Pagoda Cream Cheese Wontons Review

Pagoda Cream Cheese Wontons

We were on a bit of an egg roll kick for a while here at Freezer Meal Frenzy, and during that period, we discovered the Pagoda brand. We tested out their Pork Egg Rolls, which really satisfied our egg roll craving, as well as their Vegetable Egg Rolls, which we didn’t like quite as much as the pork version. We’re also hoping to try the chicken version in the near future.

However, Pagoda does more than just egg rolls. Today we’re checking out one of the non-egg-roll items in this line, the Pagoda Cream Cheese Wontons.

The box features cooking instructions for conventional oven and air fryer; there are no microwave instructions to be seen. However, even in the conventional oven — which is the method we used — these don’t take all that long to cook. Eleven minutes in the oven and they should be ready to rock. (You can read the full cooking instructions by scrolling down to the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

This appetizer comes with sides of sauce, so the sauce packets will have to be thawed as well, but all you have to do is toss them into a glass of lukewarm water while the wontons are cooking. It shouldn’t cause you any difficulties.

There are four sauce packets here for some reason, which is more than enough sauce for the wonton portion in the box. We split these wontons between two reviewers, and each only used a single sauce packet. We’re not sure why Pagoda included four sauce packets here, but if you’re a sauce fanatic, know that Pagoda definitely have your back.

According to the box, you should expect to find eight to ten wontons inside. Our box had exactly ten. Now, we accidentally overcooked ours by a couple minutes (we weren’t paying close enough attention to our timer), so the cream cheese started coming out of the edges, as you can see in the image below.

Even so, everything tasted great. The outer shell is thinner than we were expecting, so your teeth sink right through it with little resistance. Our extra cook time made them a little crispier than usual, but we didn’t have any trouble biting into them. These ended up pretty great.

The cream cheese in the centers is the real star of the show though. This stuff is fantastic. It has a rich, semi-sour flavor and a creamy consistency that’s pretty much perfect for a wonton filling. We absolutely love this.

The sauce packets contain a sweet chili sauce that brings the whole thing together. It’s a sweeter sauce that’s not spicy at all, though you will see pepper flakes in it. Flavor-wise, it reminds us a little bit of a sweet teriyaki. When the flavor of the sweet sauce combines with the sour cream cheese and the savory shell, you’ve really got a taste sensation that’s worth getting excited about.

The box claims that there’s only a single serving inside. While we did split ours in half, we do think that a person could scarf down a full box no problem. Both of our reviewers wanted more when they finished their halves. Of course, these aren’t low in calories. That single-box serving contains 640 calories and 1,070 mg of sodium. While these are delicious, you’ll probably want to avoid eating them every day.

The Pagoda Cream Cheese Wontons are quite good, even when slightly overcooked. They’re not super filling and they’re loaded with calories, so you’ll need to be careful with them. Still, they make for a pretty tasty snack or appetizer. If you’re craving wontons, these oughta do the trick!
