Kinnikinnick Soft Breads: Review & Giveaway

There is a new soft gluten-free bread in town, and it is pretty amazing.  Kinnikinnick has recently come out with two new loaves as well as hamburger and hot dog buns.

What’s Great About It

  • All of them are very soft and stay that way after a couple of days and after being frozen.
  • The loaf breads (multigrain and white) are full size loaves.

Those two things alone have sold me on this bread.  I don’t buy a lot of gluten-free bread, but when I do, this will now be my go-to brand.

What’s Good About It

  • Price of the loaves.  The breads I tried were sent to me directly from Kinnikinnick so I have not bought it in stores.  But the price shown on their web site is $4.99 per loaf.  As far as gluten-free bread goes, that’s a very good price for a full size loaf.
  • The breads are all packaged in sealed plastic bags.  I have had trouble with other brands often being dry, and I have wondered if it had to do with the fact the plastic bag is not sealed.

What’s Not So Good

  • The bread breaks easily.  I noticed this with the loaf bread, not the buns.  Although it is soft, it still breaks.  It’s manageable and doesn’t deter me from preferring this bread because of it’s benefits, but it is noticeable.

Other Information

  • A package of hotdog or hamburger buns contains four buns.  Their site lists them at $4.59 per package.  That’s not a bad price compared to other brands, but based on price, I would prefer to buy a full size loaf of bread and use that for a hamburger or hot dog.
  • The buns are not cut, which is not unusual.  As you can see in the above photo, they don’t fold open (I don’t know a gluten-free bun that does).  You slice the buns in half, and it works fine.


Where to Buy

First, be sure that you are getting their new bread.  The label has a yellow background.

You can purchase from the Kinnikinnick online store or use the store locator to find their products near you.

    Love the bread. Placing another order to stock up because my grocer doesn’t carry it. I spend too much time and gas driving to all the different stores. The chain grocer doesn’t carry the same stock in each store. We love Kinnikinnick GF bread and all of the other foods.

  11. And I am subscribed to you via email :)

  30. Kelly Leonard says:

  31. Melissa C. says:

    I haven’t tried any yet!

  32. Not many of your Products in Fla that I can find- however- did find your pie crusts and will stick with them as they are so good- just wish you would make a 9 in one :)- have also found some of your rolls and they are great- getting ready to move to another State so will be placing an order on-line as soon as we get moved- I have also liked your site and hear many good reviews about your products

  49. I have already tried Kinnikinnick KinniToos Chocolate Vanilla Sandwich Cookies. I might have also tried their KinniToos Vanilla Sandwich Creme Cookies, but I can’t remember. The cookies I had were good, although my gluten-eating husband told me that they did not taste as good as the commercial gluten cookies at all. I would love to try the different types. If I like them enough, I might finally get a chance to stop having to bake bread myself.

  50. I am already an e-mail subscriber.

  51. sandrag says:

    I enjoy the cookies all of them.. But I love the crispy rice cereal better than any other brands…. I would love to win the bread package…..

  52. Shari Hegland says:

    I think the only things I’ve tried so far is their “graham” crackers, and those are a nice alternative to still be able to share s’mores with the rest of the family in the summer.

  53. Maria Meyer says:

    Love their pizza crusts and their “graham” crackers..Graham crackers have always been one of my “go to snacks” since I was a child and it was nice to find a gluten free alternative that tasted like the regular ones.

  65. Deanne Johnson says:

    Question–do I need to post a comment on your blog plus the other options (liking on Facebook, commenting on e-mail, etc.)? I have wondered about this for a while. After all, I don’t want to disqualify myself from winning…;)

    • Hi Deanne. I’m sorry it’s confusing! You can enter up to four times based on the four options listed in the post. You need to leave a separate comment here for each entry. For example, if you post about the giveaway on Facebook, you then come bake and leave a comment telling me you did that. If you like Kinnikinnick on Facebook, you leave a comment telling me you did that, etc. Make sense?

  66. I liked them on Facebook, too :)

  128. Bonnie says:

    I have tried all of these products. They are AMAZING!!! I can’t find them in my area yet, but they are awesome. If you need gluten free, they are the best out there. So tasty and soft. UNBELIEVABLE!!! Now I need for myself and my son. Please Kinnikinick get them out to other stores in the New Jersey area.

    You all really, really need to try these breads and rolls. You will NOT be disappointed. No other gluten free products can compare. So much better
    than all of those other frozen breads that are out there. And the price is pretty
    reasonable for gluten free, very competitive. Not bad at all. Everyone you have to try these new breads!!!

  129. Jeanne Leder says:

    I LOVE Kinnikinnick products! But alas! I have not seen these new breads in my favorite store! I’m going to have to do some “digging”…. I’d love to win!

  130. I am looking forward to trying these products especially the buns, BBQ season is almost upon us.

  131. Martine says:

    I have tried many Kinnikinnick products, including their old style hamburger buns which tasted good but had to be toasted or they would fall apart. We like their cinnamon buns, panko crumbs and graham cracker crumbs.
