The folks at Crunchmaster recently sent me two boxes of their gluten-free crackers to try: Multi-Grain Crisps and Sea-Salt Flavor Multi-Grain Crackers.
The Crisps were the clear favorite among the Crispy Snacker Test Panel members. They have a pronounced sesame flavor and they were also judged to be the best-looking cracker with their small hexagon shape. I like that they contain a good bit of whole grains (amaranth, quinoa seeds and brown rice flour), flax seeds for a fiber boost (2 grams per 30 cracker serving, which sounds like a lot of crackers, but they are little and easy to scarf down).
The Multi-Grain Crackers were also good, though they were judged by my girls as not being as tasty as the Crunchmaster Crisps. This is probably due to the fact that they are a healthier chip: 0% saturated fat free, they have fewer calories than a serving of the Crisps and more dietary fiber (3 grams per 16 cracker serving).
Locally, Crunchmaster Chips are available at Wal-Mart Supercenter stores and at Dollar Rite in Queensbury (in the shopping plaza behind Toys R Us). You can download a $1 coupon at the Crunchmaster website and go try them out yourself, OR
