Mary’s Organic Crackers Gluten Free Everything Pretzels

Health values: organic, gluten free, whole grain, non-gmo, soy free, vegan

A  non-gluten free friend, who doesn’t really worry about organics or ingredients, looked at all the wonderful health values listed above and asked me, “With so many things missing, how could there be any flavor?”

Well, let me tell you, these organic snacks are ALL flavor. It’s not about what’s missing, it’s about what’s included in the recipe.

After tasting the first piece of these “everything pretzels”, I devoured the snack-size bag and immediately put a full-size bag on my shopping list. Mary created a flavor party with these, and I loved every crunchy bite.

All the flavors – onion, garlic, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and more – come together and create a flavor explosion, which also makes for a very satisfying treat. This is conscious eating at its best.

I’ve included a photo of the ingredient list because I know there can be sensitivies and allergies to anything.

The only thing I’d caution you about is that even though these are called “pretzels”, they’re really not – they’re more of a cracker shaped into sticks. They don’t have any pretzel taste to them, and if you’ve ever had any “Mary’s Gone Crackers” crackers, you’ll recognize the base. But don’t let that deter you, these are wonderful, fun to eat, and you can even dip them in mustard!

10 Gluten Free and Casein Free Movie Snacks

Not sure what’s safe and what’s not at a movie theater? Here are 10 gluten free and casein free snacks you can depend on:

  1. Dots (fruit flavor, tropical, crows)
  2. Mike & Ike (Zours, Jelly beans, Hot Tamales)
  3. Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews
  4. Skittles (Crazy Cores, Fizzl’d Fruits, Original, Sour, Tropical, Wild Berry
  5. Starburst Fruit Chews (Jelly beans, FavREDs, Original, Summer Fun Fruits, Sweet/Sour, Tropical)
  6. Starburst GummiBursts (Original, Flavor Duos, Sour)
  7. Sunkist Fruit Gems
  8. Swedish Fish
  9. Sweet Tarts (Original, Shockers Chewy Candy, Tangy Candy Hearts) *a commenter said that this candy is not safe for Celiacs as it is apparently made in a facility that also processes wheat. I checked and he’s right. Thank you!
  10. Lifesavers (Assorted Sours, Gummies Island Fruit, Gummies Wild Berries, Wild Berries Sours)
And now for the question you’ve all been waiting for: is movie theater popcorn gluten free? The answer is sometimes. If your movie theater serves hot dogs and pretzels, chances are there is cross-contamination. Also, whatever the popcorn is being popped in could be cross-contaminated. It’s a “you never know” situation, so it’s most important for you to either ask (especially ask what oil it’s popped in and/or what brand of popcorn) or just don’t get it.
Check out this page for some more details:

Cheese Ups

As all food allergy prone people know, good snacks can be difficult to come by, especially when you’re allergic to more than one thing (like moi, for example). I used to really like Cheez-Its, but of course now they’re out of the question. So I am pleased to say I’ve found something  to take their place: Cheese Ups!

I really like these snacks because they’re light but don’t sacrifice flavor. Just like in the picture, they are small, crispy, puffed out triangles with nothing in the middle. Their cheesiness is not overwhelming, it’s just right. And once you start eating them, you will be seriously tempted to eat the whole bag. I think at $1.99 per bag, they are well-priced in comparison to other wheat free snacks of the same size. Especially when you look at even the smallest bags of wheat free pretzels, which are always at least $5.
