As I mentioned in another review, my wife and I decided on pizza last night and I ended up at the store after work so I could buy one.
I decided to buy a pizza from the deli because I actually prefer that store’s fresh version over most frozen brands. But, it was a bit on the small side and I wasn’t sure it would be enough so, since I had to do some other shopping anyway, I decided to find something to go with it (something that wasn’t garlic bread since I’m getting a bit burned out on that).
I ended up in the freezer section near the freezer that has the Bernie’s Bites selection from the brand Bernatello. I wasn’t really planning on buying anything from that brand (I was mostly just stuck there while waiting for the crowd of people doing their last second Thanksgiving shopping). But, I happened to notice something new; their Mini Mozz Sticks.
While mozzarella sticks really weren’t anything overly different for us, I have had several other products from this label and, with very few exceptions, did like them. So, even though it was going to cost me $3 for the box (I thought that was a bit high considering there weren’t that many inside it), I decided to pick them up.
As I said before, I have had other items from this brand and did think most of them were pretty good. However, this particular product, to be perfectly honest, really didn’t live up to my expectations. This was mostly because both my wife and I thought they had a bit of an odd taste to them. It’s kind of hard to describe, but they weren’t like any other mozzarella stick we have tried and I don’t mean that in a good way.
Also, while the quantity/size of the Mini Mozz sticks did make them perfect for an appetizer (they will keep you satisfied until the main course without filling you up too much), I was very disappointed by the fact the cheese leaked out of about half of them. As my wife described it, it looked like someone had cut them open and drained the cheese right out of them.
If these mozzarella sticks had been cheaper (around $1.50 maybe); I probably would find a reason to recommend this product to people. But, because of the price, I think this particular Bernie’s Bites product is something you should leave in the store’s freezer.
