Try Me Tuesday – Publix Mozzarella Sticks

mozzarella sticksWelcome to this week’s Try Me Tuesday. Each week I will grab a new set of products and test them out. I’ll put the Publix brand up against a national brand product and report back.

I know many times I struggle with what brand to choose. Often a sale or a coupon/sale combination make that an easier decision…but what about those times when you need an item and there is not a sale? Do you grab the house brand or pay more and get the national brand? More importantly, is there really a difference in taste?

mozzarella sticksMozzarella Sticks Results:

  • Publix Mozzarella Sticks – 4
  • TGI Friday’s Mozzarella Sticks – 0

Marinara Results

  • Publix Marinara – 3
  • TGI Friday’s Marinara – 1

Ok so it’s very hard to compare the nutritional info on these because the servings are so different. I also ended up having everyone choose a favorite marinara because there was one that most everyone preferred.

So as you can see by the picture above one of the mozzarella sticks just did not work out! The TGI Friday’s cheese oozed out everywhere! The Publix version required a 7 – 8 minute cook time while the TGI Friday’s required 8 minutes. The picture is what I got after 8 minutes…not a good thing!

My husband decided that if he could mix the Publix cheese sticks with the TGI Friday’s marinara, it would be a perfect combo!

The Publix version was a little cheaper and it was the winner tonight at my house. Though I will admit that the frugal gal in me found it hard to enjoy either when I think about how much money I spent on them. Almost $8 was WAY too much money for these and in my opinion, neither were worth it! My guys were very happy though :-)

Have you guys tried these? Did you have a favorite?
