Please recommend a Pita bread brand

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I've been trying different brands of Pita bread without success. I don't like Trader Joe's because it's too thin and tears too easily. I REALLY don't like the Wild Oats brand; it tastes too doughy and potato-y. I bought a brand called Turlock at Whole Foods which I picked out because it's vegan, and it's AWFUL! It's doughy, and the taste (IMO) is horrendous.



I'm too lazy to make my own pita, at least for the time being. If I have to, I'll keep trying different brands, but I would really appreciate brand recommendations so I don't end up throwing out a lot of bread, both the baked and the financial kinds.



Thank you all.

Eh, I had to take the word "good" out of the thread title in order for the post to successfully be submitted as a new thread.

Words you could have used instead of good: yummy, great, delicious, acceptable, better, superior, your favorite... you are obviously not a wordsmith!



I always get Toufayan at my regular grocery, and I think it's fine. I THINK I recall finding that it was dairy-free.

I eat Alexis pita. I think it might be a local brand though. They make regular and whole wheat.

I like Aladin, but being a local brand that doesn't help you.



Walk into Whole Foods and ask an employee what the best pita bread is. They either know directly or know what sells the most (which highly correlates with which is the best).

Lemme check the local co-op (I'm a member) for the Ezekiel. If I can't find it, maybe they'll special order it for me.

I eat Thomas's Sahara Whole Wheat and it's really good and easy to find. Does anyone know for sure if the mono and di-glycerides in it are veggie-derived? I've been meaning to confirm that, but I'm sure they are.

the turlock wheat (but not the white) is the only store-bought kind that i like. i love the smell of it. everything else is too tough/dry.

I just bought the whole grain Turlock pita bread from Whole Foods, and I think it's out of this world.

Ugh. I would be happy just to find ANY pita bread at my Whole Foods. I was actually trying to buy some today, the girl in the bread aisle sent me to the bakery, the guy at the bakery sent me to cheese/specialty, and the guy at cheese/specialty tried to send me to the bread aisle. I also checked International, on the off chance it was there, but it was not.

I don't have a Whole Foods so I have no idea where it would be and I'm sure each one is set up differently anyways, but a few of my grocery stores carry pita bread in the deli section right near the meat counter. (Although I'm not sure if that is what you meant by the cheese/specialty aisle?).

They aren't the traditional whole pita loaves, but I really like the Kangaroo whole wheat pita pockets: http://kangaroobrands.com/pita-products/breads



They're just the whole pita already cut in half. They have an honest ingredients list and they taste great. Use 'em just about every day for taking my lunch to school. Just stuff it with some black beans and veggies...nothin' finer!

Yeah, the cheese/specialty section is the giant deli-like area that is mostly cheese. It also has the olive bar, and some assorted dips/spreads, specialty crackers, etc. It's sort of between meat, prepared foods, and the salad bar.

My grocery shopping run stops at Target (no pita), a local grocery store (one brand of nasty dry pita), and Whole Foods (no one knows where the pita is). I just need to make a run down to the Middle Eastern grocery where they have nice flatbread, which I prefer to the pockets.
