Best bets for frozen puff pastry "aperitifs" in the US?

anakalia | May 20, 201007:44 PM     4

When I lived in France, my husband and I used to enjoy buying frozen puff pastry "aperitifs" and having a few before dinner with some wine.

We never bought expensive brands, but liked the simple boxes we would get at the Carrefour or Picard. Our favs. were ones like the pastry stuffed with tomato and poppy seeds, ones stuffed with goat cheese, swirls with pesto, etc.

Since moving back the US I havent' seen these much - except recently I saw an Archer Farms (store brand?) at Target in the freezer section. They looked quite similar to what I used to get in Picard in France. I was hesitant to try them, but since then I've kept my eyes open and seen a few boxes of different brands here and there.

Does anyone have any experience with these in the US? Are any of them tasty? Where do you buy them?
