My New Favorite Gluten-Free Store-Bought Bread!

Recently I went to the Gluten-free expo in Sandy, Utah.

There were so many gluten-free items at the expo that I would like to feature.

First–I want to mention my new favorite bread!

The bread is Mrs. Hewitt’s Bread.

It tastes just like I remember bread tasting.

It doesn’t crumble, it doesn’t taste like cardboard.

I tested it out with a grilled cheese sandwich and it was amazing!

There was a wide variety of gluten free breads Mrs. Hewitt’s offered but I was happy with the Homestyle White Bread.

Let me know if you try this bread…it has opened the doors to many more recipes for me!

Enjoy!

In our home, we use this McCormicks Gluten-free Taco Seasoning quite often. So it just makes sense to have it on hand.

When new gluten-free items come out, it’s exciting!

Even more, when these items are tasty and delicious, it’s even more exciting.

Today I wanted to share with you 3 gluten-free foods that have come out in the last year and I enjoy them all.

Disclosure: this blog contains affiliate links. This means that I get commission from any link you click on…but of course it’s at no cost to you!

First up are: Peanut Butter Chex. The price is only $10.59 for a 2-pack on Amazon. You will love the flavoring of this particular chex cereal, and just think how easy muddy buddies will be to make with peanut butter chex cereal!

Next, I have to share gluten-free double stuff oreos. I mean, the regular oreos are great too, but the double-stuff are right on point! Everyone agrees, they perfected the gluten-free oreos to taste just like the regular oreos.

You can find these oreos on Amazon for $26.48 for a 3-pack. Or most grocery stores now carry these delicious cookies too. They are always in white packaging so they stand out amongst the regular oreos.

And last but not least, these Almond Mission Tortillas. I found these through Kroger stores at the price of $5.49. These tortillas can help make it possible to make tasty gluten free burritos and such.

Have you discovered any more tasty gluten-free items? I am always on the lookout and hope to continue posting about new gluten-free products.
