Trader Joe’s Camembert Cheese and Cranberry Sauce Fillo Bites Review

The pros:  Trader Joe’s Camembert Cheese and Cranberry Sauce Fillo Bites are crunchy, flaky, tasty appetizer that I found addicting.  Cranberry adds just enough acid to make this exciting on the palate.  Serve this at a party and these will disappear.

The cons:  Only 8 pieces come in a package.  Watch cooking times.  Mine were done in 8 minutes in a convection toaster oven.

The verdict:  For $3.99, this is small but a really tasty treat.  These are the right balance of smooth melty cheese that has a lot of similarities to brie.  A small dash of cranberry sauce that added just the right amount of acidity.  Without it this would not be the same.  The fillo adds both crunch and a flaky texture that might make a small mess so cocktail napkins or a plate are a must with serving these.  I’ll be picking more of these up.

Would I buy this again?  Yes.  Add this to your list of awesome appetizers.  Would be great for the holidays, New Years Even, a family get together or even watching a game with friends.  Just be warned, the fillo will make a mess due to it’s flaky nature.  Awesome flavor that I hope will not end up being seasonal.   It’s absolutely worth a try in the freezer aisle of Trader Joe’s.
