***This review is specifically about the company’s Super Seed crackers.
On the Paleo diet or especially for those who are going gluten-free, it can be difficult to find snacks that don’t have ingredients we are avoiding. As I was perusing the Natural Foods area of my local Wegmans (best supermarket ever, btw), I noticed Mary’s Gone Crackers Super Seed variety. I grabbed a box after reading the label.
These crackers are not the prettiest things around, but they taste great. They come in some different flavors, but I prefer the plain super seed crackers. I don’t have a dairy sensitivity so I put cheese on them occasionally. More often, I use them to go with one of my Paleo dips. Did you know you can make a Paleo compliant artichoke dip? YUM. Find out more on my pin here.
For all of you out there who are avoiding certain things, Mary’s Gone Crackers are all organic, gluten-free, non-gmo, whole grain, kosher, both peanut and soy free, plus are vegan. What more could you want from a cracker? But there is more! According to the nutrition information on the side of the box (I’m an ardent label reader), the crackers provide 450 mg of omega-3 acids per 30 gram serving. That’s about thirteen crackers, by the way.
I see absolutely nothing in the list of ingredients or the nutrition information that causes me alarm, and I’m pretty thorough when purchasing food. The products are also ethically produced, so don’t worry about some poor Chinese boy killing himself just to put food on his family’s table. Believe me, there’s still a lot of that. I hope I don’t get sued for that opinion.
Right now the company makes crackers, cookies, and pretzels. I’ve tried the pretzels too, and really liked them. I love pretzels, but it’s not easy to find a brand that’s Paleo-compliant. There are more products on the way, according to the brand’s website.
For me, finding an easy snack that’s still delicious but sticks to my diet is a great thing! Do you eat Mary’s Gone Crackers? What do you think of them? Tell me in the comments!
