More Mainstream Options for Gluten-Free Crackers Appearing on Store Shelves

Gluten-free cracker options used to be pretty slim. My favorites were Blue Diamond Nut-Thins. Glutino also makes a ton of different cracker options, as do CrunchMaster and Mary’s Gone Crackers. However, all of these options are quite pricey, typically ranging from $4 to $7 a box.

Lately we’ve been seeing more mainstream companies offering gluten-free crackers at much lower prices ($2.50 to $3.50 a box). Some examples:

  • Rice Thins Brown Rice Crisps and Crackers made by Christie. (These are our favourite, especially the Smoked Bacon and Gouda flavor!)
  • Breton now offers gluten-free crackers (available at Costco and most major grocery stores).
  • We’ve also heard that gluten-free Goldfish crackers are now available in the United States. We’ve e-mailed Campbell’s (who distributes the product in Canada) to ask about bringing them north of the border, but they’ve stated that market demand is not high enough. We’re hoping that will change soon! You can contact them at this site to request the product.

A final note: You might have seen ads for Triscuit brown rice crackers. These crackers are not gluten-free, although they do contain brown rice as an ingredient.

If you’ve got more gluten-free cracker suggestions, we’d love to hear them!

    I just tried the Breton crackers from Costco and there are the first cracker that actually tastes like the non gluten free version. I’m sure taht they will become a staple for me!

      That’s exciting news! We picked some up last night but haven’t tried them yet. Looking forward to taste testing even more now 🙂

    The Regular crackers with flax are good – I’m not a huge fan of the Herb and Garlic ones!

      That’s kind of funny – in our house it’s the other way around 🙂 Both are really good with cheese, too!

    Oh I’m loving the GF Breton crackers, both flavors! I wish Christies would come out with a GF saltine, that Campbell’s will hurry up and bring us those Goldfish and since I’m compiling my wish list, GF Ritz would be great! I will be south of the border next month, I will try to find them and maybe bring some home.

    The Sobeys on Mumford has the Breton Crackers… on a stand near the freezers in the far back corner… 🙂

      Good to know! We’ve seen them in a few stores too 🙂

    I bought some packs of GF Goldfish crackers in the Sherwood Park Costco a few months ago. Went back a few times, because they are so good my grandsons and I ate them in a hurry, but now, as often happens with Costco, they don’t have them any longer.

      Wow that’s great! We’ll have a look for them here also. There is a request form you can fill out in store to get specific items in – you might want to try that. 🙂

    just bought the Breton Gluten Free crackers from Costco and have tried the Herb and Garlic ones so far. I love them! They are very light and crisp, with a light buttery taste. Almost like what I remember Ritz to taste like, light and buttery. I agree on the Ritz and Saltines GF!
