What’s New with Udi’s?

February 5th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill


If you eat gluten-free, you might think there aren't a lot of choices for bread out there. A few years ago, I discovered Udi's products and pretty much haven't gone back since.

My family sampled Udi's new gluten free buns and Udi's new gluten free Ancient Grain Breads and they were a hit!  My daughter enthusiastically announced "I love Udi's Hamburger Buns" at the dinner table; I especially liked them toasted on the grill.  I was impressed by how (more…)
