I've never had one, they look good, are they & health?

not a fan of any pre-made foods. They always have too much sodium to being with and then you have no clue what's really in them. Years ago my hubby & son ate hot pockets, but we've all gone on to much better choices.

Re-read this and am wondering how many other products out there have this issue, but are not recalled because they slip through the system.

I walked past the Hot Pockets at the grocery store and actually felt sick to my stomach.
I did eat them a long time ago and well the meat always seemed suspect. I certainly won't ever eat them again

=( I brought a hot pocket in for lunch I actually fell off the boat a bit with eating cleaner/healthier foods, hence why I have hotpocket. Thanks for the motivation to get back into eating healthier!!! I must admit though, I LOVE hotpockets, they are yummy and convenient... but everything in moderation I guess
After reading all the comments to this post, I am very glad I have no idea what a 'Hot Pocket' is!

Thats exactly the reason I avoid All frozen snacks/dinners that contain any type of meat or fake cheese. No matter the brand, its all overprocessed food.

I've never eaten one and don't intend to. Too processed for my liking. There are healthier and cheaper alternatives to that stuff, such as rice and beans or pasta or potatoes. Soups (homemade) can also be cheaper and healthier. Shopping in season for veggies and fruit helps keep the cost down a bit, too.

I read Dailymail - don't know how I missed this? Anyway…we haven't bought these in years. Will keep it that way too. Ick.
I eat lean pockets for breakfast at least 3 mornings. They are less than a dollar each, take 2 minutes to make from the freezer, and I can eat them in my car on the way to work. I try getting the ones with broccoli or spinach too, and avoid the pizza ones.
processed food may be convenient but it isn't necessarily cheaper than buying rice, beans, and chicken leg quarters. For what it would cost to feed a family of four, you can buy healthy alternatives versus hot pockets.

For some people that is all they can afford. A hot pocket with a salad is a meal. We went to the store and 1 pot roast was $14. Food is so expensive.
I'm a vegan, wouldn't eat Hot Pockets anyway. But they're mostly greasy and fatty - yuck!

Nope we don't have processed foods in the house and I am so glad that now my 12 year old has no desire to eat those types of food. Good thing DH is teaching him to cook!

I stop eating them several years ago.

I read an article about this the other day. I think it's super weird and suspect that it was only one flavor of hot pockets. Where are they getting the "meat" for the other flavors? I had just seen the documentary Food, Inc the day before this news broke so I found it pretty odd. I don't think I've had a hot pocket in over a year, but yes I'm guilty of eating them as a convenience food in the past. Only the pepperoni ones, never had the philly steak. I will avoid all in the future.

I used to love them. The meat just didn't seem like real meat
What puzzles me is how we decide which parts of an animal are yummy and which parts are gross. Really, why are beef lips disgusting if beef ribs aren't? I'm not criticizing, because I actually have the same reaction, but I just wonder why our culture has chosen to classify different parts of the same animal in such different ways.
As for Hot Pockets, I would be more concerned about the partially hydrogenated vegetable oil in the crust than about the mystery meat on the inside.
Hot Pockets can't be healthy - too many calories, too many of which are fat calories; not to mention the sodium! I have not eaten one in at least a couple decades.

A long time ago when I used to eat hot pockets. The meat seemed questionable. So I am not surprised.

Hot Pockets, to me, are way too little food for too many calories. Even the Lean Pockets are too many calories, as far as I'm concerned. At least for the amount of food you get, they are. Some of the Hot Pockets are nearly 300 calories for just one. I can think of much better things to blow 300 calories on.

I've never had one, but there were always coupons for them in Sunday's papers.......
