I Have ordered these twice. We liked the first batch of six but our recent order is rancid. Everyone knows what that rancid odor is. These have it. I am extremely disappointed. Update....all of the packages are rancid. I am so disappointed. If I decide to give them another chance, I will get a refund of they are rancid. Almost $25 is not an insignificant amount of money to throw away.
I bought this excited to be able to eat pasta on my low carb diet. Turns out this is 24 grams of carbs per serving! That's not even close to low carb! That's more carbs from one serving than I am trying to eat all day. Shameful false advertising.
Individual packages are not sealed tightly and I was concerned it would be too easy for something crawly to be in there ... also the carton they were packaged in was torn and broken. Not a great buy for me.
UPDATE: Here's the new updated review!! This pasta used to be one of my favorites.. very al dente and not at all starchy.....well it has changed. Not only have they redone the packaging but also changed the texture up the pasta itself.its very delicate nothing like a firm fettuccine. The pasta used to come in long strips for the most part but the newer version lengths of the fettuccine is about 2 inches nothing like what fettuccine is supposed to be which is long thick pieces of pasta not tiny 2 inch pieces it's much more like mushy angel hair pasta but shorter in length... it's disgusting!! Now the fettuccine itself is thinner more like a linguine but extremely starchy and very mushy and clumps together. I couldn't even finish my dinner tonight..no lie. It's not AT ALL "AL Dente" like it used to be. It was a big pile of mush..disgusting. why would you change the formula when it used to be my favorite pasta.? They should change the name to "AL Mushy" instead of "AL Dente ". I have this on auto ship and that's being changed real quick and it's to bad because I loved the original version of this pasta. Me even thinking about it is giving me a stomachache of how nasty it was tonight. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!! The recipe should of NEVER changed. Ya'll have lost a long time customer due to the fact that this pasta is a mushy starchy mess. I wouldn't even feed it to my dogs. Have been using this for over a year but time to part ways.. yuck!!So disappointed..now I have 6 packs of this pasta I will never ever use again.. total waste of money!! The first picture is of the older verdion(that I loved) and the 2nd is the newer delucate mushy version. Same with the packzging. The 1st pic is of the original and 2nd picture is the disgusting new version! Also I broke the original piece off for the pic but it was a much longer length the new version is all short pieces as shown in pic!! My search will start over for a different pasta. Trying to find places that still have the older version in stock!!
Okay let me first start off by saying I'm a huge pasta eater it's one of my favorite things to eat. I probably eat it three to four times a week. That being said I've been looking for an alternative similar to my normal pasta that would be lower in calories and lower in carbs. I decided to give this a try after trying many of the other type of noodles like miracle, pasta zero, etc. I almost gagged eating those type of noodles they are so slimy and disgusting. Well let me tell you I found my holy Grail. this literally tastes as good if not even better than regular pasta. I don't like a soft starchy pasta I like Al dente and these fit the bill perfect. I'm so happy to have found these now when I eat my pasta 4-5 times a week I'm not going to feel guilty. I'm so happy I ordered these on auto-ship. Please don't stop making these they are so good and the only other pasta alternative that actually taste like the real deal..thank you!!
These arrived broken and smashed up the seller did make it right, however that does not detract from the fact that these are not low carb but just lower carb noodles and for the cost alone not worth it!! I decided to rescue the few whole pieces from each bag to try the taste and texture and let me tell you they are soft and a bit chalky/gritty!! I would not recommend these in the least! I want to give a higher rating because the seller refunded me, but at the same time it was a waste of time and money for everyone all around for a bad product!!
NOT low carb. Very disappointed. I'll just donate to food bank I usually read the nutritional info but saw the "carb nada". I always Thor nada meant none. Oh well,live and learn. TRUTH in advertising. 😆
First off, this product's label states "delicious taste & texture for your low-carb healthy lifestyle" so I thought I'd give it a try. This was an experiment and it failed on all levels. I'm no stranger to ersatz carb products and I'd never expect them to be perfect but eating this was a waste of time. Instructions were to boil for 3 minutes then check for doneness and at that point, they felt and tasted like cardboard. Extended boiling did soften them but did not improve the taste.
Lesson learned = not everything has a satisfactory substitute. I threw away four of the six bags as it was past the return date. I did not contact the product seller before I posted this review.
DO NOT BUY if you have a sensitive stomach. Loved the taste of these, but NOT worth the pain and suffering you have to deal with all night in the bathroom. Tried them once, going to throw the leftovers away and try and return the other bags.
