Been wanting to try thin buns for awhile, but the Arnold's brand I hear a lot about doesn't seem to be available around here. A coupla weeks ago I found these Earthgrain ones which are about equal to Arnolds in calories & carbs, and I'm on my second package now. Have been a'feared :)D) of testing until today, when I had TWO sandwiches with them, and realized if I'm going to overdo it, I need to be responsible for what I'm doing! :eek: So after two sausage sandwiches on these multi-grain thin buns, I was 138! Oh happy day! I think when I get my fastings back where they belong, these won't spike me over about 110.

Then I made my everlovin' a couple more sandwiches with 'em (ham/cheese/lettuce/tomato), and he's gone head-over-heels for these buns! Sez the flavor beats a regular hamburger bun six ways from Sunday!

OH MY GOSH-SHANNY HAS LOST IT! :D What happened to the low carb tacos or whatever they are called? I got a kick out of this post! I am really glad that you have found something else to eat that doesn't spike your blood glucose! :whoo:

This is mildly disconcerting . . .

Wouldn't you know - as soon as I found Earthgrains, I also found Arnolds! Couldn't find Earthgrains at Walmart yesterday, but Arnolds was there and I bought them without batting an eye.

This morning I started comparing the two thin buns and here's the disconcerting part . . . the ingredient lists: :eek: (maybe I better stick with my BLT wrap, eh?!)

Earthgrains:
Whole wheat flour, water, sugar, wheat gluten, oat fiber, yeast, soybean oil, cultured wheat flour, salt, distilled vinegar, guar gum, enzymes, enzyme-modified soy lecithin, Raisin juice concentrate, Wheat bran, Milk, Soy flour, Sesame seeds.

Arnolds:
Whole wheat flour, unbleached enriched wheat flour [flour, malted barley flour, reduced iron, niacin, thiamin mononitrate (vitmin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid], water, cellulose fiber, wheat gluten, yeast, sugar, cracked wheat, rye, polydextrose, salt, ground corn, canola and/or soybean oil, preservatives (calcium propionate, sorbic acid), grain vinegar, guar gum, cultured wheat flour, brown rice, oats, monoglycerides, soybeans, triticale, barley, flaxseed, millet, citric acid, sodium stearoyl lactylate, sucralose, soy lecithin.

How many carbs in each brand? Are the wraps around 9 carbs each? Does Earthgrains or Arnolds spike your blood glucose? There is one good thing about the bread thins, they don't contain any HFCS. Maybe you could keep some of the bread thins in the freezer and have them once or twice a week? If you are happy with the wraps and they are kind to your blood glucose, then keep them on hand. I know how happy you were to find another bread choice. :)

The calories/carbs content is the same - 100 calories per bun and 17g net carbs.

My wonderful Olé wraps have a carb-deficit! They list 5g of carbs and 12g of fiber! :D So I can't really compare the buns with the wraps - it's no contest.

I can see why you like the Ole' wraps so well. I wasn't aware that they were so low in carbs.
