JENNIE-O OVEN READY WHOLE TURKEY HOMESTYLE : PRODUCT REVIEW
This was a very savory and flavorful turkey. It was quite delicious, really.
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.
You can expect to see BIG SALES ON TURKEYS at Thanksgiving time. You can typically buy the turkeys for much less than at other times of the year!

Detailed instructions for how to prepare this Jennie-O turkey are generously given on the green and white plastic outer packaging of the Jennie-O Oven Ready Whole Turkey Product.
The green and white outer packaging needs to be removed and the inner plastic "cooking bag" needs to remain while pulled up and away from the turkey (not touching the top of the turkey itself).
