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!
