I could not have chosen a better time to review this product. We had ended up in Hokitika and thanks to being "in the know" with the locals had been able to purchase half a kilo of freshly caught whitebait for just $30. Not only was this a treat in itself, but whitebait and caramelised onion is a match made in heaven. Add a dozen free-range eggs (also locally produced), a couple of oranges (because we did not have any lemons), and some ready cooked fish pieces as garnish on the side of the plate, and we had the ultimate kiwi dinner!
We had no oven and other proper cooking facilities in the bach were pretty limited, but we managed to get the whitebait and egg mix cooked while the rest of the meal was to be served cold, and by the time we had all finished there was nothing left bar for a few pieces of orange peel. Unfortunately, however, the six of us had eaten the whole packet of wraps so there were none left to try with alternative ingredients. That will have to happen the next time we buy this flavour, but I have to say it is probably the best of all the Farrahs wraps I have tasted so there is no question about whether or not I will be looking for it when I next go shopping.
Before eating my own wrap, I cut a piece from the edge to try it on its own. I had chosen to serve the wraps flat on the plate for this meal rather than rolling them as the orange was meant to be squeezed over the whitebait, and that would not have worked so well in a roll. But that also meant that I was able to taste a little of the wrap unadorned. It was amazing - a really strong flavour of onion which confirmed the initial effect I had noted when I first broke the pack seal and sniffed the contents. It was much more aromatic than any other Farrahs wrap I have tried, and it was that aroma that first made me think of combining it with whitebait and citrus.
I really like wraps when I am on the road. They are so versatile which means you can get healthy ingredients to fill them and have a proper meal ready in a very short time period - with minimal or no cooking, depending on the ingredients chosen for the filling. I tend to go for the Farrahs brand because they don't fall apart, and that is a bonus when you are eating without plates or cutlery as you are less likely to lose half of your dinner in the sand or on a park picnic table where the cleanliness might be in doubt. And if you don't eat the whole packet in one go, the resealable opening keeps them fresh for several days without the need for refrigeration.
To summarise - tasty, practical, look good (especially with the little pieces of onion visible), go perfectly with fish dishes, and inexpensive at around a dollar per wrap. What is not to like?
Wraps. a definite favorite of mine but until now I haven't branched out into different flavours so this was a new one for me. I am a big fan of caramelised onions so was very keen to try this one. The wraps themselves are nice and soft, they roll easily and even when packed with lots of fillings, they don't break apart, either when being rolled or being eaten. The flavour was nice though with the fillings added in, I don't know that I would identify it as caramelised onion specifically but still very nice and a noticeable difference from plain wraps.
We tried these out as a lunch item, filling them with lettuce, tomato, cheese and lunch meats. Very tasty and at this time of year, a nice summery feel to them. Like other Farrah's wraps, it is a little higher on the calorie side than I generally prefer but stuffing them full of salad ingredients balances that out for me. That along with the price being a little high for my budget, means these would be more of an occasional lunch option for me. If buying wraps though, I would be more inclined to pay the extra and go for these over other options.
I'd definitely recommend these to others!
Farrah's wraps have always been a high-quality product. Packaged in groups of six within a resealable packet, a lot of thought has been put into keeping the product as fresh as possible for multiple servings. The clear front facing packaging is also useful as you can properly see the product before purchasing.
Opening the packet, the first thing I noted was there was an obvious aroma coming from within the packet; the sweetness of caramelised onions. It was a noticeable scent, but certainly not overpowering; without caramelised onions being written on the packet I would struggle to pinpoint what the aroma was. But knowing it is onions, a closer sniff does remind me of the smell of a salad with red onions and a balsamic vinaigrette (one of the ingredients used to caramelise onions).
The wraps have the same glossy feel to them that the rest of the range has, and the same soft, easy to roll and fold characteristics that we have come to expect. I used the wraps with a bean mix, combining a four bean mix, with some mushrooms, a tomato and herb base, and a generous helping of chilli. The wraps provided a hint of sweetness to the meal, that would usually have a bland flavourless carb-loaded wrap in its place. It made the wrap a part of the flavour profile, rather than just a method of eating the meal.
The one downside for me is the calorie count. One wrap has around 165 calories, which is over 10% of my recommended calorie intake for the day. A tasty product. But not an everyday food for me.
I don't know what id do without Farrah's Wraps! Since trying them over a year ago through KIWIreviews they have become a staple item each week during grocery shopping, my family absolutely loves the massive array of flavours which they are available in and even more so that unlike other wraps these ones do not rip, split, tear or crack when folded or heated!
I am a huge fan of caramelised onions, I use it to flavour burgers, pizza and of course wraps it is always such a welcome addition for a flavour burst to many meals, so when I saw that Farrah's had developed a Caramelised Onion flavoured wrap I was very excited to try it out! Opening up the package for the very first time I got the most lovely smell of sweet caramelised onion was released, and as I removed my first wrap from the packaging I was even more impressed to see that little pieces of onion and herbs (which i'm thinking are Thyme) straight away I knew that these wraps were going to packed full of flavour... of course I was right, I wouldn't expect anything less from Farrah's!
I decided to first of all cut a couple of the wraps into triangle shaped wedges to create some chips to serve with various dips - hummus, kiwi onion, salsa and caramelised onion to share with a group of friends who were coming for dinner, having baked these in the onion they came lovely and crisp and went great with every variety of dip served. Several of my friends commented that the chips had a sweetness to them, and I had to agree the caramelised onion flavour was certainly there and added a great taste to them, another friend also added that it was nice to be able to actually see the pieces of onion in them as it showed they used a real ingredient rather than a flavouring.
With the 3 remaining wraps these made the perfect dinner for my partner, myself and Miss 4 we all loved them. To serve I decided to try something a little different than usual and folded the wraps into quarters so that they had 3 little pockets, in each of the pockets we each put in our favourite fillings, for mine I had pineapple rings, streaky bacon, grated cheese, avocado, lettuce and crumbed chicken tenders with mayonnaise and tomato relish, the flavour combination inside the wrap was amazing and even with the wrap being so packed full of various flavours I could still pick up on the sweetness of the wrap.
As far as Farrah's wraps go these have to be right up there as one of my favourite flavours alongside the garlic butter wraps. Farrah's wraps are amazing and I love the versatility that this product provides no matter which way you choose to use the wraps they taste fantastic and give stunning results every time, I can't wait to see what Farrah's brings out next for me to try! These wraps be more costly than others on the market but in my opinion they are worth every cent.
