    Snack away, friends! Snyder's of Hanover's gluten-free pretzels taste remarkably similar to their wheat-based offerings. We couldn't get enough of the Honey Mustard and Onion flavor.

    Lager

    Rather than replacing traditional malts, Omission beer adds an enzyme to break down and remove the gluten in the finished product. This process not only reduces the gluten levels far below the accepted standards for gluten-free, but also delivers a universally delicious product—it had our gluten-friendly friends fooled! Light and easy to drink, it's the quintessential cookout beer.

    Blonde Ale

    Let's be honest. It's not a cookout without a good beer, and the folks at New Planet know that better than anyone. Brewed with orange peel, sorghum, and brown rice, the blonde ale pairs well with lighter dishes, especially those with citrus.

    Raspberry Ale

    Light and slightly sweet, New Planet's Raspberry Ale answers the call when you are craving a fruity brew. Made with sorghum and natural raspberry preserves, it's mild enough to take you from appetizers to dessert.

    Tortilla Chips

    Tortilla chips can be tricky. While most are made from only corn tortillas, you run the risk of cross-contamination when they are not processed in a strictly gluten-free environment. These tasty tortilla chips take the guess work out of your Mexican splurge.

    Ice Cream

    All of the ingredients used in Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss products are certified gluten-free (as well as vegan, low glycemic, and soy-free). Flavor-free? Absolutely not. Our editors unanimously declared the Vanilla Island flavor as good—if not better—than its gluten-questionable counterparts in the freezer section.
