Mini Brie Bites

You may be tempted to consider Trader Jacques's Mini Brie Bites a novelty cheese. That would be a mistake. You might also be tempted to accuse us of hubris, but that's just how confident we are that this cheese is oh-so-much more than just cute.
Let's begin with the cheese itself. It's not "Brie-flavored" or "Brie-like." This is Brie. The real deal, from France, made with fresh milk and under the supervision of skilled cheesemakers. It's creamy and buttery – everything you expect from quality Brie. Instead of being crafted in a traditional-size wheel, these are crafted in two-bite size, .9 ounce mini wheels. Other than their size, however, there is no difference between our Mini Brie Bites and the Brie you’d normally enjoy.
A big advantage of the Mini Brie Bites is portion control. Each mini wheel has only 70 calories, so you can indulge in Brie without really indulging at all. Enjoy them as snacks, in sandwiches or salads or even on a cheese tray – just because they're more than cute doesn't mean you can't play up their cuteness anyway. We're selling each 4.4 ounce package of five Mini Brie Bites for $3.99, every day. Pretty cute price.
