Yay for gluten free pretzels! This will be the first item in our Thanksgiving Box Giveaway!
First off, let me tell you about our favorite GF pretzels. Glutino Gluten Free Pretzels Twist & Stick. My brothers who are AVID pretzel eaters, prefer these over Rold Gold. Every time they are at my house & I have a bag open they DOWN them haha! They love the extra crunch that comes from the absence of gluten. The buttery taste is way more appealing & its less salty!
We have lots & lots & lots of jello at our Thanksgiving dinner. So I will be sharing two of my favorites during our Sigh of Relief series. This is my second favorite jello & yes, it has pretzels! So, naturally we had to modify this one & use GF pretzels. Just a tip: Make this the day of Thanksgiving. Gluten free anything has a tendency to get soggy. This lasted us the whole day but towards the evening it got a tad soggy.
