Whew. It has been an incredibly busy, incredibly chaotic, exhausting (insert various synonyms here) November as you can probably tell by my lack of posts. I mean, of all the times of the year for me to go off the radar, right? I hope your Thanksgiving was amazing. Mine certainly was – the most normal, drama-free Thanksgiving I have had in several years.
A week or so before Thanksgiving the folks at Loeb’s sent me a couple of packages of their Onion Crunch product. It is all natural, no trans-fats, and made from 100% real onions – in fact the ingredient list is quite small:
Onion, Palm Oil, Wheat Flour, Salt
In the interest of honesty the other brand of crunchy onions has basically the same ingredients list except they also have soy flour – which I am not a fan of. Keep in mind that ingredients are listed in order of highest percentage:
Palm Oil, Wheat Flour, Onions, Soy Flour, Salt and Dextrose
I used the onions on my version of green bean casserole and the result was delicious with just a bit more onion flavor than usual. They stayed crisp throughout the meal – and really, there is nothing worse than a soggy fried onion, am I right?
Of course I am.
The site says they are available at Costco as well as a variety of other stores across the country. I have never seen them at our Costco but I wasn’t really looking either.
Check it out. Give them a try – I think they do taste more like onion and less like fried batter than the other ones.
Disclaimer – Loeb’s sent me 2 packages of the onion crunch to review at no cost to myself. No money changed hands, and none of my children was held hostage in order to get me to write a favorable review. The opinions herein are purely my own – and the voices in my head.
