A friend of Go Dairy Free, Amy B., trialed one variety of Katz Gluten Free Rolls, and has the following quick review to share.
I love bread, but I rarely have it because I am way too lazy to make gluten free bread from scratch. I just suck it up and eat roasted potatoes, or I compensate by eating way too many pretzels. So I was eager to trial Katz Gluten Free Large Challah Rolls.
Ah, yes, the proverbial challah roll. Large and in charge it slightly resembles a slightly browned UFO. I had this at Sunday dinner at 3:00 in the afternoon. If you are Italian you know that Sunday lunch is called dinner, and it’s always filled with bread slathered with butter and baked in the oven.
My first impression of Katz Gluten Free Rolls was it actually tastes like bread with no funky aftertaste! My pet peeve is the first impression fades away and you are left with a bad aftertaste of funky flours and weird additives (date paste – I’ve tasted it!!!!!). The roll was a little on the chewy side which I have noticed is a common thread among gluten-free, dairy-free breads. I was able to get past this since the flavor was excellent and the outside was just crusty enough to make it seem like I was eating a nice big deli roll. The other good thing was the size- it is about the size of a small kaiser roll – perfect for sandwiches.
Beyond a few varieties of challah, Katz Gluten Free rolls include hot dog and hamburger buns. Doesn’t this look good?
