Buddy’s Special is simple including either a pizza stick, corn dog, chicken tender, or mozzarella stick with a side of tater tots or wedges.

5- Ready. Chef. Go.: These are pre-packed meals made fresh in the meat department daily. This is a treat, especially when you are looking for that healthy, hearty option. These meals are currently made in these different options: Salmon, Pork, Chicken, and Fajita mix. Each is fresh, high-quality meats from the meat department paired with perfectly selected seasonings and fresh produce to make the perfect meal for you.
These meals are microwavable in minutes and cook everything using steam in the innovatively designed package. This helps both meat and vegetables retain their delicious texture, and keep them from getting rubbery and overcooked.
