    These are the Julian Bakery ones : Paleo Wraps – Special Bulk Pack 49 Individual Wraps

    ets: I just looked up the pure Wraps and they are still not available.

    Hopefully the two companies can work it out and maybe bring the price down a bit.

      I do love the Pure Wraps. Had one today for lunch, in fact. I can't give an honest comparison to any others as of yet, since I haven't tasted any. I have the wraps from Julian, and when I finish off this package of Pure Wraps, I'll be going to those. I'll come back and let you know what I think of them then.

      I'm really sorry to hear we can't get the Pure Wraps anywhere now. I hope they iron it out so they become available again. I was so disgusted with Julian's (bread) product and service I wouldn't order from them again if I had a reasonable alternative.

        Just a quick update... I checked the Pure Wraps website to see if there might be ANY other purveyors out there where I could get some "old stock" of their wraps. I left them a short comment that I was more or less disgusted with the service I'd received from Julian. I got an email response from them today (Improv'Eat - distributor of Pure Wraps) first of all wanting to know how they could avoid any similar dissatisfaction (meaning, what did Julian do...) and then they offered a bit of unexpected info on the patent dispute.

        It seems the USDA is holding that patent! or, that's how it sounded to me.

        Well. Here's what I got from them:

        We appreciate your kind words and we have been frustrated as well. The USDA owning patents was news to us as well!
        May we ask what you did not like about ordering from Julian Bakery? Customer feedback and what they like and don't like always helps us to better serve.
        We will keep you informed with updates.
        If you have any questions, feel free to contact us because we are here to serve.

        Graciously,
        The Servants of

        (800) PURE-516
        Pure Wraps
        (Internal Code 1992)

        Just thought it was an interesting note on the topic. I wonder if we could wrestle with the USDA to knock it off! awwww prob'ly not.
        <sigh>

          Wow exotec. That is so interesting. It makes me wonder why Julian bakery is able to market virtually the same product. I wonder if it has to do with USDA approval. Maybe Julian Bakery went through the USDA red tape and Pure Wraps is just now going through it so they are on hold? That doesn't make sense because you don't have to have USDA approval to sell a product. My fat provider doesn't have the USDA stamp by choice but I think they have to keep their production down to a certain amount. Picking up some leaf lard next week so I will ask what it's all about.

            I haven't confirmed everything on this page, but enough if it is stuff I have seen elsewhere that I'm not sure I'll ever buy anything with the Julian Bakery name on it again: http://low-carb-scams.com/offending-...-scam-artists/
            Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

              Just to reiterate to everyone, since I'm the one who started this thread, I too tried the paleo bread and was truly disgusted with it, and then I also read the bad press about Julian and said the same thing to myself, that I wouldn't ever give them business again, but then when I saw the wraps advertised I was just really in a "missing tortillas" mood so I gave them a try anyway. I think if this other company started selling them again I would try them as well. At the moment though I am happy with the Julian ones. I have tried them with regular burritos, breakfast burritos, and with a sandwhich wrap with meat, cheese and avocado and I was happy with all of these uses. With the burritos I do fry them for a few seconds and add a little salt. FWIW

I was buying them from another maker (Pure Wraps, or some such...) but I understand they're in some sort of patent dispute at the moment, and the only source I could find was Julian. I made the horrific mistake of also trying some of their bread - never again! But insofar as the coco wraps, they're awesome. At least the ones I was using. The ones I just got from Julian are only coconut meat and water; the others also had Himalayan salt. The previous brand comes in regular or curry. The original are slightly yellowish, or tan... and the Julian version is very white. I'm not sure if this is good or bad!

                  The wraps are great, tho. They're very thin - like a wonton wrapper. But they're sturdy, and I've used them for cold wraps and hot ones as well. I've also put a bunch of berries-n-cream in some and they made a delectable dessert wrap. They don't taste coconutty to me, although I can catch a little whiff in the package if I try.

                  If you can find any, definitely try them! They're my staple sandwich go-to

                  =^..^=


                  and CiKi90 - yes, I made some Oopsies last week for the first time. They were pretty good... but I have to work on technique a bit. I folded the yolk into the white, which made it fall some. Very flat Oopsies! Still good and useable, though. I read a comment from another person on a recipe site somewhere that s/he uses Whoopie pan tins to make them in. They come out looking exactly like fast-food hamburger buns. I'm going to try that! The variations people list for Oopsies sound great. I'm totally carried away!

                  Ditto. They poached the idea from Pure Wraps.

                    I found these wraps this weekend at Whole Foods in the Freezer section with other "bread" items. They were about $10.99 for a pack of 7,but I bought some anyway. I like them quite a lot and they are very good fried in ghee. They are very sturdy and do not fall apart unless you get them too crispy. I hope these companies get the issues worked out soon so they can possibly get the price down. This item will make my life just a little more easy for food on the go.

                      Yes!! I know!! They do taste good and they are sturdy! I was wondering when someone else would agree. Before I went Paleo tacos/Mexican was my fav food, and although I love being Paleo and it has done great things for me, I was really mourning my tacos with an actual shell or tortilla. These wraps have completely cemented my resolve to remain Paleo, since getting over the loss of my tacos was really my last hurdle. And I really truly don't work for Julian or anything, and their bread is really really awful, and I would be happy to try the other wraps from the other company when they get their issues worked out, but mostly I just wanted to share my taco happiness! wow though 10.99 is really expensive. I'm thinking of doing their online bulk deal that they have right now, $49.00 for 49 wraps, but still shipping brings the price up a bit.

                        And I thank you for that! Also, thanks to Paleobird for posting the link to the bulk pack. I could not find it on the website.

                        The shipping does bring the cost up a bit, but there is a coupon right now on their Facebook page so it brought the price down a little. I really don't understand why they have to do two day shipping with the Paleo Wraps though. They would do just fine through USPS priority mail. I ordered the bulk pack before I found these at WF because I knew I would like them. The price they have on them is absurd though. I just got them in order to hold me over until the bulk pack gets here.

                        I made Tacos, which I have really missed (got tired of the taco salad in the bowl thing) and a BLT. Both were pure bliss.

                          Yes, having been raised here right on the Mexican border, the thought of never again having a taco is tough to face.
                          Paleo wrap quesodillas are blissful as well.

                              I will have to try that too! If I eat to many of these I will go broke though. BTW, I really like the new photo in your avatar.
