Rudi's Organics Review and WINNERS!

About a month or so ago, I received a box full of goodies from Rudi's Organics.


I was very excited. It was like Bastille Day here at Chez Happy Runner!

Or maybe it was more like Halloween. Only I didn't have to dress up, or leave the house and the treats I received were healthy.

Hmmm . . . let's just establish that I was excited to receive my samples from Rudi's Organics. I tired them all* (oh, such sufferin') just for you! Here's what I thought:

100% Whole Wheat Bread

The first product that I tried from Rudi's was their Honey Sweet Whole Wheat and I still claim it as my favorite. The 100% Whole Wheat, though, is similar. It's an excellent, no frills sandwich bread, equally good toasted and untoasted.

7 Grain with Flax Bread

OK, let me be honest. My husband hated this bread. I didn't. I didn't like it as much as I liked the other products, but I didn't hate it. It's a dense bread, full of grains as the name implies. To me, this bread worked better for toast and grilled cheese than for cold sandwiches or to eat plain.

Cinnamon Raisin Bagel

So many of you picked this as the product you would try! Good choice! The bagels are yummy and not too large. I often find bagels too big and these were the perfect size for breakfast or an afternoon snack. I wished that they had a little more cinnamon flavor, though.

Multigrain Bagel

TERRIFIC! Oh, wow. I loved these bagels. They have a great texture and flavor. I just loved them. And, I am happy to report, Conal loved them, too! He's my little bagel man so I like being able to serve him one that is full of grains and goodness.

*Multigrain Wraps

More honesty: I froze these and didn't try them yet. What a slacker, right? I know! I just . . . hmmm . . . I didn't get around to thawing them and I needed to get this post up today and so, well, the wraps just lost out. Or I lost out, depending on how you look at it. Either way, no review. You'll have to try them for yourself! I plan to try them next week.

Overall

After sampling the new products, I have become more of a Rudi's Organics fan (my favorites are the Honey Sweet Whole Wheat and the Multigrain Bagels). I purchase the products at my local food co-op and you can visit the Rudi's site to find out where you can buy your own!

And now . . . the WINNERS of my 200th post giveaway:

Lindsay (of Chasing the Kenyans)
Jinxy and Me (of Jinxy Knows Best, etc.)

Congratulations! Please email me at felicehalf at yahoo dot com with your address.

Now, I'm off the playground with Conal to enjoy this nice sunny day. Have a great day!

thanks for the review. interesting that you commented on the size of the bagels. what's up with the supersized bagels there days? i can only eat half usually. it's nice to know there is a company somewhere that's making them more reasonably sized

OK dumb question but do you just get them in the regular supermarket? Or do you have to go special?
