Kinnikinnick's New Products :)

I was thrilled at the beginning of this week to be picked as one of the fortunate people to receive a sample pack of Kinnikinnick's 4 new soft bread items - in their "Toss Your Toaster" campaign ~ even more excited to come home last night to have the box waiting for me ~ oh what to try first??!!! 

We decided on the Kinnikinnick's new soft white hotdog buns :

I have to start with the awesome aroma when I opened the bag ~ I ran into the livingroom and put the bag right under the nose of my guy and said "sniff!" ... mmmmmmmmmmm that delicious fresh bread smell ~ it was delightful.  And I noticed the softness of the products right away, and the sizes!  In both the bread and the buns they were considerably larger than the regular loaf of bread we usually buy ~ Kinnikinnick's has found the way to make a more regular sized loaf with incredible softness,
and amazing texture. 

So I decided to make smokie dogs and put these new buns to the taste test ~ grabbed some other ingredients - Fresh Express Coleslaw, Onion (which I sauteed in a pan with a little olive oil), threw a few Grimm's Fine Foods Bavarian Smokies in the microwave, as a side dish I made some Farabella Gnocci - (that I tossed with a touch of margerine and some dill.)  And wala ~ a simple supper - smokie dogs and gnocci - with a side of cabbage and sauteed onions.  mmmmmm

Biting into the smokie dog was amazing - the new Kinnikinnick buns are awesome!  My honest comment would be that I seriously do not think anyone who is a "gluten eater" (ha ha ;) evil gluten eaters) would be able to tell the difference between this amazing product and one that was made with wheat.  It was seriously heaven ~ soft on the inside yet had a lovely brown and slightly chewy crust ~ really good ... no amazing!  I have to say it is not only splendid that Kinnikinnick's has managed to not only make a better product that is out there now but one that is also a better value for our hard earned money!  Hooray for Kinnikinnick's!!!  And even better that this is a locally owned and operated company - they have done Edmonton proud with the tremendous growth and incredible results ... and seem to be getting better and bigger all the time. 

Big big two thumbs up for Kinnikinnick's Foods Inc. ~ Amazing New Soft Hot dog Buns ~ can't wait to try the rest of the new products! 


***** oh and to note:  It was awesome to throw together lunch today ~ made a quick tuna salad "bunwich" - small can of dill and lemon Cloveleaf tuna, some Daiya Vegan chedder cheese, a handful of the Fresh express coleslaw, Hellman's mayo and a touch of French's mustard, mixed together and spread generously on a Kinnikinnick's new Soft Bun ~ DELICIOUS!!! 

Thank you Kinnikinnick's!!!  You have made one celiac (and by the look of your twitter feed) many others a very very happy woman!
