I enjoy making many different types of dishes using ham. Recently, I came across a can of Bristol Brand Chunk Ham in the canned meats section of my local Dollar store. The price was right! I decided to purchase this ham, try it out and write an unbiased product review all about my personal experience with it. Here is what I discovered!
While, I am not very familiar with many of the Bristol brand food products, I did recently try Bristol brand canned chunk chicken. It was not the best but, it did serve it’s purpose fairly well. I hoped that Bristol Brand Chunk Ham would perform and taste even better. One can costs only one dollar. There are three servings in each can. This canned ham has smoke flavor added to it and I liked that fact very much. I had a recipe for scalloped cheese potatoes and ham that I was dying to try. Smoke flavored ham seemed perfect for it. I could not wait to try this product!
I discovered that this ham is pretty low in saturated fat and it is also fairly low cal. That is nice and I appreciated those facts. This ham does have chunked and ground ham in it. It is packed really tightly into the can. When I opened this can, the ham did smell great. You must separate the ham before using in a recipe. It has a nice reddish pink color. When I added it to my scalloped cheese potatoes, it went a long way. Lots of ham for a little amount of money. I loved it!
When I tasted this ham, it pleased me very much. It is juicy, flavorful and meaty. It also has a thick texture. This product is a bargain. It saves me money and it also saves me time spent in the kitchen. This ham has a great light smoky flavor. It goes well with many of my recipes, I discovered! I like using it in homemade soups, ham salad and casseroles. It can stretch a meal by three servings and that is fantastic! I rate Bristol Brand Chunk Ham four stars out of five stars. I will be buying it again. I like cooking with it and it is yummy! It also helps me make a great ham dip in mere minutes. Fabulous! You do have to chop this ham up quite a bit for smooth recipes like dip or some casseroles.
One serving of Bristol Brand Chunk Ham has 90 calories. 50 of those calories are from fat. One serving has 6 grams of total fat, only 2 grams of saturated fat, 40 mg’s of cholesterol, 560 mg’s of sodium, less than 1 gram of total carbs, less than 1 gram of sugars and 9 grams of protein. A relative of mine tried this ham in her deviled egg recipe and she said it was delicious. I agree.
I loved trying Bristol Brand Chunk Ham and writing a product review all about it. It is affordable, easy to cook with and so tasty. If you need to add smoked flavored ham to a recipe and do not have much money, this one is perfect. One dollar buys quite a bit and that is wonderful in today’s economy. This ham is a winner! I highly recommend it. It is perfect for making great appetizers and dips for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Easy on the purse and that is something most of us can use!
