." I suppose that's for extra sweetness, since the first ingredient listed is sugar. In fact, this meal contains 25 grams of sugar, or about six teaspoons.

But look what fun. First, you get to smear a packet of tomato sauce over the crust.

Then you sprinkle on the cheese,

Finally, add some pepperoni.

You don't need any utensils. It eats just like a regular pizza. Except it's not hot.

Pretty, cool, huh?
Who says meals from home aren't as good as the stuff they serve in the cafeteria?
