Made of a crust of kataifi (shredded phyllo dough) with an "interior blend of mozzarella and myzithra, a ricotta-like cheese made from sheep or goat milk," the frozen dessert bears some similarity to our version of it ... but isn't quite the same. It comes with a sachet of pistachios and a separate pack of syrup to be drizzled over it once it's baked.
Now, while some people have already tried and loved it, we're having a difficult time accepting frozen kunafa/knefe.
Trader Joe's "Kunefe" has quickly gained online popularity and is all over Twitter and Instagram.
To say that it has divided people is an understatement because while many are excited about it, others just can't fathom the idea of it.
