Bon Appétit Magazine Recognizes H-E-B for Making the 'Best Supermarket-Brand Tortillas'


  • H-E-B
With hundreds of locations throughout the state, it's easy to forget that H-E-B stores (and their in-store tortillerias) only exist in Texas.

However, a recent Bon Appétit article recognized the grocery giant for making the best supermarket-brand flour tortillas in the U.S.

Author Alex Beggs, a Lone Star State native, waxes nostalgic about enjoying warm, buttery tortillas from her childhood H-E-B and laments how nothing (or no other store brand) can offer the same experience outside of Texas.

The fact that H-E-B offers some of the best readily available tortillas may not be surprising news to Texans, but it's a good reminder to hold your freshly made tortillas tight.
