Like many people, the concept of dairy-free used to be quite simplified in my head; it meant no milk, butter, ice cream, or cheese. But dairy-free living extends far beyond these simplified foods. Milk ingredients are used in so many everyday processed foods, from granola bars to packaged meats, and yes, even to bread.
As shared in my prior and ongoing review of Rudi’s Organic Bread, Rudi’s bakery products are dairy-free. And not only do they make a plethora of organic loaves, they also churn out other bread products in the shapes of rolls, English muffins, tortillas, and even soft pretzels!!
Tasting Notes for Rudi’s Organic Bakery Rolls and More
I haven’t sampled the full line-up – believe me, it’s big – but I have dabbled in tastings of various products and thus far, not a one has disappointed.
When given the opportunity, I chose to taste-test two types of Rudi’s English Muffins. My first choice was the Spelt English Muffins (I simply love spelt). As expected, we really enjoyed these. They had whole grain flavor with a texture that was just fluffy enough to qualify as an English muffin.
I also had the opportunity to trial Rudi’s Spelt Tortillas. They were of course heartier and a tad less flexible than regular flour tortillas. But I still managed to wrap up some Thai Peanut Wraps for lunch without making a mess. And they sliced beautifully too. I still love making my own spelt tortillas, but these were pretty excellent, and of course perfectly round, which my homemade versions never seem to be. If in a pinch, I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase these.
Specialty summer sandwiches, hamburgers and brats get a gourmet upgrade with the nice selection or Rudi’s Organic Bakery rolls. For my niece’s hamburger obsession, we occasionally pick up Rudi’s 100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns. If she was going to insist on burgers, then she was definitely going to eat whole grain! But she never argued; she loved them. The picture below is of their Pretzel buns, which have sadly been discontinued.
But Rudi’s Soft Pretzels are still around in two varieties that bake up in less than 5 minutes! Seriously, from freezer, to oven, to mustard dip, to mouth, in minutes.
Rudi’s Organic Bakery Soft Pretzels really are just like the ones you buy from the vendor! They even come with the cool salt sprinkles, but without the junk ingredients. The flavor and texture experience of the Original was just as I remembered. The MultiGrain offers a similar pretzel experience, but isn’t quite as puffy (slightly denser) and has a nutty, whole grain taste. We loved them both and think they would be so much fun for a sports party. Tasty, fast, fun, nostalgic, and high quality!
