* Review: Two new frozen cheese snacks caught my kids' eyes recently -- Farm Rich's four-cheese sticks and OreIda Hot Bites stuffed jalapeno peppers. Sorry, OreIda. Farm Rich's four-cheese sticks won the taste test hands down. They're tangier than regular fried mozzarella sticks and much less stringy. OreIda's Hot Bites, on the other hand, didn't match the restaurant version of a fried jalapeno appetizer. I tried the cream cheese and the Monterey Jack cheese varieties. Each suffered from too much breading.
