Gluten-Free Friday: Goldfish Puffs

I love it when familiar brands come out with new gluten-free products, so when I saw Goldfish Puffs advertised recently, I knew I had to find a bag!

Goldfish were a regular snack in my life for years.  I loved their perfect amount of cheesy flavor, their small size, and of course the cute little fish shape.  I have wished for a gluten-free version of them to come out, and was super excited to see the new Puffs line.

Now, if you're buying them expecting them to taste like Goldfish, you're going to be disappointed.  They are most definitely a different product, in both texture and flavor.  Granted, the flavor difference could be attributed to the fact that I bought the Cheddar Bacon flavor - I am a girl that can rarely resist bacon in any form - so maybe the Mega Cheese would be more on par with regular Goldfish.  But the texture is more like a slightly denser puffed cheese doodle.  As I am also a cheese doodle fan, I was fully on board.  They also have a nice smoky flavor that is definitely reminiscent of bacon, even if it's not as good as the real thing.

Bonus that they are also not super expensive like some gluten-free snacks - they retail for $2.99, and right now on Target Cartwheel they've got a 20% off coupon.  Think I'm going to try the Mega Cheese next.  I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to spice though so I'm not sure on the Buffalo - if anyone has tried them and can estimate the spice level for me, let me know!
