MORE Rudi's Gluten Free Bread

Well, here's the deal!
We got a free loaf of Rudi's Gluten Free Multigrain Sandwhich Bread to try (Thank you Rudi's!)
and gave it a test run today.
here is the nitty gritty
Me - I love it, especially as toast (maybe they should get a bloggy Toast award?) with butter and peanut butter. Couldn't get enough!!!! It was a bit drier as a sandwich bread BUT I only had PBJ on it and I think if I made a turkey, mayo, lettuce, tomato, avocado sammy - I may like it a lot. It is fairly moist and has good body and flavor not like some of the OTHER GF breads I've tried that taste and feel a bit like (AHEM) cardboard.
Hubby (He's the GF one in the family) Tastes good but won't eat more because it has Xantham Gum (purportedly from Corn)AND corn meal in it. He is sensitive to corn. DANG (yeah, right, it leave more for me to eat as toast!) But agreed the taste was certainly good so if you have no corn issues then it's a great bread!!!!
7 year old - not too fond of it. But come on, she's a kid and they all would rather have white (cough, choke, EWWWW) bread.
16 year old - didn't really like either but then again, she doesn't like anything unless it's BAD for her. I bet her assessment would change if she HAD to eat GF.
12 year old didn't try it because he was either asleep or too busy playing basketball and why bother using anything but regular bread if you don't have too! "Where's the pizza?" was his response. OK. So 2 out of 5 isnt horrible. And really what do the kids' opinions matter anyway when they don't have to eat GF. I don't and I love the bread but I am an adult with discerning taste! The kids did like the other fun stuff Rudi's sent (again, Thanks Rudi's) I am thinking of trying their Cinnamon Raisin Bread too. Why not?

  1. Just discovered Rudi's and immediately went to their website to learn more. Unfortunately, they use eggs, and I'm more sensitive to eggs than I am to gluten! Rats. Glad to hear you enjoyed it, though!
