Trader Joe Gluten Free Ginger Snaps

Recommended Posts

I show some gluten free ginger snaps at the Trader Joe's near my house. I was wondering if anybody has tried them and if they like them

They were sold out at the Union Square store in NYC when I went by yesterday... so somebody must be buying & eating them! I'm curious about these myself...

Well that's good to hear because I just went to Union Square today and bought a bag. I'm planning on using them for the crust of my cheesecake.

Hi All! I rec the TJ's flyer and hopped over there yest. Got the gluten-free ginger snaps and they are GREAT! I think they taste sorta like vanilla wafers with an edge at the end. I plan to stock up on these new goodies. Also tried the gluten-free granola. It was good too and I plan to get more. Wasn't aware that there was more than one kind......? Now I checked out those sour cream 'n onion rice crackers and their "disclosure" on the bag says that they are made on equip that processes wheat and I don't know what their policy is regarding cleaning their equip thus I am unwilling to try them at this point. I seem to be extra extra extra sensitive and it is not worth the trouble of a possible reaction....I have plenty of other goodies and crackers to eat. So run over to TJ's and enjoy their new goodies! I hope that maybe this is a trend for them to start offering more gluten free stuff instead of swinging the other way with their disclosures lately.......we'll see, eh? :D

P.S. I know this isn't the right area and I don't know how to start a new thread and the liberry will be shutting down very shortly.......but did anybody see the new book, "Gluten Free Girl" that's finally out? I just picked it up today at Borders. Plan to start it tonight. Just wanted to let you know that it's out now. Enjoy! :rolleyes:

I think most gluten-free cookies aren't worth the calories or the effort to open the box. These are the exception --they're amazing. They actually taste like a normal, very crisp cookie. I went back and cleared out the shelf (there were only three bags left.)

Also, the gluten free granola (maple cranberry nut), super good too.

I will probalby be in the minority here, but we did not care for the TJ's gingersnaps. They had an unpleasant aftertaste and mouthfeel. They were not horrible, but I won't buy them again.

I should mention, however, that I have found very few pre-baked gluten-free cookies that I liked.

I eat them all the time and think they are very good. I love finding gluten-free stuff at TJs because they are much more reasonably priced than anywhere else.

Sometimes we don't get to be too picky on taste, but I happen to think these are just as good as any!

We too didn't care from them. The 'bite' to them was too much for my DD and they made the roof of my mouth totally raw.

I still like the Pamelas chocolate espresso cookie

I use them all the time...they taste great but also work well for a cookie based pie crust...and as a topping on some baked deserts. :rolleyes:

Has anyone tried the gluten-free snickerdoodles by Enjoy Life? AMAZING! They are some of the best cookies I've ever had, and we love snickerdoodles. They are very soft and flavorful!

We have also tried the gingersnaps, and they are alright if you like gingersnaps but I am not a big fan.

Try the snickerdoodles, you'll be glad you did......

I love the Trader Joe's Gluten Free Ginger Snaps. Before going gluten-free I was never into ginger snaps but lately I love them. Although I love the Trader Joe ones, my favorite is still the Midel Cinnamon Snaps. I wish Trader Joe's would start making Cinnamon Snaps as well.

As for the Enjoy Life Snickerdoodles, I thought they had an odd taste to them, though they were better than the chocolate chip cookies I tried at the same time. Suffice to say, I haven't bought them since the first time I tried them (November 2007) as I didn't find they were worth the money.
