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

    • So I think my daughter is reacting to Dairy?  I only really removed it 100% from her diet for a few weeks and then SLOWLY let her have some because of how difficult it was to find substitutes she liked and she was still reeling with the emotions of being restricted from so many foods.  The smell amts of dairy we allowed had no adverse effect on her (so we thought) and her improvements were still so profound and immense we felt confident that dairy was not an issue. Cue the Cheerios.  We allowed her "oats" again and Cheerios require milk and within a week BOOM all her symptoms were back - difficulty swallowing, hearing issues, dh rash on her scalp, tired, confused. Naturally I accused the oats of being the devil! So that was a week ago that I figured out that oats were evil and have easily eliminated them as Cheerios were the only source. Well here I am and she is NOT getting better.  In fact...she is now having extreme SPD symptoms again.  Things are too loud.  Smells are too strong. Her clothes feel weird, her bedding feels weird.  This all overlapped with the onset of a pretty bad head cold so I tried to be patient.  But a full week later...I think it's the dairy? I have an apt with a Naturopath to test for food sensitivities and I am wondering about having the Dr test her scalp rash? Any thoughts?  Do we assume it's dairy or could a cold on top of an oat cross contamination still be causing problems?
    • Next time just take a box of rat poisoning and extract ONE granule.  Toss it into his food (while he is watching) and give it a good stir.  Hand the food over and see if he is willing to eat it.
    • Gertrude.....just a few comments after reading your posts..........no other disease but Celiac disease will cause a positive on the EMA test.  I have never heard of a false positive on that either.  It is a test that is done by hand and not by a machine because of the way it has to be done, so having a false positive is almost impossible.  Your doctor should have known that.  Many people trip just 1 or 2 tests on the panel and they have Celiac Disease.  With autoimmune testing, you can test 2 different people with Celiac Disease and they can have wildly different test results.  Couple those with a positive gene test and the likelihood of it being Celiac is almost 100%.  The fact that the doc didn't find villus atrophy just means the damage is not extensive enough for them to find.......yet.  I am sure they would prefer you to keep eating gluten until that happens but you do not want to do that.  So.........after you have been gluten-free for awhile, have them run the Celiac panel again to see if your EMA goes to normal, which it should if you eat very gluten free. With positive gene results, positives on your Celiac antibody testing, and positive dietary response, that is a diagnosis!
    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.
