Product: Udi’s Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins – $6.99+
Muffins are a delectable treat, good for breakfast, a snack, or side at dinner, or even dessert. The only gluten-free variety that I can find, anywhere, just happen to come from Udi’s.
No surprise there, right?
The blueberry muffins have a great distinction in this blog. While they were, officially, the first in the lineup of muffins I sampled from Udi’s (thanks to my friend Jenn!), they are the last to get blogged about. Why? Well, I hadn’t started this blog when Jenn first gave me these. But, now it’s time to come full circle and give these muffins their day in the spotlight.
First of all…let me say this: Udi’s = DELICIOUS!
I haven’t run across a product of theirs yet that I haven’t liked. That’s saying something as I am nearing the end of their product line-up just in time for them to introduce their new products this year. My timing is perfect. Now, here’s to hoping the market around here picks up on these products quickly. It’s already a challenge trying to locate gluten-free goodies in my neck of the woods.
But…back to blueberry muffins. Because we all love blueberry muffins.
To me, muffins should be moist, packed with flavor, and at the right level of sweetness without becoming a cupcake. There is a very fine line between muffins and cupcakes sometimes. But, Udi’s finds the right balance of all of these proponents in these fantastic muffins. I heated mine up in the microwave for 30 seconds before diving in. What I noshed on was a soft, moist, spongy muffin, completely packed with blueberries, dusted with a light coating of sugar. It was so good, that I hoovered the thing. I mean, if muffins were heaven, then I was floating on cloud nine.
I had never tasted anything as amazing as the Udi’s Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins. It had incredible texture. The sponginess meant the muffin would bounce back as I cut into it with a fork. The perfect level of moistness…none I ever got in any muffin, homemade or packaged, that had gluten in it. This gluten-free treat hit the bulls-eye for me where muffins are involved. And Udi’s doesn’t skimp on flavor either. These muffins (you get four in a pack) are loaded with blueberries. A lot of times, you are lucky to see a few blueberries in a muffin, but not these. You get a full house, without being overwhelmed by berries. When they say blueberry muffins, they aren’t hiding a couple within each muffin. You get blasted with blueberry in each bite.
Despite the high praise I gave the Double Chocolate Muffins and the Lemon Streusel Muffins…Udi’s wins with the Blueberry Muffins. They are my favorite of the trio! Perfect for any time of the day too.
Whether you need to eat gluten-free or not, there is a wide variety of amazing products out there. I encourage everyone to give something gluten-free a try. And if you must start somewhere…start with Udi’s Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins. It will be love at first bite…trust me.
