Sean and Tyty and I tore in to a box that was sitting on our front porch waiting for us when we got home from an adventure out in the big, big world.
And boy, oh boys were we excited.
Isn't it the very sweetest when you stumble over something yummy, I mean after you catch yourself and steady yourself and stop yourself from yelling at the littlest of people for leaving their toys out, ya know?
Well, waiting for us inside that corrugated box was another box filled to the brim with crunchy goodness-- four bags of crunchy goodness to be exact. Udi's Gluten Free Foods, the number one gluten free baked goods brand sent us a bag of each of their four granola varieties which are now carried in over one-hundred and fifty Wal-Mart stores across our beautiful country, you know what that means right guys, that means there's a pretty darn good chance you can get them someplace close to you.
So, here's the thing guys. I don't actually need or shop gluten free. Lucky me, right? But I do have friends who do have allergies to gluten and I always thought, "my goodness that must be hard"-- but, really I had no idea just how hard.
Gluten is found in so many things. Like bread, oh geesh what would I do without bread for a sand which or two for a sweet summer picnic? Well Udi's revolutionized the whole concept of gluten-free with the introduction of the first gluten-free bread that tastes and looks like the "real" stuff. With all natural ingredients and very few preservatives why would I not fall madly and deeply in love with their yumminess, especially if it's all so good you truly wonder if it's really gluten free. And, if the granola yumminess that we devoured is any indication, well...
oh, my yum.
If you'd like you can use Udi's store locator to find a place to grab some of the yumminess near you, here it is guys:
Or you know we could plan a road trip to Denver to pick up a loaf of bread or two. And, also, if we could munch on Udi's granola the whole way well, that would make for just a whole heap of gluten free sweetness.
'Cause that could be fun, you know, you me and Udi's in a car... on the road... really, I think it would.
My fave so far... Udi's Au Naturel Granola
Have you tried Udi's? And also, am I the last person on earth to try some? What's your fave?
And... happy summer solstice too.
