Review: Sandwich Petals

Following the gluten-free diet can leave one feeling like there are sub-par choices for some products.  I know that I felt that way, as did Jon, when we first started the diet when it came to wraps & tortillas.  Unless I wanted to make my own, I had to use what I could find on the market.  While we did find a couple of acceptable tortillas, nothing we found was phenomenal.  Until now.

Let me introduce you to the Sandwich Petal.

What is a sandwich petal you ask?  It is a gluten-free flatbread or wrap that is packed full of good-for-you stuff.  More about sandwich petals:

    • Gluten-free – continuously lab tested by American Institute of Baking to be gluten-free (less than 20 ppm)
    • Carbohydrate nutritionally deliberate– less than 24 grams per petal
    • Virtually allergen free – Contains Zero: Dairy,Egg, Peanut,Tree nut, Shellfish, Soy, Wheat.
    • Diabetic & diet friendly – low glycemic ultra-low blood sugar rise due to low sugar content and very slow digestion
    • Omega 3 – heart healthy
    • Prebiotics – helps digestive system health
    • Delicious – Agave Grain (think honey but better), Spinach Garlic Pesto, and Chimayo Red Chile
    • Easy storage – no freezing or refrigeration needed
    • Convenient – easily fits in a sandwich bag for easy meals on the go at work, play or traveling

Jon has been eating these in wrap form like it is his job!  He also created a new, longer soft taco by rolling folding the sandwich petal long-ways.  I wish I had taken a picture of that!  His favorite way to eat the petals is with deli turkey, shredded cheese, chopped dill pickles, ketchup and shredded lettuce.  The sandwich petals picture above are the Chimayo red chile version.

The sandwich petals are only 100 calories per petal and can be stored on the counter (60 day shelf life).  They don’t have to be refrigerated or frozen.  I do heat them for 15-30 seconds in the mircowave to make rolling them up easier, as recommended on the package.

Sandwich petals can be purchased right from the website.  They are $25.00 for 3 flavors, which is 36 wraps.  Shipping is free in the continental US.  If you are unsure as what to do with the sandwich petals, make sure to check out the recipes page for inspiration!

Have you tried the sandwich petals before?  If so, what did you think?

    First time I have seen these reviewed anywhere; they are so great. If I go to meet my sisters for lunch, I will take one along and have the cafe make a wrap for me on my Petal. Never been told no, and I get so tired of salads, salad and more salad for lunch.
