Has anyone tried the Blue Diamond gluten-free crackers? I just noticed them at the store for the first time. I didn't buy them because the shared facility warning scared me. Anyone have luck with them? They look tasty.

I buy them and eat them. (Okay, well I used to before I got all the blah blah you can't have nuts crap from my doctor.) I am also super sensitive. If I even think about gluten I will be in a bathroom in half an hour wishing I were dead. That could be exaggerating just a little, but seriously, just a little.

I do tend to stay away from the shared facility items, but there are exceptions and these crackers were one for me and they will be again as soon as I'm allowed to add nuts back to my diet. I happily let my husband eat them. The difference between these crackers and say, Cheetos is that these crackers are tested to be gluten free. Every single production run is tested, so every batch falls under that 20 PPM.

When a company goes above and beyond to share that warning and the practices they go through to ensure a gluten free product I find it reassuring. This is far better (imo) than the random gluten free label with no warning that the facility also handles wheat products and leaves someone sick with no idea where it came from. Is it possible this product will contain enough gluten to make someone sick? Yes, but is their transparency about their practices that is reassuring to me and in my time eating their crackers I did not find myself sick from them.

I've tried them but to be honest could only have a few because I really dislike them compared to others. Perhaps if they were slathered in melted cheese... :P However, that is just a personal opinion so they are worth a try. Others seem to like them and have found them to be safe. I'm just used to homemade and therefore am a bit spoiled. :)

I do buy Blue Diamond Crackers and like them. But I think (so far) my absolute favorite crackers are Crunchmaster (especially the Multi-Seed Original or Sea Salt).

I like the Blue Diamond crackers, they're great with pepperoni and cheese for a party appetizer! I also, like the CrunchMaster crackers, just the plain ones and I eat them with homemade tuna salad instead of having bread. Wicked yummy, this is making me hungry right now!! 😃😃😃

As mentioned above, Blue Diamond crackers are great with melted cheese and other toppings because they bake well in the oven; however, Crunchmaster crackers are by far the best-tasting gluten-free cracker on the market. I personally prefer the roasted-garlic flavored ones. They usually cost only $2.99 for a good-sized bag, and you can find them with all the regular crackers rather than with the gluten-free varieties.

I love the pecan nut thins and they don't seem to cause me any issue. I like the taste of crunch master but find they have a bit of an aftertaste.
