a.) I am passionate about food and love to talk about it.
b.) I really, really love to eat.
And what better way to do both things than to review the product in a blog??? That's what I think, anyway!
Tonight's product: AMY'S TERIYAKI WRAP
I will begin by saying that I LOVE a lot of the Amy's frozen thingies I've tried. My very, very favorite is the Indian Spinach Tofu Wrap. With this in mind, I peeled open my Amy's wrapper with the giddiness of a child on Christmas morning and popped that bad boy in the microwave (making sure to follow cooking time instructions).
When the microwave timer went off, I took my wrap out, artfully arranged it with its wrapper, took a picture and then took a bite. CRUNCH. Yup. Not the soft bite I was expecting of a rice-filled tortilla wrap. No, there was a definite crunch and the culprits? Carrot and...bell pepper?
With a somewhat confused look on my face, I continued to eat my wrap, peeling away the incredibly dry outer layers of the tortilla bread that fell to the plate like broken shards of pottery...and with a similar reverberation.
I continued to peel away the little paint chip layers of bread as I crunched my way through my wrap, trying to like it, before I realized: I didn't. The flavor was not all that great, the tofu was for texture, more than anything, and I did not care for the dried-out exterior.
I hesitated to write such an unfavorable first review but I wanted to inform other, future Amy's Teriyaki Wrap consumers of what might lie in store for them.
Somewhat flavorless but what little flavor I did detect seemed somewhat artificial and a little too sweet.
I really feel I do not need to explain my rating. Crunchy vegetables? No, thank you. A tortilla wrap that I could crack a tooth on? Also no, thank you.
Unfortunately, the very nature of a tortilla wrap does not lend itself to a beautiful exterior. This was no exception. A bland, white, flaking lump of a thing.
There's no getting around it: Amy's are expensive.
Half of the above categories got two stars while the other half got one. This wrap gets two stars overall though because I have had good Amy's products. This just wasn't one of them. I will continue to buy Amy's, though, and try new products.
