I would give this a 0 star, if I could! This is not Couscous! Nothing near the real stuff! Terrible taste and is soggy and sticky. I will not be buying this again.

Worst couscous I have ever had. This stuff is disgusting. The texture and taste is absolutely awful. I highly recommend buying a different kind elsewhere. The middle eastern markets have great options.

Wish I could give it zero stars! Tastes disgusting…has nothing to do with couscous. Tastes like soggy wet balls with no flavor! Absolutely horrid!!! Will never buy again. My recommendation is to stay far from this fake, tasteless crud!

Tastes terrible. Anyone wanting to eat actual couscous should go to the “middle eastern” aisle of their grocery store and buy the Ziyad brand or a different brand from this. Don’t waste your money.

This is not couscous. It’s large gloopy balls of pasta. Apparently “Israeli couscous” is a whole other thing, not actual couscous. It was invented by European immigrants to Israel who had never tasted couscous from Maghreb region and were trying to create a cheap factory-produced protein, so it has nothing in common with what we know as “couscous.” More like breadcrumbs soaked in water. Why doesn’t target sell real couscous?

Our family loves pearl couscous! We call them “pasta balls” for the kids, but that’s what they are! Love them as a side to chicken dinners or as the base of an Italian couscous salad I like to make!

Thank you target for the best price around! Love this Israeli couscous but my local store doesn’t carry it. Ordered online and it was delivered in two days. If you’ve never tried, you won’t be disappointed. Love with butter and lemon zest but you can also get more creative.
