These Great Value Panko Italian bread crumbs are not quite what I expected. I have used Italian bread crumbs (non-Panko style) for many years without issue, but these are something else! I have used these for meatballs and meatloaf (twice). The first meatloaf was very basic, but came out with a strange herb-y flavor undertone that I couldn't place. Now again, tonight I made an Italian-inspired meatloaf, and that strange herb-y flavor reared it's ugly head. To me and my daughter, these taste like thyme. A LOT of thyme. We do not like thyme with beef, at all. The ingredient list does not include anything but oregano and "natural flavor". Not sure what makes these so strongly flavored and somewhat offensive, but maybe a re-work of flavor profile is warranted, Walmart.
