We recently tried Orowheat 100% Whole Wheat Sandwhich Thins. You've got to try these. I have to say that I give them a giant thumbs up.

They are like a very thin hamburger bun. They have only 100 calories and 21 grams of carbs in one serving (both top and bottom bun). We've tried them for hamburgers, sandwiches, and toast. They have passed every use with flying colors. The kids even commented that they are pretty good.

They're substantial enough that they don't fall apart. And the low carbs just makes it that much easier to manage blood sugars.

We found them at our regular grocery store and at Costco.

Has anyone else tried them?

I, personally am a bread fanatic and have given up eating it for the most part. If I can find them, I am definitely going to give them a try! Thanks so much for your information. Which "local" grocery store did you find them in? I don't believe I have a costco around me.

they are scrumptious! And this same bread variety is being made by a few different companies now - obviously getting very popular! Can find at almost any grocery store - enjoy!

Thanks for the info…I am having so much trouble with BS going to low…at this time…

I like Aunt Hattie's whose low carb breads have 9 gm per slice. Also, the Thomas' English Muffins has a lower carb choice, but I don't remember what the carb count in. Might be a wheat one…good for burgers.

I will have to try this. Always looking for great tasting things like that. I normally eat Nature's Own or Arnold Dutch Country wheat. Will have to go to Costco!

Their Whole Wheat Sandwich Roll is very good also and packs 6 grams of fiber in only 31 grams of carbs. If the Sandwich Thins are too thin, no pun intended, then these might be a good choice,

Hey John were they in your Deli section? or were they in the Bread Isle…I think i'm going to look for these! Thx for the tip!

I found them with the hamburger buns in the bread aisle at the grocery store. But my wife found them at Costco and I'm not sure where she found them.

Deb-G 2009-12-30 16:02:28 -0600 Report

Great..I have a Costco membership also…I'm going to look for them…I love options for bread especially…I am temporarily on an extremely restricted carb diet and its not easy! lol

I am new diabetic. I know nothing about this at all, They put me on gluophase the generic. Take one pill a day was supposed to go to a class this a. m. but got hit with a huge snow storm. Why is rice bad for you?

White rice in particular is a refined grain that contains a lot of carbohydrates. All carbs will raise your blood sugar. And when a food is like rice it doesn't take much to cause your blood sugar to spike.

Nuni 2010-01-06 10:57:55 -0600 Report

Dear Irish
A good rule of thumb is not to eat anything white - you can't go wrong doing this to start. It is really tough in the beginning to figure out what to eat and what not to eat but you will. It gets a little crazy sometimes and is a constant battle, but you will find your way. And, you will feel SO much better when you start to eat differently - it is amazing! Best of luck

I've got my whole family hooked on them. I think the're great for a low carb alternative.

smokingrunes 2009-12-24 23:32:14 -0600 Report

I found them at Costco. Tried them and loved them. I buy them all of they time. I freeze them, take out a frozen one and pop it in the toaster to thaw. then split it and put it back to heat. A slice of cheese and lean meat slice. Good.

"Natures Own" sugar Free bread works for me. 11 carbs per slice

deecee61 2009-12-19 12:12:33 -0600 Report

We use Nature's Own bread products. No High Fructose Corn Syrup, etc. Available in white, wheat, etc. - high fiber; carb count for the white is about 17 per slice (after subtracting fiber). We have Food Pyramid here and the loaves run around $2.00 - $2.50 each.

Susie624 2009-12-15 17:59:11 -0600 Report

Still havent tried the rounds.Found them by Arnolds, as well as the bread.Th bread has 110 calories and18g.of carbs.Trouble is the rounds dissappeared some where between the store and home, but the bread is good so I would think the rounds will also be.

salmanda 2009-12-16 17:47:07 -0600 Report

Try them Suzie! I don't think you will be disappointed.

I, too, have tried the Arnold's Multi-Grain, and they make delicious and healthy sandwiches - just the right size. Found them at Sam's Club (similar to Costco's) and our local Giant Eagle Supermarket.

salmanda 2009-12-15 17:13:10 -0600 Report

As mcola said Arnold makes these also, and they are delicious! Arnolds makes them in different varieties as well…multi-grain (my favorite), wheat, etc.
I'm hooked! lol
Sal :)

alanbossman 2009-12-15 08:12:28 -0600 Report

These are good ,as Mcola said arnolds makes them also. Another one is Aunt Millies light whole grain bread 35 calories per slice and 9grams of carbs per slice means 2 slices are a total of 18 gm.

I just seen them in the store this weekend. I'm going to try them. I'm a bread person so I will be trying them soon and I keep you posted on what I think.

lipsie 2009-12-14 17:19:48 -0600 Report

Well I am game to try this out. I hope I can find it at our local grocery store though. Just wondering, how much has it ran people for a bundle of this? Sheila

Susie624 2009-12-15 18:04:28 -0600 Report

lipsie,don't remember what I paid for the rounds but, If you could be as lucky asI was the bread is $3.69 a loaf of 16 serving and I found it at Kroger's bogo.so made it $1.85 each.

spiritwalker 2009-12-14 13:33:06 -0600 Report

I have replaced whole wheat rolls with whole wheat sandwich
rounds. they are low calorie , and have a good taste.

MarineMomX2 2009-12-14 13:30:55 -0600 Report

lol, now that it's the only bread I buy my son's have decided it tastes better than the old stuff…oh darn, it's actually better for them too!

ptsparkle 2009-12-14 13:08:20 -0600 Report

My wife discovered these while visiting my sister in Florida. Only place we have found them here in Tucson, is at Costco. They are truly a great product. My oldest daughter who was visiting made me some toast, only she didn;t realize they were so thin, and put the whole piece in the toaster! At least the outsides were toasted!

donna13 2009-12-14 11:35:57 -0600 Report

My daughter found them and I had some there. I agree, they are everything you said about them. I have found that eating high fiber bread was a problem in that one slice for a sandwich didn't seem quite enough, but 2 slices was too much. These seem just right. I buy them all the time, now.
