The flavors are great and I'm a big fan of sneaking vegetables into my food. It's healthier than a regular pancake by far, but doesn't have the nutritional substance to be a total meal replacement (which is fine). Personal knack, I make mine in the microwave (water + mix + 2 min in microwave) and they turn out much fluffier than on the pan. Not sure why, but my pan-cooked ones come out flatter and are more likely to be undercooked in the middle.
I discovered this brand at the Showfields Mission Market in NYC. One of the co-founders, Joe, was doing a pancake demo and was kind enough to speak with me in depth about his products and their mission. His passion for healthy foods and climate-friendly products was clear and impressive. I am gluten-free so I couldn't try the sample, but everyone was giving rave reviews and he mentioned they'll be releasing a gluten-free mix in a few months. You better believe I'll be the first one in line to try that out!
Otherworld is delicious! These are always my go-to pancakes & waffles for when I'm having brunch with my dairy-free friends :)

I purchased the bundle pack with four different flavors. The flavors are nice I have no complaints there the problem is none of the pancakes come out fluffy. They are all undercooked and gooey in the middle. I have tried different settings on the heat, cooking for longer periods, adjusting the water to mix ratio and nothing helps. I have also cooked the waffles and they come out the same way. They are lacking something to give them the rise that they need. I will not purchase again unless I know that a change has been made. You would be better off just getting your vegetables on the side.
Add whatever ingredient you need to to help these pancakes rise better.
Otherworld gave me the excuse I needed to eat pancakes everyday. They're light in both texture and the way they leave you feeling -- no breakfast hangover or sugar come down. They're my go-to lately for a balanced (and delicious) breakfast!
I recommend splurging on the bundle and getting to try all the available flavors. This has last been lasting me a while (granted I cook for one). Unfortunately, there's no option for purchasing just one tin at the moment.
