Review: Tasty Bite Products

Believe it or not, I have not had a lot of experience with Indian food in my 37 years. I think I was always scared that I wouldn’t like it and prior to starting the gluten-free diet, I wasn’t very adventurous in trying new foods. I knew what I liked & stuck with those foods. In September I received some samples of Tasty Bite products that I have been working through over the past month or so. At first I was a little leary, but I quickly brushed that feeling away and decided to keep an open mind. Boy, am I glad that I did!! I have to tell you that I was a complete moron for not sampling Indian food before.

When glancing at the Tasty Bite gluten-free product list, I was amazed! There are so many different dishes, sauces & rices to choose from. As you can see, I was sent a nice variety of products to sample.

The rices were nice because they take only 90 seconds in the microwave to cook. This has been very helpful with our hectic schedule lately. I love chickpeas and the Chunky Chickpeas did not disappoint. I did add some roasted vegetables to the bowl to help bulk it up.

The Madras Lentils were not only great over the basmati rice, but in a corn tortilla as a taco, too! I love the convenience of these items without all of the added crap that some convenience products have in them.

The Bombay Potatoes make a wonderful side dish for chicken or fish. I love the texture combination of the chickpeas & potatoes. Unique and not something I would have considered putting together before trying this dish.

The Jaipur Vegetables were a nice treat! I loved the raisins in this dish. I had this over rice with a salad on the side. Then I decided that I would add the leftovers to my salad the next day and that was equally delicious.

I still have to try the Good Korma Simmer Sauce, Mushroom Takatak, and Punjab Eggplant. I think I will be consulting the recipes page for some inspiration with the last three items. Just looking over that page made my stomach growl!

What I really, really like about these products is the simple ingredient lists, as I touched on above. There are no chemicals, preservatives, or words that you can’t pronounce on the packages. I can’t stress how much I love this. Tasty Bite was launched in 1995 and offers 39 different products, most of them being gluten-free. Each product is clearly labeled if it is gluten-free. Tasty Bite products can be found in stores across the US or ordered online here. There is free shipping on all orders over $65.00. Make sure to check out Tasty Bite on Facebook and Twitter for all of the latest news & product info.

    So funny. I just picked up some of these at Meijer yesterday (on sale). I have yet to try them, but they are on the menu within the next week.

    Indian Food rocks too.

  • I absolutely love Tasty Bite products. My favorites are the Madras Lentils and the Bombay Potatoes. I haven't tried all that are gluten free, but they are great for a quick meal. I take them to work with me for a convenient lunch.

    We also add veggies, or sometimes meat, to the mix and make a dinner out of them when we are in a rush. I love that they don't have a bunch of crap (modified starches, etc.) in them. YUM!

    Jen – Thanks for letting me know Meijer has these on sale again. That's when I got a couple and tried them the first time. April – We also liked that they don't have a bunch of crap in them.

    Kim, you have to go out for Indian food now that you know you like it! Tasty Bite is good, but *real* Indian food is so, so yummy!

  • I have been searching for reliable suggestions on natural health and think that your site is a good source of information. It is hard to find savvy recommendations on the Internet, but I think I can use this information! If you know of any more reliable ideas, please let me know. Thanks a million!

  • How have I never seen these at the store before?!?! The chunky chickpeas sound sooo good!

  • Kim

    Kim – I will!! :)

    Val – You would love these!

  • I can find the Madras Lentils here at our Costco. They are great for keeping in your desk drawer since they are shelf stable for an emergency lunch or dinner – as long as you have access to a bowl and microwave…

    I agree, Kim, you need to go try an Indian restaurant. Wonderful, amazing food. There was one near campus that I used to like but I don't think it is there any longer. I am sure there are some good ones around town. Ask around…

    Renee – I think I will. I know my dad has been to several around town that he likes, so perhaps I will ask him!
