A packet of Nairn’s Glutenfree crackers will set you back around £1.50 – £2, depending on the stockist, which makes it around 30p for a gluten-free snackpack – excellent value for money. The individually wrapped packets prevent food waste and keeps crackers fresh for longer whilst also making it a convenient size to slide into a lunch box, handbag or jacket pocket.

For those following a strict gluten-free diet, it’s a convenient and discreet way of taking along your own crackers to a social event where the normal serving may not include a guaranteed gluten-free option.

Wholegrain, healthy gluten free crackers may seem like a small thing, but when I found myself looking for a gluten free cracker that I would happily eat and serve on a cheese board that I can also pack into a school lunchbox or a backpack, Nairn’s wholegrain crackers instantly became a top choice. Healthy wholegrain, sugar free, sustainably sourced and eco-friendly, it’s the cracker that has it all, including great taste.

It doesn’t taste like a gluten-free cracker, I couldn’t tell the difference between Nairn’s gluten-free and standard range of crackers, just as it should be. Highly recommended.
