I think I have tooted enough about the Paleo wraps, so it's time for me to actually review them.
The Paleo wraps are made of nothing more than organic coconuts and coconut water. They are a handy little beauty that can be used for just about anything you decide you want to wrap.
They are light on calories and carbs and give just a bit of fiber.
They are vegan and raw, GMO free with no salt added. It just gets better and better, doesn't it?
Now the thing that made me giddy about them was that they are gluten free! My little munchkin has a wheat allergy so we avoid gluten like the plague. It's always nice to find something that enables our diets to expand.
The texture is light as well. It has a little bite to it. Once on your palate, it’s almost as if it will melt in your mouth if you keep it there long enough. It’s not crunchy but requires chewing, so for those like me who enjoy texture in their foods, the wrap gives you that.
They are light, thin, pliable and have a hint of coconut flavor. The coconut flavor is mild but you can definitely taste it. So I would only have these with things I didn't mind having a bit of coconut added to them. I wouldn’t, though, rule out anything without trying because the taste has the potential to add a slight kick of a ‘lil something different to some of the most unsuspecting foods.
The clerk at the store where mine where purchased said she has customers who enjoy the wraps with nothing in them. I just gave that a try and can see how that might be a nice little snack at times, especially if you have the taste for something coconutty.
The greatest feature about these wraps, other than the fact that they are gluten/allergen free is that they have a nine month shelf life and they do not need to be refrigerated. So you do not have to be in a rush to finish them. You can take your time searching for awesome recipes to try and experimenting at your own pace.
The Paleo wraps are definitely worth a try. If you don’t like the taste of coconut at all, you won’t like them. But if you do like coconut or are merely open to the flavor coconut can add, the wraps will open up a delicious new world of variety for you.
I enjoyed my first Paleo wrap as a shrimp taco and it was love at first bite. I’m sold on these babies. I will be posting this grilled halibut and shrimp taco recipe soon, so check back.
If you are in Houston, you can get purchasing information from my prior post, here.
So, how about you? Have you tried the Paleo wraps? What did you think? Give us the skinny on your first wrap...what was in it?
