Great Tupperware, So-so Food

Yesterday I got invited to MD Girl's* Tupperware party. I originally thought it was some type of theme party. (Because she just moved and there's no real silverware, so it's all Tupperware that sort of thing...) But as it turned out, it was a real Tupperware party, with a live human demonstrating how to utilize the Tupperware to their fullest extent. I felt like I was in an infomercial and felt the need to overact on my reaction. But, anyhoo, the Tupperware party also featured food that was cooked from different Tupperware, so I figured it would be a good opportunity to include some critique for these free food if any of my reader would like to host a Tupperware party.

First, the Tupperware lady demonstrated how to cook a chocolate cake in a microwave. Since I was late to the party and missed out on the procedure, I couldn't really say if the cake making process was as easy as one, two, three! Then, she demonstrated how to use Tupperware chopper with Tupperware's own secret blend of Southwest seasoning to make salsa. The Tupperware chopper was basically a hand powered food processor, so you could just put your ingredients in and stir around the chopper and voila, you have your salsa. The special seasoning wasn't too special because I didn't really taste anything so refreshing that just popped in my mouth. And it had a little smoky flavor, which I wasn't sure if it's from the smoked chipotle that they claim was the secret ingredient or the cumin. After the salsa, she introduced us to the Tupperware Italian seasoning, which smelled like it had oregano, thyme, garlic powder and some other spices. She then whipped out the pre-preped Italian meat ball and put them in the microwave too. For a short 8 minutes, you could have about a pound of meat balls ready for your family feast in no time! The seasoning of the meat ball was not bad because of the flavor of their Italian seasoning. However, the meat ball was very dry because she puts them on a special tray that separated meat juice and fat away from the meat ball. Even though she claim that it was healthier by showing us what was separated from the bottom (which consisted a little fat and majority of meat juice), but I wasn't too keen on the idea of making meat balls that way, simply because IT WAS FREAKING DRY! Anyways, after the meat ball we could finally had our dessert. She prepared a German chocolate cake topped with condensed milk, caramel sauce, and candied walnuts. The chocolate cake was not bad, but you could tell it's a steamed cake, not a baked cake because there was no crust**. And the cake had a little watery taste to it too. It wasn't a bad tasting cake, but it's just not the same as baked cake.

The Tupperware party was fun, but the food was only so-so. I would only ranked it a 2.25 out of 5 on my yummy scale. But since the food was free, I wasn't complaining. If you would like to host a Tupperware party with all the fixings, you can contact

** Crust or browning occurs when the outside air surrounding the cooking object is hot and dry. Since the air surrounding the cooking object in a microwave is at room temperature, there will not be any browning occurs. That is why microwavable pastries sometimes come with a little sleeve made out of foil and cardboard. You put the food in the sleeve and then microwave it. The sleeve reacts to microwave energy by becoming very hot. This exterior heat lets the crust become crispy as it would in a conventional oven.

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
