Oven-Baked Cheese Bites

January 20, 2017 in Category: What's New

It’s no secret that we love cheese here at Trader Joe’s—stroll on over to our cheese case and you’ll see what we mean. And what is there not to love? Cheese just makes everything better. (See: burgers, baked potatoes, pasta, crackers, casseroles, omelets, sandwiches, vegetables... ad infinitum.)

So why, then, should you not be able to enjoy cheese anytime, anywhere? That’s a trick question, because you should be able to enjoy cheese anytime, anywhere. Now, with a pouch of Trader Giotto’s Oven-Baked Cheese Bites in hand, you can.  

The brainchild of a historic, Italian dairy and a well-known Grana Padano producer, Trader Giotto’s Oven-Baked Cheese Bites are a snack-time dream come true. Made with a tangy blend of Grana Padano and semi-aged cheese, these crunchy little nuggets are boldly cheesy, packed with protein (15 grams per serving), and all but carbohydrate-free (less than one gram per serving). And thanks to some nifty, patented baking technology, these Cheese Bites are completely shelf-stable, even without the use of additional preservatives.

Munch on a handful (or two… or three…) of Oven-Baked Cheese Bites anytime you’re craving a snack that really satisfies. Crumble them atop salads or open-faced sandwiches to add a cheesy, crouton-y crunch without the extra carbs. Or toss a few atop a bowl of hot Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup for some extra umami on a cold, rainy day.

The lowest price we’ve seen elsewhere for similar cheese snacks is $3.99 per pouch (and we’ve seen them for as much as $5.99 per pouch—eek!), so we are thrilled to be selling each 2.12-ounce pouch of Trader Giotto’s Oven-Baked Cheese Bites for just $2.49. You’ll find them in our snack aisle.
