Gluten-Free Review: Glutino Bagel Chips & Snack Crackers

If you’re gluten free, chances are you’ve tried at least one of Glutino’s products.  They have an entire line of certified gluten-free snacks, breads, cereals, frozen meals and baking mixes, and they are stocked in a lot of regular grocery stores so it’s easy to find them.

At the expo this past weekend I was set up right next to their table and got to sample the new offerings they brought, snack crackers and bagel chips.  Gluten-free crackers are everywhere these days, but bagel chips are not something I’ve come across often so they were a real treat!

The plain bagel chips are pretty good, although a bit bland for my taste – they definitely cry out for some kind of topping.  The parmesan garlic are much better if you just want to snack on them without any dip – I love anything garlic so I was sold immediately!  My favorite way to use both flavors is broken up on top of salads in lieu of croutons. 

They also had a new cinnamon sugar flavor that was out of this world – so good in fact that I’m not sure I want to have a box in my pantry, I have enough trouble fighting my sweet tooth without having those staring me in the face!  They are bursting with cinnamon flavor and a whole lot of sweetness and crunch, I was a big fan.

The all-new snack crackers are also a great addition to their line.  Very hearty and crunchy, and could definitely hold up to toppings and heavy dips with ease, although they have plenty of flavor on their own.

The rosemary flavor wasn’t overpowering at all, and they have a distinctive sweet aftertaste that I enjoyed.  However that sweetness is due to what I consider to be a fairly high amount of sugar, 4g per 11 crackers, so I probably wouldn’t buy these all the time either.  That’s an issue you often run into with GF products unfortunately – low in fiber and high in sugar.  But still great as a treat!

Glutino products are pretty easy to find in stores, and while they can be expensive full price, they do also have coupons available – there’s a printable one for $1 off available right now on coupons.com, and you can get a 55 cent coupon from their website.  Lately I’ve regularly found one or two varieties on sale for about half price each time I visit Harris Teeter – I got that box of bagel chips for just $1.50 pairing a sale with a coupon!
