365 Everyday Value Zucchini Spirals Review

365 Everyday Value Zucchini Spirals

The Freezer Meal Frenzy staff has never been silent about our love of squash. From butternut squash to pumpkin to zucchini, we’ll eat squash in any form. That includes spirals, which is why we were chomping at the bit to check out 365 Everyday Value Zucchini Spirals. (365 Everyday Value, by the way, is a sub-brand of Whole Foods.)

These spirals can be heated on the stovetop, but you can also steam them in the microwave. The process takes 6 to 8 minutes, but it’s pretty effortless; you don’t need to do anything but toss the steamable bag in the microwave and wait for them to be done. After that, you just slice open the bag and toss them in your bowl.

We appreciate how easy this cooking method is, but we also have a few problems with it. Typically, if you cook your noodles on the stovetop, any water will evaporate. That didn’t happen in the microwave. When we sliced our bag open, it was filled with zucchini water. We were able to pour it out into the sink, but it seems like it changed the texture of the noodles.

We’ve tried several varieties of zucchini spirals, and these are easily the worst ones we’ve tried. The noodles are stringy and hard to bite through, and they have a sponginess to them that really turns us off. Flavor-wise, they’re pretty bland, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. We added some butter and pepper, but they couldn’t make up for the odd texture of the noodles. The only way we were able to salvage them was to combine them with some carrot spirals that we had in the freezer.

365 Everyday Value Zucchini Spirals might be palatable if you cook them on the stovetop, but when microwaved, these veggie noodles are pretty gross. If you’re trying to reduce your carb intake, there are much better options on the market. These spirals might be easy to prepare, but that doesn’t make up for their shortcomings.
