The Best-Tasting Gluten-Free Foods: We Put Them to the Test

woman eatingThe thought of going gluten-free used to conjure up images of an all-meat diet. Or, if you were a vegetarian, nothing but salads all day, every day. That's just not the case anymore. With so many people swearing off wheat, food companies have come up with more and more options. Problem is, not all of these gluten-free goodies are created equally tasty. And nothing's worse than buying something and realizing you can't bear to take another bite. So we took the risk for you. We sampled the most popular gluten-free breads, crackers, and cookies to find out which ones were worth adding to your shopping list.

What are your favorite gluten-free brands?

Pamela's double chocolate cookies are amazing. The other flavors are terrible though.

OK, wait. I wish people would stop using "gluten-free" as the newest health craze. The reason there are gluten-free products is that some people have a legitimate disease where they can't eat anything with gluten (a protein provided by wheat and grains). Morons who ramble on about going gluten-free as a trendy new "Atkins diet" are doing a great disservice to people afflicted with Celiac's disease. Knock it off already. This no doubt derives from some idiot not doing their research.

Kate, as a celiac, I don't mind people who use gluten-free as a diet. It leads to more GF products. In restaurants, saying you have a wheat allergy accomplished the same thing, without the negative associations. Sure, some people may think you're BSing, but they rarely matter.

I agree with Cass- the more people that jump on board with the 'craze', the more I benefit. :-)


And, Lucy's Chocolate Chip cookies aren't their best flavor- they have others that are better. The mint/chocolate ones they bring out at Christmas time are AMAZING! :-) Same with Schar- that isn't the best product they have... but some of their other stuff is awesome and I happily use it all they time.

If you are like me and love garlic, you are already too late.
Use the cultivator to make holes in the soil and turn it up just a
little between the rows. Grab a few bags of organic potting
soil and lean them up against the sunny side of your garage or a brick
wall of your home.

It currently has less than a 2% refund rate which means for every 100 people only 2 people request a refund. Andrews allegedly sold apartments of for a non-existent Turkish Mediterranean resort in partnership with his brother Nigel and sister-in-law Margaret. It is also possible that if CLASS recipients are eventually enrolled in AHCCCS (Arizona's Medicaid program), AHCCCS will benefit financially by receiving a share of the cash payment made by the CLASS program. Walk ins are always welcome, or patients can obtain same day appointments easily. The doctor will ask about symptoms of metabolic disorders such as fatigue, headaches, cramping, mood changes, shortness of breath, and chronic diarrhea.

To Kate--oh please. I suffer from IBS and already being on a gluten-free diet has helped my symptoms. Also, every person in this world has a stomach that is not meant to digest gluten, which leads to gas and the typical feel-bad symptoms. So don't hate on a healthy person going on a gluten-free diet. Even if they don't have celiac disease, a person can still benefit from a gluten-free diet. I'm getting pissed off at the people who act like people with celiac are the only ones allowed to be on a gluten-free diet. Get over yourself.
