Review of Totino's New Pizzeria Rolls
One of my favorite foods (besides ketchup of course) is pizza in any way shape or form (well I do have some limits - example - you'll never find me partaking of an olive, goat cheese and spinach pizza). So when I got a chance to review Totino's new flavors of pizza snacks for free and I would be given a prize pack for myself courtesy of General Mills and MyBlogSpark, I said a big "yes please!" I was told to try all 3 new flavors which are Cheesy Garlic, Chicken Parmesan and Meatball Marinara. Unfortunately since it's such a new product the two grocery stores that I routinely shop at (Food Lion and Giant) does not carry them yet. But I was able to find 2 out of 3 flavors at another grocery store chain (Safeway) further away from the castle. They come in a 40 count package. I tried the Cheesy Garlic and Chicken Parmesan. The store either did not carry the Meatball Marinara flavor or else it's a popular flavor because I could not find them anywhere.
My favorite was the Cheesy Garlic because the cheese was actually stringy when melted (which is a good thing). They are full of cheesy, oooey gooey goodness. For those people who do not enjoy cheese - what is wrong with you?? It's good just as they are but I think they would also taste great with a tomato dipping sauce. The Chicken Parmesan didn't taste very chickeny to me, the ingredients list chicken but it must be very finely chopped. It still tasted good, but just not as I expected them to be.
As far as I know, their new line only comes in the big 40 count package. I like their smaller boxes (the 15 count snack) and would like be more likely to buy them if they came in the smaller boxes rather than the big bag. Full confession - I buy the smaller boxes - which is supposed to be 2.5 servings, but I can easily eat an entire box at one sitting. Even though they are called a snack food, I eat them as a lunch. I don't think of snack foods as something that should be warmed/cooked.
If you "like" the Totino's facebook page Totino's on Facebook, from time to time they have limited time coupons that you can use.
