365 Everyday Value Mozzarella Cheese Sticks Review

365 Everyday Value Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Mozzarella sticks tend to make a nice snack food, though we’re not going to pretend they’re a healthy food. Even so, 365 Everyday Value — which is Whole Foods’ brand of frozen food — has created their own take on Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, and we picked up a box for the Freezer Meal Frenzy staff to enjoy.

Our box contained seven sticks, which is probably about average, though the nutrition info on the box claims to expect eight. Eight is a nicer number to divide between people (which is what we did), so we wish our box would have had just one more.

As you can see from the image above, these can get a little messy, as the cheese likes to break loose and spill all over the place. We did cook ours for ten minutes, which is the higher end of the cook time listed on the box. Perhaps if we’d taken these out a couple minutes sooner we’d have avoided the mess.

But mozzarella sticks are a greasy finger food, and they’re going to make a mess no matter what, so it’s really no biggie that these ones exploded on us.

We expect you’ve had mozzarella sticks before, so we won’t spend a whole lot of time describing the flavor. We’ll just say these are comparable to mozzarella sticks you’d get at any greasy spoon-type diner, only less greasy if you decide to cook them in the oven (which we did) instead of a deep fryer (which you can do; there’s even instructions on the box for that). Strangely, these mozzarella sticks also have a little bit of a hint of pepper to them, which isn’t listed on the ingredients, but we’re wondering if there’s something under the “organic spices” category that gives these that very specific flavor.

Watch out for the calories here. While the box claims 110 calories, keep in mind that the suggested serving size is a single stick — way less than anyone would ever eat unless they posses a level of self control we could only dream of.

The 365 Everyday Value Mozzarella Cheese Sticks make a great snack, though keep your eye on the calorie count. Those little buggers add up pretty fast.
