I think if someone decides to make these and market them, they will become instant millionaires. I do not believe they exist :(

Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!

Seriously, I wish someone would make them commercially. This is the one product I have not been able to find gluten-free. I make them at home with a little goldfish cookie cutter, but they are very labor intensive.

I use a variation on this recipe:

http://www.recipezaa...eese-Nips-42889

But I just use 1 cup of whatever similar rice flour/potato starch blend I have made up. I also reduce the salt a little and sometimes I don't include the pepper.

They are really good!

ETA: It is easiest if you use a food processor to shred the cheese (pre shredded does not work well because of non-clumping additives.) Then use the food processor to then combine all of the ingredients into "cheese product." :lol:

I find they need to bake much longer that stated in the receipt, more like 8-14 minutes depending on how thick they are. The thicker tend to puff up more and look like goldfish.

There is a company that makes gluten-free bunny cookies, they are like the cookie goldfish they used to make (or maybe they still make them?) Anyway, they are chocholate and vanilla mixed into one box. The company is Annie's, maybe they will work on a cheese bunny. Maybe this would be a good substitute and the other kids would want his cookies?

I'd never thought about making them! Do you think soy cheese or something similar would work too? My boys can't do dairy. Also, where did you find the little fish cookie cutter? My boys would be THRILLED if they could have fish again!

I have no idea if soy cheese would work, but you could try. To give it the best chance of being successful, I would shred your own block of soy cheese (just like I recommended with the regular stuff) and not buy the pre-shredded.

This is the cutter I bought. It is the tiniest one I could find. Raw, they are bigger than goldfish, but when cooked they are almost as small. Good luck and please report back, I have been wondering about soy cheese as I am concerned we might have to go casein free in the future.

This is the closest thing I could find out there. It more like a " cheez it" than a gold fish. I too have a preschooler and he really likes them.

I noticed that Annies Homegrown is now making gluten-free bunny cookie snacks so hopefully they'll come out with some cheese snacks soon.

I also came across these today and thought they were very close to a goldfish as far as the texture goes.Still no fun fish shape but at least they are bite size.

We have a gluten-free specialty store here in AZ, that's where I found them but it looks like they can be purchased online as well.

Blue diamond cheese flavored crackers are yummy. My kids love em. Maybe close to gold fish. They look like chips. :)

Im a bit late to the game on this, but I found a snack called "Cheeze-ups" by Wellaby. They taste just like cheeze-its/gold fish and are amazing! No cute fish shape, but really very good.
