Crunchmaster Review and Giveaway

The contest is now closed. Congratulations to Bitt! You’ve won the crackers!

So, you might not have known this, but the kiddo wasn’t actually gluten-free and dairy-free until this past August. Oh sure, he ate all the GFDF food I made, and that was the only food I made. But, he also got to eat school lunch once a week, would have pizza with his dad, and loved his boxed mac and cheese. Let’s call him gluten-lite.

One of the concessions I always made for him was having crackers in the house. If there were pretzels, they were GF. But, crackers? No. Full on gluten, baby. That’s because he hated every GF cracker we tried.

But, now he is GFDF. And it seems to be helping his immune system. And there are no more concessions. So, when Crunchmaster contacted me to see if I’d like to sample their new 7 Ancient Grains crackers, I jumped on the chance.

The package arrived and I told the kiddo there were crackers to try. “Yay!” he said.

He ripped open the box, pulled one out, and gave me The Look. You know the one – the “Mom, I can’t believe you pulled a bait and switch on me; I’m so thoroughly disgusted with you” look. And, then he uttered the 2 most damning words in the history of kiddo cracker critique…. “Rice crackers.” The kiddo hates rice crackers. Capital H hates.

Ever the hopeful mom, I implored, “Just try it. It’s got 7 grains – SEVEN! It’s not just rice crackers.” (Okay, the first ingredient is rice – not that I admitted that – but they also contain sorghum, quinoa, sesame, millet, flax, and amaranth. Technically, I’d call some of those seeds, but let’s not quibble.)  Sneering, he took a bite. I waited, holding my breath. And, then he took another. And, another. Then he grabbed a handful. Then he gave me the super innocent, sweet 8 year old boy look and said, “okay, these are really good. You know WHY I don’t like rice crackers, Mom? Because they don’t have any taste. These have TASTE. They taste good!”

Whew. Kiddo stamp of approval.

And an empty box of crackers two days later.

So, if you have a persnickety cracker kiddo, or a persnickety cracker self, I urge you to give these a try. And one of you will get to try them for free! That’s right, Crunchmaster has graciously offered to do a giveaway for one lucky reader. Crunchmaster makes a variety of products, some of which are not dairy-free. So, if you’d like to try a variety, let me know. I can’t personally vouch for the other flavors – though if I COULD eat dairy, I’d be all over the new White Cheddar variety. Otherwise, you can get a gift pack of just the Ancient Grains version.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Go to Crunchmaster’s site and tell me one variety you’d like to try (and let me know if you want a variety pack or just the Ancient Grains). (required).
  2. Tweet about the giveaway. Mention me (@themommybowl) and a link to this post in your tweet. Something like:
    Want to win some delicious crunchmaster crackers from @themommybowl? Enter here:  #gf #vegan #giveaway
  3. Like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter.
  4. Leave ONE comment telling which of the 3 options you did. (I hate giveaways that make you leave separate comments. So, I’m not going to do that to you. Just leave one comment. I’ll put you all in a spreadsheet with an “entry” for each thing you did and randomize from there. So, it also won’t matter when you entered.)

The contest will be open until next Sunday (10/23) at midnight, CST. I’ll announce the winner on 10/24. Note that this contest is only open to folks in the continental United States. Sorry to all my far-flung readers.

Good luck!

    i’d have to just do the ancient grains since that seems to be the only gluten-free and dairy-free one. i hope they taste better than mary’s. not a big fan of those.

    Just noticed your note on facebook! You’re always a step ahead, I didn’t know Crunchmaster had new flavors. I probably would have walked right by the Ancient Grains assuming they weren’t gf. I’ll have to look for them. =D

  14. Ahh! I finally learned how to post a comment to your blog! Yes! I already like you, both you AND your facebook page. I would try the variety pack so I would know which crackers to go back and buy more of! Not quite ready to tweet.
