Isn’t that a pretty hamburger bun?
And yes, it’s as soft and moist as you might be imaging it to be.
While I couldn’t eat any of the buns from the complimentary package I recently received from Canyon Bakehouse for this review, I know how moist and fluffy they are because I was able to enjoy them for a short period of time before I discovered my corn allergy last fall.
My mother-in-law made me promise to share her opinion with you too (this blogging business really is a family affair for us, LOL!):
“The Canyon Bakehouse Buns are the closest thing to real bread I’ve had since going gluten-free.”
Well there you have it folks, this is a “real” hamburger bun and quite frankly, I think they are better than Udi’s new gluten free hamburger buns (I know, *gasp*). After much anticipation for Udi’s gluten free hot dog and hamburger buns (seriously, I had been anxiously waiting for those for over a year!), I sneaked a taste when I was at the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in May (this is how I discovered my allergic reaction to corn is severe sinus congestion). While I think the Udi’s GF hamburger buns are good, they are a bit on the dry side (and not very soft) right out of the package, but a little nuke in the microwave helped to correct that issue (assuming you have access to a microwave and aren’t camping in the middle of the woods somewhere).
The Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free Hamburger Buns however, are perfect right out of the bag (although I liked toasting them on the grill for a wee bit, but I used to do that with my glutonium-filled buns too).
For another opinion, check out this post over at Foodista: Udi’s vs. Canyon Bakehouse: Hamburger Bun Showdown.
If I’m not mistaken, I was one of the first bloggers to review Canyon Bakehouse back in early 2010 (you can read my review here), and I just heard through the grapevine that they will be releasing a gluten free caraway bread (a.k.a. “mock rye”) sometime in 2011…game on for all you Gluten Free Reuben lovers out there!
