Like Cinderella, at the stroke of midnight, all things pumpkin seems to have disappeared. The shelf space is quickly being shifted into Thanksgiving and holiday items. In fact, I got to pick up some old favorites like Brandy Beans and Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Stirring Spoons as stocking stuffers. With the next Fearless Flyer landing Monday, it isn't a shock to see so many new items.
But before I have fun enjoying all the sweets, I checked the freeze aisle for some real food. And yes, there are some real food items.
So here are some brand new but seasonal meatballs. Yes, that means these are going to go away.
So these are a miniature version of the popular Turkey Meatballs. But these are a bit different from the regular variety.
First off, these are miniature. And for those low carb people, these clearly have more carbs in them. They are flame broiled so they are already cooked.
Also, the picture shows a sauce or gravy which isn't present in these either. There are quite a few meatballs in this little bag and are the perfect size for picking up with a tooth pick to serve as an appetizer portion.
Now regardless of how they might be different, one thing remains: they are tasty little bites of Thanksgiving flavor. It is turkey, the familiar seasonings, and cranberries.
The cranberry isn't overwhelming and adds just a bit of tart flavor to these little balls of goodness. The only thing I was longing for was having these with a side of stuffing.
For $4.49 these are priced right, but they are seasonal so they won't be on shelves forever. They are worth a try if you are already a fan of the turkey meatballs and are a fun seasonal option.
Would I buy this again? Yes, I would pick up another couple bags before the season is out.
