Freezer Find: Chung's Spring Rolls

I am SO excited to share this yummy find with you guys!  Anytime I visit my family in Kansas City, I always go to the "big city grocery store" and look for new products to try.  While I was browsing the freezer section this week, I found some of Chung's Vegetable Spring Rolls. 

I LOVE spring rolls (the fried kind) and love Asian food in general, but spring rolls are not something I've mastered cooking from scratch, so I thought I would have to cut them out of my new healthy life.  Well, not so!  These are baked without thawing in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.  They are AMAZING!  They are super crunchy, just like the fried ones from the Chinese take-out place, but with no added oil. 

Now, normally I am not a fan of frozen foods at all, but these do not taste like something from a box.  To me, they are right up there with the best I've gotten from a restaurant.

And check out this ingredient list: 
Crust: Unbleached natural wheat flour, water  (Yeah, that's it!)
Filling: Cabbage, carrots, soy powder, mung bean vermicelli, onions, celery, palm oil, soy sauce, raw sugar, natural flavors, sesame oil, sea salt.
Dipping sauce: Water, raw sugar, pineapple juice, tomato paste, fresh lemon, corn starch, salt, citric acid.

I personally wasn't a fan of the dipping sauce, but I loved the rolls just on their own.

And the best part...2 spring rolls are only 190 calories and 5 grams of fat!  This is my new go-to quick lunch paired with some steamed or stir-fried veggies on the side.

For more information or to find out where you can find these little gems, visit Chung's website.  Just as a disclaimer, they are NOT paying me or compensating me in any way for this post.  I just found these spring rolls and really loved them, so I thought I would share.  :)

  2. These are the best "supermarket" veggie spring rolls on the market! I am SO disappointed that Giant stores in eastern PA have discontinued stocking these in lieu of their taste-free store brand veggie "spring rolls".
