* Review: Burgers and hot dogs are the newest offerings in these refrigerated lunch kits. Each box includes chips or a beverage, with candy for dessert. Their success depends on whether your child is willing to eat a cold hamburger or hot dog. The package specifically says, "no need to heat." Our 5-year-old friend, Emily, said the cold burger -- while fun to put together by herself -- "did not taste real good." I thought the grilled burger offered decent flavor, but tasted like a lonely hamburger left on a platter after an all-day picnic.
