Gluten Free Hits & Misses - Volume 1
Here are a few recent "Hits" to get us started:
Udi's Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites are a definite HIT! Dude, they taste like 2-bite brownies! I currently need to buy more since I have been scarfing them down like mad! TIP: these are found in the frozen foods section of the health food store and should be kept refrigerated so they maintain their freshness. They are also soy and nut-free if this is an issue in your household.
Late July Organic Cheddar Cheese crackers. These were a HIT and a MISS for us. They were a definite MISS because they were in a gluten-free display at our local health food store and they are NOT GLUTEN-FREE. The display was mislabelled and I didn't read the ingredients before I purchased. My bad! The HIT however, is that, although my GF son cannot eat them, I can and they are super yummy!! Organic, no preservatives, non-GMO, etc. I would definitely buy them again as a snack for myself.
Daiya Margherita Pizza. OMG this pizza is amazing! A HIT all the way! I have to admit I was very sceptical the first time we had this. I was totally expecting something that looked like pizza and tasted like cardboard. I could not have been more wrong! We have had this twice in the past few weeks and my son is already asking to have it again! TIP: They also sell a small, personal-sized pizza that is perfect to send with kids when they go to sleepovers or birthday parties where there will inevitably be pizza. We already have one on hand for this scenario.
We will be trying a muffin mix today, as well as a new brown rice pasta. Wish us luck!
