The pros: Trader Joe’s Pre-Sliced Mozzarella Tasty, already sliced, slices are a good size, enough salt to ensure tasty cheese.
The cons: This is 12 ounces not 16 so plan accordingly.
The verdict: For $4.99, this is an awesome Mozzarella to eat straight from the package. It’s also good to cook with and melt. For $4.99 it’s competitive with a lot of other grocery store brands. I’ve bought this several times and will likely buy it again before the week is over.
The nutritional information and the ingredients:
From the back of the package you get a product that looks like it has been sliced evenly:
This cheese you can eat straight from the package, make a caprese salad, or make Spiedini Romano. If you don’t know what Spiedini Romano is, it’s basically similar to a grilled cheese but vastly improved due to an anchovy butter wine sauce.
Would I buy this again? Yes and Yes! However, be careful when shopping. Trader Joe’s Pre-Sliced Mozzarella can easily be confused with another product, Trader Joe’s Mozzarella Log, that I would say is not nearly as tasty and a pain to cut. It’s good only for shredding and adding to pizza. In fact that is what I used to top Trader Joe’s Organic Frozen Pizza Crusts:
