re:Dixie Diner

It's been interesting to read the 'reviews' on Dixie D's products.  I've
ordered a few things from them in the past, and have had both lovely
suprises and some real disasters, too. 

I, like others, really like the nutlettes.  By substituting nutlettes for
walnuts, almonds, or pecans in quick bread or muffin recipes, the same
nutty texture remains.  (Of course it makes a good breakfast cereal too!) 

Another product I got from D.D's was "Heartline Meatless Meats", Italian
sausage style.  What I expected was T.V.P. appropriately seasoned, but NOT
with the addition of vegetable oil.  One portion has 7grams of fat...much
much more than the defatted T.V.P. would be that was used in the product.
What a shame!

I would also suggest steering clear of their powdered yoghurt mixes.  VERY
artificial tasting, poor texture, and too sweet.  Nothing like the real
thing tucked in the refrigerator I've found!

Hope this is a useful for those wanting to try D.D. products.
