Mozzarella balls

I really did contemplate doing up a "recipe" for this, starting with your own mozzarella, cutting it into balls, adding in the olive oil, sprinkling in some pepper, garlic powder, basil, oregano and red pepper. But the premade balls are found at every deli counter I've been to, they're relatively cheap, and they're tasty! They're only about 2g for a full serving and you usually have several brands to choose from.

You can experiment making your own if you want - it's about as straightforward as you can get - but try several of the pre-made versions and keep some around the house for an easy, tasty snack!

From a visitor:
Mozzarella "sizes": Ovaline are quarter pound balls (~ 250 grams) Bocconcini are approximately 1/8 pound balls Ciliegine are about 1/3 of the above) ~ 30 grams Perlini are small, pearl sized balls.
