Best Place For Udi Bread
0

6 posts in this topic

I have eaten at Jason's Deli lots of times and love their Udi bread deli sandwiches. The bread is so totally different than the stuff you buy at WF. It is bigger, heavier with a wonderful flavor and texture. It is alot like the old fashioned rye bread I ate as a kid.

When I was there over the weekend for my favorite pastrami sandwich, I happened to ask if they sell the breads. They do! The loaf is 30 ounces, whole grain, gluten free, dairy free, soy free and nut free. It is Kosher and parve. It is made special for Jason's and you cannot purchase it from a store. The pieces are huge. They are about 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches. I would say the loaf is double that of the regular Udi bread and the pieces are thick and substantial. I've tried it toasted and plain and both ways are fantastic. Granted, it is more expensive than the 5.00 little wimpy loaf -it is 11.99, but it is the closest thing to bread heaven. I keep it in the freezer and take out the pieces when I want. I won't ever buy the original Udi bread again. I know this is expensive, but it is so delicious.

Too bad that Udi makes this wonderful product only for Jason's. They could corner the market if they had it for sale everywhere. This really is delicious. The slices are uniform, thick and definitely have earned my vote. Yes, 11.99 is alot of money, but darn it, I'm worth it! Try it and you won't ever buy the regular Udi bread.

Buy the way, you can also buy the gluten free deli meat for 8.99 per pound! There is nothing like a hot pastrami sandwich with hot mustard, dill pickle and chips. :wub:

Wow, thanks for sharing that! I had no idea the slices were bigger. I have been meaning to try eating at Jason's Deli but I avoided it because the thought of paying so much for a tiny little sandwhich I can make myself was depressing. I figured the slices were the same size as the store bought Udi's. Now I will have to check out Jason's Deli!

We have zero delis around here (we aren't known for them on the prairies) but man, that sounds delicious! I would be happy to pay $11.99 for bread like that. When I first tried Udi's bread I was quite desperate and liked it, having just been diagnosed, but now it's just meh to me - basically just a vehicle for my toppings. :huh: Cannot wait until our heat wave is over so I can bake some serious bread. :)

So glad you were successful in finding such a treat!

Wow! I live across the street from a Jason's Deli and I've never tried eating there because I figure there is too much gluten in there for it to be safe for me. But maybe I can buy a loaf of bread from them! Cool! Thanks for that tip!

Well I chickened out. We tried to go there about 4 PM yesterday thinking maybe it would not be too busy that early. There was a line out the door however and they had onyl one person on register that looked like she didn't know what she was doing (looked like she was new/being trained). When a guy rushed up front, saw the line, looked frazzled and then ran back to the kitchen yelling that they needed more help up front I decided it was not a good time to wait and see how safe their gluten-free sandwiches are. I felt like a wimp asking my husband to leave but he understood and took me to the grocery store instead. I already had some Rudi's bread at home so we just went and bought lunch meat and veggeis and made out own sandwiches at home. I will still try Jason's Deli sometime however if I can find a day/time to go when they are not super busy. For those that have been there, is this place always super busy like that? I don't mind a small line but the employees looked really stressed out too. It stressed me out too much to want to ask questions about gluten-free bread.

Well, since I'm across the street, I'll answer you. ;)

There are down times, like 2 to 4 when most have already had lunch.

But if there is an event in town...it will be busy all day.

I wish you would of bought a BIG loaf of Udi's bread for your homemade sandwiches! ;)

But I understand completely. I get worried if people are being tained or if the place is rushed too. Please post when you do try Jason's Deli. I know you are super-sensitive and I hope you do alright there.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
