There are not many gluten free companies who make GF pretzels, but I don't think there is really a demand for it. Glutino has it in the bag (literally). They make the best pretzels out there and I really don't even realize I'm eating something that's gluten free when I snack on them. What's even more great about them is that they don't just have original pretzels, they have Peppermint Yogurt, Fudge, Yogurt (no image above) and their newest, Honey Mustard.
Honey Mustard: The pretzels are lightly dusted with a honey mustard flavouring. I like how they aren't overloaded by the flavouring and there is just enough to taste it. If you like honey mustard, you will surely love these. It reminds me of the days when I used to be able to eat fresh pretzels at sports games with mustard on the side to dip.
Fudge: Mmmm fudge...who doesn't like fudge? I'd have to say that these are one of my favourite gluten free treats on the market. I love the sweetness of the chocolate and the saltiness underneath. They have the perfect crunch to them too. These are definitely a special treat though, as the cost of them is a bit daunting - at $6.99 (CND) a bag.
Peppermint Yogurt: These are pretty wonderful. The smooth yogurt, chunks of peppermint and salty pretzel underneath create an amazing flavour for the tastebuds. They're also pink, red and white...perfect for Valentine's Day. I loved these, although they were very rich in flavour - which was good because I didn't have the urge to eat the whole bag.
A Valentine's Day idea for your gluten-free love: empty a bag of Glutino Fudge Pretzels into a mason jar and tie a pink/red bow around the top. A little bit of DIY + chocolate = a perfect, thoughtful gift.
