I received this complimentary snack mix from El’s gluten free snack company.
This mix offers great variety! It contains pretzel rods, textured flaxseed chips, bagel chips, and corn nuts.
This certified gluten free snack mix has great, robust seasonings such as paprika, black pepper, chili powder, cumin, and thyme. These flavors combine well to offer a “zesty” taste with a bit of heat. I am sensitive to spicy foods, and this offered just the right amount of heat. Enough to add to the flavor, but my mouth was not on fire.
The mix is a bit on the hard and crunchy side. I didn’t feel like I was going to lose a tooth, but the texture was similar to a cookie that has been overcooked.
An added bonus – the recloseable package keeps this mix fresh for days.
Rating: 4 stars
Pros: Great flavor and variety
Cons: The mix might be too crunchy for some people
