The Bad: I wanted to love Chick fil a for making a gluten free bun but they hyped it too much. They talked about how they worked so long and so hard with a bakery to get it just right. The owner of the bakery was even gluten free. I still doubted because if you’ve ever eaten gluten free bread, you know it sucks. So last week I took the plunge and gave that bun a try. Now I wish I had not. The bun comes in an individual plastic wrapper and you make the sandwich yourself. That made me nervous as I wondered how long they had it hanging around. While I have to say it wasn’t disgusting, to say it was a good bun, was a long stretch. Very long. If you like full wheat grain bread you would like it better. It kind of has a dirt texture and basically tasted like a stale whole grain wheat bun. I wouldn’t order again.
The Ugly: Canyon Bakery bread. Celiac site said oh it’s great. Hmmmm NO. If you like nasty, spongy, weird tasting bread it was delish for only $6 a loaf. I looked and they are one of the sponsors of the celiac website. That explains a lot.
The Good: If you’re gluten free you’re likely like me and have given up on bread. A good one haven’t found it’s way to me in the past. However, I found one this week that I would buy again and recommend. Not only is the bread good, but the name and descriptions crack me up. It’s called HAPPY CAMPER BREAD. I ordered the Classy Slice and it was good. It actually made my to date, favorite grilled cheese. I also tried the Buckwheat molasses and it made great toast. In fact it’s rare to find a GF bread that will actually toast but it does. Next week I’ll be trying to Hemp Hemp Horray. Crazy name but I think it will be good. It’s pricey but so is any gluten free bread and this is one you can eat.
Have a blessed day.
