i'm thinking that unless Kellbell's daughter took that picture of the food case, that these things do not exist.

I live in Austin Texas and they have them here. I live in Round Rock and our Walmart in Cedar Park had 4 kinds. I will look at other walmarts for more samples.

Lorias - good for you for getting a response! I called atkins' PR firm and haven't gotten anyone to call me back yet! This could be good news!

I agree sya_unit, I would like to have that "back-up" even if I do not use it. Better that frozen meal than a horrible cheat.

Whole foods has an Indian frozen meal that only has 10 or so carbs (it's been a while). Sag paneer w no rice. It's quite good and good for emergencies. It's spiced spinach and cheese.

Lori, that's awesome that they're sending you coupons!

I just saw on Atkins facebook page today that they are doing a contest to meet Sharon Osbourne and get a year's worth of the new Frozen Meals. I did a Google search for the meals and didn't find much, but ended up here on this forum. I'm glad I did - I'm a new member now!

I fell of the LC wagon for the last several months and gained some weight back (NOT happy about that!) so I'm happy to find some support here and other people who are excited about the new Atkins frozen meals.

Can't wait to try them!

The Atkins frozen meals appear to be exclusive to Wal-Mart. But even if they weren't exclusive, Netrition wouldn't carry them because we do not ship frozen items.

If you are looking for microwavable ready-to-eat meals, we recommend Homestyle FreshChili. They have fantastic customer reviews.

I just talked to someone from the Atkins public relations firm:
There are 9 products: Meatloaf with Portobello Mushroom Gravy, Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo with a real cream and Parmesan cheese sauce. ■Farmhouse-Style Sausage Scramble■Tex-Mex Scramble■Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo■Roast Turkey Tenders with Herb Pan Gravy■Beef Merlot■Crustless Chicken Pot Pie■Meatloaf with Portobello Mushroom Gravy■Italian Sausage Primavera■Chile con Carne

The line supposedly contains no "added sugars or preservatives," range from 310-370 calories, and contain seven or fewer grams of net carbs.

Atkins frozen meals will be available nationwide in January 2013. The meals will have a MSRP of $4.49 (lunch/dinner varieties) and $3.99 (breakfast).

Ok, so I tried the Meatloaf with Portobello Mushroom gravy. Meat looked like a shaped piece of artificial meat. HOWEVER, it was pretty tasty, ugly but good. The gravy with mushrooms and the veges were really good tasting to me. ( for a frozen meal )

I thought it was on par with any of the other frozen meals out there and without all the CARBS! I would definately eat this again. Looking forward to trying the other options also.

On a side note, I really like the little containers they come in. Perfect size and shape for a nice salad when washed out...

I've tried three of these so far. Here's my review:

Italian Sausage Primavera - I liked this one but it was REALLY spicy. I'd get it again though. Lots of sausage....yum!

Turkey Tenders with Herb Pan Gravy - Pretty good turkey with green beans. However, there are LOTS of green beans. Way too many for me. Had to throw about 1/3 of them away.

Crustless Chicken Pot Pie - My least favorite. Not exactly sure why. Something off in the taste to me.

My Walmart in MA had them all except the Farmhouse Scramble, Chile con Carne and Tex Mex Scramble (unless they were in the breakfast section....didn't look there).

All the ones they had were $3.86.

Nice to have something quick on hand for those no time to cook lunches and dinners.

Am I the only one that thinks that these sound less than healthy? The equivalent of high carb frozen meals filled with questionable ingredients like soy and dubious Atkins math with the net carbs?

My fast and easy meals are eggs/bacon or some sauteed chicken with green beans. Boiling eggs also takes only a few mins and requires no supervision.

Maybe it's just me.

The facebook page states they are only available in Super Walmarts currently with a full roll out planned for January.

I hope they decide to stock them in Asda (UK supermarket owned by Walmart) in the not too distant future...

I agree that it's always best to have a fresh home cooked meal, but sometimes it's nice to have another option on hand, especially something that I can take to work.

On the other hand, I'd never actually been a fan of any frozen dinner, so I don't know why I am so interested in these, lol.

You're not the only one nolcjunk!

I eat low carb but principally according to Primal guidelines--mainly whole foods. I prefer to eat food I cook, and I won't touch any frozen meals because of the questionable nature of most food additives in these processed foods.
