We just did a taste test between La Briute and Meal Mart. Both do not require refridgeration. The La Briute doesn't require a microwave. Since the La Briute costs over 9 bucks and the one we bought (buffalo wings) for the taste test failed miserably (absolutely gross, smothered in tomato sauce), we need to know if it is worth it to try any other La Briute masterpieces or if they are all the same. The Meal Mart meals (pepper steak, chicken chow mein, roasted chicken and kugel) were all good and only 4.99.
