Mission Delicatessen Wraps, Wheat & White, cost £1.68 for a packet of 8 tortilla wraps. I don't think this is an unreasonable price, though I do tend to only buy these when they're available on buy one get one free, which they often are. The packets are supposed to be resealable, although how well they reseal varies from packet to packet. I get a pack one week that reseals perfectly, without allowing any air to sneak in, and the next week I'll get a packet that won't stay shut no matter what I do! I often end up just transferring these into clingfilm or a large sandwich bag. If you leave them with the packet open, they'll go off a bit quickly. The wraps are quite tasty, with a soft but chewy doughy texture to them. They're a little bit healthy, with lots of wheatgerm flour in them. I suppose this is the tortilla wrap version of Hovis Best of Both in some respects! I definitely think both products share the aspect of tasting like a white product, while sharing some wholemeal health benefits. These are easy to cook with, and work best for me if I zap them in the microwave for twenty seconds, then fill them, then zap them again when all wrapped up (unless they've got a cold filling like salad of course). They're nice and pliable to wrap with when heated slightly, and they hold the filling better than some cheap brands do. These say they have to be kept in the fridge and used up within 3 days, but I find that they keep fine in the cupboard and can keep for up to a week quite often, so long as you make sure they're sealed properly. I don't advise ignoring the use by product information of course, I'm just saying what my personal experience is. All in all, these are tasty little things that have a good texture, are easy to use, keep well if sealed properly and have some healthy benefits thanks to their wheatgerm content. I think they're reasonably priced, and always buy them when they're on special offer. I think they're a four star product and would recommend them to all. My only grumble is that the resealable seal should work every time, not every now and again.
