The mix isn't too heavy on carbs if you are monitoring how much of the sloppy Joe Mix you are eating. But the big question is how does it taste? Well, its not great. It has a very vinegary taste for me. It's edible, but I'm used to my Moms sloppy joe's which have much more of a sweet taste to them. Because of that, I ended adding a bit of Splenda Brown sugar to sweeten the mix. One spoonful did the job and the stuff was great. Regardless, if you are looking for something to fill the need of that childhood craving for lunchroom food, this works. Also, it's incredibly easy. Took about 10 minutes to cook the beef and add the sauce.
Its a time saver and a great way to switch things up if you want something other than chicken breasts and eggs.
