As one American advert said in the 1950s, we can now eat better than any King ever did, because Frozen Vegetables allow us to enjoy the vegetable of our choice at any time of year, no matter what the season.
Many people say they won't eat Frozen Vegetables, only fresh ones. What they don't realize is that the fresh vegetables may have taken 2 or 3 days to reach their supermarket, then sat at the supermarket for another 2 or 3 days. Compare that with Frozen Vegetables, which are usually frozen and packaged within 6 hours of being picked. The frozen end up reaching consumers homes way "fresher" than the fresh.
To make Frozen Vegetables, vegetables are blanched, then packaged and frozen. The blanching prevents them from turning brown during freezing and losing more of their nutrients.
The major brands, though, weren't prepared to compete on lowest price or lower quality vegetables. They launched marketing campaigns about the quality of their Frozen Vegetables, and educated consumers on how Frozen Vegetables were usually superior to fresh. Libby's entered the Frozen Vegetable market in 1946. Green Giant didn't enter the frozen food market until 1962.
