Netrition Order - Product Reviews

Recently, I posted about a Netrition order in which I purchased several items I'd not tried before.  Below is my opinion of these products:

153-0114 NOW Almond Flour, Unblanched 10 oz. $4.69 - Pretty much your typical unblanched almond meal.  Because it's unblanched, it's a darker color.  The bag is somewhat smaller than I am used to but the price per ounce is quite a bit lower than many other brands. 

394-0047 Walden Farms Syrup, Blueberry 12 fl oz $3.79 - This is pretty good.  It tastes like real blueberries.  Mixed in Hood Calorie Countdown milk and it tastes a bit like the milk in the bottom of a cereal bowl where real blueberry's had been added.  It would make an awesome pancake syrup.  Other than this, I can't think of many uses.

230-0008 Bob's Red Mill Low Carb Bread Mix 1 lb. $4.39 - It's just okay.  As with many low-carb breads, there is a mild displeasing after taste.  It's not bad but it's not great.

230-0009 Bob's Red Mill Low Carb Baking Mix 1 lb. $4.39 - This has pretty much the same ingredients as the bread mix.  I've not tried it yet but expect it to taste about the same.

443-0001 Toufayan Bakeries Low Carb Pita Bread 6 pack $$3.09 - These are a bit thicker and more bready than Joseph's Pita but not as big of round.  They have a very subtle soy-like taste but it's not overpowering.  While I do like them, I think I still like Joseph's brand pita better.  It's really just a question of do you like your pita soft and bread-like or thin and more tortilla like.  If you like it bready then this pita is for you.

464-0004 Joseph's Middle East Bakery Reduced Carb/Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Tortillas 6 tortillas $2.79 - A bit on the rubbery side.  I still prefer the Mission brand low-carb tortillas even though they have a higher carb count.

464-0005 Joseph's Middle East Bakery Reduced Carb/Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Lavash Bread 4 square breads $2.99 - The sheets of Lavash were stuck together.  I had a very difficult time pulling them apart without tearing.  If they didn't stick together so bad, I think I'd prefer these over just about any low-carb tortillas.  But due to their being hard to pull apart, I will not buy again.

thanks for the reviews. Not sure if you have a PUBLIX near you but they carry the tofu pita pockets in low carb. I love them but can't eat them much....I tend to get carried away.
