Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts - Review

Tiger Nuts.  That's right, I said "Tiger. Nuts." Before this review gets started, let's just all agree that the inner middle-schooler in all of us, thinks that this might be the most hilarious and awesome name for a health food.  Go ahead and giggle, I won't tell, you can maintain your sophisticated facade and no one will ever know that you laughed at "Tiger Nuts." Okay, ready? Now, on to the review!

I received a free sample package of Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts at the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference. I brought them home so everyone in the family could try some. 

Pros: The name. Great name. They are also not actually nuts. They are tubers. (Potatoes are tubers too!) I love that Tiger Nuts are free from all Top 8 Allergens, gluten free, and loaded with fiber.  They help suppress appetite and have generous amounts of potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and more.  When I added them to our Nut-free Trail Mix (Click HERE for recipe), everyone thought they were good. 

Cons: If you eat them alone, it feels like you're eating cardboard.  I tried to eat a few by themselves to gauge the taste and mouthfeel, and I just kept chewing and chewing.  There is no doubt at how loaded with fiber these little Tiger Nuts are.  None of the children, nor my husband and I enjoyed eating the Tiger Nuts alone. The taste is mildly sweet, but the overwhelming sensation when eating these alone is not pleasant. 

The Bottom Line:  I will continue to purchase Tiger Nuts to use in our homemade Trail Mix, and all of my household will enjoy them, but none us will eat them as a stand-alone snack.
