Today on Rachel Reviews Baby Food, we have Plum Organics Hello Morning Pears & Quinoa.
Hmm, I thought. I like pears and I like quinoa. Also, quinoa has protein! While I do think it’s presumptive of them to assume that I wish to say hello to my morning with baby food (I’d much rather say goodbye to morning all together and go back to sleep), this seemed like something that would be hard to screw up.
This proved to be an erroneous assumption on my part. This stuff looks like wood glue and tastes like grainy Elmer’s paste mixed with a tiny bit of sugar. And it only has 1 gram of protein. 2 out of 5 stars.
Since I was still hungry, I tried something else. This time, Earth’s Best Pumpkin Cranberry Apple.
First, I would like to point out the mostly-naked baby on the label reaching for a watering can. This seems like irresponsible parenting to me, because that baby gonna get tetanus.
On the surface, this really seems like a winning flavor combination, but the operative word here is “seems.” I can taste neither pumpkin nor cranberries, only watery applesauce with an odd after taste that is something like celery. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
