Review: Udi's Gluten-free Baked Goods

I had the pleasure of having Udi’s wonderful baked goods shipped to me a few weeks back to sample.  I was so excited to give these products a try!  I received: Blueberry Muffins, Lemon Streusel Muffins, Pizza Crusts, White Bread & Whole Grain Bread. 

Muffins:

These muffins were moist & soft.  They were full of flavor & I really couldn’t get my hands on many because Jon claimed them as his breakfast!  He loved these muffins.  They didn’t crumble and remained moist for several days on the counter.

White Bread:

This is by far, the softest, freshest, best tasting gluten-free bread I have tasted since going gluten-free.  There was no toasting required. I was able to make Jon his PB & J sandwiches simply by spreading PB & J on bread that I had sitting on the counter.  I packed in his lunch box & he came home each day & raved about the bread.  Unbelievable.  I had to double check the ingredients to make sure the bread was truly gluten-free. 

Pizza Crusts:

The pizza crusts were just as good.  I made Jon the standard cheese pizza & fancied up mine.  The first was topped with EVOO, Frank’s Red Hot, fresh basil, spinach, mozzarella, chicken, eggplant & tomato.  The second one was my best creation yet:  BBQ sauce, mashed garbanzo beans, rotisserie chicken, fresh spinach, eggplant, provolone, pine nuts & fresh basil.  YUM!!!  The crust was  thin style & held up well to the sauces & toppings.  No crumbling & the taste was great. 

Whole Grain Bread:

I am officially in love.  I could eat this bread for every meal.  Soft & flavorful.  The only thing I can say I would change is that the slices are a little small, but I can deal with that.  The taste & texture make up for the size.  I don’t know how Udi’s does it, but I know that I need more.    For those interested, it does toast well too, but why toast when you don’t have to?  I tested this bread out by packing for lunches in the AM, too, and it works wonders. I also had a loaf frozen in the freezer, let it defrost on the counter & then ate at room temperature until it was gone a few days later.  Just as soft & moist. 

These products literally knocked my socks off!!  I couldn’t tell any of this stuff was GF.  There was no aftertaste, no crumbling….just moist & flavorful baked goods. 

Thank you Dee & Udi’s for sending me those amazing samples.  I hope that you are able to get Udi’s into a store here in Columbus soon!!!
