Good and Bad Kinnikinnick -- Reviews

So, I have been praising Kinnikinnick, everything we have tried, we've liked and even loved, until now.  Lee's didn't have any Udi's white sandwich bread in stock, so I thought we could try the Kinnikinnick white sandwich bread...bad idea.  It really wasn't that bad, but after having my homemade bread and the Udi's bread, it just wasn't going to cut it for us, especially with my older one being so incredibly picky with the gluten-free breads.  The texture is more like a sponge cake, so it's a really weird sensation to eat a sandwich with just doesn't feel right on the tongue. My boys couldn't get past the texture of it to enjoy the sandwiches, so with more than half a loaf in the freezer, this ones not worth the price we paid.

Overall Rating 4 out of 10  The taste isn't bad if you can get past the texture, it just doesn't have a yeast bread texture.

Well, I didn't want to end the post with a bad vibe for Kinnikinnick, because everything we've tried we've liked...and to prove it, here is yet another product that was sooo good:  Kinnikinnick Chocolate Dipped Donuts.  Just like the vanilla glazed donuts we tried the other day, these tasted just like regular cake donuts.  Also, they are dairy-free, so I can actually enjoy the chocolate! YAY!  These donuts actually remind me of those chocolate glazed Hostess donettes...except the chocolate is much better and the donuts are bigger, so hey they are better!  They weren't cheap, it was $6.79 for a box of 6, but it was well worth the indulgence.

Overall Rating 10 out of 10  They were very scrumptious and more than made up for the white bread that we bought. :)

  1. I did not care for this bread either. My first bite and I literally gagged. I had to heat and load butter on it which doesn't help in the long run.
