Posted on | June 16, 2008 | 2 Comments
Mary’s Gone Crackers send me a sample pack of their crackers. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to think. I mean, I like healthy foods, but I am not a foodie by any means, even though sometimes I wish I was. These gluten free crackers almost looked too healthy and I was worried they would taste too healthy as well.
Boy, was I in for a surprise! Not only do these crackers look different than a traditional, flaky, starchy cracker, but the taste was completely unexpected. I found these gluten free crackers to be crisp and flavorful with wonderful texture and a strength to hold up under any type of spread or topping. They also did not have an unpleasant aftertaste, as some gluten free products do. My gluten consuming husband even likes them- especially the black pepper flavor.
I sampled three flavors:
Mary’s Gone Crackers Original flavor: A wholesome, hearty, whole grain flavor that pairs well with any spread. A great all purpose crackers that satisfies hunger in a yummy way. Definitely my favorite with laughing cow cheese.
Mary’s Gone Crackers Onion flavor: This cracker looks like the original flavor, but definitely has the aroma and strong flavor or onion blended in. It is good, but I was unsure what to pair it with. i htink twith his flavor, you will either love it or hate it.
Black Pepper flavor: This Mary’s flavor definitely has a kick- the strong black pepper really shines through and adds a punch for those that like a little something “extra.”
The Mary’s Gone Crackers website describes their crackers as “a crisp delicious cracker with a rich nutty flavor. Wheat-free, Gluten-free and organic. Made of organic whole grain brown rice, organic quinoa (keen-wa: a high protein seed/grain), organic flax seeds and organic brown sesame seeds, with no added fat. Surprisingly satisfying on their own or with your favorite toppings. Always hold their crunch; unlike any other cracker you’ve ever had–they will soon become a staple in your cupboards.”
I agree- these crackers are surprisingly different- and good!
Pros: Whole grain, doesn’t crumble
Cons: onion and pepper can be a bit strong for a more sensitive palate, you’ll either love these crackers or hate them.
Rating: 4 1/2 stars
