Breton

7 posts in this topic

In October when I attended the Expo in SLC I was able to try Breton crackers. They have two flavors. Skeptical by nature, I assumed these would be another cracker-wanna-be. I'm not saying there is anything inherently wrong with things like Crunchmaster or Mary's Gone Crackers, I buy and enjoy both products... it's just that they aren't CRACKERS. Not like most of us remember and desire.

 

Anywho, I was very pleasantly surprised when I picked one up and bit into it to discover it had the taste and texture of a Ritz-like cracker. Or more accurately, like Breton crackers. Of the two things I have missed, truly missed, it has been bread and crackers. It is sort of embarrassing to say, but I nearly wept with joy at discovering these. Only to find they were super new and no store anywhere had them.

 

Finally, one local chain has started carrying them and I finally got a box today. They were on sale for $3.49, usually $3.99 and they are the usual Breton sized box. One long sleeve of rather large round crackers. (I'm sure my husband will have a heart attack if I tell him, I didn't blink at the price, nor will I ever.) I can not express in words how amazing these crackers are. I am not surprised that of all the companies out there, cracker people figured out crackers.

 

Theoretically, Costco is supposed to also be carrying these. So I'll be watching my local store and hopefully we'll all be able to find them if we want them.

Addy, these are SUBLIME! What flavour(s) have you tried? Two of our stores carry them and since my discovery, I may have accidentally slipped 4 boxes into my gullet in a week. And there just may be 4 more in the pantry. Not for long, though! These suckers are marvelous, wonderful and delicious. I have never loved a commercial gluten-free product this much. Everyone, please eat them so we continue getting them!

I got those.  They are very normal cracker-like.  My hub really liked them.

I think they are good.   We don't always like the same crackers.  They are a nice large cracker.

I tried both flavors at the Expo. The only one they had at the store when I went today was the Herb and Garlic and they only had one box! GAH!!! I already have plans for all of the wonderful and amazing things I can do with crackers. Of course, those plans involve a box surviving 24 hours which until I am sated isn't likely. (I knew these existed, and had tasted them and waited 6 weeks to find them. Right now I'm pretty much a ravening beast.)

OMG!  I absolutely loved Breton Crackers.  I will wait impatiently for my store to stock them.  Maybe I'll put a bug in their ear, we had words about peanut butter earlier this year so they will want to shut me up quickly :D

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
