Fromagerie Guilloteau, Pélussin, France, partnered with Kroger in early April to sample new, limited edition Crispy Brie Bites under the Fromager d’Affinois brand. The offering included four individual bites in a 4.9oz. plastic tray with an initial suggested retail price of $9.99.
Fromagerie Guilloteau says the "bites" are made by enrobing its double-cream brie in toasted breadcrumbs. Consumers simply brown the bites in the oven, or in a pan over medium heat without adding oil or butter. Officials say the cheese inside becomes warm and melty underneath the crispy breading.
Consumers can add Crispy Brie Bites to cheese board for texture and warmth; use them as salad topping or add to a sandwich.
