:lol::lol::lol: Oops, you didn't get that memo?

I don't eat a lot a bread, but I have found that Kinnikinnick Foods make the best loaf bread and english muffins. You can find them at www.kinnikinnick.com

Wow, this stuff if FOUL. Why didn't you guys warn me before I went out and bought this stuff?! :lol:

YUCK!

If you microwave it you might be able to choke it down. My DS actually likes the stuff. I vote for the Kinnikinnick myself.

:lol: :lol: :lol: It's not the best, I agree. But my son likes it, and eats it every day. So I buy it by the case from Amazon. I think it's actually really good for grilled sandwiches. I think Kinnikinnick is the best pre-made bread.

Just think of it as a rite of initiation. Now you are one of us. :lol:

You may want to go to that thread where people list wretched gluten-free products. I think the worst is Holgrain rice crackers. At least the animals ate the EnerG bread when I put it out. The crackers (which have the consistency and taste of styrofoam) just sat there for weeks. Animals have some standards, I guess. Those crackers didn't even biodegrade. I just buried them under the mulch. Next spring I'll look and see if they are still there in their pristine glory ...

:D:D:D When you do be sure to take a picture. I have no doubt they will be sitting there in all their glory. I tried those once and would rather have eaten the box they came in, at least that would have tasted a bit better.

I have to agree that stuff is awful. Another good one is the whole foods brand sandwich bread. Haven't actually tried making a sandwich with it but it makes pretty good toast. First time I tried it I didn't like it but it grows on you. I actually kind of look forward to having toast now.

what i did with mine is made it into a turkey meatball dish. actually turned out really good, after soaking the bread in milk. i've got the rest of the loaf freezing until i find another good recipe to use it in.

My aunt actually bought me a loaf of EnerG bread when I went to visit her. I opened it up and took one bite - just couldn't get any more down. My aunt commented that the bread smelled awful and was making her sick. I took it outside and crumbled it up for the birds. They wouldn't even eat it. :D

Yep, not the best bread. Before I found the grainless baker, it was the bread I tolerated....I would toast it which would disguise some of the foul strange taste.

Now I use the grainless baker sandwich bread.

Call me crazy but I don't mind the Tapioca Lite Loaf. Of course, like all of them, I toast it to make it more palletable. My son takes it in school lunches and likes it as well as any - it holds up anyway.

Haha.. I saw the name of this post and I had to check it out..and when I read 'wow this stuff is FOUL' I could not help but laugh. I was SOO excited to try my first gluten free bread (I must have been high on some left over gluten in my system) and that is what I bought. Needless to say, I thought it 'wasn't that bad...maybe' but Im pretty sure I was trying to think reallly positive. I tried it a second time, and I couldnt keep it down! Very disappointing...I have however discovered some glutino english muffins that I find to be soo delicious! They are soft and squishy and taste actually good when toasted! Im still on a search for excellent bread though...

I hate that bread too. But don't throw it out. You can use it as breadcrumbs or cubes to stuff the holiday turkey with. It works well for that.
