We’re such big fans of Canyon Bakehouse, it’s almost embarrassing. But we know we’re not alone. The longtime gluten-free bread makers continue to make gluten-free (and dairy-, soy-, and nut-free) breads that taste like, well, great, fluffy, moist, sturdy-enough bread! Even better, they continue to roll out new products we need and want.
Now their products, including their new stay-fresh buns and new sub rolls (!!!), are hitting grocery shelves and frozen-food sections in pretty new packaging, just in time for much-needed summer fun.
So, what do you need to know to make the very best of your gluten-free burgers, submarine sandwiches, and more during picnicking and camping season and beyond?
Canyon Bakehouse New Buns and Rolls Fast Facts
All Canyon Bakehouse products have pretty new packaging. But their wonderful recipe formulations for existing products remain the same. In other words, great taste, new outfit!
With the arrival of stay-fresh burger buns last year, there are now two types of Canyon Bakehouse buns to choose from (stay-fresh and frozen). They come four to a pack and have great taste and texture. The main difference is how they are packaged and stored.
New Stay-fresh gluten-free Burger Buns: Look for stay-fresh packaged buns in the bread aisle. They stay fresh, unopened, for up to 90 days from the date on the bag clasp thanks to special sealed packaging. Once opened, store the buns airtight and eat them within a week (don’t freeze). Stay-fresh is a great choice if you don’t have room in the freezer (they should be stored at room temperature) or want to take them on a trip (Hello, camping!).
Frozen buns: Frozen buns are just that: buns found in the gluten-free frozen foods section. They’re best stored in the freezer until you’re ready to use them and once you do, store them on your kitchen counter for up to 7 to 10 days. They’re the perfect selection if you prefer to freeze your bread products, or plan to go through your buns and rolls over a longer period of time, like weeks or months (they keep for several months frozen, even after opening).
Worth noting: While they are essentially the same product with different packaging and storage, there is one more difference between stay-fresh and frozen buns: their names. Stay-fresh are “Burger Buns” and frozen are “Hamburger Buns.” Why? Different names are required for grocery-store distribution and inventory purposes!
