By now the word is out that Udi’s Gluten Free makes some pretty amazing products. Their bread has brought hope back into the lives of many people following the gluten-free diet. Over the past year Udi’s products have been showing up on the grocery stores across the United States and have recently become available online. The newest product that we have tried from Udi’s is their Cinnamon Rolls.
I was able to find these for $6.49 at my local Whole Foods store. They just started carrying Udi’s products within the past month. They are now carrying the bread, bagels and cinnamon rolls, which is making it really hard for me to stay out of the store!
The cinnamon rolls are not only gluten-free, but soy-free, dairy-free and nut-free as well. The rolls are pretty impressive in size, but not overwhelmingly high in calories (under 300 per roll). The rolls can be kept in the freezer, refrigerator or on the counter if you intend on consuming them within a day or 2. We chose to keep ours in the refrigerator. To prepare the muffins, I simply placed one in the microwave from the refrigerator for 10 – 15 seconds to gently warm and then spread a little of the icing on top. I placed the roll back into the microwave for another 10 seconds to allow the icing to get warm & melty.
The cinnamon rolls were even better than I expected! The rolls were soft & had the texture of the cinnamon rolls I remember before going gluten-free. Jon quickly claimed the remaining cinnamon rolls after he sampled the roll. The cinnamon inside the roll was just right and the icing added the perfect finishing touch.
The only other pre-made cinnamon roll that we have sampled that has come close to these were Everybody Eats cinnamon sticky buns. If you asked me which was better, I think they would be darn close and without having them side by side, there is no way I could tell. Have you tried Udi’s cinnamon rolls yet?
