* Here's how to make a mix appear to be low-carb. On the package, show a serving size that would leave a mouse hungry after eating it. The package displays carb levels for a serving of "3" pancakes. However, mixing the amount of flour for that serving yields barely enough batter to make 3 "silver dollar" pancakes -- nowhere near 3 normal-sized ones.
Taste wasn't bad, but the texture was spongy. Will not buy again.
* Just horrible!! They look nice when you make them, but the taste is just awful. I can't explain it...it is like this doughy aftertaste that makes taking another bite pure misery. I didn't want to waste the pancakes, but I ended up throwing them away.
* I bought this based on reviews on this site. Unfortunately I found them to be very wrong. Although the pancakes looked like the proper consistency, they were awful! I put a very small amount of the sugar free syrup on the side and only dipped the pancakes into the syrup and it still didn't help. The consistency is like wet foam! I threw the pancakes away. I have been on low-carb for 5 years and still couldn't stomach these.
* Read the reviews so thought I'd give it a try. Cannot believe people thought this was good. Awful taste. I eat sugar free low carb all the time and this was bad. Oh well, maybe I got a couple bad batches. Hushpuppie mix makes much better pancakes using only water and the mix.
* I honestly don't know how this product has so many good reviews. I used the mix to make waffles and they looked really nice when cooked. However, I took one bite and had to spit it out. I could not choke it down. The taste is really indescribable. A cross between cardboard and foam rubber sprinkled with bug spray maybe. No way would I buy again. I will go back to Maple Grove Farms.
* This is hands down no holds barred the NASTIEST tasting stuff I have ever tried. I'd rather eat socks. No amount of syrup could help mask the horrible taste. I'll take my chances and eat the real stuff and workout a little more to work off the carbs
