Here is some of what Heather had to say about our Sandwich Petals:

“One thing that we have really missed after going gluten free was good [flatbread]. Then, we experienced Sandwich Petals.  These petal-shaped (flat-breads) are delicious.  Not only are they delicious, but they are also healthy.  They contain no gluten, no dairy, no nuts, no eggs, no wheat, no shellfish, and no soy.”

“These hearty [Petals] are made from multiple gluten free whole grains, and pair well with both light and heavy ingredients.  Sandwich Petals are shelf stable for 30 days.  Just pop them in the microwave for 25-30 seconds to have a nice, flexible [Petal]that does not break when you roll it.”

Here is some of what Tiffany had to say about the Sandwich Petals:

“Gluten-free Sandwich Petals (aka flatbreads) from Raquelita’s are one of the most exciting things to hit the gluten-free market in a while.”

“One of the most remarkable things about these wraps (as I call them) is that they are shelf stable for a month. No freezing or refrigeration required! This actually sounded too good to be true to me, so I tested the claim.”

” The result was that the wraps were as good this week as they were four weeks ago. It’s quite shocking to think something this good, that is also good for you and only has 90 calories can sit out on the counter or in the pantry for so long and not go stale.”

“One of the most fun uses for the wrap is making pizzas with them. Seriously, the pizza was fabulous, even though the crust was anything but conventional.”

Here is some of what Gwinnett Gluten-Free Food Examiner had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

“The petals are the perfect portion size (kind of shaped like a football) and come in three flavors: Spinach Garlic, Chimayo Red Chile and Agave Grain.”

 “The most interesting thing to me is that the petals are shelf stable at room temperature for 30 days without refrigeration.  That’s right, you can store them on the kitchen counter until ready to use.” 

” The petals need to be heating in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then rest for 30 seconds and become incredible flexible. They hold together better than a corn tortilla and have a better taste and texture.”

“You can really taste the blend of spices in each petal, but they don’t overpower whatever you fill them with.”

“One sandwich petal really does fill you up because they are slow digesting, so they curve your appetite for hours and promote increased absorption of nutrients. ”

“This is one gluten-free product that this Examiner will always keep on hand.  Now I have a go-to bread product for travel and at home that the whole family will enjoy.”

Here is some of what Gluten Free Durham had to say:

“Since going gluten free I rarely eat sandwiches. The bread is often so dense and high in calories and carbohydrates that I opt to skip the bread. Well, the Sandwich Petal may be my answer to a palatable wrap like sandwich.”

“The wraps are also free of dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut shell fish, and soy.”

“Products are lab tested by the American Institute of Baking to be Gluten Free testing at less than 20 PPM. ”

“The wraps are a nice size and after warming for 30 seconds in the microwave roll nicely without breaking! The product can be stored at room temperature for 30 days, so no fuss with needing to defrost something before preparing your meal.”

Here is some of what The Whole Kitchen had to say about the Sandwich Petals:

“The adorably-named Sandwich Petals are one of the few gluten-free products that I truly love, and now want to have in my pantry at all times.”

“The Sandwich Petal – These pretty, football shaped tortillas are made by Raquelita’s in Denver, Colorado (and I just might stop in next time we’re visiting my brother out there). They’re only 90 calories each (as compared to some other GF tortillas at 180 cal/each), and they are pretty good for you, too. Nutrition is all well and good, but you know me – I’m all about GOOD food – and these hit the mark.”

“You can do anything with these tortillas. And for a gluten-free product, they’re pretty darned economical at $25 for a case of 36 tortillas (and that includes shipping). Order some today!”

Here is some of what Dr. Wangen had to say about the Sandwich Petals:

“I was impressed with the names because when I tasted each one they really did have a noticeably unique and flavorful taste. This was obviously far more than just marketing.”

“Another part of their success is reflected in the quality of the [flatbread] itself. If you follow the directions and heat it up for 30 seconds, you really do get a nice rollable tortilla that holds together much better than a corn tortilla. It also has a nice texture and a thickness that you just can’t get in a corn tortilla.”

“I really do like these [Sandwich Petals] and I’m looking forward to eating them again tomorrow as I continue through the leftovers.”

Here is some of what Tiffany said about the Sandwich Petals:

“The awesome Sandwich Petals are made with ten nutritious grains and they are free of dairy, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, soy and gluten. There is a tiny bit of fish from tuna oil for the omega 3. The grains include buckwheat, sorghum, millet, quinoa (a super food!), teff, amaranth, sesame, tapioca, corn and flax. Each petal contains 3 grams of fiber or 12% of the RDA. The flatbreads are a low glycemic food, helping to maintain proper blood sugar levels.”

“The number of things that these great Sandwich Petal’s can be used for is almost limitless.”

“Well, I’ve got to say that [the Spinach Garlic Pesto] was my absolute favorite wrap of the three. The flavors in the Spinach Garlic Pesto Sandwich Petals are just perfect together!”

Here is some of what Chad had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

“I was very excited to try these sandwich petals, because, corn tortillas simply aren’t the best substitute for a sandwich wrap! It had probably been a good 20 years since I have eaten a wrap, so you can imagine my joy when I opened up the package.”

“When I first opened up the package, my first instinct was to bend them around, to see just how pliable they really are! After all, gluten-free tortillas, especially larger tortillas, are known for falling apart easily! However, I was surprised that the Sandwich Petals were able to hold up very well.”

“I would definitely recommend that you heat up the sandwich petal prior to using it, as it makes the petal much more flexible and easy to use. The Garlic Pesto was an excellent replacement for the traditional sandwich wrap and you can actually taste the spinach, garlic and basil flavors, but they are not overpowering. It felt great to actually eat a wrap again!”

“The [Chimayo Red Chile] Sandwich Petal held up great and the burrito didn’t fall apart in my hands! The flavor was great and not really spicy at all, so don’t worry if you aren’t a big fan of spice.”

“Oh, and the best part about these sandwich petals is that they are shelf stable for 30 days without refrigeration!”

Here is some of what Chrissy at Spectrum Hope had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

“I was a little nervous about reviewing a prepackaged gluten-free product because they tend to be ‘dissapointing’ at best. However, I was pleasantly surprised by these flatbreads. The taste and texture are outstanding and they are very versatile. ”

” I tried all three and loved them all. My husband is no fan of gluten-free bread and he enjoyed them too. Even my 3 year old devoured these flatbreads!

” I found them to be very filling and since they are super slow digesting, I stayed full for hours. Even if you’re not gluten free, you might consider Sandwich Petals as a healthier alternative to regular bread.”

“I don’t know how they managed to make these flatbreads so flexible and tasty.”
