Product Review: Udi's Gluten Free Buns and Ancient Grain Breads

Udi's Gluten Free is launching their NEW line of Hamburger Buns, Hot Dog Buns and two varieties of Ancient Grains Breads this month... just in time for your summer BBQs!  I have been waiting for what seems like a very long time for Udi's Gluten Free to make buns; I figured that since their bread is soft, delicious and doesn't need toasting that their buns would be superior to others on the market.  I was right.

My family sampled Udi's new gluten free buns and Udi's new gluten free Ancient Grain Breads and they were a hit!  My daughter enthusiastically announced "I love Udi's Hamburger Buns" at the dinner table after she tried them; I especially liked them toasted on the grill.  I was impressed by how soft Udi's Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns were, although I was lucky to get a taste because my teenage son (who is a hot dog fanatic) ate almost all of them in a matter of days. :)  

Udi's Ancient Grain Breads are moist, full of earthy flavor and although these breads do not need to be toasted to be enjoyed I happen to think they are exceptionally tasty when toasted; it seems to enhance the flavor of the grains.  Udi's Gluten Free Millet-Chia Bread and Omega-Salba Bread offer healthy elements such as protein, fiber, vitamins and anti-oxidants. Try them for yourselves... there is no other gluten free bread on the market like them!  

Udi's is having a big Facebook promotion... If you “like” Udi’s you will get a $1 off coupon and if you tell three friends about Udi’s you'll be entered to win a weekly prize and a $500 gift card!  Woo hoo!

Encourage the Girl Scouts to Offer Gluten Free Cookies - Sign the Petition Today!

I found this link to sign a petition to encourage the Girl Scouts of America to sell a gluten and allergen free Girl Scout Cookie.  I am a former Girl Scout leader and an advocate for my daughter who has Celiac disease; I find it heartbreaking to see her missing out on the simple pleasures of life such as enjoying Girl Scout Cookies with her friends, so I was happy to sign the petition.

Please follow this link to sign the petition... 100,000 votes are needed by the end of May and there are currently less than 500 signatures.

Please post this link to the petition on your gluten free blogs, Facebook and Twitter pages to help spread the word.  Together we can make a difference!
