Real Foods Corn Thins

One of my close friends is Australian and her food picks are always spot on. So while she didn’t bring Corn Thins to my attention, they got some decent mindshare since they are Australian-made. What exactly are Corn Thins? They’re a natural, low-fat crispbread made from popped corn. And even though they’re made in Australia, they’re widely available at retailers in the US and beyond.


This taste test took place during a break at a dance competition where I happened to have access to hungry kids and gluten-free ones, too. The company’s Tasty Cheese Flavor disappeared before everyone got a taste — a very good sign. The Original Flavor was next to disappear. They also come in Organic Flax & Soy, BBQ, Cracked Pepper & Lemon, Sesame, Sun Dried Tomato & Feta, Multigrain, and Sour Cream & Chives.

One of our testers — a parent — mentioned that she liked the double packaging. The Corn Thins are packaged in foil which is, in turn, packaged in a plastic bag similar to bread.

They’re a great substitute for bread and topped with some protein such as peanut butter, cheese or salmon they’d be a filling, healthy snack. Our testers also suggested they’d be good with salsa.

The company, which has been around since 1980, only makes gluten-free products.

  1. Never heard of Corn Thins. Would be willing to try them, but where do I look? Would prefer not to have to buy them online if possible. Have lots of grocery stores close by – Krogers, Food Lion, and Food City plus many others within 25 miles – Trader Joes, Publix, Ingles, Fresh Market, and Benefit Your Health (a specialty store).

  2. Fred Meyers stores (part of the Krogers family) in the northwest have carried Corn Thins for years. I’ve been gluten free for many years and they used to be the only bread substitute useful for sandwiches when toasters and / or microwaves were not available (e.g. picnics or lunches at day camps). I used to spread them with low fat cream cheese and add sliced sandwich meat. Delicious!

  3. I live in Irvine, Ca., which is southern Ca., and I too would like to know where I can find these Corn Thins. Thank you so much!
