Alexia All Natural Mozzarella Stix Review

Alexia All Natural Mozzarella StixI have not touched, looked at or even smelled a fried mozzarella stick since I learned about trans fat - it's one of those foods I just about gave up and really don't crave it much. But when I saw that a company was trying for a healthier take on these, my inner food product critic was quite curious, so I picked up a pack of Alexia All Natural Mozzarella Stix from the frozen food aisle of the supermarket.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: (37 grams) 2 stix
Calories: 120
Total Fat:7 grams, 11%
Saturated Fat:1 grams, 5%
Sodium: 220 mg, 9%
Carbohydrates: 13 grams
Fiber: < 1 gram, 0%
Sugars: < 1 gram
Protein: 5 grams

As the picture on the box shows, you can see spices dispersed throughout the light batter, which adds a flavor to the delightful crunch which you get after 11 minutes in the oven (4 minutes longer than suggested). These taste of these warm gooey breaded snacks will definitely knock your socks off! The stix contain a nice combination of smooth white cheese (which is stringy like a mozzarella stick should be) and a light coating. Another plus is that these stix did not ooze grease like the majority of traditional mozzarella sticks. But the picture on the box is a little deceiving as the stix are much smaller what's pictured on the box! They are about the length of my pinky and only twice the width.

The serving size of Alexia All Natural Mozzarella Stix is only 2 stix and there are 6 servings per box. Each serving provides 11% of the daily value including 1 gram of saturated fat (5% of the DV), less than 1 gram of sugar and fiber plus 5 grams of protein. There are only 16 ingredients and they are all 100% recognizable by the average individual.

I paid $2.50 for Alexia All Natural Mozzarella Stix, which is reasonable. But the serving size is a bit small and the only thing that kept me from eating more than 2 stix was the idea of having to heat up the oven and wait 11 minutes again. They are tasty, but not the right snack if you are truly hungry.
