Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo Recap (SF 2014): Snacks
I tried many gluten free, nut free snacks at the GFAF Expo in 2014. These two were some favorites, I updated this post on 4/26/16 and deleted one company that went out of business.

The Real Deal Natural Snacks makes the best Cheese Crunchies. I confirmed with Real Deal by email that their company’s facilities and equipment are nut free and the package is labeled gluten free. The Cheese Crunchies has a wonderful texture and flavor and my boys loved it, they kept looking through my bags of samples in hopes of finding another Cheese Crunchies! Sprouts Market had a huge display set up like a farm stand and passed out these samples, so now I know where to purchase them in my area (brilliant!). I also picked up a sample of the Real Veggie Chips, the plain ones were ok.
Van’s Natural Gluten Free Crackers Say Cheese! (affiliate link) Light, crispy, cheesy, gluten and nut free. My son loves these from trying them at our local food allergy walk and the ladies at Van’s let me have a handful of samples and coupons as I know these will be a regular addition to our pantry. They also passed out Van’s snack bars which contain nuts but the crackers are made in a different facility. Update: Van’s now offers the crackers in single serving sizes too (5 snack bags in one box).
P*DE*Q makes gluten free tapioca based cheese bread, which is an irresistible hot, chewy, cheesy, and super delicious Brazilian style snack. My son that loves cheese and would love them but I will have to wait to purchase for my family until he outgrows his egg allergy. I didn’t check whether there is any risk of cross-contact with peanuts or tree nuts, but it is worth finding out. Read my update about them from WFFS16.
Because there is so much to share about the expo, I’ve created separate mini-posts:
