I hate paying more than is necessary for anything.
Vegetables in steam-in bags have less content and cost more than regular frozen vegetables.
I checked prices a few days ago. A one-pound bag of frozen peas was $1.79 (11.19 cents per ounce.)
A 12-ounce steam-in bag was $2.79 (23.25 cents per ounce) ---more than double the price.
Other vegetables had similar price differences.
Oh, but the steam-in bags are so convenient, you say. Really?????
With regular frozen vegetables, I have to put them in a container, then microwave them.

Same work, different order.
But now, it is almost impossible to find some vegetables in regular bags.
Please complain to your grocery stores about steam-in bags. Demand the regular bags of frozen veggies that have been around for years.
