Review by Chris McCallister
Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Right consistency, easy to heat, tasty
Cons:Minimal nutritional value
The Bottom Line: For a canned gravy, this was excellent.
Well, it’s Sunday, and the plan was to go out to eat, but it’s twenty-five degrees, windy, and there are snow flurries. Plus, I have had better days. Change of plan: get a rotisserie chicken from the local supermarket and heat up some Bob Evans mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives. My dad went to pick up the chicken, but he is a bit of an impulse buyer. He also bought a can of Campbell’s chicken gravy.

The chicken was excellent, if a bit dry. The mashed potatoes were very good; we’ve had them before and they’re consistently good. The gravy, the unexpected guest for dinner, was clearly the star of the show. It elevated the potatoes and turned the chicken into an entrée to enjoy.
This gravy is thick, without being lumpy or gloppy. It is tasty but not too salty. It has a touch of sage and black pepper, but neither overpowers the food to-be-gravied. It can be heated in a pan, but the instructions are vague there. For the microwave, which we used, you simply heat it, on High, for 75 to 90 seconds. The gravy comes in a can, with an easy-to-open pop-top lid.
Ingredients: chicken stock, chicken fat, modified food starch; contains less than 1.5% of dried whey (milk), wheat flour, salt, onion powder, autolyzed yeast extract, malt dextrin, flavoring, modified corn starch, chicken powder, sugar, black pepper, sage, beta carotene for color, lactic acid, citric acid, soy lecithin.

I know that purists will scoff at the concept of canned gravy, but scoff away, I say. This was good gravy, that turned a fair-to-good throw-it-together meal into a nice Sunday dinner that felt special.
At 361 words, this review is Lean and Mean, but too much gravy won't make you that way.
