Kinnikinnick Has New Products That Look Tasty.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter brought me a Knickinick bread tonight - gluten free, yeast free. I have never tasted a yeast free bread that was worth the price of the wrapper. This one is quite good - actually tastes like bread. It is not too heavy either as so many of the gluten-free products are. I ate it with just a little margerine (soy). I will try toast in the morning, Imagine - me having toast for breakfast! Claire

Kinnikinnick success story! i found their sandwich bread at this one store in town. i'd been hauling pizza crusts home from an hour and a half away because i couldn't find them anywhere else. so i asked them if they would start to carry the pizza crusts. well, ladies and gentlemen, no more than 3 months later, we have pizza crusts, 3 flavors of donuts, white bread, brown bread, sunflower flax bread, multigrain rice bread, hamburger buns (which make a fine chili dog! although a little on the sweet side), tapioca rice bagels, new york rice bagels, choc chip muffins, blueberry muffins, and cinnamon rolls.

dang it, now i'm hungry again! :P

as far as product reviews, all their bread stuff tends to be a tad sweet for me, but i'm a huge fan of the donuts and the cinnamon rolls. and you can't beat arriving home tired and hungry and popping a pizza in the oven.

I agree. Kinnickinnick by far is way ahead of other makers of gluten-free breads, muffins, etc. Their english muffins in particular are so nice a fluffy I can't believe that they are gluten free! They rock!

p.s. Hurray, this is post 1000 for me!!

Hugs.

LOL! :lol:

I guess that's what I get for posting so late!!! (reminds me of our "You know your a Celiac when" list: remember the "You can say Kinnikinnick 10 times quickly without messing up"? (something like that!) :P

Wish I could go to sleep but my tummy just won't let me, it is fully active tonight, wearing out the carpet from the computer to the loo!

Hugs.

Not to get off the subject, but what's the origin of the word "loo." I know what room it refers to. Is Loo short for something else? Since it's British in origin it's not used much in states, if at all, and I was just wondering about how it got it's name.

P.S. My stuff on postcards went out to you this week.

Hi, my name is Nancy, and I'm an information junkie (and and insomniac). So yea... I looked the origin of the word Loo up for you. :lol: Looks like there are a few interesting theories. The most popular, it seems, is that it came down over the years from a French phrase - gardez l'eau - which means "watch out for the water"

I was in Italy last year (before I was diagnosed). The public toilets are actually holes in the ground that you have to "squat over". Maybe "loo" is the Brittish pronunciation of "low".

Their products are wonderful!! I wanted the whole foods near me to carry them so I emailed the conact for the Mpls store and she said she has been working on it. And she wanted to know what products I wanted in the store! So, if your store does not carry them ask and you should get them!!!

lol! that is how i learned to spell it too. it took me forever to find the page!

as for favorite Kinnikinnick bread, i think i'd go with the italian white bread. i can't remember the exact wording but there's italian in there somewhere. not really sure why, though, now that i think about it. :) yesterday i saw some more exotic ones but i haven't tried them yet.

I noticed that I spelled it wrong! I guess everyone here would know what I meant. Spelling is one thing - pronunication is another. I haven't heard two people say it the same way. I imagine it is an Indian word,

We have one local store selling some of their products and our newest store 'The Natural Marketplace' is going to be adding it soon.

As I can't handle yeast, a lot of their products are not for me. Finding a yeast free bread that looks and tastes and has the texture of bread is indeed a real find. It doesn't have a lot of flavor but spreads and fillings can take care of that. It is the texture of bread that I have missed - for 15 years now - so this a treat. Claire

has anyone tried any of their breads that have fiber in them- like the brown sandwich bread or multigrain rice bread (or any others) i am looking for a bread or muffin that is edible and has some fiber in it, and most of the gluten-free breads i have seen have < 1 gram! also, if anyone knows any stores in nyc that sells their stuff, do share! (trying to avoid ordering online...) Thanks!
