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

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.recipezaar.com/recipe/Cheese-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.

The site the link attempted to access is named after the largest river in South America.

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.

    • Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles
      I have been gluten free now since February and I recently purchased a box of Marshmallows Fruity Pebbles and looked at the ingredients (which none indicated gluten content), but am just wondering if anyone has had a problem with them. 
    • Test Results
      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it. 
    • Gardasil
      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
