* This mix is not very good. After reading all the reviews I was shocked at how bad it tasted. The pancakes look amazing. They cook up golden brown and smell promising but the taste is not as good as the looks. I was surprised that 1/4 cup of mix called for 2 eggs. That seems like a lot and I could really taste the egg. I am not that into pancakes, I actually decided to buy the mix so my boyfriend and I could have the same breakfast for a change. He said he would never eat them again. If you are really craving pancakes then give them a try. If you are only thinking about buying this to try something new, it isn't good. Don't waste your money.
* I wanted to like these. I really did. I've been searching for a good low-carb pancake for what feels like forever now. Sadly, this is not what I've been looking for. Maybe my hopes were too high. I was hoping for a Hungry Jack mix type REAL pancake, but this isn't very much like a real pancake whatsoever. It is mealy to me. I am not a fan of the texture. The taste isn't ideal to me, either. I don't know what I'd call these, but they aren't pancakes ... at least not what I think of when I think of pancakes.
* I spent long enough on the low carb train to appreciate a good low-carb product. This is NOT one of them. The texture is denser and drier than normal pancake mix. Adding more water still did not mimic normal pancakes. Worse than the texture was the flavor, or lack there of. This mix tasted like cardboard. Even adding fruit, nuts, syrup, etc... they still tasted like nothing and did not satisfy any kind of pancake craving. Skip this one
* spongy texture, dry taste, not fluffy. looks like crepes and with the eggs tastes like a dry French toast. I added the polander sugar free jam in place of syrup and a teaspoon of whipped cream, not terrible but not something I would look forward to eating either. ill keep looking.
* A disappointing product. I have been using a Carbquick recipe from one of the forums for pancakes and they're wonderful. I gave this a try today and it doesn't even come close. First is the carb count (12 carbs/6 fiber) which is much higher than the CarbQuick recipe (add 1 or 2 more for the two eggs).
Second is the taste. People often complain that Low-Carb products taste spongy and that's the case here spongy with an off taste. The pancakes are not a rich tasting as the Carbquick recipe either. All in all, a failure.
I can't recommend this and will throw away the remainder.
* As a Pancake addict, this product did not satisfy me at all because it is nowhere close to the real pancakes. The pancakes that comes from it are very then with no taste at all. I can assure that you will have a better Pancake alternative by mixing only Vanilla Whey Protein and Eggs. that is even much lower in carb than this product
