Swanson’s TV Dinners


As a kid I could eat the same exact thing for every meal. For a long stretch of time there was nothing else I ate except Swanson’s TV dinners. The fried chicken was, by far, my favorite, but I also liked the turkey, meatloaf and the Salisbury steak.

I loved mixing everything together into one mushy mess, but my brother, a much more finicky eater, preferred the compartments and the ability to eat different sections by themselves without any foods touching each other.  While TV dinners are still around, only Swanson’s brings me back to my childhood. What do you remember about the taste and smell of a Swanson’s?
