Review: Udi's Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Bagels

I finally got my paws on some of the highly talked about & sought after cinnamon raisin bagels made by Udi’s.  I have been stalking every local store that would carry them for the past month and I finally found one that carries them, but they were sold out!  Raisin Rack was kind enough to put my name on a package of bagels when the next order came and I picked them up this past weekend.

The cinnamon raisin bagels are just one of the new products added to Udi’s Gluten-Free product line.  The other new items include cinnamon raisin bread, whole grain bagels and if you shop for your Udi’s products at Kroger, oatmeal raisin or chocolate chip cookies.

I love the combination of cinnamon and raisins, so it only makes sense that I am going to love cinnamon raisin bagels.  I remember eating cinnamon raisin bagels from Panera before I started the gluten-free diet.  Man, I have missed those!  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to try the bagels at room temperature or toasted.  I love the plain version of Udi’s Gluten-Free Bagels untoasted as a base for sandwiches.  I opted to toast the cinnamon raisin bagel and was not disappointed.

I spread a little bit of apricot preserves over the top and sat down to enjoy my new-found love.  These bagels were just as good, if not better, than I had imagined.  There were plenty of raisins throughout the bagel with a touch of cinnamon taste in the background.  I would say that they could maybe use a little more cinnamon, but I tend to like more than most people do, so I can always add more at home.  Udi’s has another hit with these bagels!

Have you had a chance to try Udi’s Cinnamon Raisin Bagels?  What is your favorite Udi’s product?  Now I need to get my hands on the whole grain bagels and cinnamon raisin bread!

    Thanks, Kim. Just finished my peanut butter and banana sandwich on Udi’s bread. You were the one who clued me in! Can’t wait to try these bagels.

  2. Tiffany Janes says:

    I too LOVED Panera’s Cinna-Crunch bagel! It’s the only type of bagel I enjoyed when I ate gluten. I am looking forward to trying Udi’s version, but I rarely find anything cinnamon flavored that has enough cinnamon for me 😉

    A question for Kimberly and Tiffany – since you review different brands, I was wondering if you have ever tried or reviewed products from Katz Gluten Free? Their Challah rolls are soft and tasty, I’m going to try their Challa Bread next. And their Cinnamon Rugelech is absolutely wonderful. You wouln’t know it was GF. What is your opinion of Katz products?

  4. Tiffany Janes says:

    Toni – Both Kim and I have reviewed several great items from Katz Gluten Free. My lastest post about the company can be found here ( I love using the large Challah rolls for burger buns and the small ones for dinner rolls. I’m not into rugelech, but did try all three of the options from Katz and loved the cinnamon version best of all.

      Thank you both, Tiffany and Kim, for your input on Katz. I am new to this website and new to meeting the chalanges of cooking GF. But I did order the sample pack from Katz. I am working hard at getting Katz in stores near me so I can enjoy it more readily. Thank you both for keeping us all informed of products we need.
