@Cerridwyn I got my order in. They’re not that great. The puff itself isn’t bad, but there’s hardly any cheese. Also, the macros aren’t that great - low fat (due to the lack of cheese), but you’d have to eat the entire 5oz bag to get the same protein of a single scoop of whey. I guess they’re less ‘bad’ than a bag of Cheetos but they’re not in the same league as far as flavor and enjoyment.
Seems like the 5oz x 12 bags is a better value for your money. Plus you can just portion them into little ziplock bags. The same kinds you put the marajuanas in (I assume it’s still packaged the same like 'back in the day’s)
Is someone on the staff trying all different kinds of keto foods and passing the ones they don’t like or something? I don’t believe in keto or paleo diets; how about some other kinds of food, if you’re going to sell food?
@Kyeh I don’t know how you cannot believe in keto or paleo without even understanding what it is. Did you know that steak is both keto and paleo? Do you avoid eating steak? What about beef jerky? Or eggs? Or chicken? Or fish? All are strong keto/paleo… However, this product is not paleo or keto. If they’re claiming it is, it’s a major stretch.
@uscpsycho I do understand what it is. I don’t believe in exclusively eating steak and protein etc. and cutting out multiple other healthy foods and putting your body into a state of ketosis. You do you - but don’t just assume I don’t understand those things. I just don’t agree with them.
@Kyeh What makes you think I follow a keto diet? I actually discourage them. But you just said “I don’t believe in keto or paleo diets; how about some other kinds of food” and I was just explaining to you that this is not at all a keto product. It is “some other kinds of food” per your request, so one can only assume you do not know what keto is. If you don’t want to be in a state of ketosis then eating this will help keep you out of it. And it should be pointed out for other users because you mischaracterized this item.
@uscpsycho Okay, fine - my original comment was just an off-hand exasperated remark about how tired I am of food items here being “high protein!” Or “sugar-free!” Or some other supposedly healthy thing. I didn’t dive into the ingredients list but I’m sure anyone into keto and paleo will do so. And pointing out eggs and steak are keto - yeah, I DO know that. And they sell so much jerky all the time!
@Kyeh@uscpsycho But, in fairness, you did a similar thing by implying that anyone who eats steak, eggs, etc, is following a keto or paleo diet, which is also a mischaracterization. You don’t need hyperbole to make your point, @Joedetroit managed to make his without it. Just sayin’.
@ircon96@Joedetroit@Kyeh I didn’t imply that anyone who eats those things is following a keto diet. He said he wasn’t interested in this food item because it was considered keto in his opinion. So if he wants nothing to do with this item just because it is keto, then it follows that he wouldn’t want anything to do with any food item that would be considered keto.
@ircon96@Joedetroit@uscpsycho Nah, you read much too much into what I (she) said.
I didn’t say that I “want nothing to do with this item just because it is keto.” I said I’m tired of all these (many) snacks that seem to be aimed at those who follow keto or paleo diets.
I remember back in the day, Gourmet WOOT used to provide food to buy that was on the website for people to actually try and like. It wasn’t outdated, it wasn’t bad it was just A company that was trying to get people to give it a try and say hey we’re not so bad. It’s something that I have missed, maybe that’s something that we’re going to start seeing?
@Cerridwyn Wait, wasn’t WCC doing the gourmet foods stuff? And now they do the wine for us over here. Can’t recall if they still do expensive foods over on the “W.”
Truth is I got some really good meat products and cheese from that site, but at prices that made most of the comments be “I can get 3 lbs of this at Sam’s Club” not realizing that “charcuterie” (i.e. salami, sausages) handmade local range-raised pork with local spices is not the same as Hormel industro-chem-meatlike products. Same with cheeses, maple syrup, etc. So many complaints it was fun for a while just to see how many stupid whines about prices.
But yeah <rant done> I do miss it because I did get to learn about a lot of new products and producers that way, some of which I still patronize separately.
@Cerridwyn@pmarin I’ve bought at regular retail some products I was introduced to by Meh’s deals. Others, I wouldn’t touch again. (Cough Neoh cough; to me, it has an aftertaste.)
So, in a way, what you described is still happening.
@lehigh I just looked up Gonna Fly Now and the theme was somewhat familiar to me but I would not have known it was specifically used as Rocky montage music, so I think you’re overestimating my knowledge of Rocky
I just received my order of 3, so 36 bags. They should get eaten by next Feb.
I was buying Hippeas from Costco but didn’t like the garlic in them. These don’t have the garlic and pretty much real ingredients so I bought them for about the same price per volume.
Taste is more pea than cheddar and more dense than I expected but they do have a good amount of protein from the peas. Not a lot of flavor compared to the oily/salty snacks but they should be a good alternative vs. fritos and potato chips.
My wife already likes them and I will once I get used to them.
