Until now, the only Weight Watchers product I’ve ever tasted was their nasty Blueberry Muffins. When I bought Smart Ones Morning Express English Muffin Sandwich I didn’t realize it was part of the Weight Watchers line up, and I had major attitude when I found out, but its a recession and I’m not wasting cash, so lets dig in.
I was shocked when I opened the package. This English Muffin looks likes fake food from my Greedy four year-old’s toy kitchen. Should I be eating this? I didn’t get any lingering microwave aroma, but it certainly looked better after it was cooked.
The melted, oily diet cheese oozed out of the sandwich onto what appeared to be a light and fluffy English muffin (no meat on this one), but when I chomped down the breading had an elastic stretchiness that made it difficult to pull a bite away from the rest of sandwich. Despite this bizarre experience the cheese and breading actually tastes good, but why can’t I get any egg flavor?
I broke off a piece of egg white patty to taste it separately and what I got was a mouthful of water-logged egg with zero taste. And here’s the ironic part – even though Smart Ones Morning Express English Muffin Sandwich sounds like a creation from the twilight zone, it grew on me with every bite and I actually like it. This one’s a keeper. (yes, I’m shocked too)

Reactions from the Taste Test Crew
Health-hater Husband – The bread is soft except for a bit of hardness on the bottom. The cheese is just OK. It’s surprisingly good for a microwave sandwich, actually better than Bob Evans’ version. The egg was flavorful, but that’s because I added salt and pepper. I wouldn’t have guessed it was Weight Watchers.
