I think for celiacs this is as huge as the parting of the Red Sea!
I have been blogging about Udi’s for a few months now…I think I called their gluten-free bread something like… oh yeah, the “Holy Grail” of the gluten free world. I’m not joking either.
The sandwich bread is moist and tender just like the Wonder Bread days of my youth. Right out of the bag!! No toasting required! The whole grain bread (my personal favorite) is equally as tender and moist but with a more whole (shhh…”wheat flavor”), minus the gluten of course.
You can even leave an opened bag of Udi’s GF bread on your countertop for a few days (just like gluten bread)…before you need to freeze it.
For me, the very best thing about Udi’s GF bread…being a mom to a celiac child, school lunches can be challenging. Not anymore. Sam proudly takes his very own PB&J to school everyday to eat alongside his buddies.
While I am slowly coming out of my bag lady phase (bread bag that is…yes, I carried a loaf of Udi’s GF bread with me everywhere just to have random folks try it)…the best replies were always, a blank stare and the reply, “what’s the big deal? It’s just bread.” Bingo! But because I hated to tease people who couldn’t get it either because it was ALWAYS out of stock (probably because I was buying up the entire ABQ. supply to horde in my freezer) or it just wasn’t sold in a lot of areas, like Ohio for instance. When my friend Mary came out for a visit, she loved the bread but when she got home, it was no where to be found.
That is now a thing of the past! You can now Udi’s gluten free products online. Breads, pizza crusts, lemon streusel muffins, blueberry muffins and something new for me to try…gluten free granola…REAL granola, with Oats!!!! Yipee!
There is one very disappointing thing about Udi’s gluten free online store… WHERE ARE THE CINNAMON ROLLS??????? What happened to them? I loved them and I only have one left. I have been rationing my supply since July. I have been reduced to licking it on occasion, just for a taste, since they seemed to have disappeared and I cannot get anymore…sniff.
Anyhoo, if you have not tried Udi’s gluten free products yet, go online and order some today!! By the way, I was kidding about licking the cinnamon roll, but now that it is in my head, I wouldn’t be surprised if it happens. 🙂 LOL!
Udi’s son, Etai tweeted about this funny Udi’s review on You Tube a while back and it is great.
