Glutino Gluten Free Pretzels

I am in love with this particular type of pretzel, Glutino Gluten Free Pretzel Twists.  They are gluten and dairy free, making them perfect for my son.  Better than that, they are incredibly delicious.  A nice crisp texture that doesn't taste like cardboard, and just the right amount of salt to keep me coming back for more without overpowering the flavour of the pretzel itself.  I actually prefer these pretzels to any other brand, gluten free or not. 
 
My obsession has caught on, and now my mother has taken a liking to them, and she informs me that she's spread the love to her colleagues at work. 

In my opinion, this is what a great gluten free product should do: attract customers that are both gluten free as well as those who are just looking for a delicious snack and find that the product just can't be beat. 

I noticed when purchasing a few bags for the cottage that they now make pretzel sticks, as well as snack size bags that would be perfect for lunches or for packing as a snack.  A quick visit to their website and I found that they also make salt-free, sesame, and yogurt covered pretzels.  Options are always good!

Unfortunately, they are not cheap- often more than double what a regular bag of pretzels would cost.  For this reason, I have carefully rationed out my  son's pretzels in the past.

However, if you live in Ontario and are located close to a FreshCo supermarket, they consistently sell the product for approximately two dollars less than I've seen anywhere else.  At first I thought it was just a grand opening promo, but the price has remained low for a few months.  Definitely worth a visit if this product is on your wish list.  FreshCo has a small gluten free section, but it's worth a look for some other well priced products. 

I bought two bags this week.  I prefer them dipped in mustard, but I wouldn't judge you for dipping them in some pure dark chocolate either.  Enjoy!
