Get ready to die & go to heaven. If you think we are kidding, go to the store right now & grab a box of Breton Gluten Free Crackers & you will soon taste for yourself the deliciousness that it is. We tried these crackers at the Gluten Free Expo but it took our local grocery store a few months to get them in. Are you like us & have missed the soft crackle of biting into a Ritz or your favorite gluten cracker? We have been on the lookout for a soft, crunchy, texture in our snacks. Seriously I feel like when I bite into some gluten free pretzels or crackers my teeth will break, they are that crunchy!
But then we found them. I think the guy at the booth thought we were crazy. I swear our eyes were glistening with tears & I’m pretty sure he wasn’t a gluten free-bee because it was like he couldn’t understand our liberated excitement. I’m sure if he was confined to teeth breaking snacks, he too would be wanting to share this new found love with everyone. No? Maybe that’s just us!
The downside is that they are nearly $5.00 for a box and half the size of their gluten counterparts. We just eat them sparingly (by that I mean we try and fail to eat them sparingly) and make them last longer so we spend about the same amount on them in a week as we would on gluten crackers. I don’t know if that’s really a justifiable rationality but it works for us! Haha!
For those of you who can’t find these locally, here’s a link for a six pack of Breton gluten free crackers– get the Garlic & Herb (trust me, you will be glad you stocked up). We always try our hardest to find the cheapest deal for you & this one is cheaper than what we pay ($3.56 a box as opposed to $5.00!)
I am obsessed with Brenton crackers and had to stop eating them since becoming GF. Seeing these makes me excited.
Breton makes the best crackers! We were bummed when we had to stop eating them too! They certainly mastered their GF recipe! You can’t even tell they are gluten free!!
Which grocery sore did you find them at?
We got ours at our local grocery store that has a pretty big selection of gluten free items. It’s called Macey’s Grocery. They are here in UT.
Thanks! I’m in SLC/Taylorsville, so I’ll be sure to check for them the next time I go by Maceys!
Oh that’s awesome!!! Call ahead just to make sure 😉
I bought these crackers at Costco and they are the best! The closes thing to what I remember a gluten cracker was like. I hope I costco will be stock them on a regular basis.
I agree! I had no idea that Costco carried them! I will have to try our’s and see if they do!
It unfortunate that they contain cornstarch. Too many gluten free products contain ingredients derived from corn. I am finding out the hard way that corn is just about as harmful as gluten. I do admit these crackers are awesome but unfortunately off my shopping list.
Yeah there’s a lot of controversy out there about corn. I guess we all just have to find what works for us 🙁
I discovered I was allergic to gluten 5 years ago after spending 2 years of extreme itching on certain areas of my body. I had no idea what gluten was until my allergist explained it to me. I was 61-years-old at the time and could not understand how I could be allergic to gluten at my age when in fact I was able to eat anything and everything until then. I had a difficult time finding foods that were gluten free. Crackers, cereal cookies and breads tasted like they were made from sawdust. I then watched a TV ad 2 weeks ago about Breton gluten free crackers. I bought my first box of the Original with flax. I could not believe how great they tasted and how they tasted just like crackers with gluten. I love snacking on crackers with various toppings and this now has made it a lot easier for me dealing with my gluten allergy. I now challenge Breton to produce more products that are gluten free. Kudos to Breton.
Agreed that these are the best GF crackers I have ever tried. My husband who is not GF liked them over the wheat version. Could not believe how long it took me to find in norther LA. I discovered these over Christmas while on travel and had been searching locally ever since (not daily but when I would be doing errands). The online sources were sold out (rightfully so since they are sooo fantastic!) Gelson’s Market just opened a new location in late March. Ta Da! They are my new best friend.
I am not gf, but l love these crackers and pretzels
That is awesome to hear! Proof that gluten free food CAN taste the same if not better than gluten-filled food!!
