Nutty for’s Gluten-Free Snacks!!

In the last three years since going gluten-free, I’ve missed nuts. I don’t know why but I have a reaction to most commercial brands of nuts (every single time I would hear of a Celiac who can eat some brand of peanut – like Planters – I would get really excited that I’d go try some and get SOO sick!!). So in my busy life as mom, wife and editor, the search for nuts slipped through the cracks and I went without…. That is, until a couple of weeks ago when I found! And ohmigosh, this company (formerly is totally AWESOME!! has an entire Gluten-Free section on their website dedicated to GF nuts, snacks, chocolates & candies, GF flours (and more!) that are all CERTIFIED safe by the Gluten Intolerance Group!!! I was so excited to see this, I immediately purchased several items (cashews, peanuts, dried ginger and pine nuts). I made the order late in the day on a weekday and boy was I shocked when the delivery guy came to the door the VERY NEXT MORNING with my package!!! Practically 18 hours after the purchase was made it was on my doorstep!! WOW! And I only paid for regular ground shipping!

And everything was so delicious, I went through the one pound bag of cashews in less than a week. Um, yeah… I have to admit, I ate One Yummy Pound all by myself…. (Their marketing cracks me up: it’s not just “1 lb. bag” it’s a “One Yummy Pound” bag – I love it!!) So what did I do? Um, of COURSE I went back and ordered more! Oh, not one or two more orders, but THREE orders later our little family is swimming in Yummy Pound bags!! We’ve tried dried cherries, pineapple, banana chips, mango, sun dried tomatoes and pistachios. And I haven’t had a HINT of gluten contamination after eating anything! Whoot!

We’ve each made our own personalized bags of trail mix (we each have different faves, so buying the 1 lb bags – I mean, One Yummy Pound bags – was great. At first I thought a pound of each would hang around forever and possibly be wasted, but no, they’re all so good they’re gobbled right up!!) I also made GF Pasta (not from there, but Tinkyada rice pasta) made with some GFCF Pesto, mixed with the Sundried Tomatoes and their Toasted Pine Nuts. Ohmigosh, the whole family loved it so much we all went nuts — LOL:, that is!

Just remember to only order from the “Gluten Free” section of the site ’cause there are lots of things on that are NOT gluten free!! But everything in the Gluten-Free section on their website is safe because they follow these guidelines (from the website):

  • We analyzed ingredients, vetted suppliers, and got facility certificates ensuring non-contamination of ingredients and production aids.
  • We completely segregated our production lines to eliminate any possibility of cross-contamination.
  • We established policies and procedures to ensure compliance and randomly test products in our gluten-free production room.
  • Not only do we voluntarily comply with USDA federal guidelines, but we’re also certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.
  • We show the GF logo on each product page that is gluten-free.

In short, has great, safe, GIG certified gluten-free products, an easy-to-navigate website, super customer service, and a great sense of humor in their marketing. You need to check out out because it’s One Yummy Company!! 😛

    I get sick from Planter’s, too–I didn’t realize that was the culprit until I’d already been eating them for a week (bleaaagh…) and then belatedly did a deeper Google search than I’d done to begin with. So glad to hear I’m not necessarily allergic to a whole new food group! Thanks for the link! :)
