When I first heard that Pepperidge Farm had made a gluten-free goldfish cracker I thought it was too good to be true. Then I found out that said cracker was being carried at Target, so I made sure to stop by when I was out running errands the following day. Sure enough, right there next to the regular Goldfish was this bag of gluten-free goodness:
The new Goldfish Puffs come in three different varieties:
- Buffalo Wing
- Mega Cheese
- Cheddar Bacon
My Target store only had the Buffalo Wing and they just happened to be on sale for $2.99/package. I am not sure if my store only carries the one variety because it isn’t a Super Target or varieties differ by location.
I couldn’t wait to dig into these to see how they taste! The Goldfish Puffs are larger than the original Goldfish and they are like a cross between a cracker and a cheese puff. I really liked the flavor and don’t think they are too spicy, which is something I was afraid of when I first saw the variety. I do appreciate the other two varieties being milder for gluten-free kids who just want to be like their friends and classmates.
Unfortunately I was unable to find any information on the Pepperidge Farm or Goldfish website regarding the new Goldfish Puffs. Here is a photo of the ingredient list on the Buffalo Wing variety:
