Like the title says, the only thing I don’t like about them is how many times I go to buy them and they only have the chicken ones. I feel like I need to mention that they’re obviously not as good as from a restaurant, fresh and homemade, because some people seem to expect that sort of thing, but for a frozen item from a grocery store, these are phenomenal!”
