January 8th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Cuteness certainly doesn't make food taste better, but when something that is truly delicious is also incredibly cute, well, it certainly becomes more appealing. Trader Joe's Chicken Parmesan Lollipops have pretty much cornered the market on cuteness for the holiday season. And while being so cute, they really do taste like chicken parmesan… on a stick!
Shall we deconstruct the cuteness? Each piece is filled with pieces of white meat chicken, mozzarella, tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese -- the basic ingredients of any Chicken Parm. Rather than breading the chicken on its own, we've enveloped all of these ingredients in a crunchy, panko crust. And then put it on a stick, of course. They're cute -- we mentioned that, right. They're portable (that food-on-a-stick thing is handy!). And they're incredibly satisfying -- crispy on the outside, cheesy & savory on the inside.
Chicken Parmesan Lollipops, exclusive-to-Trader Joe's, are easy to pass and easy to eat -- even while standing up at a party! That's a feat of modern entertaining technology right there. They're also deliciously affordable, at $4.99 for each eight ounce box of 10 Pops. You'll find these cute apps in our adorable freezers.
