I bought 2 packages of the Shirataki noodles at the beginning of strict.  I did not like the rubbery texture at all but still ate the allowed portion.  Then my digestive system totally rebelled.  Ended up throwing the rest out.  After I did some investigation and learned that it can have that reaction on some people.

Of the Shirataki noodles, these are my favorite.  I've always been partial to angel hair pasta, so I really like the smaller diameter noodles.  The angel hair variety also has fewer carbs than the regular.

While I generally prefer to buy the Shirakiku style (clearish whitish) noodles instead of the tofu ones, when I do buy the tofu ones I prefer the "angel hair" format.  I like the lower carbs and calories (not much different than the regular, but a savings is a savings).  These noodles can really be a treat if you prepare them correctly.

These are fantastic.  Don't be put off by the fishy smell when you open the bag.  Rinse them fully for 1 minute under cold water, pop them in the microwave for another 1 minute, and then dry roast then in a frying pan on high heat for a few minutes to dry them up.  

I like them a lot more than the Shirataki fettuccine that I've tried as I find them less rubbery, and more like regular noodles.  Overall, they're an excellent treat during strict.
