If you've ever tried cutting down on the carbs, you know the pain of saying goodbye to pizza, breaded cheese sticks and other similar goodies. The cool thing is that as more companies try to create lower-carb and lower-sugar items, the alternatives for these foods just keep getting more varied and better.
Take halloumi cheese. If you've ever fried it, you already know how delicious it is--and how it stands up on its own to where you can pretty much use it to dunk in sauce like a cheese stick. There are lots of cheese stick hacks, from using an almond-based flour to crumbling pork rinds as batter, but plain old halloumi works on its own. That's why Aldi's halloumi cheese sticks are such an awesome find.
Now Aldi has yet another offering--snacking string cheese bites! Not only do they look just as good, but they come in grilled cheese flavor. How perfect is that for folks who miss their grilled cheese sandwiches? Trader Joe's also has a new seasoned cheese product--pizza-seasoned "bread" cheese! It's like a pizza, but cheese only. Folks who've made keto cheese pizza in the air fryer can appreciate this find.
