Mission low carb tortillas shrinkage
I eat about one of these a day as a bread substitute, the latest package is labeled "New look, same great taste". The have reduced the size of the tortillas about 50-75%. I realize with inflation, blah blah, but I'd rather pay more to get what I want.

Edit: They went from 20 to 12 oz, same 8 count.

I noticed it too. Costco been running out before I get there and Sam’s seem to be always nearly expired.

The only 20 oz packages I’ve seen were for the burrito size. I usually get the fajita size. Taco size is smaller.

Has the nutritional label changed? If not, I bet it was originally mislabeled so they decided to change the product to match the label instead of increasing the carbs/calories on the label to be accurate.

The FDA only recently started making companies re-evaluate their nutritional content and update it on a somewhat regular basis (every couple years or something?), so you may notice a ton of packaged items have had the nutritional content change in the past year.

We get those frequently. I honestly can't tell the difference between the low carb and regular ones.



We got the Hola Nola ones for a while, but they seem to fall apart and break easier.

The Extreme Wellness Tortillas at Sam's are really good, and there are 16 in a package. La Banderita's are really good, too, but they stick together- I guess they were previously frozen. They make great ham & cheese mini wraps for the kids.

I went crazy on some homemade fajitas and had about 5 of those bad boys a few weeks back.

They each have 10 grams of fiber. Oh man, when i took my first sip of coffee the next morning.......

I buy both of these as well, they are good but the sodium levels are a bit high. But that is just bread/tortilla products in general. Comes with the territory

I only see one size of the low carb ones. Usually shop at Rouses, that is all they carry.

Looks like they now also carry a smaller size. I’m telling you, only the large burrito size is a 20 oz package.

I’ve looked at these several times, but by the time you pay $7-9 for shipping, the cost doesn’t seem worth it. And to get free shipping, you have to order 7 packs- I can’t imagine using 168 tortillas in a reasonable amount of time, even if they can be frozen
