Has anybody found a substitute for Goldfish crackers or Cheese Nips/Cheeze-Its? (Peppridge Farms I believe make them)

My son just loves these and obviously cannot have them any longer. Please let me know if there are any gluten-free alternitives out there :)

THANKS!

I saw a recipe for gluten-free goldfish crackers using chebe bread mix. It was on their website www.chebe.com under recipes. I believe you add chedder cheese to the mix and roll it out thin, and cut it into fish shapes (if you have the patience)

I haven't tried it, but it sounds good.

Crunch Toons are the closest I have found to goldfish crackers and they are gluten-free. I found them at my local Target store. Here is the website where you can check them out, they have original, cheddar cheese and nacho cheese flavor. I tried the cheddar cheese, they are shaped like tweety bird.

Jhmom, are you SURE these are gluten-free??? Sounds too good to be true, to this mom of a 2 1/2 year old who is NOT happy about giving up his goldfish. Please say it's so!!!!

Are they all gluten-free? (the flavors, I mean)

I was just coming on to say I bought a bag, then read the ingredients and wondered if anyone had talked to the company? There's caramel coloring, and natural/artificial flavors. I wanted to be sure this is really ok before I give it to my two year old, who doesn't get diarrhea or anything like that for me to be able to know if he's had a 'mistake' His only symptoms, which lead to diagnosis, were that he was very lethargic and literally starving to death (he looked like an ethiopian, honest to god) and I really don't want to get to that point again before I realize something is wrong. I was going to contact the company tomorrow but if anyone has already done this, or has eaten these things long enough to know (aka their body would've told them) they are truly ok that's good enough for me.

Please lemme know! Thanks!!

Hi Bridget

I am VERY sensitive too, even to the slightest crumb or cross contamination and did not have a reaction to them . I have not call the company to verify though.

I found out about Crunch Toons through another support group because the product was posted on the home page as a "safe snack" for Celiac's.

Maybe you should call the company just to make sure :D not unless someone else can verify this.

Ok Silly Yaks, it is a sad day for me.....I have bad news to report :(

Crunch Toons the popular gluten-free snack made by Poore Brothers is being Discontinued. <_< I just got off the phone with the company and they are no longer making them!! You still might be able to find some on the shelves of stores such as Target, wal-mart etc. The lady on the phone said that they freeze well, so you can buy a bunch and put them into the freezer, but they are no longer being made!! I personally am SAD, because I LOVED the taz shaped ones. I know they were also great for little celiacs!! Just when we find something fun, it gets discontinued!! DARN!

Oh almost forgot, the whole reason I contacted them was to get firm confirmation of the gluten-free Status. They are gluten-free!! So If you find them, freeze them!! haha

    • Itchy skin
      Cool compresses may help a bit. Hot baths or showers used to really aggravate my itchy skin so go with warm or cool ones to see if it helps. Keep well hydrated both inside and out. Be sure to check and make sure any lotions you use are gluten free. Shea butter, olive or coconut oil may help. Since you say this is not DH, no blisters etc. I would not advise Dapsone. It is quite a toxic med but if you do talk to your doctor about it make sure that they do blood work before prescribing and frequently during the time you are on it.  Some celiacs have liver impact and Dapsone can be damaging to the liver. I also had both DH and the all over itchies. Being strictly gluten free and avoiding obvious sources of iodine like iodized salt or iodine in supplements will help you heal. I hope you get some relief soon.
    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
