Holds up well to frying.

Ziyad cooks well and tastes good, but is not as flavorful as Casbah (which has a stronger flavor than any of the brands I mentioned).

I absolutely love falafel, and have tried a number of different falafel mixes, including Casbah, Ziyad, Swad, Nirav, and Manischewitz.

Until I tried Casbah, I liked Ziyad brand the best. Ziyad cooks well and tastes good, but is not as flavorful as Casbah (which has a stronger flavor than any of the brands I mentioned).

Swad and Nirav are good (they taste good but are less flavorful than Ziyad), but do not purchase the Manischewitz. It does not taste the way falafel is supposed to. The ingredients indicate that it is made with matzo meal, which is probably why it tastes so vastly different. It's not that it tastes bad, but it just doesn't taste like falafel. The packaging is nice... the mix is divided into two separate sealed pouches. Good for single people. Quantity wise it is less than the other brands, though.

I have not tried Near East or Fantastic Foods brand falafel mix, so cannot comment on the quality of those mixes.

Casbah tastes *perfect*. Spicy, crunchy, very flavorful, just the best. If you eat this brand you will never eat any of the others again.

UPDATE: September 2012: Ziyad has reformulated its falafel mix, and it tastes really yummy now! So try a box of that if you don't want to spend the big bucks to buy Casbah. Personally, I felt that Ziyad was so improved that I didn't need to spend the extra energy to hunt down the Casbah packages, or order in bulk from Amazon. Try it, and see what works for you. ^^

After trying to make Falafel from scratch and failing miserably, I decided to try this box mix. It turned out perfect! It was very easy as well as flavorful. Delicious.

This falafel kit has saved me many times. I always buy a few boxes and forget that I have it. Then, when I run out of groceries and I'm rifling through the cabinets for something tasty to eat, there it is! Falafel! Sometimes I eat it by itself, on a pita, or with crumbled spicy tofu.

This is our family's favorite falafel mix, that which comes closest to the best falafel's we've had in local restaurants. The flavor is nutty and spicy, and very consistent, box-to-box. They cook up a nice golden brown-to-brown and have an authentic crunchy consistency on the outside. When prepared as directed - add water and let sit for ten minutes - it produces a thick batter that holds together well and stays together through frying. We use a spring loaded falafel patty maker, though I think it would work just as well forming the patties by using a tablespoon.

The main reason for a five star review is for flavor and consistency, which are among the best I've found in a mix and - surprisingly - better than what I've had in more than a few restaurants and stands. It also doesn't hurt that these meet with my Jordanian father-in-law's approval when I do the cooking. (which, for me, is something akin to a French chef earning a Michelin star...) Taste is subjective, however, and I've seen arguments arise between falafel aficionados on which ones are the best: Lebanese, Israeli, Syrian, Greek, etc. So, before going out and getting a whole case of the stuff, I'd suggest trying one box first.

My preference is to fry these in peanut oil (about 1/2 inch in an iron skillet) as I feel peanut oil has a higher burning point than some other oils and think that it produces the best flavor. Naturally, this is not for the peanut-allergic among you. I've read that falafel can be baked and the box also gives instructions on this, though I've never tried it. For serious shoppers, the ingredients list unbleached wheat flour and does not indicate that it contains fava beans.

I chose this brand because of the price and free shipping availability. Delivery was as promised and in perfect condition. I had had this brand before as well as many others. It is not my favorite, but ranks highly.

I bought this on Amazon because my supermarket doesn't keep the falafel stocked, and most of the time it is sold out. The Casbah 10-pack is a good value and now I have enough falafel to last awhile, and the 10-ounce bag means you can easily cook a up a big batch without having to open multiple packets. But I have to say that the flavor is just OK, not as great as the other review would indicate in my opinion. Actually less spicy than the brand from my local store. Still, it is good. I may buy Casbah again, but probably I will try one of the other brands first.

Add water to hydrate the mix and form balls and fry. How could it get any easier? This product also is tasty! I prefer it cooked with a veggy oil other than olive oil.

I'm in Italy for a few years and can't find falafel mix here, so I ordered it from Amazon. The Casbah brand is high quality, fresh, packaged well, and cooks just like it should. The price is reasonable considering I can't get it anywhere else. Highly recommended.
