I have been eating some of these crackers and cookies for a while now. I thought it was about time I wrote a review. When I first went grain free and refined sugar free I had the hardest time finding items that I could purchase and eat right away without having to make something to go with it. I don’t know if you have ever had grain free items but many of them are not worth the package they are in. They tempt you with beautiful boxes and packaging. The items only let you down when you do actually partake in the item. Many of them are not worth the packaging they are in and taste worse than eating the boxes and labels themselves. Does the marketing world think we will eat anything? Or do they that are tastebuds are dead? Why would you even market an item that even dogs or bears wouldn’t eat?
It reminds me of the fashion industry that doesn’t seem to care about plus size women. Don’t get me started on that subject. Sorry, I digress. I tend to have a hard time sticking to topics. Now back to the review.
Grain free and refined sugar free items make you feel like you are winding up a Jack-in-the-box because most of the time you get a disappointing result only sometimes do you hit the jackpot and get a really tasty item. Why? Oh, Why? do some business marketers think that the public wants something to only look good but taste worse than cardboard.
Simple Mills has hit their products out of the ballpark. The crackers are crispy and crunch. My least favorite cracker that they make is Sundried Tomato and Basil. The crackers are crisp and crunchy. The flavors are very tasty. The only drawback I can see is the price. However, recently their Fine Sea Salt tastes like a saltine and I am glad to inform you that I have found them at Costco.
I also enjoy their Crunchy Toasted Pecan Cookies, they definitely taste like pecans and are a crunchy hard cookie. Many other nongrain cookies I have tried have a weird texture left behind and leaves an unpleasant taste in your mouth.
What a pleasant surprise that there is a nice amount of crackers or cookies for the price you pay. In my opinion, it is bang for your buck. Many times when buying grain free the price is inflated but there is a very small amount of the product to eat. It leaves one feeling as if they were conned.
So to Simple Mills, I commend you for taking the time to make yummy and tasty treats for those of us in the world who cannot eat grains. They don’t spend all their money on advertising or marketing instead they have spent their time on product quality and quantity. Way to GO Simple Mills!!
