January 8th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
In recent years, Kale has ascended to the upper echelons of the veggie world, and is now a staple in everything from pies to salads at Trader Joe's. With appetizers top of mind during holiday party season, we think small bites made with this leafy veg have the potential to make all other hors d'oeuvres green with envy. Especially when those small bites arrive in the form of Trader Joe's Spinach & Kale Bites.
Spinach & Kale Bites made their debut just in time for the holidays in 2012, and were scheduled to make their seasonal exit shortly thereafter. They proved such a success, however, that they became an everyday favorite in our stores. We still think they're ideal to have on hand during the holiday hustle and bustle. Bite-sized and vibrant, these appealing appetizers are made exclusively for Trader Joe's with a blend of spinach and kale, mixed with onion and Parmesan cheese, then lightly dusted with panko breadcrumbs for a bit of added crunch. Keep them in your freezer, so when those unexpected guests show up around the cocktail hour, you can just pop them in the oven (the Spinach & Kale Bites, not the guests) and you'll have an impressive hors d'oeuvre to serve with a glass of wine or light cocktail.
We're selling each 7.5 ounce box of 10 Bites for $3.99, 50¢ lower than their price last year -- their success has brought with it the beloved "economies of scale", that enabled us to lower our price. You'll find them in our freezers.
