Frozen Friday: Totino's - Pepperoni Pizza Sticks

Totino's Pepperoni Pizza Sticks are a turnover-style grab-and-go version of their signature Party Pizza. They describe it as "pepperoni pizza in a soft crust."

I bought a box for $2.59 on sale.

These are definitely meant for a quick snack rather than a light meal. They fit somewhere between Totino's Pizza Rolls and their Party Pizza in concept.

Unsurprisingly, the Pizza Sticks offer much the same flavors as the other two varieties. There's cubed bits of slightly spicy pepperoni, mild bits of cheese, and a little more pizza sauce than you get with the the other two. The extra sauce is good for an extra hit of tanginess.

Each stick is individually wrapped in a pouch that doubles as a crisping sleeve. It didn't crisp the crust much at all though, even when I tried increasing the contact between the crisping material and the crust. You could try cooking it for 10 or 20 seconds longer and hope for better results but I was too worried about a sauce and cheese explosion.

The crust is basically like a microwaved version of the crust on a Totino's Party Pizza, which is to say it's soft and bready with a familiar taste. If you're eating it out of the wrapper, be careful as the filling tends to exit out either end of the stick.

Overall, Totino's Pepperoni Pizza Sticks are great if you're a fan of Totino's products in general and quite convenient for a quick snack. I do like the crust on their pizzas and pizza rolls better though. On the other hand, there's nothing to clean up (besides tossing the wrapper) unless you let it go in the microwave too long.
