Review: Udi’s Gluten-Free Seeded Whole Grain Dinner Rolls

It is always a pleasure to sample new products from Udi’s Gluten-Free, as they have a great track record for producing quality gluten-free products. The newest product I sampled from Udi’s is the Seeded Whole Grain Dinner Roll

In addition to being free of gluten, the rolls are also free of soy and nuts.  I was really excited to give these rolls a try!  I love to eat big dinner salads and what better to pair with my salad than a crusty warm dinner roll?

These rolls are every bit as good as they look!  The outside of the roll is crusty/crunchy and the inside is warm & chewy, just like a dinner roll should be!  The rolls come frozen and can be heated up quickly in the oven one at a time or all at once.  There are 8 rolls in each package.  If seeded rolls are not your thing, Udi’s offers a Classic version as well.

    I love their dinner rolls. They are flaky just like a “regular” roll.

    They are good, but 7.99 for 8 rolls is a bit to pricey
