July 15, 2008Reviewer: Colleen in Arkansas* This is a great alternative to chips/crackers. It fulfills my craving for something to eat with dips or spreads. It certainly is not like the real deal, but it's close and it's low-carb, which you can't get better than that!!This review is specific to Carb Counters Texas Toasters, Good n' Plain
June 28, 2008Reviewer: Garry in Michigan* Tasty and crunchy. Pizza flavor was reasonably OK to satisfy the crunchy craving. Will try the onion & dill flavor next.This review is specific to Carb Counters Texas Toasters, Pizza
3 of 3 people found the following review helpfulJanuary 07, 2008Reviewer: Leslie in Illinois* Dixie Diner has released a number of different products which fit into the category which includes chips, crackers, flatbreads, etc. One thing they all seem to have in common is their texture/consistency. I predict that for most of them, if you dislike them this will be the primary reason. The problem is they are tough when you bite into them and as you chew them they essentially crumble slowly into a dry powder in your mouth. This is an odd sensation and for many, I suspect, it will put them off. I do not have a major problem with it, however, so at most I am only going to dock the product one star for the strange nature of the texture. Of the Dixie Diners products which fit into this description, the Texas Toasters are probably the least objectionable from a texture standpoint -- the reason being that they appear to have had some type of mild leavening, like baking powder, added to batter so they are not as tough as say, the ovenbaked "pita" chips. The flavor of the plain is pretty plain so some kind of dip, cheese, etc. seems pretty much essential. The pizza variety I found slightly appealing on their own but they worked out well for me by creating something on the order of pizza nachos by covering them with pizza sauce, cheese, and other pizza style toppings then heating them in the microwave until the cheese melted.
