Pros: acceptable taste
Cons: okay, okay, they're baby food, price

I suppose I should preface this review by saying that I'm twenty-two years old. I don't have a child, either. So why am I reviewing a baby food? Because I eat it! I'm not really ashamed of it, either. (To be fair, I DO have a 3-year-old little brother, so I first tried these because he didn't want them. But I keep eating them purely because of me!)

Health benefits of a food don't really matter to me, so I can't comment much in that regard. Are the "meat sticks" probably not very healthy? Sure. But they do have Omega-3 fatty acids, which I know are getting more and more good press of late. I really doubt the "meat sticks" (more about that in a second) are full of carcinogens, since they're food for babies and toddlers. One of the main downfalls of the little sausages is the fact that they're basically mystery meat--chicken, turkey, and pork, all wrapped up in one little meaty package. You'd think the marketing people could come up with a better name than 'lil' sticks meat sticks,' but what can you do?

If you like Vienna Sausages, try the Gerber version--they taste a lot better. They cost a lot more than Vienna Sausages, though, so you have to reconcile that as well. They're not an all-the-time food for a college-graduated-adult like myself, but they're an interesting little snack.
