We’ve tried 5 out of the ten on the list & Kinnikinnick is by far the best yet!
Everyone should put pressure on Udis to offer to the public what they sell to the restaurant industry. I had a hamburger bun at a local eatery the other day that I had to ask whether or not I received a gluten free bun because it was so good. I asked the manager which brand he used and he said Udis! I have eaten Udis buns for years but this was 100 times better than the ones I get at the supermarket, so I emailed Udis and they responded saying that the hamburger and hotdog buns they make for restaurants are made differently than the one’s sold in the store. I asked them why and they have yet to respond. If you have never had their “food service” version you would never believe how good they are.
PS My local Unos Chicago Grill offers Udis buns but they are the same ones I can get, so apparently they just stock up on a few bags from the local supermarket.
The difference may be that the food service version are probably never meant to be frozen, where the Udi’s for us are mostly offered frozen.
PureKnead from Roswell GA makes the best bread products we have had! Although we buy it frozen and keep is frozen, it is soft and holds up well. Tastes great. If you can find them, try them. They don’t seem to be a big company with a big territory, but I would love to see them grow. http://www.pureknead.com/
Canyon Bakehouse gluten free bread & buns are amazing. Soft and delicious, not ultra thin or muck like some. I used to just skip bread, now I enjoy it again. They don’t yet offer hot dog buns, however they offer incredible hamburger buns and focaccia bread. Enjoy!
They have hotdog buns (frozen) but for some reason they aren’t as good. We find them in Northern Virginia at Safe-way and their website has a supermarket locator.
Udi’s buns are dry and break apart, but if you put a little water on the inside and microwave for 20 seconds, they become moist and are pretty good.
I have found Trader Joes’s gluten free bakery products to besome of the best. Also, samisbakery.com. They ship via Fedex from Tampa, FL.
French Meadow Bakery gluten-free hamburger buns are what you eat at Red Robin, and they are awesome. I wish I could find them at the grocery store.
The gluten free chef had a hamburger bun that’s amazing ! I get then at whole foods in Vancouver BC the buns are Canadian made but by far the best bun I have ever had !!
