I am a lover of carbs. Serious carb lover. So I as I see more of my friends decide they have gluten sensitivities need to swear of most carbs I mourn a little bit for them. I mean a life free of carbs is not worth living.
Well Udi’s might just agree with me. Which is why they have a great selection of gluten- free foods that totally would make any carb lover happy. With OR without the gluten.
I received a nice little package of muffins and bagels to review. Actually I would be lucky to get a bit in. The box came and the kids, home from their first day of Christmas vacation, descended on the box like hyenas. Seriously, you would think they have never seen muffins and bagels before!!
I gotta say, since our house is not gluten- free I don’t really have a big base for comparison, but I thought they were all quite delicious. I must say I had kind of low expectations for gluten-free food, but if I wouldn’t have known it was gluten-free, I never would have guessed.
The plain bagel tastes like a… plain bagel. Which isn’t a bad thing with some cream cheese. But the cinnamon bagel smelled so good in the package that I literally kept wondering if I was baking something and had forgotten. It was equally yummy tasting.
Then there are the muffins. The Lemon Streusel Muffins have this yummy tart topping on them. They remind me of a lemon poppy seed muffin. So yummy. But the Double Chocolate Muffins taste like chocolate cake. I had a nice Bill Cosby moment having chocolate cake for breakfast. So so so so good. The package comes with 4 muffins in it. And 2 hours after the package arrived…..there were none. So, yeah. We liked them.
Overall I was very impressed with what I tried. And since they didn’t “taste” gluten-free (not that I know what that tastes like), I think I would be inclined to buy them for our house. My kids certainly like them AND I could actually decipher the ingredient list which is a rarity these days.
I wrote this post in participation with Udi’s holiday gluten free entertaining campaign. As always all opinions are mine.
