La Tortilla Factory low-carb wraps are perennial bestsellers
When I started out on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the biggest obstacles I faced was what I could eat as a healthy substitute for bread. It's nice have a bunless cheeseburger or a breadless deli meat and cheese sandwich for a while, but you start to get the inkling for SOMETHING to wrap your low-carb foods in.
That's why I was so happy to find La Tortilla Factory low-carb wraps and I've been a big fan of these ever since. In fact, I keep a couple of packages of these ever-versatile wraps on hand at all times.
About six months ago I noticed my local grocery store had stopped carrying these wraps despite the fact I bought so many packages of them. When I complained to the manager, he apologized profusely and brought in about 25 packages of each of the flavors: Original, Garlic & Herb, and Green Onion. "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man" has spoken. LOL!
Just one tortilla gives you a mere 50 calories, 5g protein, 2g fat, 8g dietary fiber, and just 3g net carbs. It really is the PERFECT wrap regardless of what your diet plan is. For years these excellent low-carb wraps have been endorsed right there on the packaging by Drs. Michael and Mary Dan Eades from Protein Power as well as low-carb cookbook author Fran McCullough.
But now they've decided to change their packaging. Uh oh! Does this mean they're taking my favorite low-carb wraps away because I've seen it happen before? Or, perhaps they are keeping the product exactly the same and merely changing the look and name to attract new customers--like with Calorie Countdown milk and Quaker's Q-Smart bars.
According to the square sticker I saw on the front of my latest package of La Tortilla Factory low-carb wraps, this is simply a "New Look...Same Great Product" which is coming soon to a grocery store shelf near you. If you've never seen these before, then allow me to show you the old packaging as well as the new packaging.
THE OLD PACKAGING:
THE NEW PACKAGING:
I like the new "festive" look of the new packaging as well as the name "Smart & Delicious" which is a good marketing strategy to distinguish this brand from the "dumb & nasty" high-carb tortillas made with white flour!
One thing I especially love about the new packaging is how "Low Carb" is such a prominent word on the label along with the use of "High Fiber" coming in a close second. The phrase "low-fat" doesn't even show up on the new packaging for the "Low-Carb" version of the wraps even though they fall into that category, too. You gotta love it! Of course, the low-fatties get their own version, too.
People who are livin' la vida low-carb need to continue to support companies that make products like La Tortilla Factory low-carb wraps because they are giving us healthy, delicious, and nutritious foods to make our low-carb lifestyle that much more enjoyable! Be looking for the Smart & Healthy Tortillas in your area and ask the grocery store manager to stock these.
