Before we left for vacation, we had a chance to visit the St Louis Fair and see the America's Helper truck that has been on tour throughout the US. You can go here to America's Helper website to see the schedule of where the Helper truck will appear next and get some samples of the new flavors.
While we were there, my daughter got to play the toss game, but they ran out of prizes (they were giving away cute helper hand puppets). We also waited for samples of some of the new flavors, but it was taking a very long time and it was too hot to wait. (Darn!)
Lucky for us, we were sent a box of the new Sweet and Sour Chicken Helper (yes - if you weren't aware, they make more than just Hamburger versions). I found that this version did take a bit more work than other versions since it includes a breading for the chicken, but in the end, it was worth the extra effort. My family is a big fan of take out Sweet and Sour chicken, but this was almost as good and a whole lot cheaper!!! Comes with rice so really all you need to add is the chicken. I would have liked a bit more sauce, but I am a sauce person. I also like to add some of my own ingredients to make it more homemade. This one is good with pineapple chunks. We will make it again.
If you want to try any of the new flavors, be sure to go over here to print a coupon for 75 cents off 3 boxes.
