Yesterday, my shipment of Glutino Chocolate and Yogurt Covered Pretzels arrived! There has been quite a bit of buzz around this new product since the announcement was made in March on Food Biz Daily, so the second I heard they were available for sale on GlutenFree.com, I had to order some. Sam used to love the Pretzel Flipz back in his gluten days so I decided to wait and let him be the one to open the package and be the first sampler.
Now, Sam is only 6 so his taste-testing and critiquing skills are still rather limited, as is his database of descriptive words, so keep that in mind with his review (it’s a short one, LOL!).
Sam: GLUUUU-TEN, yeah, yeah, gluten!
Translation: The Glutino Chocolate and Yogurt covered pretzels taste just as good as the Pretzel Flipz in Sam’s memory!
My review: the Glutino Chocolate and Yogurt covered pretzels ARE good, however, they are kind of pricey after you add in the shipping costs. I ordered one 5.5-ounce package of each flavor from GlutenFree.com, each retailing for $5.99. After adding in the $12.00 shipping cost, each package essentially cost $12.00. I cannot wrap my brain around that, no matter how good they are. I would definitely buy these again, but I will wait until they are available in local stores. Until then, I will just keep making my own (with Glutino’s GF pretzels of course!). There is an added benefit to making my own too… I have to make them in order to eat them, so there is a built in “self-control” mechanism going on. When the Glutino Chocolate and Yogurt Covered Pretzels hit my local store shelves, I might be in trouble in the waistline department! 🙂
