Pasta Slim...

...has anyone heard of this product? I just bought some at the grocery store. There are only 40 calories and 2 carbs for the entire bag. They also have a spinach flavor. I'm trying them for lunch today, as it's a DD for me. Supposedly they don't have the "smell" that shirataki noodles have and you don't have to rinse them.

Tried the spinach ones and didnt care for the texture. I think its the tofu in them i dont like. I do eat the plain shirataki noodles however. I like the NoOdles brand. I think thats it??

I just made soup with the Pasta Slim "noodles" and the texture is strange. Kind of stringy or rubbery? Shirataki noodles don't have the same texture? Its probably been 8yrs since I had shirataki noodles and all I remember is that I didn't like them. Should give them another shot.

I get the angel hair shirataki and i have noticed that they actually can be cooked a little so the texture is actually ok. I dont think that happens with the tofu added ones. The brand i get has lime in the ingredients and i think that could be why i prefer them.
I did just buy the miracle noodle brand of fettuccine garlic and herb. That will be my first experience with fettuccine other than the spinach tofu ones.
