Festival Hearts of Palm Spaghetti at Costco Review
We bought them, and we’re giving them two thumbs up! We LOVE hearts of palm so we knew before we tried them, they were going to be up our alley. We also love low carb, low calorie, and low sodium quickie meal shortcuts…as we all know, most are opposite!
Firstly, our perception before trying them. There was something off putting about the term “brine” as we have only used it in relation to brining a turkey, it’s just kind of an unappealing word? And, the directions state “to neutralize the flavor and aroma…” so we were definitely a little scared to open these things up! But. Here’s the deal. I’m still not sure what brine means…I guess the liquid is salt water…seems silly not to just write that on the packaging (in case any marketing people care what we think, lol!)…and the flavor and aroma just means the taste and smell of hearts of palm. I guess if you despise it then maybe this problematic, but there’s not an unusually strong taste or smell. Both of our concerns were non-issues.
So now that that’s out of the way. We liked them! For the first preparation we made a simple recipe to really test out the taste and texture. In our simple preparation, we liked them, but wouldn’t say that we felt like we were eating noodles. We still felt like we were eating a vegetable. But we were eating a vegetable.
They were firm, which gives them their “noodle” like texture. Not crunch, but the texture of hearts of palm has a little firmness, which is still present. With a creamy sauce or more traditional pasta sauce or asian noodle recipe, we think these would work well to substitute for the noodle and probably act more like a noodle substitute. We definitely liked them light years better than zoodles.

They are like what zoodles are to zucchini. If you hate hearts of palm I’d say there are probably better keto noodle options for you. If you like or are ambivalent about them…then these are worth a try!

Is Hearts of Palm Pasta Good?
Not sour at all! Pretty flavorless with a hint of taste, but even if you don’t like hearts of palm I don’t think you’d know unless you read what it was made from before tasting. The texture is very soft with a little bite at the end like al dente noodlesnocontactnotpossible via Reddit
Haha I had this for dinner yesterday! (For the first time) I cooked up some tomato sauce in a pan then added the palm noodles and heated it all together. Then I added a good amount of grated mozzarella. It was super good. I was surprised – it was just as good as regular pasta! The melty cheese made it especially satisfying. I will definitely make it again and experiment more.winnyweasel via Reddit
