Review: Gluten Free Brazi Bites Brazil Cheese Bread

**UPDATE: I know many of you are visiting this 2012 post in 2015 since the awesome folks at Brazi Bites appeared on an episode of Shark Tank. Since I posted this in 2012, much has changed. You used to be able to order Brazi Bites online, but now, LUCKY US, they are available in SO MANY STORES across the US. To find a store near you that carries this product visit THEIR STORE LOCATOR HERE.**

Brazi Bites is one of the companies that currently makes Brazil cheese bread. I’ve seen them at every gluten-free expo that I’ve been to – so it was nice to finally connect with them. They sent me three sample packages to try out their cheese bread. They offer three flavors – cheese blend, bacon, and fire-roasted jalapeno.

They’re gluten-free and come in resealable packaging. You can take them right out of the freezer, pop them on a cookie sheet, and you’re done! SO EASY! They use Tillamook cheese – which is awesome, because it’s my favorite cheese brand. Non-GFBF even toured their facility when he was in Oregon! Each pouch comes with 22 pieces. Brazil cheese bread is interesting – it’s baked on the outside, but supposed to be kind of chewy/fluffy in the center. It’s almost like they’re not baked all the way when they’re done.

They’re really good – and they’re small, so you don’t have to have an entire loaf of bread at dinner. They’re great cheese bread bites. I really like them. Non-GFBF loves the jalapeno, and I really liked the cheese blend and the bacon (the jalapeno was too spicy for me). I’ve made them with several meals now – and they pair amazing with wine too!

Cheese blend ingredients: tapioca starch, eggs, milk, parmesan cheese (part skim milk,  cheese cultures, salt, enzymes), safflower oil and/or soybean oil, cheddar cheese (cultured milk, salt, enzymes), water, salt.

Fire-roasted Jalapeno ingredients: tapioca starch, eggs, milk, parmesan cheese (part skim milk,  cheese cultures, salt, enzymes), safflower oil and/or soybean oil, cheddar cheese (cultured milk, salt, enzymes), fire-roasted jalapeno (palapeno peppers, water, citric acid, salt), water, salt.

All-natural bacon ingredients: tapioca starch, eggs, milk, parmesan cheese (part skim milk,  cheese cultures, salt, enzymes), safflower oil and/or soybean oil, cheddar cheese (cultured milk, salt, enzymes), all-natural bacon (pork, water, sea salt, turbinado sugar, celery powder), water, salt.

You can buy them online for $7.50 (regularly $8.50) on their website. Here’s what’s not awesome. Shipping. From their website – “Shipping and handling charges include freezer box, dry ice, handling and NEXT DAY delivery. Aproximate chargers per state for 4 pouches: OR $18, WA $18, ID $19-$46, CA $45, all others $48.” That’s right. When I calculated my shipping, it was over $50 to Arizona. So, you better live in Oregon and Washington at all of the stores they are available there.

If shipping wasn’t a problem (and you’re lucky enough to be in the Pacific Northwest) then I’d give them a 4.5 out of 5! Clearly, I can’t really recommend paying the huge shipping fees outside their shipping areas (like Arizona), but if you get a chance to buy them and try them, I recommend them!

    These sound delicious and meet my nutritional restrictions. Can I buy these direct or is there a store here locally that sells these little devils? I can’t wait to get my hands on these gems. Thanks & I look forward to ordering!

    I just wanted to post about the fact noone else even read the article to see that you only reviewed the product and that you are not affiliated w brazi bites at all.

    Also – thanks for the review. I am driving from nyc to philly this weekend to find a whole foods that sells these

    Your post is wrong– You cannot buy them online on their website. You can only search to see if any stores near you carry them, which didn’t help me. (No states near me carry these) If any one know’s of anywhere you can buy them that would be helpful. I looked every where on line to try & purchase them after watching Shark Tank!!

    Nice to see you handle dumb questions so gracefully, Erica. My gosh, I thought it was bad on my blog! Do people not read any more? How can it be possible to think a reviewer can sell you the product? LOL
