New in the Market: Coleman’s All Natural Chicken Meatballs

by Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN on April 4, 2011 · 2 comments

We love to try new foods. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

Everyone loves meatballs. They make a great hot sandwich, a tasty appetizer or a quick meal when coupled with a jar of sauce. The problem is, most of us don’t have the ingredients on hand or the time to make a batch when we feel like eating them.

Coleman’s All Natural Chicken Meatballs has solved that problem, selling 12-ounce packages of fully-cooked meatballs in the supermarket refrigerated case. Each package contains 18 meatballs that can be reheated in the microwave, oven or stove-top. The meatballs are made with antibiotic-free chicken, contain no fillers or preservatives, and come in four flavors: Italian Style with Parmesan; Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil & Provolone; Pesto Parmesan; and Spinach, Fontina Cheese & Roasted Garlic.

A 4-meatball serving has:

  • Italian Style: 150 calories, 10 grams of fat, 60 milligrams of cholesterol and 550 milligrams of sodium.
  • Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil & Provolone: 150 calories, 9 grams of fat, 65 milligrams of cholesterol and 500 milligrams of sodium.
  • Pesto Parmesan: 170 calories, 12 grams of fat, 60 milligrams of cholesterol and 350 milligrams of sodium.
  • Spinach, Fontina Cheese & Garlic: 130 calories, 9 grams of fat, 60 milligrams of cholesterol and 470 milligrams of sodium.

Each package is stamped with a “use by” date, after which the meatballs can be frozen for up to 6 months for later use. We tried all 4 varieties and these meatballs are definitely worth a try.
