Over the past week, more people have had the opportunity to sample Created Whole 100% Whole Wheat Tortillas, and the response has been VERY positive. At the “Mother of all Picnics”, (held on Mother’s Day), guests enjoyed “Pinwheels” with hummus, avocado, and veggies wrapped up in our tortillas. It was a hit! (Look for the recipe at the end of this post).

I had fun this week sampling tortillas at the Body Xchange Sports Club (on Truxtun and M) in Bakersfield. Some people were hesitant to try a tortilla sample, not expecting a whole wheat tortilla to taste good. Generally, whole wheat tortillas have the reputation of tasting gritty, stale, dry, and cardboardy. Not Created Whole Tortillas! Some people turned into serial samplers, and others responded with, “Wow! These are REALLY good! Where can I buy them?”

T.J. Giving us a thumbs up for great taste!

Now, you can buy Created Whole 100% Whole Wheat Tortillas by the dozen at Nature’s Food Market or eat one for lunch at Elaine’s Cafe. Hopefully, you will soon see us at other outlets including Lassen’s Natural Foods in Bakersfield and Shafter Apple Market. We will also ship to you, so check out our website to place an order.

If you missed our picnic the other day, here is the recipe for the Pinwheels we served. Enjoy!


1 Created Whole 100% Whole Wheat Tortilla

Trader Joe’s Hummus (we like the Jalapeno Cilantro flavor)

Shredded Carrots

Sliced Avocado

Sliced Onions

Sliced Olives

  • Spread the hummus evenly over the entire tortilla. Layer the carrots, avocado, onions, and olives in a row on the tortilla. (The row of veggies should be small on placed near to the edge closest to you). Begin to roll the tortilla up like a log (similar to what a sushi roll looks like). Once rolled, cut pieces 1 1/2 to 2 inches with a knife. Enjoy plain or dip in salsa!
