Brazi Bites Gluten Free Brazilian Cheese Bread Snack Review & Giveaway

 I was provided the below mentioned products in exchange for this post.
     

     When I think about getting together with friends and family I start to think about snacks.  Usually when we get together we pull together some yummy snacks and foods to enjoy.  I often bring a spinach cheese dip and chips or other goodies.  Recently I was introduced to Brazi BitesGluten Free Brazilian Cheese Bread Snacks.  So at the last couple of get togethers I brought along some of these tasty snacks.
   
     Cheese Bread Snacks, commonly known as Brazilian cheese bread or Pão de Queijo, are a South American household staple now available at your local grocery store. The business of bites began when Brazilian native Junea Rocha moved to the US in 2005 to be with her husband Cameron. Junea really missed the cheese bread she enjoyed throughout her life in Brazil. Once a secret family recipe was secured from her mother, she and Cameron got to baking. After much trial and error, researching and accessing the best ingredients, the couple finally made a perfect batch; in fact they were so perfect that they ate them all before they could even cool!

     By starting Brazi Bites, the couple is blazing a trail to share this outstanding traditional food with the US. Fresh off some very impressive growth throughout the Pacific Northwest, Brazi Bites are just about to hit the freezer shelves at Sprouts stores across the USA, coming in three different flavors: Original, Fire-Roasted Jalapeño and All-Natural Bacon. Naturally gluten-free and containing 100% natural ingredients, these delicious bites bake straight from frozen in about 20 minutes, perfect for entertaining or a quick snack any day of the week.


     I first made some for my family as a tasty snack prior to dinner.  We all tried them for the first time together.  We were all happily surprised  by how tasty they were.  They are super simple to make.  They come frozen and should be kept that way until ready to bake.  When you are ready to bake them, then just spread them out on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.  Then let cool for a few minutes and they are ready to enjoy.  I also took some of these snacks to my brother in laws house for Christmas Eve.  Everyone thought they were so good and they wanted my recipe.  Of course I couldn't take the credit and had to let them know where they came from.  But they don't taste like they are from frozen.  Jayden and Evan both love them and they are perfect size for their little hands.       


     Brazi Bites are now available in many sprouts stores across the US.  Brazi Bites come in 3 different flavors, Original Cheese, Cheese & Bacon, or Cheese & fire Roasted Jalapeno.  All 3 have great flavor.  Jayden loves the Cheese & Bacon best.  I think I like the Jalapeno best, but its really hard to choose.  Now that we used them all up I need to run out to Sprouts and get some more.  

Win it:  (1) One Arizona Mama reader will win a packet of each flavor by way of voucher for a store or direct shipment
