Only one of us at THE NIBBLE follows a gluten-free diet, but all of us like to taste the products that are so good, no conventional eater would notice they were GF.

This week’s product selection is certified gluten free, but anyone at any table should be happy to eat them.

We present them in alphabetical order.

Several loaves of bread arrived from Canyon Bakehouse one Friday afternoon. Rather than have them sit all weekend, we asked if anyone wanted to take them home.

No one in attendance pursued a gluten-free diet, but our colleague Bingo Wyer volunteered.

“I almost didn’t take the loaves because I don’t typically buy white bread, and I have no gluten issues.

“And ‘Country’ as an adjective for white bread seemed a bit of an over-promise. However…

“They’re very good: a nice texture, good crust and very good flavor. I’m surprised: I really, really liked them.

“My favorite is the gluten-free Ancient Grain (photo #2). It’s dense and while it’s pre-packaged, sliced bread, it’s moist, tasty and has heft [i.e., dense, not airy].

“My loaves were happily turned into toast, French toast, sandwiches, stuffing and bread pudding.”

The line is certified kosher by Circle V (Vaad Hoeir of St. Louis).

A few months ago, Jane Bakes cookies were our Top Pick Of The Week. We ate all the traditional varieties, but had not yet tried the gluten-free cookies.

Not surprisingly, given the amazing quality of those first cookies, the gluten-free varieties are just as good:

  • Gluten-Free Amaretto & Oatmeal
  • Gluten-Free Double Chocolate
    You can buy them in bags, boxes (photo #3) or gift jars.

    These artisan cookies are pricier than some others, but the quality and experience are worth every penny.

    Our grandfather’s favorite cookie was Fig Newtons, and in our childhood, we enjoyed them together.

    Over time, as ingredients were perhaps downgraded and our palate was upgraded, we no longer ate them. We tried Fig Newmans, better but no cigar.

    Decades later, however, Pamela, the doyenne of premier gluten free baked goods, produced her own versions, Figgies & Jammies. And even with no gluten, they’re better than any other brand we’ve tried.

    Figgies & Jammies are made in four flavors:

  • Blueberry & Fig
  • Mission Fig
  • Raspberry & Fig
  • Strawberry & Fig
    The first three are also available in Big Fig bars, 1.41 ounces compared to .9 ounces for Figgies & Jammies.

    The line is certified kosher (dairy) by OU. Discover more at

    What’s a cross between a cracker and a chip? RW Garcia’s snack crackers, which can be eaten like a chip: from the bag or bowl, with or without a dip.

    Or, serve them like a cracker, with cheeses, spreads, or turned into a canapé.

    The crackers are all natural and gluten free. Each has added seed nutrition via a mix of black sesame seed, brown flaxseeds and chia seeds.

    Don’t choose; have them all:

  • 3 Seed Harvest Crackers (pumpkin and blue corn)
  • 3 Seed Kale Crackers
  • 3 Seed Sweet Beet Crackers
  • 3 Seed Sweet Potato Crackers
    The company also makes delicious Pulse Tortilla Chips, made with legumes and ancient grains. The chips are high in protein, high in fiber, and low in fat.

  • Black Bean
  • Lentil
  • Chickpea and roasted red pepper
    The line is certified gluten-free and certified kosher (dairy) by OU. Discover more at

    Stay tuned for more gluten-free favorites!
