They are not too terrible considering they're zero calorie. Tastes like rice noodles, but more rubbery. You'll need to saute it with something in order for them to absorb some flavor from other food. I make miso soup with them.
I made the mistake of not rinsing them the first time I tried them. So awful I thought they had gone bad. (The liquid they come in smells like funky spunk, no lie) I later found some fresh packages at my local Asian grocery, rinsed them thoroughly in a colander before cooking, and enjoyed them. They're a little chewy and a little rubbery, so don't expect exactly the soft give of regular pasta. They remind me a tiny bit of the cheese curds in poutine. Overall, pretty good for moments where you just want a self-indulgent snack, but don't completely want to cheat on good eating.
Thanks for posting this offtop. Like others here stated; I always wanted to try these but the price was so high I never could justify making the purchase.
I purchased 7 bags though because of the annoying add-on requirement. I thought having Amazon Prime would eliminate such frustrations but no such luck. I guess we must all endure funky difficulties trying to cut out carbs in our diet
im not sure if there are variations from brand to brand, but ive used these yam noodles purchased from jungle jims in cincinnati. as everyone has said, they are a little rubbery, but i enjoyed the chewy texture. to note, ive only ever used them in stir-fry/pad thai.
