#FollowFriday - Goodbye Gluten Bread

I couldn't wait to share this week's Friday Follow. When I was contacted to try Goodbye Gluten bread, I had no idea I was about to get my mind and taste buds blown away. Another bread? Sure, OK, whatevs.... BUT NO! This gluten free bread is in a ballpark all its own.  I've never had a gluten free bread soooo soft and delicious right out of the bag. It's life changing.

The new gluten free kid on the block, Goodbye Gluten is starting to pop up on store shelves across the Midwest, but it's still hard to find. I have to admit, this was another product review that went to the wayside. After my sample supply ran out, it took me months to finally find a store that carried them....31 miles away! 

The breads are available in key retailers such as Giant Eagle, Jewel-Osco, Cub Foods, Roundy’s, Kowalski’s, Lunds & Byerly's, Super One and Hornbachers across the Midwest in the first phase of the Goodbye Gluten brand launch, but not all of those stores' locations are carrying them just yet.

But let's talk about the bread! Goodbye Gluten currently offers two products: gluten free white bread and gluten free multi-grain bread. It's made from the usual gluten free suspects such as white rice flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, etc. There is cornstarch, eggs, and soy for those avoiding those allergens. 

I could not get over how soft and fluffy this bread was. It's squishy like gluten bread. Over the years gluten free bread has evolved so much that it's no longer crumbly, but eating it fresh out of the bag is still a challenge. Only a few can do it and Goodbye Gluten is one of them. The slices are a decent size as well, comparable to "real" bread.

How does it taste? Great! I find it works wonderfully for deli sandwiches. I was able to put together a sandwich at home in the morning and it held together until lunch. 

Did I mention they are Gluten Free Certified? Because they are. 

Hopefully a nationwide roll-out will happen soon. In the meantime, be sure to check out their website and like them on Facebook
