Mary’s Gone Crackers was kind enough to let Triumph Dining sample some of their gluten-free products recently. Not only does this company have pretty much the best name ever, they also make some amazing gluten-free snacks. I’m a huge fan!
Their Pretzels are pretzel sticks, but they are better than any pretzel type snack I’ve ever eaten. They are made from an interesting mix of gluten-free seeds and grains – brown rice, whole quinoa, flax seeds, sesame seeds, amaranth, miller and chia seeds, which gives them a unique and interesting taste and texture. Pretzels come in three tasty flavors, Chipotle Tomato, Curry and Sea Salt, all of which have a wonderful crunch to them. Whilst I enjoyed each of the flavors, the chipotle tomato ones with their tasty spicy tomato flavor have got to be my favorite. Delicious!!
I’m also a big fan of their crackers. I often find that gluten-free crackers are pretty boring or tasteless, but these ones are in a whole different league of tasty cracker. Again, similar to the Pretzels, these crackers are a combination of gluten-free grains and seeds which gives them a smoky flavor (but in a good way) and which goes really well with hummus, natural yoghurt, salsa or guacamole. These crackers are also fantastic on their own as they have lots of flavor to them. They come in five different flavors – original, onion, caraway, black pepper and herb. The original and herb are my favorite for dipping and the black pepper and onion ones I like to nibble as they are.
Mary’s cookies are pretty yummy too and come in four flavors – n’oatmeal raisin (an oatmeal type cookie without oats!), ginger snaps, double chocolate and chocolate chip. They are crunchy cookies rather than bendy cookies, which makes them more like biscuits in my book but maybe that’s just me. All of these cookies make for a tasty treat alongside a big cup of hot tea or a chilled glass of almond milk. Who can resist a chocolate chip or double chocolate gluten-free cookie? Yum!
All of Mary’s Gone Crackers products are manufactured in their own dedicated gluten-free, dairy free, nut free facility. Woohoo! I wish all gluten free products were made in factories like this but sadly this is not the case…yet! Thank you Mary’s Gone Crackers for making such delicious and safe gluten-free snacks for us.
