Mozzarella sticks have hit the big time on restaurant appetizer menus. So it’s no surprise that supermarkets want in on the action. Enter Alexia Mozzarella Stix.
Just pop them in the oven for 10 minutes and dig in. But don’t dig too far. A serving is just two sticks (about an ounce). Alexia is probably using the FDA’s serving for cheese. Most people eat cheese in a sandwich, on crackers, or with other foods. They eat mozzarella sticks with…well, more mozzarella sticks.
If you split the 12-stick box with an unlucky companion, you’re each up to 360 calories and 7½ grams of saturated fat seasoned with 690 milligrams of sodium. Not in the mood to share? Maybe your fat cells will open up a new section for mozzarella-stick storage.
