In Thai cuisine, spring rolls are a classic appetizer and mango-flavored sticky rice a palate-cleanser and dessert, but Trader Joe's Mango & Sticky Rice Spring Rolls bridge the space between those two disparate ends of the meal. The flaky, golden spring rolls are filled with sweet and succulent Nam Dok Mai mango and sticky rice, combining the convenient finger food with the tasty Thai dessert.
In Thai culture, spring rolls symbolize wealth because of their resemblance to gold bars. Nonetheless, the Trader Joe's take is affordable, at $2.99 per box (or the equivalent of about 60 cents per spring roll.)
The Mango & Sticky Rice Spring Rolls come frozen in boxes of five. To prepare, bake them for about ten minutes or pan fry them until crispy.
