When I announced that I was part of the Hot Pockets Blogger Advisory Board I mentioned that I would have some awesome news to share with you about Hot Pockets.  Because I am one of the members I was given an all expense paid trip to the Nestle Headquarters and a behind the scenes look into the Hot Pockets Kitchen where everything takes place and today I get to share some of that information with you! All opinions below are that of my own.

Make sure you make it all the way to the end of the post!

Hot Pockets has a new spokesperson, celebrity chef Jeff Mauro, who’s known for his Food Network series “Sandwich King”!

As the ‘Sandwich King’, I know what elements go into making the perfect sandwich,” Mauro said. “I’ve always enjoyed HOT POCKETS sandwiches, but the new and improved varieties are incredibly good. Offering a sandwich trifecta – with new premium cuts of meat, new buttery seasoned crusts and real cheese, it’s the perfect combination of quality ingredients and delicious flavor. The new HOT POCKETS sandwiches taste great, and I look forward to reintroducing them to fans everywhere.

Seriously, who better to be a spokesperson for Hot Pockets brand sandwiches than the ‘Sandwich King’?
