Ok, this was the first gluten-free graham cracker I have ever seen, and I just had to try it.Â I found it tucked away on the bottom shelf of the natural food store near my home. And for $5.59 for a 6 ounce box- it better be good!
First of all, the packaging is very deceptive. The crackers are packaged in spread out stacks in a plastic tray for a total of 12 crackers. The crackers are aprox 3 or 4 inches square and are quite thick compared to a traditional graham cracker. Upon opening the package I was treated to a wonderful cinnamon smell that actually smelled like a cinnamon graham cracker. Yum!
I found the crackers to be crispy, but not brittle. The cinnamon flavor was perfectly balanced &Â not too strong, just right. The crackers are slightly sweet, just enough to make the taste pleasant. The texture was also great- not too crumbly orÂ gritty. The first cracker I ate,Â I thought it was wonderful. However, the more I ate the more that the “rice flour” flavor kicked in. (Really, it wasn’t all that bad, but I thought I should mention it)
Overall, I was happy with my purchase,Â I think these crackers are good for an ocoasional snack or maybe used in a recipe.
