Revolution Foods hopes to appeal to families looking for kit convenience but on a budget with its new Dinner Hero product, now available in grocery stores. The product, which feeds four and retails for about $5, contains the spices and whole grains required to scratch-cook a meal at home; buyers add a protein of their choice, à la Hamburger Helper.
