Honest reviews of gluten free products for a tastier life

Product Review: Mary’s Gone Crackers Sticks n Twigs gluten free crackers

Posted on | September 2, 2008 | 4 Comments

Mary’s Gone Crackers sent me these gluten free crackers to try out in the following gluten free flavors: sea salt, chipotle & tomato, and curry. I thought the flavors sounded unique and was curious what they would taste like.

Fresh out of the bag, I took the above photo. Quite honestly, I thought the chipotle tomato ( reddish) and curry (yellowish green) flavors looked really unappetizing and gross- the weird colors and lumpy shapes did not appeal to me at all.

All three flavors provided a satisfying crunch like a pretzel, with very little crumbling. Some pieces were almost hallow, like they took the circle of the original crackers, rolled them up and repackaged them. These seem ideal for travel and snacks on the go and would also be perfect for dips and appetizers.

This is what I thought of these three flavors:

Mary’s Gone Crackers Gluten-Free Sea Salt Sticks & Twigs: These, I actually really, really liked. The taste and texture closely resemble the Mary’s Gone Crackers original flavor with the added sea salt flavor. I felt the sea salt enhanced the natural flavor of these hearty and healthy tasting crackers, and was a winning combination. Rating: 4 1/2 stars

Mary’s Gone Crackers Gluten-Free Chipolte Tomato Sticks & Twigs: This flavor tasted a bit spicier, but I really couldn’t place it- it didn’t seem like tomato, and the chipotle was mild, but lingering- very intriguing. To me, this flavor was “ok”. Rating: 2 1/2 stars

Mary’s Gone Crackers Gluten-Free Curry Sticks & Twigs: Ok, if you like curry, you might like these. Unfortunately the color and appearance of these crackers looked so unappetizing that I am sure it affected my perception of the flavor. I didn’t like them at all, even though the curry wasn’t overpowering. Rating:¬† 1 star

Have you tried these gluten free snack crackers? What did you think?

Edited after publication . . I reduced the rating of the curry and chipotle flavors one star  because the more I thought about it, the more I realized I really, really did not like them. The revised rating accurately reflects that.

    I think Mary’s Sticks N Twigs are great. I have tried all three flavors, but I prefer the Sea Salt flavor the best. I especially like these because they are the only snack food on the market that is made is made from organic, whole grains. There is no white flour, no trans oils and they are not fried. I do not eat snack foods because they are either fried or made with white flour. I guess if a person is content with eating unhealthy inadequate food just because it tastes good, then this would explain why they do care for Sticks N Twigs. I care about what I put into my body, and I like the taste of Sticks N Twigs and don’t feel like I am poisoning my body by eating them. Who cares what they look like as long as they are healthy and tasty.I highly recommend this snack food and give it a 5 star rating.

    Welcome Sandra! I am glad you like them – I just love sharing what others think of the different GF options out there. Thankfully, you won’t find any products with white flour here since it is a gluten free site. :) Although I must disagree, I think you can not like this product and still care about your health. I am just thankful that we have more and more high quality gluten free products to choose from! GF options have come a long way in the three years since I have been gluten free!

    I liked all 3. My mother always told me “Don’t trust anyone who spells “hollow” as “hallow”.”
