While I was at my local Whole Foods the other day, I noticed a new GF food to try, Ian’s Maple Sausage and Egg Wafflewich. I go into trying a new (to me) GF product skeptical but with an open mind. I will try anything to see if I can “discover” some new gluten-free godsend, just as I had with the Udi’s bread.
The boys and I came home from the store and opened the box, preheated the oven and waited.
Sam and I held our breaths and crossed our fingers then we took a bite. Well, tried to anyway. I followed the directions to a tee and were disappointed that we could hardly get our teeth into the waffle. It was extremely hard and crunchy on the outside. Wet and crumbly on the underside. We decided to scrap the waffle part and try the sausage and egg. The sausage had zero flavor, it looked like a gray piece of cardboard, and tasted pretty much the same. We didnt even try the egg. It’s like like when someone opens a jug of soured milk then asks you to take a wiff to see if it smells bad. You know it is bad, so why?? Sam gave it a big thumbs down. I second that.
This is a great example of how much progress has been made in the area of gluten free foods. Ian’s has been there for us since the beginning of our journey, (Sam likes the fish sticks), but sadly it doesnt seem as though they have kept up with all of the new products that are out there.
