Has anybody found a substitute for Goldfish crackers or Cheese Nips/Cheeze-Its? (Peppridge Farms I believe make them)

My son just loves these and obviously cannot have them any longer. Please let me know if there are any gluten-free alternitives out there :)

THANKS!

I saw a recipe for gluten-free goldfish crackers using chebe bread mix. It was on their website www.chebe.com under recipes. I believe you add chedder cheese to the mix and roll it out thin, and cut it into fish shapes (if you have the patience)

I haven't tried it, but it sounds good.

Crunch Toons are the closest I have found to goldfish crackers and they are gluten-free. I found them at my local Target store. Here is the website where you can check them out, they have original, cheddar cheese and nacho cheese flavor. I tried the cheddar cheese, they are shaped like tweety bird.

Jhmom, are you SURE these are gluten-free??? Sounds too good to be true, to this mom of a 2 1/2 year old who is NOT happy about giving up his goldfish. Please say it's so!!!!

Are they all gluten-free? (the flavors, I mean)

I was just coming on to say I bought a bag, then read the ingredients and wondered if anyone had talked to the company? There's caramel coloring, and natural/artificial flavors. I wanted to be sure this is really ok before I give it to my two year old, who doesn't get diarrhea or anything like that for me to be able to know if he's had a 'mistake' His only symptoms, which lead to diagnosis, were that he was very lethargic and literally starving to death (he looked like an ethiopian, honest to god) and I really don't want to get to that point again before I realize something is wrong. I was going to contact the company tomorrow but if anyone has already done this, or has eaten these things long enough to know (aka their body would've told them) they are truly ok that's good enough for me.

Please lemme know! Thanks!!

Hi Bridget

I am VERY sensitive too, even to the slightest crumb or cross contamination and did not have a reaction to them . I have not call the company to verify though.

I found out about Crunch Toons through another support group because the product was posted on the home page as a "safe snack" for Celiac's.

Maybe you should call the company just to make sure :D not unless someone else can verify this.

Ok Silly Yaks, it is a sad day for me.....I have bad news to report :(

Crunch Toons the popular gluten-free snack made by Poore Brothers is being Discontinued. <_< I just got off the phone with the company and they are no longer making them!! You still might be able to find some on the shelves of stores such as Target, wal-mart etc. The lady on the phone said that they freeze well, so you can buy a bunch and put them into the freezer, but they are no longer being made!! I personally am SAD, because I LOVED the taz shaped ones. I know they were also great for little celiacs!! Just when we find something fun, it gets discontinued!! DARN!

Oh almost forgot, the whole reason I contacted them was to get firm confirmation of the gluten-free Status. They are gluten-free!! So If you find them, freeze them!! haha

    • A quick perusal of Dr. Brownstein's website outs him quite quickly as a purveyor of pseudoscience. Though he may be an MD, he appears to have abandoned evidence in favour of selling stuff people don't need by making them afraid, using his authority as a doctor. Like all such individuals, what he says has some basis of truth (eg. hypothyroid disorders are quite common, the average North American has a terrible diet), but he twists it to create fear and take advantage of those who are less scientifically literate. Conspiracy theories abound to be found at: http://www.drbrownstein.com/dr-bs-blog/ Here is a criticism of his work: https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/does-your-antivax-doctor-have-another-agenda/
    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse. 
    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!
