Rudi's Gluten Free Bakery

Not too long ago I was contacted by Rudi's Gluten Free Bakery and asked to try their bread since I wrote a (MOSTLY) Gluten Free Recipe Blog. I told them "NO PROBLEM" and told them of our family situation. Today, the UPS guy dropped off a box for us!
We opened it to find this....
Which was filled with this! My kids are already fighting over the little sandwich keeper (it's pretty cute, I admit!) WE will be trying the bread today for out PB&Js that we take with us to the kids' basketball games. My kids aren't the Gluten Free ones, it's hubby who said he probably won't try the bread because it's made with Xanthan Gum which he purports is made using corn which he is also allergice/sensitive to. Too Bad! But we figure, you don't have to be gluten free to enjoy gluten free bread and we are all willing to give the bread a try to see if we like it.
They also generously sent us coupons, a magnet and some Rudi's sticky notes. Those always come in handy! Thanks Rudi's for picking us to try your bread!
Stay Tuned for part 2 .....after the sandwichs!
BTW, for those of you who are gluten free and want to check out Rudi's are some links

Rudi's is also taking part in a project called spread the bread. It is in conjunction with NFCA's Continuing Medical Education program, a free online certified training tool that educates PCPs about Celiac disease. To support Rudi's Project you can go to Rudi's website and FB pages, download $1 coupons and donate $1 to NFCA. This project is ongoing through February.
Celiac is not a fun disease to deal with and helping physicians to understand, diagnose and manage the disease is a great thing!!!!
PS - I am not getting paid for this. Yes, we got the box, Yes, we are willing to try Rudi's bread and give our honest opinion but there is no money being exchanged here!
We are in search of a gluten free bread that tastes good, is affordable, and that hubby can eat so he, too, can eat PB&Js again!
