Product Review: Trader Joe’s Savory Thin Mini Edamame Crackers

Last time I was in Trader Joe’s I was getting the kids a sample of some biscotti (not gluten-free).  The nice man who was manning the “kitchen” area where they make the meals & samples asked if I wanted some biscotti.  I told him that I had to follow a gluten-free diet and he directed me to several new products!  These mini crackers were one of those products.




I wasn’t sure what to expect with these crackers, but they are really good.  They have a great crunch to them and they don’t crumble.  They are seasoned, though I can’t put my finger on what they taste like.  Definitely tasty, though.  They would be great dipped in hummus, ranch, dill dip, crumbled on a salad, with soup, the possibilities are endless!  I also picked up a Red Pepper Spread with Eggplant that I will be reviewing soon that they are great dipped in!!  If you have a Trader Joe’s close by, give these babies a try!  There are a couple other cracker thins they have that are gluten-free as well.  Gotta love a store that really goes above & beyond for those of us who have to follow this diet.  🙂 

Exciting Times!

While out running our errands this morning, we stopped into the Holiday Baking Company.  I had first happened upon this place back in March when driving to the library & stopped in to check it out.  I had never been into any bakery that made gluten-free products until that day.  Jon had a couple dollars burning a hole in his pocket, so he wanted to pop in and get a nice gluten-free treat.  He chose an amazing Cappuccino Chip Muffin.  YUM!!  While we were there we found out that the bakery is going completely gluten-free in early July!!!  OMG!  This is so exciting!  Lisa, the proprietor, told me that one of her employees was just diagnosed with Celiac.  I noticed that the selection of gluten-free baked goods way outweighed the non-gluten-free options.  They now have 12-inch gluten-free pizza crust & foccacia bread.  They will have hamburger buns starting tomorrow.  I can’t wait to go back in next week to give those buns a try!  🙂 

If you are in or near the Columbus (Worthington) area, make sure to check this place out!!
