Sonoma All Natural Carb Cutting Tortillas

I'm not usually one to look for "carb cutting" items, but I was craving soft tacos so I looked around Trader Joe's tonight. Found these "carb cutting" tortillas so I looked at the nutrition info and was blown away - 60 calories each, with 7g of fiber and 5g of protein. Insane!! They're "taco" size, so not the huge burrito size, but that's fine. They're kinda pricey (I think it was around $2.50 for 6 tortillas), but I appreciated the small number of tortillas. We ate all six tonight, and I enjoyed it. My husband wasn't a huge fan, but they're not your typical fat-laden flour tortillas. These are oodles of fiber and whole wheat and such, and frankly, I'll take the flavor hit to get the nutrition here. These are also made with no additives or preservatives, which I appreciated. I will buy these again when that taco craving calls to me...

Note: this picture is incorrect - it's a similar item but not exactly what I tried. I couldn't find a photo of the exact item, so I posted this so you can tell roughly what the packaging looks like to find in store.
