Product Review: Paleo Wraps

{Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. Paleo Wraps supplied me with a free pack of wraps to try, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.}

As some of you know based on Facebook and my curried banana wrap post from last week, I’ve been taste testing some Paleo Wraps. Well, I’ve officially finished off the pack of seven and the verdict is out: these suckers are good! Not only that, but they are 100% paleo and raw too.

The wraps are pure and simple — just coconut meat and coconut water (both derived from organic coconuts), which is partly why they appealed to me in the first place. The wraps are versatile with a neutral flavor and store well (no refrigeration required). They’re great for on-the-go, travel and everyday meals for kids and adults alike. There are seven wraps in a pack and they come layered between parchment paper, to keep the wraps from sticking together. The wraps are thin, yet flexible with a really subtle crispness. They can be used for both warm and cold fillings, but I found cold fillings to work a bit better. When filled with something warm and juicy, the wraps fall apart a little bit, but that’s pretty typical of any sort of wrap — grain-free or not. It wouldn’t stop me from filling it with warm meat or scrambles though. Messiness is sometimes part of the experience! And actually, the only wrap that truly fell apart on me was my scramble (pictured below). It was extra juicy because of the tomatoes and bechamel sauce.

Aside from my curried banana wraps, I filled my Paleo Wraps with shredded pork, bacon, avocado and chard, deli chicken with yellow mustard, cucumber and avocado, shredded chicken with Tessemae’s BBQ sauce and veggies, and a scramble with sausage, veggies and leftover bechamel sauce (recipe courtesy of Sarah Fragoso’s new Italian cookbook, but made with butternut squash instead of sweet potato). The wraps tasted great with everything, and I would definitely eat any of these combinations again.

At $8.99 a pack, the wraps are a little pricey, but I think they’re fine as a splurge once in a while or for special occasions and travel. If they were a little cheaper and more readily available in my area, they’d probably be a staple in my house all the time though! I haven’t seen them in any grocery stores that I shop at, but did discover via their website that a few New Seasons stores carry them. I imagine the wraps are time consuming to make and that an ample amount of coconut meat is needed to make a single pack, so I’m sure that price is set for good reason. After tasting the wraps in numerous different ways though, I totally think the price is worth it from time-to-time. I really have no complaints about this product!

The wraps can be purchased online at the Paleo Wraps website and you can also check the site to see if they’re sold in your area.

Have any of you tried Paleo Wraps? If so, what did you think?

    I contacted the natural foods co-op that carried this brand of products, per the info on the website, and found out they only carried the bread. Talked to the person in charge of ordering and was told that their supplier does not carry the wraps at this time. Darn! They are pretty pricey if you have to order them and pay shipping, too….

    In a strange way, I think it’s appropriate that processed (even if it’s Paleo) “splurge” stuff should be pricey and difficult to source. It’s like making a Paleo muffin: the ingredients are expensive and the process is labor-intensive. A great deterrent, and makes you appreciate the special occasions more!

      Totally! That’s a good way to look at it šŸ˜‰

    These look great! I would love to try these wraps. I looooove wraps and they make for such perfectly portable lunches for work.

      They’re so good, Melanie! I bet you’d love them!
