Udi’s Soft and Delicious White Sandwich Bread

Gluten free, Soy free, Dairy free and nut free

March 17, 2013

I love Udi’s products they just don’t disappoint.  If you have had many Gluten Free, Soy Free and Dairy Free pre-made breads you will probably notice many of them fall apart.  If you put anything like a condiment or a juicy tomato, meat, or freshly cleaned veggies you know that sandwich is not going to hold up and you might as well grab a fork to eat with and make a bread salad.  Super convenient that these can come pre-frozen and this comes in handy for two reasons.

  1. It is ready to go, no baking and it is pre-sliced
  2. You don’t have to worry about it going bad in 2-3 days when it is stored in your refrigerator

I just take mine out of the freezer, and (depending on your toaster) I do a frozen setting and toast it.  The only thing is I wish this bread was bigger!  It may look big as pictured but keep in mind that it is on a salad plate.  Why are all the Gluten Free Breads small?  Why I ask?  Maybe it is the universe trying to tell me to eat less, well ha to you my friend, I ate two sandwiches instead.  That will show ya!

If you would like to look at their other products or check out the ingredients I included a link below to Udi’s Breads page.

Udi’s Soft and Hearty Whole Grain Bread

Gluten free, Soy free, Dairy free and nut free

Jan. 12,  2013

Honestly out of the two Udi’s White or Whole Grain Breads, I prefer this one.  I love whole grain bread, What can I say?  Both are very good and both hold up exceptionally well to condiments and a generous amount of fillings.  I toasted it 2x for extra crunch like I do for dipping in nice hot soup as you can see pictured.  First I do a Frozen setting to do a quick defrost and then a toast.  Note: Keep a close eye on it so it doesn’t burn.  Then I added Soy Free Butter Alternative, and Oregano and a tiny hint of Garlic Salt.  This was a quick fix for garlic bread and made an awesome lunch.  Although if you are at work you may want to skip on the garlic.  Unless you don’t like your co-workers then pile it on.   Or if you have that one creepy person at work, who stares at you and doesn’t understand personal space, then by all means pile it on.  Of course the alternative is the creeper likes the boldness of garlic. I got a little off track, but I am sure you all know, there is always that one person.  Anyway of all the Whole Grain- Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Soy Free Breads this one is my favorite so far!  It does have more of a Whole Grain flavor probably due to the Teff and Flax ingredients which set it apart to its Soft and Delicious White counterpart. Enjoy

Udi’s Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread Review 

Gluten free, Soy free, Dairy free and nut free

Jan. 29, 2012


There is no secret that Udi’s is one of my top National Gluten Free pre-packaged food brands.  Their prices are right in line of average or below, they are super convenient by being ready to go, and the products taste comparatively to their non-gluten counters (aka… THE PAST, before Gluten Free became a necessity).  Udi’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread won me over with flying colors.  A nice light note of cinnamon and a sprinkling of raisins in each slice.

In this case I changed it up a bit with some Home-Made Almond Nut Butter, fresh slices of bananas, a tiny drizzle of golden raw honey and a sprinkle of Saigon Cinnamon on this toasted delight.  Very good I must say and it kept me full until after lunch time.  It was so palatable that I decided to eat it for about a week straight and eventually, I even shared.  I know you don’t know me yet, but if you did, you would know I don’t like to share, especially when it comes to food.  Maybe this stems from being an almost only child.  My motto is if you wanted some, then you should have ordered your own!

In this case I felt bad my hubby was looking famished, and I had stuffed my face, so I shared… thinking well I have a whole loaf and he is only going to want one slice.  Before I knew it, a slice here and there, and then the sadness came when the end or butt if you prefer, of the once comforting cinnamon raisin bread was only a glimmer of what once was.  So again I reminded my husband, I am not sharing my next loaf so he better pick up two!

Udi’s Cinnamon Rolls Review

Dairy, Soy, Gluten and nut free

July 3, 2014

Well I am going to make this short.   There was nothing moist nor tasty about this as stated on the wrappings of this 4 pack.  It was inedible, hard and tasted stale and the glaze was more  like a cinnamon and sugar cold mess with a soapy aftertaste.  I have no idea why people are complimenting these on instagram, I am hoping that I just got a bad batch, but too many wrong things happened here.  Back to the drawing board on these….please!

Udi’s Double Chocolate Muffins Review

Gluten free, Dairy free, Soy free, and Nut free

June 2, 2014

Four in a package found in the freezer section of your grocery store.  Resilient in texture like their other muffins.  Named Double Chocolate due to the fact that not only is there cocoa in the mix but there are also chocolate chips strewn throughout each muffin.  When you warm them just right, the chips gently melt and you get a soft rich muffin with a little gooey chocolatey goodness.  These don’t taste overly sweet as I was expecting, I think they are just about perfect and cure my chocolate cravings.

Udi’s Lemon Streusel Muffins Review

Gluten free, Dairy free, Soy free, and Nut free

July 3, 2014

I love Udi’s Muffins, I haven’t found one of their muffins yet, that I haven’t enjoyed.  Soft, sweet, very springy and has a pleasing real lemon flavor.  I personally find these pretty filling and considering they are comprised mostly of tapioca starch and brown rice flour, aptly so.  4 to a pack in your grocer’s freezer section.  I like to keep these on hand to take on the go or when I don’t feel like baking and especially good for travel.  I just keep them frozen and take them out of the freezer before I hit the road.  They defrost in a couple hours, depending on temperature.

Udi’s Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Review

Gluten free, Soy free, Dairy free and nut free

September 24, 2013

So I am comparing this bagel to their Cinnamon Raisin Bread and in all honesty I prefer the bread, by far.  First these lack the cinnamon flavor and raisins compared to their bread.  Second they are much drier and more crumbly.  If you like significantly mild flavored bagels and plan to put a good amount of smear or similar these might work, but I will stick to their bread.  Four come in a pack and even if you only eat half a bagel a day, the bread will stretch farther.  Sorry Udi’s, add more cinnamon, more oil, a little more sugar and you could have yourself a much better bagel.

Udi’s Margherita Pizza

Gluten free and no Soy

October 1, 2013

Udi’s Margherita frozen pizza is more like a personal sized pizza.  A very thin and very crisp crust is topped with a narrow attention of lightly sweetened tomato sauce and a touch of garlic.  The layer of cheese is more like a lightweight sprinkle, which I prefer, but I really don’t like how pictures on the box are nothing like the actual product.  I personally think this pizza could use less crunch and add some chew to the texture.  The sauce could be heavier with more herbs, garlic and a little more sweetness.  At least it cooked well, maybe a tad too crunchy, but it didn’t burn following the directions, so that is a plus.  I haven’t been satisfied with a gf frozen pizza yet, but there is always hope.
