Today I had the most amazing breakfast. I made a plate with cheesy eggs, bacon, fresh raspberries and gluten free toast. I hadn’t planned on reviewing the bread, but it was just so surprisingly good that I decided to get the word out.
This week I have been eating Cinnamon Chex and yogurt, but I decided I missed having a good eggs and bacon breakfast. Yesterday I went to Earth Fare in Greensboro and picked up some Udi’s Gluten Free Bread to include with my breakfast. I had heard of Udi’s before and was told that it was top-notch as far as gluten free products are concerned. Having never tried gluten free bread, I was pretty nervous about how it would taste, but also about the texture. I have a thing about food textures– I don’t care how good it tastes, if the texture isn’t pleasant, I’m spitting it out.
When I opened the bread I immediately noticed that it wasn’t soft like most regular breads, but it had a pleasing aroma. I popped a piece into my toaster and it came out nice and crispy. I applied a thin layer of margarine and the bread soaked it up, which is a lot more than I can say for some regular breads I’ve toasted in the past.
The first bite was absolutely delicious. This bread has a great flavor, as well as texture. It wasn’t crumbly and it tasted very fresh, despite its not-so-soft feel. The grains around the crust added some interest to the texture. In my opinion, it tasted close to a homemade wheat bread. It was extremely satisfying.
Even my babies Grumpy (who’s in the middle of asking for a treat) and Daisy were curious…
I give the Udi’s Gluten Free Bread (Millet-Chia) an A+. Even though I don’t have anything to compare it to, the bread was completely satisfying to me. The texture and taste combined make a lovely bread that I couldn’t even tell was gluten free. This bread rivals the Nature’s Own Honey Wheat I’ve been eating for years! If you’re looking for a great new gluten free bread, please try Udi’s. I promise, it’s worth it!
