Mary's Gone Crackers Review

I've been trying to eat healthier for two reasons: My allergies are bad, and I need to loose weight. Much of my diet consists of kale, collard greens, plainish meat, other veggies and fruit (mostly) berries. When I want a snack I pull out gluten free crackers, or chips to eat. I've been pretty successful in eating this way.

Why Go Gluten Free?

There are a variety of reasons. I work with a lady that is prone to get Celiac Disease. It's a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats. I don't have Celiac Disease, but I am miserable all the time with allergies. I'm not just talking about seasonal allergies. My stomach is in shambles often. I've gotten testing done, and they couldn't find anything. Therefore I think it's best to try and be as healthy as possible.

Mary's Gone Crackers

I was super excited a few weeks ago when I found out I won my choice of crackers from Mary's Gone Crackers. All of their products are gluten free. If you haven't tried their products, you should. They have a variety of crackers, cookies, crumbs, and pretzels.

I chose to try out their new crackers Hot 'n Spicy JalapeƱo. Other flavors of crackers that they have are: Super Seed, Original Seed, Onion, Caraway, Black Pepper and Herb. They all sounded good to me! Their crackers are more of a rice cracker. I wanted the crackers to be something I could enjoy without my oh so hungry boys eating them down. They eat anything and everything, but do not like spicy things.



Since I mentioned that I was going to blog about their products, they asked me if I'd like some of their cookies, or pretzels? I went with Double Chocolate Cookies. They are good. I have shared them. The boys gave me their thumbs up!

Other cookie flavors besides the ones that I reviewed are: Ginger Snap, Chocolate Chip, "N'Oatmeal" and Raisin Cookies.



I had some of their pretzels already. They don't taste like the standard pretzel. Just like with their crackers, their pretzels have more of a rice flavor. I've only had their Sea Salt flavor. Other favors are: Chipotle Tomato, and Curry.


This is a plate of crackers and pretzels.

Ingredients:

All their ingredients are organic, gluten free, non-gmo, whole grain, vegan and kosher. They list each and every ingredient on their website for each food they sell right on their website, which I happen to love.

Extras:

Mary's Gone Crackers also sent me coasters. These are not typical coasters. They are made out of biodegradable paper. Inside the paper is wild flower seeds! How cool is that? I just love it



They gave me a pepper pen, which fits my bright kitchen. I have pepper colors in there.


A bottle opener, which is always handy.


Toothpicks, which are also useful.


My favorite extra was the Keen water bottle they sent me. I've used it every day.

I would try them, because some of the flavors are things I really like. But Walmart must not carry them as I have never seen them. Our other grocery store doesn't, I'm sure. Maybe I will buy some on line and try them. Especially the curry.

It's great that you're eating healthier! I'm sure that will certainly help with your allergies, and I find that eating healthier gives me more energy too :)

Gluten free is so popular now. It doesn't hurt to eat healthy in any situation, that's for sure. I love the name of this brand, it makes me laugh. :)

These sound like really tasty snacks. While I am not actively trying to go gluten free, I think cutting it out when possible is a good thing!

Sounds like a great selection to try out... and that was awesome they sent you extra for review. I think it is funny you went with spicy to be able to enjoy without the boys inhaling it - I know how that is ;)
