While I’m new to the Gluten Free game, I’ve already caught onto a few rules:
- Restaurants are “road games,” where your odds of winning aren’t always high.
- You’re almost always safe at home.
- You have to be on your toes at all times (labels… they must be read!)
- Your only as good as your team – as in your team of Gluten Free foods and snacks you stock up on.
While all of these rules are hard and fast, the last one might just be the key to winning. When we fill our kitchen with Gluten Free food, we set ourselves up for success. While trying and testing every gluten free product I can get my hands on, I’ve found one constant – If Glutino is on the label, I automatically buy it because I know it’ll be perfect.
The most recent Glutino product I’ve fallen in love with is their Gluten Free Pretzels.
Let’s just pretend my newest bag of Glutino Gluten Free Pretzels wasn’t beaten to smithereens. The two previous bags I’d bought… glorious, crisp, fresh-as-the-day-they-were-born bags. The one I choose to photograph and write a review for? More wrinkled than a octogenarian in Florida.
Eh, it doesn’t matter, though. The pretzels are the stars of the show and they’re addictively delicious. My whole family (even those who don’ t have to eat gluten free) loves these guys. They are almost more like yummy, fun-shaped little crackers than the skinny pretzels I knew in my former life, and (fortunately) they’re less salty.
When I first tried these gluten free pretzels, I realized how PERFECT they’d be with a honey mustard dip or a BBQ dip. I had a few bottles of Guy Fieri BBQ sauces on hand (which are outstanding, by the way), so I dipped some pretzels in the Bourbon and Brown Sugar, Carolina #6, and Kansas City flavors. They each made great, snappy little dips for the pretzels but I suspected that a great honey mustard dip would be even better.
While I have a favorite honey mustard dip I always make, I wanted to come up with a unique, extra-special honey mustard dip for the Glutino pretzels. I also wanted to (if possibly) work in some of Guy’s Bourbon and Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce because I was certain it’d play beautifully with honey, mustard, and the crispness of the pretzels.
I was right.
I’m minutes from posting the recipe for the Tangy Honey Mustard Dip (I’ll come back here and link to it as soon as I’ve posted it), but I just have to rave a little bit more about these gluten free pretzels.
As I said, they’re delicious straight from the bag, without anything extra. But, like all snacks, it’s fun to come up with different ways to enjoy them. Brands like Glutino make it possible for the Gluten Free crowd to keep enjoying food and, what’s more, to keep having fun with it. They also pretty much save the day when it comes to holiday cooking. I can’t wait to try these pretzels in my Christmas Strawberry Jell-O Salad and I’m 100% certain they’ll be awesome dipped in chocolate for Halloween.
If you have to (or simply choose to) eat gluten free, Glutino will make your life easier, more fun, and more delicious. Their gluten free pretzels are just one of their many excellent foods. I’ll be adding more reviews of Glutino products I’ve enjoyed… and, hopefully I won’t have beaten their containers up in the process.
Find Glutino Gluten Free Pretzels in your favorite grocery store or click here to buy them on Amazon.
I’m just anal enough to come back and replace these wrinkled pics as soon as I get my next crisp bag at the store. Watch, it will happen.
