507602507602B001EO6AVYA2NE4IBSVEQ4LO111411141121330992000Coffee grinding percolator snobOrdered this coffee on amazon, but was sent from a seller in kentucky. Coffee had no roast date on it. By trying to save a few bucks I got non freshly roasted coffee. Just placed a direct order with Camano Island Coffee Roasters. Coffee will probably be roasted tomorrow, just before shipment. You cannot buy more freshly roasted beans. Let me tell you, you really can tell the difference in taste of beans roasted this week instead of months ago. I am a Camano Island Coffee Roasters club member. $48.90 For two 2 pound bags with free shipping. Being a CICR coffee club member allows you to buy two 2 pound bags with free shipping at any time. Your picks of their various coffees.
507603507603B001EO6AVYA33BMBIWJMMDDPVegas Slim3411231113600be carefullI reviewed this coffee, but amazon changed the product listing. The buyer needs to know that the coffee is not in a sealed, air-tight bag. Therefore what might have been good beans at one time are ruined by the time they arrive.
507604507604B001EO6AVYA17NC07HSUJEWSSteven A. Epstein0051287964800Fruit-forward Ethiopian CoffeeI enjoy a good cup of Ethiopian coffee and was excited to taste this brew. My preferred method is a press-pot (AKA French press) so I can taste every nuance of the coffee. The richness was outstanding, with a great full mouth feel and a fruit (berry) forward finish, especially as the coffee cooled. You will not be disappointed. Camano Island Coffee Roasters corrected any previous packaging problems.

507607507607B002M5GYYMA397CWU6DM3O5Gganka1141273104000not the real black currant, but still tastyThe chocolates consist of little raisins covered with bittersweet chocolate. The chocolate is very good, and raisins do add a little more sweetness, so overall, it is very nice.
Please, make note that those are not real black currants covered with chocolate as Ribus nigrum, small tart European berry, but little raisins, that are also sometimes called black currants for some reason. I would greatly prefer to have the real black currants covered in chocolate, but those are still good, so they get 4 stars for that.
507608507608B0013JQOIYA2D1LPEUCTNT8XAli Julia3351331856000My "secret" ingredient!Bobs Red Mill Wheat Germ is high quality product (like many other things from Bobs Red mill!) Wheat germ is the flaky center of wheat kernels. It adds slightly earthy flavor. Wheat germ has a very light flavor, it is easy to mix into thing and not even notice it is there. It just adds goodness and fiber. Wheat germ is packed with 23 nutrients, including many essential minerals and more antiaging tocopherols (a type of E vitamin) than any other plant. Two tablespoons supply about 12 percent of your daily value of folate, the B vitamin believed to protect against colon cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, and dementia.

I have many uses for what germ from sprinkling it on my morning cereal to using in baking.

My most fun use of it in my famous chicken salad. I use wheat germ as my "secret" ingredient in a chicken salad dressing: 1 Tbsp. wheat germ, 1 Tbsp. curry powder, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. mustard powder, and 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt. If often bring this dish to a "pot luck" outings, and people really enjoy it. For fun I mention I use a secret ingredient but often don't disclose it :-)

Wheat germ is easy to spill from the plastic bag it arrives in, so when I am ready to use a new bag I pour the content of the bag into a plastic container designed for cereal, this allows me to pour the kernels out of the container's spout without spilling the them on the counter. To make it easier to move the content of the bag into the container, I cut a small hole in the bag and use a funnel to direct the content into the container.

In case you find it useful here is a taste comparison of other seeds I use in my diet.

FLAXSEEDS
Nutty-flavored seeds that provide the most nutrition when ground.

HEMP SEEDS
Similar in taste to sunflower seeds and pine nuts.

BUCKWHEAT GROATS
Soft seeds with a sweet, earthy flavor when toasted.

WHEAT GERM
The flaky center of wheat kernels. Very light earthy flavor.

Chavin "rmchavin"1151345075200Tastes substantially better than Bob's Red Mill Wheat BranBob's Red Mill Wheat Germ, which is delicious, tastes substantially better than Bob's Red Mill Wheat Bran, which has only an acceptable taste. Wheat germ is richer in vitamins, minerals, and short-chain omega-3 fatty acids than wheat bran. However, wheat bran is richer in insoluble fiber and also in cancer-preventing antioxidants such as p-coumaric acid. Also, wheat bran has only about half of the calories of an equal amount of wheat germ. The human body is usually able to convert only about 5% of the short-chain omega-3 fatty acids in our food into phospholipid-based long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which is what the human body really needs. Soluble fiber, which is plentiful in psyllium husk capsules, works extremely well for preventing and treating constipation. Insoluble fiber, which is plentiful in wheat bran, flaxseeds, and vegetables, is only slightly helpful against constipation. Both soluble and insoluble fiber contain cancer-preventing antioxidants (please click "Comment" below).

507614507614B000EMRHT6A1HOLE9R6WPT85Mad Max7731262995200I think they taste great - neat idea for a spicy snack - but the product does have problemsI love the Just Cheese bars. It's basically just crisped cheese, some of which have powdered flavoring mixed in. This one is jalepeno, which is my favorite. In fact it's the only flavor my wife & I can agree on (I also really like the Pizza flavor, but my wife hates them). Just goes to show you how different individual tastes vary.

But I do have mixed feelings about Just the Cheese - it's a genius idea. A convenient, single-serving bar of crispy cheese, to throw in your bag or glove box for a low carb snack. But 3 problems:

(1) Too much sodium. I have to guzzle a glass of water after eating a bar. And these are only 1/2 ounce!

(2) Taste isn't always consistent. Sometimes you get a burned piece.

(2) The price (over $1 per bar) is really too high for 1/2 ounce of cheese. The Atkins & South Beach bars are much cheaper - usually 2.7-3.5 ounces (nearly 5-7 times more) for about the same price. I do not think this product should cost SIX TIMES what an Atkins bar costs.

These bars get a 3.5 stars for me. If the company would fix these problems, I'd give it a 5.

PS - If you like the idea of zero carb cheese snacks, you can easily make these yourself at home in just a few minutes:

Put a little oil (or Pam) on aluminum foil, sprinkle on some shredded hard cheese from the bag (Parmesan is the easiest and most widely available), and bake it in an oven for 5-10 minutes until it turns golden brown. A great serving size is 20-30 half-dollar sized parmesan bites/crisps, on a normal sized baking pan. A toaster oven or convection oven is best - it makes fewer servings, but will crisp faster (3-4 minutes on 400-450). And the great thing is, if you're a low carber who misses chips & dip, your homemade cheese crisps are easily dip-able in salsa, sour cream, etc.
507615507615B000EMRHT6A3OJODCRBTTF51D. Spaulding7721171324800Tastes burnt!This cheese is baked until crunchy and is a low carb, low calorie snack. It tastes burnt and is extremely crunchy, like tooth breaking crunchy. I will not buy it again.
507616507616B000EMRHT6A1LNRH16MJMFM8William Creech6741236211200I Thought they were yummyI saw two bad reviews, and just wanted to let people know that I liked them and have ordered a second box of them. Tasty alternative to chips.
507617507617B000EMRHT6A4XB95O211M0XM R CAT2231159315200Edible...that's about it.Bars are evidently healthly...containing a decent amount of protein and calcium. However, the taste leaves something to be desired. They do not taste good; yet, they are palatable.
507618507618B000EMRHT6AG2YXYIQ8TLTACandy Beauchamp "CandysRaves"1121311292800Eh, a little too weird for meI really do like the little bags of snacks from this company, but the bars are too weird. They are basically the same, but shaped like a bar. But it's not the same as popping a disc into your mouth and snacking on it like a chip or something. I'm not really sure what this one was trying to emulate. Maybe a granola bar?

I dunno, the taste was similar to me, but it was... weird.

They are also (like the snack bite things) very salty).

I'd stick to things like the Just the Cheese Mini Round Snacks, Classic White Cheddar, 0.5-Ounce Bags (Pack of 16) if you want a crunch - or look for their lower salt versions if you are watching sodium.
507619507619B000EMRHT6A3F3E9HUO1W4J2John Longo1121309824000Salty & too much sat fatDidn't like it, BUT, if the manufacturer is listening, it could be saved. Go with low fat/low sodium cheese, make the bar slightly bigger and you might even market it as a health food to the vegetarian market. As is, the best use would be to dump it in a soup for taste.
507620507620B000EMRHT6A2DDQLQGSPX318Kitowa "scifi nut"1111308441600Inedible.. even Mikey didn't like them!Before you read this, I highly recommend Just the Cheese's mini rounds in the same flavor. I DO NOT recommend these bars. If I could have given them zero stars, I would have.

I thought these would be great.. I love Jalapeno, and I love cheese.. what could go wrong? These bars could and did! They are extremely hard to bite into. I worried about cracking my teeth on them. They taste like jalapeno flavored salt blocks.

I gave them to a friend of mine who eats anything and everything (Mikey Jr!). He didn't like these either. He's going to try breaking them up (I assume with a hammer) and put them in his next batch of chili. I wish him good luck. I suggested that he use them for repelling pests in his garden.

I wrote the company, and they sent me some samples of the mini rounds. I was skeptical, but they are GREAT! I'll order those next time.. they are not too salty, just the right amount of crunch, and taste great. They have 5 or 6 flavors and I like them all.
507621507621B000EMRHT6A2NT6NTYCJ17WPj-lsu1141304035200Low carb treatIf you're low-carbing, this is a really nice little snack bar. They are very salty and won't necessarily fit everyone's taste, but I thought they were quite good. The texture is like a hard granola bar.

Overall, I did quite well on my low carb diet and I recommend these. I gave four stars, rather than five, because of the saltiness.
507622507622B000EMRHT6A3ACKG66LIMWXULperes1111293408000Taste levelCould not eat this product, the taste was horrible.
Decided to give to a few friends also on Atkins diet and they could not eat it at all, it taste that bad.
Sorry but the truth.
Thanks

507623507623B000EMRHT6A6L4TRWZU8XHFCrusader1111283644800Total garbage poor excuse for a snack!
507624507624B000EMRHT6A35WJ1F6MPDVWNKathleen M. Duane0011340236800Disgusting!Salty, too hard to bite, and tastes like chewing on a salt lick. With so much sodium, this is totally a terrible choice. Do not buy!

507627507627B000EMRHT6ABME14W9VXC8Gjeffrey d makepeace0011302912000Really awful!I don't often write reviews but I had to warn other low-carb dieters about how awful these snacks are. Very salty and frankly inedible. I was very disappointed to learn that Amazon will not let me return the product....very expensive dog treats if the dogs will even eat them.
507628507628B000EMRHT6A1HOLE9R6WPT85Mad Max0031262995200I love the company, and like the product - but a few problemsI love the Just Cheese bars. It's basically just crisped cheese, some of which have powdered flavoring mixed in. This one is white cheddar pizza flavored, which I also liked.

And the great thing is, if you're a low carber who misses chips & dip, your homemade cheese crisps are easily dip-able in salsa, sour cream, etc.

If you want to replicate the "Just the Cheese" flavor, take the package of powdered cheese from a box of "white cheese" flavored mac & cheese, and sprinkle it in. Therein lies the problem for me - wayyyy too much sodium. Cheese already has a lot of sodium. But add flavoring, and it can get overwhelming fast. After just one Just the Cheese bar, I have to guzzle a glass of water.

So I have mixed feelings - I think this product is a genius idea. A convenient, single-serving bar of crispy cheese, to throw in your bag or glove box for a low carb snack. But I grade it down for 3 reasons:

(1) Too much sodium. However, some of the other "plain" flavors have a bit less sodium.

(2) Taste isn't always consistent. Sometimes you get a burned piece.

(2) The price (over $1 per bar) is really too high for 1/2 ounce of cheese. The Atkins & South Beach bars are much cheaper - usually 2.7-3.5 ounces (nearly 5-7 times more) for about the same price. I do not think this product should cost SIX TIMES what an Atkins bar costs.

3.5 stars for me. If the company would fix these problems, I'd give it a 5.

507630507630B000EMRHT6A1BH7A16L9HGOLJason Antebi "Jason Rantz"0041247184000Delicious snackThese are easily one of my favorite low-carb and low-calorie snacks when I'm doing the whole "no carb" deal. They are dry -- but I like them that way. They are filling and they taste good. They're not for everyone so before you buy one box of each flavor, try the bars (they're pretty dry) or the chips (less dry) and see how you like them.
