REVIEW -- Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Fish Products

Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Fish Products

Seafood is one of my favorite foods. My favorites are shrimp and Tuna fish.

I really never was a fish stick eater, even as a child. But when Gorton's offered me the chance to try their new Smart & Crunchy™ fish products for free, I jumped at the chance.

On the day I went shopping, I was not able to get both varieties of the Smart & Crunchy products. However, I was lucky enough to hit a sale where the Gorton's Grilled Fillets were buy one get one, so with the 2 free items coupons, I was able to get 3 items for free. Let's take a look at the 3 products I 'bought.'

SMART & CRUNCHY BREADED FISH FILLETS

Smart & Crunchy Fish Fillets are made with 100% wild-caught Alaska Pollock and breaded in a panko coating that gives them the great taste and crunch you’ve come to expect from Gorton’s. Always crispy, never fried, they have 50% less fat than our regular Fish Fillets and 200 calories per serving. All the taste, half the fat!

• 50% less fat than our regular breaded fish fillets
• Never fried
• 100% wild-caught Alaska Pollock
• Natural Omega-3


To my knowledge, I have never had Alaska Pollock. These were really flavorful. I really liked the crunch these had. I also liked the fact that there was PLENTY of fish meat in these fillets. Other companies' fillets seem to have more breading/coating than fish meat, and the breading seems to 'flake off.' The breading on the Smart & Crunchy™ fillets seemed to stay on better.
TASTE: 9.5/10

There are 2 different varieties of the Smart & Crunchy™ products; fish fillets and fish sticks.


GARLIC BUTTER GRILLED FILLETS

Flame-grilled and expertly seasoned with real garlic and butter, Gorton’s Garlic Butter Grilled Fillets add sizzle to any meal! Enjoy authentic flame-grilled fish from your oven or microwave, anytime. Plus, they’re 80 calories so you can load up on flavor without being weighed down.

• 80 calories
• Wild Caught Alaska Pollock
• Gluten Free
• Natural Omega-3

These are one of the B1G1 deals our local store had. I didn't really like the flavor of these fillets. I felt it was too heavy on the garlic and not enough butter. This surprised me, because I usually LOVE things with garlic. But these just didn't do anything for me.
TASTE: 7/10

LEMON PEPPER GRILLED FILLETS

Flame-grilled and expertly seasoned with real lemon and pepper, Gorton’s Lemon Pepper Grilled Fillets add sizzle to any meal! Enjoy authentic flame-grilled fish from your oven or microwave, anytime. Plus, they’re 90 calories so you can load up on flavor without being weighed down.

• 90 calories
• Wild Caught Alaska Pollock
• Gluten Free
• Natural Omega-3

These are the other variety of the B1G1 deals our local store had. Besides the Smart & Crunchy™ fillets, these were my favorite. The lemon and the pepper blended wonderfully with the natural flavors of the Alaska Pollock. I would definitely recommend this flavor over the Garlic Butter flavor.
TASTE: 9.75/10

As I said, I was given a promotional package in exchange for this review. In this package was two (2) full-value product coupons, branded Mommy/Daddy and Me Aprons and a Smarty Crunchman plush stuffy. I personally use the kid's apron as a 'bib,' since I have poor saliva control. The stuffed plushy is VERY adorable and sits on my computer desk.
