Are Goldfish Gluten Free?
Unfortunately, there are no true gluten free goldfish crackers. However, there are a handful of gluten free goldfish alternatives that are great substitutes!
Because goldfish crackers are a registered trademark, other brands cannot make cheddar crackers in the shape of a fish. That’s why there are no gluten free goldfish crackers available. (Unless, Pepperidge Farm, who owns Goldfish, makes a gluten-free variety.)
But, other brands can make similar crackers without trademark infringement. So if you are looking for gluten free goldfish alternatives, you have to look for cheddar or cheddar-style crackers that are in a shape other than a goldfish.
Criteria for GF goldfish alternatives:
- cheddar or cheddar-style crackers
- bite-sized, fun shapes
All of the crackers on this list are gluten free, and the cheddar-style crackers are also dairy-free and vegan-friendly!
Ingredients are subject to change, so be sure to read the most updated label information before purchasing any of the products on this list.
