Turkey for Thanksgiving

Last year, in 2019, during the height of the Thanksgiving Holiday season in the USA, our family purchased a Jennie-O Oven Ready Whole Turkey (Homestyle) from our local Food Lion supermarket in Greensboro, North Carolina & we were very pleased with the purchase. I will discuss this Jennie-O brand turkey product a bit in this brief product review. Please, read on!

A case of "you get what you pay for" ?

Yes, purchasing a raw whole turkey that still needed to be cleaned and seasoned would have been cheaper, but purchasing this Jennie-O brand oven ready whole turkey product was so much easier!

An easy to prepare whole turkey for approximately $17-$19

In the days nearing the Thanksgiving Holiday, especially one or two days prior to Thanksgiving, you can potentially find this Jennie-O oven ready whole turkey product for approximately $17-$19 (sale price). That is the price that I paid for it at Food Lion supermarket.

Paying for convenience

At the Thanksgiving season time of the year, a raw frozen whole turkey that is unseasoned (and would need to be washed and thawed) can possibly be purchased for a very low price, well under $10, but here is a case of paying for convenience when you buy the Jennie-O brand oven ready whole turkey that is so much easier to cook.

I have never purchased an already seasoned turkey ready to bake, such as this one you featured. What amazes me is that it can go from freezer to oven in just 5 minutes! What I like about doing my own is that I can adjust the seasonings, and I want to roast a lot of vegetables in with the turkey at the same time. This is good information to know, however.
