Udi’s New Soft Tortillas Review and Giveaway

I recently received a package in the mail that really excited me.  It contained Udi’s new gluten-free tortillas.  As soon as I saw them, I knew they would be good.  In fact, I double checked the package to be sure they were gluten free.  They looked too good to be true.  But they are true.  And they are good.  And they are soft. Honestly, they’re amazing!

These tortillas do have to be heated properly in order to be soft and pliable.  I used the microwave method, placing a tortilla between layers of a damp towel.  It’s important to have your filling ingredients ready to go before you heat the tortilla.

Once the tortilla starts cooling, it is more likely to break.  However, once it is folded, it doesn’t break after it cools.  To give you an idea how soft and flexible these tortillas can be, here is one of the small tortillas wrapped tightly around a hot dog.

And here’s a large tortilla used to make a beef and bean burrito.  Gluten-free son and I thoroughly enjoyed our burritos.  They stayed wrapped and held together well while eating.  These tortillas are ruining my low carb diet!

If you miss flour tortillas, you definitely want to keep an eye out for these.  If for some reason, you’re not sure what to do with them, here’s a recipe from Udi’s.

      I am new to being gluten free. Would love to try Udi’s tortillas. I have no experience with gluten free breads.

      • Carolyn Chamblee says

        Start with UDI’s products. If they make an item, I always choose them. They are consistently good and make being GF tolerable.

    • Maureen says

      My daughter has had to eat gluten free food for almost 10 years now and she loves Udi’s.

  1. Kristin says

    I would LOVE to win this! I’ve been searching for a decent GF tortilla. Thank you for the recipe!

    • Daralee says

      I would so buy these for my Grandchildren and my self! It would be the most awesome if they sold these in Walmart, the commissary an or Central Market!

  2. Christine Allen says

    Its always good to hear a product review. I get nervous trying new products without hearing a review first since I spent so much money on food that tasted like cardboard in my early GF years. Thanks for giving us the heads up on these, Ill be trying these as soon as they come to my local stores!!

  3. Sarah Wommack says

    We are about to start my daughter on a gf diet (hoping it has an impact on her ASD). I am excited to have found your blog, and new products to try. This gf thing is kind of overwhelming.

  4. Connie Kedrowicz says

    Can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing your comments and pictures, which made me even more hungry for a good burrito.

  5. Caroline Cebula says

    They even look good! Our only try has been rice tortillas, they were a mess. They looked so bad that I skipped the tortilla and had a salad! But those.. yumm yumm..

  6. B says

    Can you tell me what the ingredients in the tortillas are? They use corn in their bread (not good for Celiac/Gluten sensitive people!) and I’m hoping they have learned and are not using corn in the tortillas.

    Thanks!

  7. thereasa says

    Seeing this made my heart smile! I was not a huge bread eater to begin with. Finding out I had wheat allergies eliminated that food for me. But I love food with tortillas and dearly miss breakfast burritos, easy roll up lunches and every mexican food possible!! Corn tortillas can only do so much. I am soo excited to find somewhere that has these! Thanks!! Are the wheat free? Its so simple to assume gluten free means wheat free, but that is not always the case.

  8. says

    My son has Celiac and after trying pretty much every brand of bread on the market, his favorite has always been Udi’s. I have not seen these yet — how exciting! I’m getting bored with TJ’s brown rice tortillas. Love your site! :-)

  9. Tracie Watkins says

    I am so excited to see these, and try them! My children and I are GF and have missed a nice, warm, soft tortilla to have with our mexican dinners! Are they on sale yet?

  10. Debbie ingoglia says

    I can’t wait to find these in the store. A new alternative for quick lunches .

  11. Marleena says

    I’ve only been able to get the Rudi’s GF tortillas where I live. I would love to try the Udi’s ones to see how they compare.

  12. Cheryl says

    This tortilla sounds so wonderful! To be able to have a burrito again would be fantastic. I hope my local store starts selling them soon!

  13. Patty O. says

    Ah, mexican food! Love it, especially when its gluten free safe! Thanks Udi’s!

  14. says

    I have been looking for a tortilla – a good GF one for a long time. These look like they could fit the burrito!

  15. Laura says

    I am looking forward to trying these, I really do miss flour tortillas!

  16. Courtney says

    I just started the GF diet and tortillas are one thing I’ve been missing…these look great!

  17. says

    I literally cried for almost three years when I lost my tortillas. I didn’t go a week without them. A addiction of mine I guess you would say. I have tried a few and didn’t like them becuase they were not soft or pliable to use. I am super excited to try these, I like the other products so I have very high hopes on the usefulness of these tortillas. I haven’t seen them in stores yet but when I do the prices are always doubled. :)

  18. Theresa C. says

    Finally a soft tortilla !!! I have been missing have tacos on a soft tortilla. Thank you.

  19. emily l says

    These look fabulous! I can’t wait to try them! Thank you for sharing with us:)

  20. Deb says

    Oh, I miss tortillas so much! Besides taco’s I’d make sandwich wraps with them. I must find these!

  21. Diana G says

    can’t wait to see these in the store. I’ve been using the brown rice ones and they’re not particularly flexible.

  22. Stacie Knuth says

    I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, so I am still trying to figure this all out. I made chicken tortillas for my family last night… I just ate chicken with salsa, so I would LOVE to try these, thank you!

  23. Victoria Graves says

    I cannot find gluten free tortillas anywhere in our area. We live in a fairly large, predominantly Hispanic community, and my hubby and son are big tortilla-type-meals eaters. It would be nice to try these and maybe not feel left out, smile

  24. renee daugherty says

    These look so yummy . I cant wait to try them. I love Udi’s bagels and bread. Its a staple in my house.

  25. Becky Kohn says

    Can’t find them anywhere around here. Hope to win because they look so good!

  26. Deb Gowlland says

    Udi’s is my absolute favorite! Would love to try these-they look wonderful!

  27. Nicole says

    I can’t wait to try these! I have been disappointed with some other brands.

  28. Monisha says

    THese sound so good-Would love a soft tortilla that is not corn and the brown rice tortillas stick in the throat!

  29. jaime l brooks says

    I love Udi’s products. They have the best bread for gluten free.

  30. says

    I can’t wait for these to show up in the stores! When my family has tortillas, sometimes I use a frozen GF pizza crust, but since they’re $5.99 for a two-pack, that’s a pretty expensive wrap!

  31. Pam says

    Can’t wait to see how SOFT they are! Will buy them regardless of whether or not I win….

  32. Kara says

    We have yet to find a gluten free “flour” tortilla that we like. We have LOVED all of the Udi’s products we have tried so I’m excited for these to come to our local store!

  33. Mindy says

    Those look soooo good. Love Udi’s! Now to get my local store to carry them.

  34. Stephanie Walker says

    I would love to win this… I have just started with GF and it has been a struggle to figure out what to eat.

  35. Julie says

    I would LOVE to win these! I haven’t’ found wraps that taste good or are even soft so I would be so excited to try these! Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. Stephanie Anderson says

    I would love to try these! I miss having some good soft shell tortillas!!!

  37. Christa says

    It would be fun to try these! I have been making enchiladas with corn tortillas with my husband, and they’re just not the same.

  38. Monica B. says

    I’d love to win! Can’t wait until these come to stores around here!

  39. Mina says

    I’m glad to hear that they are so good. We’ve missed not being able to eat quesadillas and burritos!! We can’t wait to try them!!

  40. Carol says

    These look really yummy!! Would love to win them and then add them to my menus!!!

  41. Jenni Rom says

    I’d LOVE to try these! I’m not a fan of the brown rice variety that is available here. They squeak in my teeth.

  42. says

    I’ve been wanting to try GF tortillas for quite some time, and haven’t yet. Looks like these are the ones to try! Thanks for sharing!

  43. Stephanie says

    I am so excited to try this!! I love making hummus wraps but they are quite difficult to eat because I have to buy those tiny corn tortillas. So happy Udis made a tortilla big enough to actually make a real wrap.

  44. Sherron says

    I’ve been making my own tortillas, but it would be great to have some ready-made tortillas in the freezer for last minute meals. I love Udi’s bread- this is a great company!

  45. Linda says

    Oh wow!!! I will have to go look for those tortillas. Can’t wait to try them and the recipe!!! <3

  46. laura says

    I cannot wait to try these! It is so wonderful to see some of the products we have so long been without! Thanks for sharing this I have not seen them before!

  47. Cindy W. says

    I can’t wait to find these in my local store – or win this contest. (:
    Thank you for the giveaway.

  48. Julie says

    Look forward to trying these – only other ones I’ve found tasted like cardboard.

  49. Laura says

    I love Udi’s whole grain sandwich bread. I can’t wait to try these. I’ve been using the Ezekial Foods Brown Rice tortillas, and, while they are good, I’d like an alternative for when I’m fed up with rice but want a burrito….

  50. Janis S says

    I’ve tried some other gf tortillas and they were terrrible. These look like gluten-full tortillas. have to give these a try!

  51. Linda:-) says

    Your pictures are making me hungry and the recipe sounds great! I love Udi’s too and hope we have the tortillas in our local stores soon! I would love to have a ‘regular’ burrito or quesadilla! I get jealous every time the rest of my family has flour tortillas and I’m stuck with a little ol’ corn one!

  52. Joyce says

    I can’t wait to have a soft shell taco again! Or sandwich wraps. Or quesadillas. or all the things i can think of using a soft tortilla shell for. if it’s Udi’s – it’s got to be good!

  53. Ellen says

    Last month I celebrated my 62nd birthday. It was my first birthday in a 25 year run that I couldn’t celebrate with my husband’s out-of-this-world tacos!! I now have hope—Maybe Mother’s Day? Udi’s other products are so good–can’t imagine these would be any different.

  54. Suzanne R says

    I’ve been a fan of Udi’s bread forever. Would love to try these tortillas.

  55. Theresa says

    Our family loves anything that comes in a tortilla! can’t wait to try these. Thanks, for the opportunity.

  56. Jackie Walker says

    I have been waiting years for a good tortilla. Can’t wait to try it.

  57. Melanie D. says

    Sounds great just got a recipe to make these but I love udi’s so a sample first might be a great idea! I miss burritos so much. I am not a quesadilla fan but anything with mushrooms has my support 😉

  58. Deb Shepardson says

    I love all UDI’s gluten-free products! They are the best tasting of any other brand. I would love to try the tortillas. Please pick me!

  59. Nancy says

    I have not had a soft taco shell since 1989, when I was diagnosed with Celiac. I would love to try them. I am so glad that Udi’s has come out with their GF line of breads. The hot dog buns taste like the real thing :) I haven’t found the soft taco shells here yet but they may have them in a bigger grocery store that I haven’t been to in a while. I hope that I win so that I can have tacos!

  60. Patty says

    I love making tacos with hard and soft shells. These soft tortillas would be ideal to wrap around a hard corn shell. I’ve been waiting for something like this.

  61. Diana Rios says

    Those tortillas look really great. It would be nice for find a good flexible tortilla that is not made of corn. I am tired of the corn we do eat that often. I have to request my store carry those.

  62. Michele says

    would love to win! and try the recipe mexican food is my favorite and I would love having another choice other than corn torts.

  63. Kari S. says

    I have really missed having a decent flour tortilla. Would love to win this :)

  64. Tiffany says

    I too get tired of the tiny corn tortillas and these look amazing, I will have to try these sometime! thanks for the review and the give away.

  65. Deanne says

    Oh, these look so yummy! I have missed tortillas since needing to go GF!

  66. Renee says

    I cannot even begin to imagine how excited my daughter will be when I get these for her. She cried the first time I made her toast with Udi’s bread. She missed bread a lot more than I realized. :) Thanks for the review!

  67. JillW says

    The Udi’s tortillas look delicious! Can’t wait to try them! Thanks for the heads-up! :)

  68. Jenny says

    Hope they are in my Publix soon. I do happy dances in the aisles whenever they get something new!

  69. Fran Kozicki says

    Oh Tortillas! I miss them so! I do use corn tortillas sometimes, but they don’t roll like a burito!

  70. patricia says

    WOW !! Gluten-free tortillas. These look awesome. Can’t wait to try.

  71. Vicky says

    I seen them in a Hy-Vee store several weeks ago. This store wanted more than what I was willing to pay. BUT; These would be great for making pizzas with!

  72. Nancy says

    Would love to try these, soft tortillas are one thing I miss. Have been looking online on how to make my own gluten free tortillas.

  73. Karol says

    I love Udi’s, but have not seen their tortillas in stores yet. Would love to try these.

  74. Eve Wyman says

    I’ve been waiting for a good tortilla–gluten-free of course. Can’t wait to buy some on my next shopping trip!

  75. says

    You lost me at the hot dog wrapped in the tortilla wrap… OMG>>> a whole new world has opened up for me!

  76. Jeanne says

    Oh, Linda! I’ve been longing for a good flour tortilla for soooo long you wouldn’t believe it! I can hardly wait to try Udi’s tortillas! I hope my name is drawn.

  77. Julene Mathews says

    I had mexican the other night and was bemoaning the lack of a good tortilla. Yay Udi’s!

  78. Jessica says

    I love making cheddar apple quesadillas… Gluten and dairy free of course!

  79. Colleen M says

    I am so excited! I haven’t had an Udi’s product that I didn’t like!! Thanks for the opportunity to be a winner! I hope that these are in my local grocery store soon!

  80. Ann Maurren says

    Udi’s makes fantastic GF foods, can’t wait to have my daughter try these and hope to win the contest…. but will buy them either way….

  81. Kathleen Conner says

    I just love the new GF products that are coming out! These look great

  82. Laurie says

    Commenting again. Gave the wrong email address! I do miss eating burritos and would love to try this product.

  83. Joy says

    I can’t wait to try these. Along with celiac disease, I also have problems digesting food, so, a new way to enjoy meat or sandwiches is very exciting. I can’t wait to be able to find these available. Thanks so much for sharing.

  84. says

    Bendy, soft GF tortillas? Yes, please! We get tired of those corn ones from Costco. They’re fine, but it’d be swell to have a change– for a change! 😀 Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  85. Carrie Elsass says

    Can’t wait to try these, whether I win or not! Soft, pliable GF tortillas are not easy to come by(unless you count corn)…

  86. Diana Wojtasinski says

    One thing I miss is flour tortillas. Can’t wait to try these

  87. Anne Held says

    Can’t wait to try Udi’s gf tortillas. Their bread is amazing. I don’t doubt that the tortillas will be good as well.

  88. Ann says

    Udi’s has good products, and I look forward to trying the tortillas, too.

  89. PJ says

    I love all Udi’s products that I have tasted. After having to go on a GF diet three years ago, GF tortillas are the food item I have missed the most! I cannot wait to try them! =)

  90. Twila says

    Thank you for the review. I look forward to trying a tortilla that is a tortilla.

  91. Carolsue says

    I checked to make sure they sell these near me and they do! Hope I win!

  92. Mary says

    Well, well. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for this one. We’ve been trying to make due with white corn tortillas but they always crack and fall apart. Not very nice presentation for my hard work at making some tasty burritos or enchilladas. I’m hopeful. And doubly hopefully I’ll be one of the winners of the give-away:)

    thanks again Linda!

  93. Brandi Lock says

    I love Rudi’s/Udi’s products. Can’t wait to try these. Thx for keeping us in Awesome food!

  94. Teresa Cowan says

    I would looooooove to try these. My family eats gluten free, my daughter has CD and it’s hard to find good gf food in our small town.

  95. Kelly Street says

    I LOVE Udi’s products! !!! I am excited to try these! I have been on the hunt for a yummy GF tortillas!

  96. Denise Abel says

    I am new to gluten free. Usuall avoid prepackaged foods but would love to try the gluten free tortillas

  97. says

    My son has had Celiac for almost 3 years now. It has been a difficult road for him at age 10. He is very small for his age and due to the Crohns. He is a very picky eater, so it makes his GF diet even more difficult. He loves tortillas, and has been eating the corn ones (even though he doesn’t care much for them, because they are so hard). He likes to spread peanut butter on them. I am excited that Udi’s has come out with a soft tasty tortilla. I would love to be able to have him try these. I often don’t purchase new products for him to try, because of the cost in our area being so high, and with him being picky, I end up throwing stuff away if he doesn’t like it. Thanks for sharing this great news!

  98. Vicki says

    Can’t wait to try a tortilla that doesn’t crack when rolling!! Thanks for sharing this great news.

  99. Jodi Jacobs says

    I miss good soft tortilla’s so much. I can’t wait to try these.

  100. Carrie Holdcraft says

    Woukd love to try these. My daughter misses flour tortillas and will eat corn tortillas, but doesn’t like them as much.

  101. Brittany says

    I love Udi’s! Our family uses Udi’s every week. I’d love to try these new wraps.

  102. says

    I find that a lot of gluten free products are hit or miss — especially with tortillas. These look pliable and (as with other Udi products) look like they will taste fantastic to boot!

  103. Christine says

    New to your website! Brought here by Udi’s. And I LOVE Udi’s! Thank you to both of you.

  104. Deedra Rogers says

    New to eating GF, limited in what products I can find where I live. Would love to try these! Thanks!

  105. Maya says

    Udi’s continues to impress me, just with their products were less calories (I still eat them though!). Have been looking for a larger tortilla, glad there finally is one!

  106. Rachel baptista says

    Good tortillas are one of the things I miss the most since becoming gluten free!

  107. Solducky says

    How neat! My 4 year old has to do corn tortilla chips on burrito night – she would love to have her own tortillas!

  108. kit Grabowski says

    I can’t wait to try these! We make tacos regularly as well as sandwich wraps & desperately need a GF alternate tortilla

  109. Sheila K. says

    I would love to try these—thanks for the opportunity to win a coupon!

  110. Karin Goodman says

    I miss flour tortilla’s. Not the taste, but how they fold. The corn ones are not the same and are smaller. I have tried GF wraps, but find most break. Would love to see if these are as good as they look.

  111. Susan says

    I’ve been waiting for a long time for Udi’s to come out with something like regular tortillas! I love the baguette I just tried recently.
