Office Lunches: Jimmy Dean’s Ham and Cheese Croissant Sandwich

Lunch today consists of more sesame snaps, a Dole Fruit Bowl and something new … a ham and cheese croissant from Jimmy Dean.

There is nothing more to say about the sesame snaps and the fruit bowl other then the fact that we still have lots of it left in the storeroom.

We got the Jimmy Dean Ham and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches from Walmart. This costs $4.98 for a box of 6 Croissant Sandwiches. The Jimmy Dean brand is part of Sara Lee’s brand. One thing about Sara Lee … although they are well known for their food products, they are also the company behind non-food brands like Brylcreem, Kiwi show polish, Ambi Pur air refresheners, Playtex and Wonderbra. Interesting, huh?

It’s simple preparing this … just pop it into the oven for less than a minute and you’re done.

The Jimmy Dean’s Croissant Sandwich does not really taste like a croissant. Although it looked very much like a croissant, texture-wise it is more bready and does not have the flakiness of real croissant. Still, it was quite a tasty sandwich.

BTW, did you know that the name croissant came from the word crescent because of its distinctive shape?
