Trader Joe’s Herbaceous Cheesy Bites Review

Trader Joe's Herbaceous Cheesy Bites

Breaded cheese might not be the healthiest of snacks, but it’s still incredibly tasty. The Freezer Meal Frenzy staffers have enjoyed plenty of mozzarella sticks in our time. When we saw that Trader Joe’s had a slightly more adult version of this classic appetizer, we knew we were in for a treat. Trader Joe’s Herbaceous Cheesy Bites are a delicious and decadent way to enjoy one of the world’s finest foods: cheese.

Cooking up these cheesy snacks is a pretty easy process. It took us about 12 minutes to cook these bites in the oven. We didn’t even have to take them out to flip them over in the middle of the process. It’s very easy.

Of course, you’ll want to make sure you cover your baking sheet with aluminum foil before you toss these in the oven. Otherwise, your bites will stick to the pan. You’ll also want to give them a few minutes to cool, as the cheese filling is extremely hot.

These bites are on the small side, but they’re packed with plenty of flavor. Each bite blends mozzarella, parmesan, and cream cheese, giving them a more complex taste than your standard mozzarella stick. The herb seasoning isn’t overpowering, but it keeps the bites from tasting overly rich and makes them a little easier to eat. Without the basil, parsley, dill, and chives, these might have been a little too decadent. As is, it’s hard to stop eating these bites!

If you’re planning on serving these bites to guests, you should know that you can’t count on them to hold their round shape. Several of our bites crumbled to pieces the moment they touched our fork. They might be a little bit messy, but thankfully, that doesn’t get in the way of their taste. While you can pair these treats with marinara sauce, we actually think they’re better served with sour cream!

Trader Joe’s Herbaceous Cheesy Bites feel a little more grown-up than mozzarella bites, but they can still satisfy your cravings for breaded cheese. At 770 calories a box, they’re definitely an indulgence, but we’d say they’re worth it. The crispy coating, gooey cheese, and perfect blend of seasonings makes these bites an amazing appetizer.
