My Pantry: Udi's Classic Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns

I don't mind eating bun-less burgers, but I occasionally miss a juicy burger on a fluffy hamburger bun. My local grocery store now has a gluten-free section filled with the staples I need. Not only am I ecstatic to be able to buy gluten-free groceries without driving 30 minutes, but they carry Udi's Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns! I immediately bought a pack once I saw them in the frozen aisle. I've been wanting to try Udi's GF Hamburger Buns since I heard they were available earlier this year, but have been unable to find them...until now. Like other gluten-free products, they are more expensive than non-gluten-free products. The shelf price for a 4-pack of these buns is $4.39 at my local grocery store.

My parents and one of my sisters visited my husband and I a few weekends ago. Everyone is gluten-free, except my husband, so it was ironic that he was now the one eating a bun-less meal as we enjoyed gluten-free buns. My sister and I had the biggest smiles on our face as we took the first bite into a burger with a (GF) bun! We were elated!

We all thought the buns (toasted in butter, of course) were great, but no one could finish the entire bun. The flavor was great and the texture wasn't too bad, but it was dense and just too much bun. (Too much? I had a hard time accepting this myself, but it's true). In the future, I'll only eat half a bun, but I'm won't complain because I can now enjoy a burger with a GF bun!

I know you tweeted us yesterday, but I also wanted to comment on your blog post with a big "thank you" for trying and writing about our gluten free buns! I'm glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed them, even if they were a bit too much bun for you. I hope you get a chance to try some of our other products too!
