Cole's Quality Foods New Stuffed Bread Snacks are Taking the Frozen Food Aisle by Storm! (Review) #tastymiddles

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.


Middles combine consumers two favorite things – bread and cheese.  What’s not to love?

It wasn't until I had kids of my own that I realized just how busy parents are, and especially how busy my mom was raising my two brothers and I growing.  She was always on the ball with things, including snack time after we got off the school bus. It was like clockwork she would say, when we walked through the door and dropped our backpacks...we would head to the fridge looking for a drink and quick snack to hold us over until dinner.  And, with three kids with different food tastes, it was a challenge for her to have snacks on hand for each of us to grab.  Now, I am experiencing this firsthand with my two girls.  Savannah is my picky eater, while Bella is more willing to sample foods and has a bigger list of foods she will eat.  

If I let Savannah, she could live off of bagels, mac and cheese, cold cuts, toast with peanut butter and chicken noodle soup.  Snack time is always a challenge with her, as I have to make sure the fridge is stocked with jello, pudding, cheese sticks and apple sauces for her.  But, from time to time she grows tired of these and will start looking for something new to try.  This happened the other day, and it was a good thing that samples of Cole's Quality Food's Middles arrived in the mail to sample.  

What are Middles you ask? 

"Middles are the next best thing shaking up the snacking world from leading frozen bread manufacturer, Cole’s Quality Foods, Inc. Each Middle is stuffed with a delicious, creamy cheese – bringing together all of your favorite things in the simplest way ever. Simply pop in the oven or microwave and enjoy. And because options are everything, you can enjoy six varieties that allow you to customize every snack, dinner, and breakfast. Now go grab a bite!"

We received three of of the Middles which are available at most Walmart stores -- Mac & Cheese filling, cream cheese filling and beer cheese filling.  Use the online store locator to find a retailer who carries Cole’s Quality Foods, Inc. Middles --

Both of the girls thought the illustrations on the boxes were cute.  But, when I told them the flavors they were hesitant at first to try them out.  They weren't sure how bread with mac and cheese inside would taste. You can either cook these up in the microwave (3 middles for 1 cook time and 1 minute rest time) or in the oven for 7-9 minutes.

I usually like cooking frozen foods in the oven over the microwave because it tastes better and the food is not as soggy.  I told my girls to give the Middles a try, and I am glad they listened as this snack was a hit with the girls. While they loved all three varieties, they both agreed that the Mac and Cheese one was their favorite.  

There was just the right amount of mac and cheese stuffed inside the warm bread, making them oh so delicious.  

I was a fan of the 8 everything bagel with cheese cheese.  If you love everything bagels, then you will love this Middles variety.


And the smoothness of the cream cheese center makes the warmed up Middles melt in your mouth.  I could eat a whole box of these if no one was looking. They were that good! :-)

I am so happy we had a chance to sample these stuffed breads as now I have one more snack food to have on hand for the girls (and I) to enjoy when they are looking raid the fridge for a snack.  And, because these stuffed breads cook up quick, they can satisfy their hunger and then go run and have fun as I start dinner.  And, clean up is a breeze as there is never anything left over. :-)  Just an empty plate to wash.

So, if you kids at home and are looking for a way to make snack time easier and less stressful, why not pick up a few boxes of Middles to have on hand.  These outrageously delicious heat-and-serve stuffed bread snack are sure to be a hit with everyone in your family.  The hard part will be just keeping your freezer stocked with them.  I had to run out to Walmart the other day and pick up more of the mac and cheese Middles as the girls asked for it and were sad when they found we were out.  Thankfully Walmart is a few minutes away.  So, in under 15 minutes we were able to run to Walmart and then home to microwave a plate of these tasty stuffed bread snacks. :-)
