Chung's Vegetable Spring Rolls with Sweet and Sour Sauce
I bought Chung's Vegetable Spring Rolls in the frozen aisle at Safeway a few weeks ago. Finally got around to trying them today. They are easy to make in just 2 minutes in the microwave. While they cook in the microwave thaw the sauce packet or packets in a bowl of warm water.
The spring rolls were pretty tasty in my opinion. I liked that they did not get crispy because I used the microwave, but I imagine you could have crispy ones if you used the oven to cook them. The dough is a little thicker than I usually think of for spring rolls, but does not affect the flavor in my opinion, as they are still stuffed with plenty of veggie filling.
I like that the spring rolls are conveniently packaged in a tray with each separate. This makes it easy to only make a few without having to try to break them apart, which tends to happen with stuff packaged touching in the freezer for a long period of time. There are three little sweet and sour sauce packets to go with five spring rolls. One packet is almost enough for two, in my opinion, although I like two as a serving size and it would be better if there were only four or there were six spring rolls.
Only thing I do not like about Chung's Spring Rolls is the sweet and sour sauce. Immediately it tasted wrong to me. The pineapple flavor is too strong making it too sweet and not a good balance of sweet and sour like the sauce should be.
