Amy’s Vegan Margherita Swirls Review

Amy's Vegan Margherita Swirls

The Freezer Meal Frenzy staffers have a weakness for all kinds of unhealthy snacks, and pizza rolls are on the long list of junk food that we love. That’s why we really appreciate Amy’s Swirls. These snacks feel like a grown-up version of a classic pizza roll — and they’re adult enough that we can slyly refer to them as “not junk food, not really.” So when we spotted Amy’s Vegan Margherita Swirls, we were excited to sample a cheese-free version of these tasty treats.

Cooking these swirls should have been an easy process. Preheat the oven, heat for 10 minutes, and enjoy. Simple, right? Unfortunately, getting these snacks ready is a bit of a hassle. Heating them up isn’t the problem; they come out of the oven perfectly browned. The issue, however, is when you try to get these off the pan.

Per usual, we laid down a sheet of aluminum foil before we cooked these up, and we could NOT get the cooked pastries off the pan. After a lot of work, we managed to transfer everything to our plate, but we had to double-check the bottoms of each swirl to make sure they hadn’t taken some tinfoil with them. We checked some of our old reviews, and we just didn’t seem to have this issue with Amy’s other swirls. Maybe it’s something about the way the vegan cheese melts?

That vegan cheese, by the way, is pretty convincing. We’re not always a huge fan of cheese substitutes — some of them have a weird taste and texture — but this seem pretty close to the real deal to us. Messy though these pastries may be, the faux cheese melts perfectly. It’s exactly what we want out of a pizza roll.

The swirls are pretty simple; they mostly consist of vegan cheese and a tomato sauce. While we prefer some of Amy’s more unusual swirls, this is still a basic tasty treat. Because these are made with wheat flour, they probably won’t totally satisfy your craving for Totino’s style pizza rolls, but they’re still a solid take on a classic snack. The wheat flour also makes these pretty hearty. This is a fairly filling little snack!

Amy’s Vegan Margherita Swirls aren’t just for vegans — we’d recommend these snacks to anyone looking for a healthier version of pizza rolls. While transferring these swirls from our pan to our plates was a huge headache, we couldn’t help but enjoy them when everything was said and done. You might want to try cooking these on a non-stick silicone mat. If you can avoid the mishaps we struggled with, you just might love these dairy-free swirls.
