Cedarlane Couscous & Vegetable Veggie Wrap Review

Cedarlane Couscous and Vegetable Veggie WrapAlthough I'm not a vegetarian, I don't think every meal I eat has to have meat in it - and I love seeing new and interesting foods to try. Therefore, my curiosity was peaked when I saw Cedarlane Couscous & Vegetable Veggie Wrap, which seemed like a ultra-healthy alternative to a burrito. It was available as a frozen wrap in Kroger, where I paid $2.39 for it.

Cedarlane says, "Start with a wheat flour tortilla. Fill it with a generous helping of couscous, non-fat mozzarella, zucchini, olives, onion, tomatoes, bell peppers, green chilis, and just the right seasonings. Wrap it up and you have the delicious Cedarlane Low Fat Couscous & Vegetable Veggie Wraps." The wrap turned out nicely after being heated in the microwave, and it tasted good but was not exactly what I had expected.

The filling consisted of far more couscous than vegetables, which were cut into tiny pieces, and was tied together with a tomato sauce that was good but not particularly remarkable. Overall, it was a pleasant eating experience, but the contents didn't feel hearty enough for a meal by itself.

One Cedarlane Couscous & Vegetable Veggie Wrap provides 220 calories and 3 grams of total fat (5% of the daily value), but no saturated fat or cholesterol. There are 580 milligrams of sodium (24% DV), 36 grams of carbohydrates, including 3 grams of fiber and 2 grams of sugar, in addition to a whopping 14 grams of protein. There are 10% DV vitamin A, 60% DV vitamin C, 20% DV calcium, and 6% DV iron. This wrap does has milk based ingredients (non-fat mozarella cheese).

Though not necessarily a standalone food item, this wrap was quite tasty, and I was impressed by the nutritional value, particularly the low amount of fat. It seems like a pretty good value, and at only 220 calories, I could add a salad to make a more filling lunch (or eat another one).
