Costco Shoppers Can't Get Enough Of These Cauliflower Sandwich Thins

Now that gluten free and keto are this generation's Atkins and South Beach, products that cater to low-carb food plans are around every corner. And cauliflower moonlighting as other things is a leading source of fad diet innovation. One of the latest additions is Outer Aisle's Gourmet Cauliflower Thins, now available at Northeast and Pacific Northwest Costcos (via Instagram). Costco fans were excited, but other customers aren't so sure. So we're curious: Will these thins outlast the initial rush?

At the very least, dieters have something new to try. At only 2 grams of carbs per serving, 2.5 grams of fat, and 50 calories, the bread substitute can pack in a serving of veggies (via the Costco Connoisseur). They're made up of only four ingredients: cauliflower, eggs, Parmesan cheese, and nutritional yeast. With such a minimal approach, these little veggie thins seem like a bread substitute that's too good to be true.

What you need to know about these cauliflower thins from Costco

Costco fans don't seem to think so, though. On the Costco Connoisseur's blog, which reviews all things from the wholesale store, these cauliflower thins went over well. According to the site, "Thins have become a staple in our house. I've used them to make everything from burgers and breakfast sandwiches, to tacos and mini pizzas." 

Spoon University said, "Not only are they thick enough to hold the sauce and the cheese, but they have such a similar density to pizza dough that you can barely tell the difference."

Others weren't so sure, however, about this bread alternative product. One commenter on an Outer Aisle Instagram post wrote, "Trader Joe's just came out with their version of cauliflower thin slices and they taste better and are half the cost!" A Youtube reviewer liked the flavor of the thins, but not the texture, which she said was closer to a wet fried egg than bread. 

Keto folks — we'll leave it to you for the final word on this newest addition to Costco's low-carb lineup.
