Milton's Gluten Free Chips and Crackers Review and Giveaway

This post contains sponsored links. 


I had the opportunity to try out Milton's Craft Bakers Gluten Free Chips and Crackers.  Our family is lucky enough to not really have any dietary restrictions.  However, we love to try different foods.  I am trying to feed my family healthy foods, and get them involved in a healthy lifestyle.  I knew that with these gluten free crackers and chips, the biggest hurdle would be from my husband.  He is not a fan of gluten free foods at all.  As he tried these snacks with us, and happily munched them saying they were really good, that's when I knew they were a win for people everywhere.



I would love to share my thoughts on the pack I was given, and invite you to participate in the giveaway for the same Milton's Chips and Crackers pack I was given.



Nacho Cheddar Chips


A mixture of corn, brown rice, chickpeas, and lentils.  These chips are very crunchy and satisfy what I call the crunchy craving.  It's when you want to eat something, but also want the crunch to go along with it.  

The Nacho Cheddar chips have a medium dusting of non GMO cheddar and ancho chilis.   The chips have a very mild spice to them.  The cheddar flavor is not overpowering like some other nacho cheese chips.  It gives a nice amount of flavor, but still allows you to taste the flavor of the actual chips.  I actually like this, because I am able to taste the corn and chickpeas in the chips.  Those 2 ingredients are what stood out most to me.  I love the taste of the chips, as it reminded me of hummus.  Although we are these alone as a snack, I bet they would be delicious with some red pepper hummus.  

Sea Salt Chips


These are really good.  They have more of a hummus flavor with a bit of salt added.  If you like the mild flavor of hummus, you will love these chips.  They are crunchy and salty, but not too salty.   They have a mild but distinct taste of chickpeas.  The corn takes second place.  Then the brown rice and lentils are in the background as a perfect backup.  These, I'm going to say, are perfect for dips or just snacking by themselves.  
My husband says these are his favorite. 

Himalayan Salt Chips


The first thing I noticed with these chips was the mixture of the Himalayan salt and the very light hint of cumin.  The natural salt flavor stands out first, and then the mild flavor of cumin bleeds through.  I love that these flavors are very mild, and that they allow the chip to be the main focus.  These are amazing with hummus and dip.  Especially a 7 layer dip.  I can't seem to stop snacking on them, and my kids are surrounding me for more.  I think it's a winner in our house. 


Green Chili Salsa Chips


The green chili salsa chips have a quick bite of chili.  It's not spicy, but the flavor is instantly there.  It almost seems like my brain is waiting for the spice.  As if the taste is telling me it should be spicy, but instead I have the amazing flavor of the green chilis instead.  I love this one a lot.  

Red Chili Salsa Chips


I love spice.  These chips have a good amount of heat to them.  The perfect amount for those who love to kick it up a notch.  They have a hot pepper taste and heat that are perfect to satisfy that spicy craving.  
I was sad that these were my least favorite, as I love spicy foods.  They had a flavor that took me a moment to pinpoint.  At first I thought it was the peppers, but after reading the ingredients I figured it out.  It was rosemary extract.  I'm not a fan of that taste.  However, if you like the flavor of rosemary, as well as spice, then this will be one that you'll love.  


Multi-Grain Crackers




It took me a few chips to figure out the familiar flavor that hit me when I tasted the multi-grain chips.  

First off, these started off with a "Mmmmmm!!!  These are good!!!" from me.  Each time I taste a new flavor I am completely sure that bag is my favorite.  

These chips are baked, are thick, and are so crunchy.  The normal multi-grain flavor with that familiar mild flax seed taste.  As I looked at the ingredients I saw potato flakes, and the familiarity of those potato chips in a can came to mind.  It didn't taste exactly like those, so don't panic.  However, it was the slight potato taste that triggered that thought.  These are amazing with a hot tuna dip, as well as spinach artichoke dip. 


Cheddar Cheese Crackers




One thing I love is that the flavors are baked right into these crackers.  These are crispy cracker that are perfect mixture of a mild cheddar and a little salt.  They have a slight familiar flavor of a childhood favorite of my little square cheese crackers I'd eat by the handful, only these are so much better.  They have a real cheese flavor.  They have a taste of different grains.  However, they are not grainy.  They don't have that (no offense) texture where you say "these must be gluten free".  No.  These are a perfect snack for anyone, anytime.  

Crispy Sea Salt Crackers


I'm always surprised at how crispy these crackers are.  The sea salt crackers are surprisingly flavorful.  The real sea salt flavor pops.  It's not super salty like most crackers.  This is a flavorful flavor.  For those who have used sea salt, you will understand when I say it's a taste of real salt.  It allows the flavor of the grains of brown rice, rice, oats, and corn, as well as the potato flavor to shine.  

Everything Crackers




In my opinion, these would be best with cheese and salami.  These crispy crackers have a variety of caraway, black and white sesame seeds, poppy seeds, quinoa, garlic, onion, and other spices.   The caraway is what stands out to me the most, and what I think would actual pair well with cheese.  These would be my favorite as an appetizer cracker.  The taste is great, and would pair well with other foods on an hors d'oeurve platter.
