Review: Udi’s Gluten Free Hotdog Buns

October 25, 2012

Our conversation earlier in the grocery store earlier this week:

John: “Look babe, they have Udi’s gluten free hot dog buns! Oh my gosh, do you know how long it’s been since I’ve had a hotdog with real bun? Ten years! TEN YEARS! We’re having hotdogs for lunch on Saturday!”

Okay, I guess that wasn’t as much of a conversation as I remembered. But I think I’ve made my point (and paid John back for all of the times he’s quoted me on Facebook). John was super, super excited about Udi’s hot dog buns.

We went back to the store on Friday to do our grocery shopping for the weekend and the hotdog meal was quickly moved up the schedule to “let’s eat is at soon as we get home!” Okay =)

Here’s a picture of John’s second gluten free hotdog.

As you can see, Udi’s got the color and texture of the crust just right. The texture of the bread is spot-on too. It has all of those tiny little holes just like manufactured wheat-flour breads. Unfortunately, the only thing that you can think of once you take a bite is, “Oh my, this is dry!”

The buns come 6 to a package and we paid $5.99 for them at a Krogers in Kentucky. This is probably less expensive than a meal out, but it’s hard to pay $1 per bun. So hard, that I couldn’t make myself buy a bag of Udi’s bagels on the same shopping trip. John did suggest that we should cut the buns in half next time so that we could have 12 hotdogs, and that’s a good option to make this more practical from a budget standpoint. There was a lot of bread around each weiner.

Overall, it was lovely to have a hotdog with a “real” bun, but I don’t see myself searching this out like I do some of the other gluten free products that we love.

P.S. Don’t miss the recipe for gluten free mac & cheese.
