I love many different kinds of bread, but I don't have much experience with pita bread. Since I also prefer the earthiness of whole grain bread, I had to try these Kangaroo Whole Wheat Salad Pockets. The pita come pre-sliced, so all you have to do is fill 'em and eat 'em or just eat them as is. Each pocket holds about 4 ounces of filling for an appropriate pocket sandwich size. It had a varied texture, which I liked, and was solid throughout so that none of the filling escaped from the bottom. The package emphasizes the honey in the product, but I wasn't able to detect any sweetness as I ate it.
One pocket has 80 calories, no fat, and no cholesterol. There are 140 milligrams of sodium (6% DV), 16 grams of carbohydrates, 3 of which are dietary fiber (12% of the RDA), and 3 grams of protein. In addition, the pita also has 6% DV calcium and 2% DV iron.
A bag of 6 pockets sells for $2.49 at Kroger. Though the taste of the pockets is not particularly distinct on their own, they provide an excellent foundation for a sandwich. The pita pockets have quite a bit of fiber and fewer calories than I had expected from the size of the pockets, which are both pluses to me. These pita pockets are not as economical as a loaf of bread, but they are good for mixing things up a bit.
