Gluten Free Goldfish? Cheez Its? Anything?
0

10 posts in this topic

Before following a gluten-free diet, I was widly obsessed by any baked snack crackers of the CHEESE variety. Since being diagnosed with IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) a year and a half ago, i've made diet modifications to restrict gluten completely.

 

I've made the gluten-free Cheez its from this recipe, http://xobakingco.com/2012/12/26/gluten-free-cheese-crackers-like-cheez-its/

 

Though they are good, they take a lot of time to craft and then bake, and once again they are not the same. :(

 

Does anyone have any suggestions to something remotely close to a baked snack cheese cracker?!?!

 

So far, i've found Pirate's Booty cheddar and white cheddar varieties to be palatable. But still.. :(

Hi! I haven't found anything really close to Cheez-its or goldfish, I have stiil found some pretty great cheddar snacks! 

 

Crunchmaster's multi grain white cheddar crackers and their kids cheezy crisps are both really good!

Foodshouldtastegood's Cheddar crackers/chips are DELICIOUS.

I haven't tried these yet, but Glutino makes a cheddar cracker that looks like a ritz. I've tried the original and they were really good so I bet the cheddar would be good too! 

Blue Diamond makes a cheddar flavor of their Nut-thins that's pretty good.

 

Hope this helps a little!

The Grainless Baker's cheddar crackers are PHENOMENAL. I've only found them in

one of my local health food stores, they're an uncommon product. You might want to

try just ordering them online. They're really the best cheese cracker I've had.

Thanks all!

OMG the Grainless Baker, my mom used their graham crackers as the crust for our Xmas Chocolate Pie! I think I will order them! :) Thank for all suggestions.

Schar makes a bite sized cheese cracker that my kids love, it is the closest to Cheez-its and Goldfish crackers that I've found. I just paid $2.50/bag for them at my local market.

I was looking for Crunchmaster and Schar today because those look like the best options, but couldn't find them in 2 different stores. :(

 

The Grainless baker actually stopped making their cheddar crackers recently, note the public outcry on their facebook. 

 

I'm current eating Glutino's Cheddar crackers -- no bueno, i figured they would taste like a Ritz with miniscule taste of cheddar. :(

 

Oh well, i'll keep making the ones from that recipe and begging Annie's to make gluten-free cheddar bunnies, because HOLY MOLY, those were the bomb before I became gluten-free.

I know this is a few months old BUT at walmart and my local store, HEB, they have Van's gluten-free Cheese Crackers and they are the closest thing to gluten-free cheezits I have found.  Taste is buttery and cheesy.  I have also tried the multigrain but they tasted a little plain, need a dip or something.

Have you seen the new "Goldfish Puffs"? I know they are not a cracker, but they are tasty and gluten free. Van's also makes a good gluten free cheese cracker.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
