Last week I received a box of samples from Mary’s Gone Crackers. Exciting!
The Sticks&Twigs are awesome. I was never much of a pretzel lover even in pre-celiac days but whilst these are something similar they are sooo much better…especially the Chipotle Tomato ones. They have just the right amount of crunch and spicyness making them super delicious and addictive. I love tomato flavoured snacks and would always choose tomato flavoured crisps when I was a kid (oooh how I miss you tangy toms..). I rarely come across gluten free tomato flavoured snacks so when I saw these I couldn’t wait to try them. They are made from quite the interesting mix of gluten free seeds and grains – brown rice, whole quinoa, flax seeds, sesame seeds, amaranth, millet and chia seeds which combined with smokey tomato goodness gives them a distinctive texture and taste. I took them on our long weekend to Crater Lake and they barely made it past the first evening. Yum-my.
I rarely eat crackers these days. There isn’t a whole lot of choice when it comes to gluten free crackers and the few gluten free crackers I have tried have been fairly uninspiring. Mary’s Gone Crackers are nothing like this. You would never know they were gluten free. An interesting mixture of gluten free and grains seeds which include brown rice, quinoa, flax seeds and sesame seeds gives the crackers an almost slight burnt flavour that goes really well with spicy hummus or natural yoghurt. They are also super tasty on their own. Crispy and full of flavour. The black pepper taste really comes through in the black pepper ones. I think I liked these the best. I’m always looking for something new to carry with me in case unexpected hunger strikes and these crackers are a nice substitute for gluten free bars.
Mary’s Gone Crackers products are manufactured in their own dedicated wheat free, gluten free, nut free facility…hooray! These safe for celiacs manufacturing practices are sadly not as common as we would wish for so it’s always great when we discover another company whose products are made safely. Thank you Mary’s Gone Crackers for making safe and tasty gluten free snacks for celiacs. I’m yet to try your cookies but if they are as yummy as your other products I look forward to them.
