An awesome pasta at an incredible price. You will not find the quality for the price anywhere else. The Israeli toasted pearl couscous is a great ingredient and perfect for our chicken couscous soup. The couscous boils up great.

This Couscous is a great product and a great value. The directions on the package could use a bit of tweaking though. I have prepared it several times, and I find it best to sauté the couscous first in a little olive oil then add the boiling water(or stock) in a one to one ratio. Return to a boil and simmer till just al-dente. 6 or 7 minutes. For extra flavor and color, I've even started with sautéed onion and red pepper.

The particle of this couscous is bigger than I thought. After cooking, it almost looks like beans. Bit soft. not familiar texture is covered with great price. I mainly use it add to the salad.

this cous cous costs less than a third of what I was paying and is so much higher quality it's unbelievable! Makes a great side dish and can be used in so many different ways. Buying in bulk just enhances my savings!

Very interesting! Never had any pearl-size before but quite enjoyable. And found a nice, new use: making a version of tapioca pudding with these plus milk and sweetener.

This is a great change if you are looking for a good side that is not your normal rice or pasta. I enjoy working with differnt things and these worked well for the day i used it.

One of the best tasting couscous I have tried. It's a hard to find item in my area, and we use it at home as a side dish. Easy to make as much or as little as you need.

I think this is a good product, but do not follow the cooking process listed on the package- I cook for only a few minutes, and let rest off the heat to finish absorbing the liquid. Package directions result in overcooked, mushy couscous.

This couscous are larger than we are use to. They are easy to cook and taste good. However, I find this product has a little slim after cooking. My personal preference is drier couscous like the mediterranian style. Taste is a personal thing, not good to some but excellent to others. Not too impress but still good. I rate this as 3 stars.

The couscous was slightly larger than what I was accustomed to. Surprisingly, it is a great addition to our menu and it is very delicious. Perfect packaging and excellent restaurant quality and value.
