Glutino Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Don’t these look AMAZING???  I’ve made chocolate-covered pretzels on my own since being gluten-free, but to be able to just open a box and enjoy will be so nice!  Glutino makes good products, so I’m sure this will be no exception.  I haven’t been a yogurt-covered pretzel fan in the past, but may have to try these, too.

No word on when they will appear on store shelves that I could find.  So if you hear of a date–or see them in your store, please post a comment and let me know!

Perfect Gluten-Free Lunch

Spring is here…well, mostly.  There’s still a chill in the air, so soup sounded good for lunch.  I do think this may have been the perfect lunch–or near-perfect.  I had some V-8 Tomato Herb Soup.  It was my first time trying this soup and I must say, it was really, really good!  It touts a full-serving of vegetables, which is hard for me to get because I really don’t like them–and no preservatives or artificial flavors.  While it doesn’t specifically say “Gluten-free”, there are no ingredients on the list that contain gluten.

So, tomato soup must have crackers, right?  My absolute favorite gluten-free crackers are made by Glutino.  They come in several flavors.  I really like the Cheese flavor, but today I chose the Plain ones (shown) for my soup. I crumbled several of these and made the awesome V-8 Tomato Herb Soup even better!  These gluten-free crackers taste almost like Ritz crackers–seriously!  My husband even likes them and he’s a pretty tough cookie!

Speaking of cookies…dessert was the new “Oreo-clone” cookie made by Glutino–the new Chocolate Vanilla Cream cookies.  They can definitely rival the K-toos.  In fact, I like them a little bit better.  And they’re about $1.00 per package cheaper (at least in my store).  I never cared for the chocolate K-toos–it’s just me–I know other people love them.  To me, the new Chocolate Vanilla Cream Glutino cookies taste closer to Oreos.  I do prefer the vanilla cream version of both brands–just a personal preference.

Top it all off with a glass of Mountain Dew and I’ve got to say, it was a really, really good lunch!

Let me know if you try any of the above products–I’d love to hear your opinion!
