Casablance Gardens used dishonest labeling

Package Label
Package Label
CANDIAC, QUEBEC, CANADA -- I purchased a Casablanca Gardens' product prominently labeled ‘Tabouli’ in very bold letters. When I opened the package I discovered it was nothing of the sort. It turns out in fact to be simply a version of Couscous with which they include a can of extra ingredients, and then label the package as ’Tabouli’. Even the picture on the package is dishonest, showing Bulgar wheat when there is none, and saying it is 'instant' Tabouli taking only five minutes, when in fact following their directions it takes at least 35.

The base ingredient for TABOULI is BULGAR WHEAT. The base for COUSCOUS on the other had is moistened semolina wheat. THERE IS NO COMPARISON AND NO MISTAKING THEM!

(It's called 'truth in advertising'. You can not paint a Kangaroo yellow and call it a Canary)

I tried the Casablanca Tabouli from Krogers from their markdown section. The regular price was supposedly $5.99 but was marked down to $2.99, I am glad I didn't pay anymore for it.... On a scale from 1-10 I give it a 1. I wouldn't even pay .25 cents for their Tabouli. If you want a good Tabouli mix try the Fantastic Foods Tabouli where you add in your own fresh tomato and cucumber!

No, this is NOT tabouli. I've eaten Tabouli for many, many years, this is mush. not even good couscous, just MUSH.
BULGAR or BULGHUR is cracked whole wheat, processed by a parboiling method, has a nutty flavor (this did not) and a lovely texture to contrast with the added veggies. And the product, while it claims to have lemon in it, heck, no!
Disgusting and fraudulent, selling this stuff as "tabouli"

LARVAE! Yes! I had the same experience as Breeda. Disgusting worms in it. I made it the same day I bought it in the store. To make matters worse I TASTED it before I say the worms. UGH
