Adventures in Gluten Free Living: A Mouthful of Ick

As I mentioned previously, gluten-free foods are sometimes a shot in the dark - you just don't know if it will be a hit or not!! :)

Our local HyVee has been a great source for gluten-free foods, but for the last 2.5 weeks has been out of my favorite product: Udi's bread.

If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it!!!!! Here is a link to their website.

Supposedly, they ran out of supply and that's why my grocery store can't get it in. In the meantime, my hubs and I have been buying different gluten free bread mixes that you have to prepare.

The ones we've tried so far have been lacking - one had a very strong taste like a rye (which I don't like but thankfully the hubs does), another two were just a little too spongy for my liking but at least the flavor was edible. Last night, we tried yet another mix, and one mouthful in we were both gagging and spitting it back out!

The only way I can describe it is like biffing it in a sandbox and getting a mouth full of dirty sand. Seriously.

I don't list the brands here because I don't like calling companies out unless I LIKE their products, but I will say that I wish there were more companies out there like Udi's that made EDIBLE gluten free products!

Ick. Ick. Ick. I still can't get that gritty texture and taste out of my mouth...


  1. Wow! A fellow gluten-free pal! I'm allergic to wheat & dairy for 11+ years now. My diet is, well, fun - NOT. I'm checking some of those links out for sure.

  2. Thanks for sharing! :) Yep, being gluten free has been quite the adventure already. At least I found Udi's bread and other products to help me keep going!!! ;) lol.
