I usually get the Casa di Bertacci ones from Sam's club. I've had the Mama Whatever brand too. The Mama brand was okay but we really like the Sam's Club ones. I'll keep an eye out for the ones you tried Addie. They sound good.

Thanks for the heads up, Addie...I'll have to keep a look out for that brand.

Trader Joe's has some good frozen ones, too.

Now that my stomach isn't in knots, I'm craving food, meatballs! Although that sounds like the worst thing I could eat at the moment!

I ate wheat thins and ginger ale today, they've never tasted better!

The texture of a meatball is as important as flavor to me. If it's hard like a well done burger, it's not right. A meatball should be soft and tender, just barely holding together until you use the edge of your fork to break it in half.

Do the Costco ones have a good texture.

PF, are they the Kirkland brand, or are they under another name? I haven't looked to see what Costco carries.

Yes, they have nice chew and are not hard unless you defrost them in the microwave.

I'm not remembering right now, I have graduated my bag down to a quart size zippy to save space. I can check on Wednesday or Thursday when I go in to pick up my meds.
