Friday Night Photos: Look What I Ordered Online!

I'm thrilled that I can now order Joseph's Baker products online!

In the summer of 2005 I visited some friends in Rhode Island, and while I was there I discovered Joseph's Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread and wrote about it on my then brand-new food blog.   Then several years later I connected online with Lydia from The Perfect Pantry, and she happened to live in Rhode Island.  When Lydia mentioned in a post that she liked the products from Joseph's Bakery I left a comment saying how much I liked them too, and she generously offered to send me some.  When those arrived in the mail, I made Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas and Tortillas into an official Kalyn's Kitchen Pick.

Through the years I've heard rumors that these products were going to be sold online (and many people have found my two posts through Google and asked where they could buy them.)   In 2010 I even got a comment from Joseph himself on the original post, pointing me to the Joseph's Bakery Website, where he said they soon hoped to offer shipping.  I checked a few times though, and no options to ship to Utah.  By now Lydia and I were pretty good friends, but still I didn't want to impose on her to keep my low-carb pita bread habit going!

Then about a week ago I checked again on a whim, and found that I could order the Joseph's Bakery products and pay to have them shipped to my house!  Happy pita bread days were here again!  I ordered the Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Lavash Bread and the Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pita bread and was excited when they came in the mail a few days ago!

I wanted to share this information for everyone who's left comments through the years asking how they can find these products, but I do want to caution that you have to buy a case to get the products shipped (five packages each was the minimum for the two products I ordered).  I paid $9.99 for shipping which made the total cost of my products $3.98 per package if you did the math for the 10 packages I received.  I don't mind buying that many packs of pita bread or lavash at once, because they freeze well, and this is something I'll eat all the time if I have it around.  And if you use the links above to visit the Joseph's Bakery Website and check the nutritional information for each product, you'll understand why I am so excited to be able to order them online.

Joseph's also has a number of new products on the website that I'm not familiar with.  If anyone has tried products other than the tortillas, pita bread, and lavash, I'd love to hear in the comments about what your favorites are.

Joseph's Bakery has never sent me any samples or paid me in any way to write about their products.   (They do know that I'm alive though, since Joseph himself left a comment on the blog!)

  1. I bought the lavash once at a local Wal-Mart (in Frisco, TX) but have been completely unable to find them since. They made divine chips for my hummus!!! And frankly, they weren't much cheaper at the store. I think I paid $3 for the pack. So to have a stash for 4 bucks apiece? I'd say that's pretty good.

  2. Living in Boston I guess I always took this yummy bread for granted! I love making pizza out of the lavash...

  3. I adore these products -- and I'll happily ship if the web site ever runs out! I use the lavash, tortillas and pita bread all the time.

  4. I've heard GREAT things about this company and their products! I think it's especially convenient that you can order things online rather than hunt around in stores.

  6. The low-carb lavash has been a staple in our house for years! We have always bought it in bulk at BJ's. Glad you can get yours now too!

  9. Yes, both these products and the low-carb tortillas are great for South Beach Phase 2 or 3.

  10. Kalyn....I buy the Joseph's and a lot of other LC products at netrition.com

    The Joseph's Pita and Lavash are $2.99 a package and the Tortillas are $2.79 a package. The shipping is a flat $4.95 for whatever you buy. I also buy the Toufayan LC Pitas....a little higher in carbs than Joseph's but very good.

    To Marie...I found the Joseph's Pita at the Wal-Mart on Custer and 380 in McKinney. The are by the deli counter.

  11. I discovered these products a couple of years ago at my local grocery. They are great and it is nice to have a guilt-free sandwich now and then.

  12. Hi Kalyn. Brand new to your blog and am going to take your advice on stocking up on these. You mentioned that the freeze well, and I am sorry, but not the best at these types of things, but do you mind explaining how they are best kept in a freezer, and more importantly, how do we defrost them?

    I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much!

  13. I just freeze them in the package they come in and defrost for 30-45 seconds in the microwave. I do use them pretty quickly, so if you're freezing them for more than a few months I'd put them in a thick Ziploc type bag.
