Almost Goldfish...

Do you remember those little bright orange goldfish crackers from gluten-consuming days?  Who doesn't, right?  And they seem to be a childhood staple--one that my children have had to do without.

A few weeks ago while perusing a new section at Safeway that was emblazoned with large signs on each side declaring it to be gluten-free I found a small package of cheese crackers by Schar.  Of course, we had to try them.

As you can see, we didn't wait to take a picture before opening the package to try them.  Nope, these obviously aren't goldfish.  They are conspicuously minus that goldfish shape.  They also aren't as orange.  However, apart from that, they taste very much like a milder version of that cracker many of us grew up with.

When I gave Mercy her first one her response was "mmm, that's a treat!"  But she hasn't been quite so enthusiastic since.  I suppose that's alright--more for me!
