Review: Glutino Yogurt Covered Pretzels

Back in May I had the opportunity to sample Glutino’s Chocolate Covered Pretzels. I was in heaven! Since then, I have been coveting the yogurt covered version, but have not been able to find them locally yet. I know that several online venues sell them, however, the shipping cost seems really high to ship pretzels. As I mentioned in my review, it is $12 to ship 2 bags of pretzels.

Glutino has been around since 1983 when it expanded it’s presence in the USA’s gluten-free food industry. Glutino acquired “Gluten-free Pantry” in 2005 and the company’s products can be found in stores across the US. Glutino’s mission statement:

Quality, Service, Trust, and Variety

When I received the yogurt covered pretzels, I dove right in. I didn’t stop to take pictures – I had lost my mind! They were melty from the summer heat, so I tossed them in to the refrigerator and stood right outside the door thinking that might speed up the solidifying of the yogurt. A few minutes later, I couldn’t take it, I tore into the refrigerator to claim my treat. I was not disappointed. The balance of sweet & salty was like a well choreographed dance in my mouth. It was unfortunate that I had to share this bag, but I knew that I couldn’t sing the praises if I didn’t share the love. After serving these to non-gluten-free people, as well as Jon, it was decided that we need to find a local store to carry these, STAT!

The Glutino chocolate & yogurt covered pretzels can be purchased on glutenfree.com or in some stores across the US. I have yet to see them here in Columbus and I have been looking. I feel like a nut job scour the aisles for these pretzels. Can you imagine how hard it will be to contain my excitement when I do find them? I sure hope there is no hidden video footage of that anywhere.  Editing to add that I was just informed that these pretzels should be available at the Columbus Whole Foods locations by the end of the month!

  • My kids love the regular Glutino pretzels. So, are you gonna share when you do find them on the shelves in Columbus? Bummer that they melt when they ship them in warm weather. There was even a warning on the gluten-free.com site.

    Can't believe you blogged about this today. I bought my first bag of Gluttino pretzels yesterday. They now have them at Wal-Mart. Incredible. I can't believe it. They taste like "the real thing." Now to try yogurt covered ones. Thanks, friend.

    I'm going to request them the next time I go to Raisin Rack. They did a special order of something for me one other time (Udi's bagels before they started carrying them), so we'll see if they'll do it again… I'll keep you posted!

  • Wendy & Michelle – I just updated the post to say that I heard that Whole Foods in Columbus would have them by the end of the month!!

    Julie – So glad you were able to try them! :)

    I just looked up sodium hydroxide, an ingredient in these pretzels, and, it was listed as a DRAIN CLEANER, look it up in Wiki and see for yourself, thats why i'm posting so late, people who are feeding their kids this stuff, need to know.
