Ian’s Gluten-Free Artisan Cut Italian Style Croutons

By | Jan 5, 2015

I feel like this happens to me all the time: I receive a gluten-free product to try for the blog, something in the nut or cracker family, and I immediately think, “Oh, this could be a good crouton substitute.” But I never get to try actual gluten-free croutons. Until Ian’s Gluten-Free Artisan Cut Italian Style Croutons (say that 10 times fast!) showed up at the office.

As soon as the box arrived, National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) Patient Education Manager Rachel Rieger and I tore open the bag of croutons, popping a few into our mouths to see how they tasted. Almost in unison, the gluten-free croutons received an audible “Yum!” from the two of us.

Conveniently, it was about noon and I packed a salad for lunch that day. NFCA Director of Communications and New Media Claire Baker typically eats a salad for lunch every day, so we both topped our meals with the croutons that had a perfectly-timed arrival.

I think the best review I can give these croutons is the simplest: they tasted like croutons. Slightly salty, a little garlic-y, perfectly peppered croutons. They had just the right crunch and were a good size (they are surprisingly large). I found myself wishing I had a can of tomato soup instead of a salad for lunch; Ian’s gluten-free croutons would top it perfectly!
