In October when I attended the Expo in SLC I was able to try Breton crackers. They have two flavors. Skeptical by nature, I assumed these would be another cracker-wanna-be. I'm not saying there is anything inherently wrong with things like Crunchmaster or Mary's Gone Crackers, I buy and enjoy both products... it's just that they aren't CRACKERS. Not like most of us remember and desire.

 

Anywho, I was very pleasantly surprised when I picked one up and bit into it to discover it had the taste and texture of a Ritz-like cracker. Or more accurately, like Breton crackers. Of the two things I have missed, truly missed, it has been bread and crackers. It is sort of embarrassing to say, but I nearly wept with joy at discovering these. Only to find they were super new and no store anywhere had them.

 

Finally, one local chain has started carrying them and I finally got a box today. They were on sale for $3.49, usually $3.99 and they are the usual Breton sized box. One long sleeve of rather large round crackers. (I'm sure my husband will have a heart attack if I tell him, I didn't blink at the price, nor will I ever.) I can not express in words how amazing these crackers are. I am not surprised that of all the companies out there, cracker people figured out crackers.

 

Theoretically, Costco is supposed to also be carrying these. So I'll be watching my local store and hopefully we'll all be able to find them if we want them.

Addy, these are SUBLIME! What flavour(s) have you tried? Two of our stores carry them and since my discovery, I may have accidentally slipped 4 boxes into my gullet in a week. And there just may be 4 more in the pantry. Not for long, though! These suckers are marvelous, wonderful and delicious. I have never loved a commercial gluten-free product this much. Everyone, please eat them so we continue getting them!

I got those.  They are very normal cracker-like.  My hub really liked them.

I think they are good.   We don't always like the same crackers.  They are a nice large cracker.

I tried both flavors at the Expo. The only one they had at the store when I went today was the Herb and Garlic and they only had one box! GAH!!! I already have plans for all of the wonderful and amazing things I can do with crackers. Of course, those plans involve a box surviving 24 hours which until I am sated isn't likely. (I knew these existed, and had tasted them and waited 6 weeks to find them. Right now I'm pretty much a ravening beast.)

OMG!  I absolutely loved Breton Crackers.  I will wait impatiently for my store to stock them.  Maybe I'll put a bug in their ear, we had words about peanut butter earlier this year so they will want to shut me up quickly :D

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
