Katz Gluten Free Samples update

In case you were wondering how the Katz Gluten Free Sampler tasted... here's an update!

The breads:  These were so yummy!  One thing I noticed right away was that the crust didn't taste nasty.  I have been eaten frozen breads from Kinnikinnick and I really hate the taste of their crust.  I am not overly fond of their bread either, but generous amounts of peanut butter do cure a lot of ills.  With Katz' bread, they actually tasted good and I couldn't help but feel a pang of jealousy against those who had these locally in their stores.  I liked them all, but loved the Wholesome variety best.

The cookies:  These were good, but crumbly.  I liked the thumbprints that they sent and ate them right up.  I had to try to pace myself, but couldn't.  The chocolate chip cookie was ok too, and the sprinkle one?  I'm not even sure I remember eating that one.  Maybe the kids swiped it!

Cupcakes and marble cake:  The chocolate cupcake was very yummy.  It wasn't too chocolately, which is a huge plus for me since I don't like a very strong chocolate taste.  I'm more of a milk chocolate lover than a dark chocolate lover.  The sampler also came with some honey muffin/cupcakes and though a tad dry, they were still good.  I bet they taste best fresh from the oven.   The marble cake was good too and came super moist, just the way I like it!  It tasted more like chocolate than white and I think the whirl was more chocolate than white.  But it was very good and left me wishing I had the rest of it here to snag another piece.

The Rugalech:  These were dry, but I don't know how rugalech is supposed to taste.  I've seen other bloggers who got samples remark on this and I do wonder if that is just how it is supposed to be.  The cinnamon would have tasted so much better if it had come a bit more moist.  The chocolate rugalech I didn't really like.  This was too chocolatey for me and perhaps a bit overdone on the bottom.  I'd try the cinnamon rugalech again though because I love cinnamon rolls and would love to try them again gluten free.

Overall, these products were absolutely delicious!
