The pros: Trader Joe's Mini Greek Spirals are a delicious appetizer in the freezer aisle.. Ready in about 20 minutes, this is also a way to serve a non-fried item as well. Has a small (but contained) cheese filling that will remind of you of the flavor of green onions in a good way.
The cons: Nothing comes to mind.
The verdict: For $2.99 for 12 it's a good deal. Perfectly crispy in about 20 minutes and nothing fried here. A nice flavor contrast to so many of the offerings in the freezer aisle. Would be a nice holiday appetizer to serve as everyone will only reach for 1 or 2 as they are much bigger bites than some of the other appetizers.

Would I buy this again? For me, this is a yes. Not only are these inexpensive, but they are a nice size, brown perfectly, and remind me of mini spinach pies except leeks (which taste like scallions) in the place of the spinach. They were visually attractive and would take a couple bites to finish. They also don't require a fork and knife as the pastry does not allow your hands to get greasy. Speaking of which, it's also nice to not have a fried appetizer for everything. As soon as I eat the rest of the box, I'll be picking up another
