Try it Tuesday.....Pillsbury Savorings Flaky Pastry Bites...Cheese and Spinach flavor

I had a coupon, so I was just waiting to spy these little appetizers at one of the local grocery stores. I didn't see them for a long time. Finally I found them, but had lost the coupon by then. They are kind of expensive at almost $4 a box, so I passed on them when I did see them. And,THEN, my local Meijer gave me a coupon to try them for FREE! Woot!

Pillsbury is always making products to tempt me. I'm a big, big carb eater (emphasis on BIG...big behind that is), so I really wanted to try the new Savorings Flaky Pastry Bites. They come in 3 flavors: Buffalo Style Chicken, Mozzarella-Pepperoni, and Cheese and Spinach. I figured the Cheese & Spinach would be my best bet. Don't get me wrong, I love anything made with puff pastry, but I'm not a big fan of buffalo flavored anything and I figured the mozzarella and pepperoni would taste too much like pizza. The cheese & spinach one sounds more like an appetizer-ish combo doesn't it?

There are 12 of these little cuties in a box. Individually, they aren't very big, but appetizers aren't supposed to be monsters. If I were to bring this appetizer to a party though, I'm sure I would need 2-3 boxes. So to me, the price is a little high. Bring it down Pillsbury and I will buy these more often! They are truly TASTY!

They are plump with just the right amounts of cheese and spinach. I can also really taste garlic, so if you like garlic, you will love these. If you aren't a fan, then you had better stay clear because like I said, I could definitely taste garlic.
Even my picky-eater kids tried these and liked them. We were all fighting over them, so we ended up having to split them up. Of course they wanted more. 12 small-ish appetizers don't go far with 5 people.

I bet I could get these cheaper at Wal-mart. I also wonder if they come in a larger size at say, Sam's Club or Costco?

I think I will try the mozzarella & pepperoni next time. Someone else can weigh in on the buffalo.
Now let me think....what other flavors would be tasty in these little puff pastries? How about crab & cream cheese? Artichoke? Bacon? Mushrooms? Oh the possibilities. And I wouldn't have to make them! Just knowing that I could buy something tasty to satisfy us all at a party, makes my cheese bubble! :)

As for the calories and fat....I didn't even look on the box before I threw it out...but something tells me I really didn't want to see it anyway. Hello? It's puff pastry and cheese.

Oh, if you would like a coupon for $1 off, visit the website here.

Next week, I hope to review the new Hershey Kisses....milk chocolate with MARSHMALLOW. Mmmm...those sound devilishly yummo. Something tells me I will find them at Target. Are they actually new? Or am I just behind on the times? Anyway, I've been a bad girl in the calorie and fat department lately and it shows.....but I have a feeling I won't find the willpower to get back to my normal routine until after Christmas. Bad, bad, bad.

Last but certainly not least....today is my niece Kara's birthday!

Happy Birthday to YOU Kara! Enjoy your day and be a little selfish by eating some chocolate and not sharing! Weeeee. Oh, and check your Facebook, I sent you some, "gifts". Luv you.
