Can Gluten Free Foods Be Tasty?

I'm really not at all sure why I have this mental impression of gluten free foods as being dry and tasteless, but I am happy to have been proven wrong by some Udi's gluten free goodies that I tried out recently.  We had previously tasted the Snickerdoodle Cookies and really enjoyed them so we were all happy to have some more to share.  The big star though was the package of Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites – they were absolutely scrumptious, moist and very fudgy.  Yum!

The brownie bites were the perfect size snack for the kids and they especially loved the chocolate chips inside.  We gave some to the kids as a reward for doing extra chores and one of my girls actually cried when they were gone and she couldn't “do any more chores”.  The whole family gave those two thumbs up!

We also got to try two new Udi's products – Chocolate Chia Muffin Tops and Blueberry Oat Muffin Tops.  These were also very yummy and hubby and I decided to keep these to ourselves.  He claimed the blueberry ones and the chocolate ones had my name all over them!

In addition to being gluten free, the muffin tops are also soy free, dairy free and nut free.  The one thing they are NOT free of is taste!  The Chocolate Chia variety contain 6 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein and 150 calories in each muffin top.  They're very filling and make for a terrific breakfast or afternoon snack and they are convenient to eat on the run since they're individually packaged.

  1. Those products look AWESOME! I’d really love to try the brownie bites — maybe I would also “do some chores”.

  2. There are plenty of chores left Jean! Come on over when you’re ready 😉
