After trying several GF ginger snaps, these are my favorite!Aug 19, 2011
I am a huge fan of ginger snaps. When recently diagnosed as needing to be gluten-free, and recently pregnant, I've been on the hunt for GF ginger snaps. I've tried three:
Mi-Del Gluten Free Ginger Snaps
Annie's Homegrown Ginger Snap Gluten Free Bunny Cookies
Mary's Gone Crackers Love Cookies Gluten Free Ginger Snaps
Texture: a bit grainy. Crunchy, but crumbles in the mouth in that gluten-free grainy way that is not my favorite texture
Ginger flavor: middling, a tiny bit spicy on the tongue but not too much
Sweetness: sweet, like you'd expect a cookie to be
Size: about 2 inches, and about 1/4 inch thick
Density: the most heavy or dense of the three
Overall 2 or 3 out of 5 stars
Texture: a bit grainy, but less so than Mi-Del. Very crunchy. Little goldfish-sized crackers perfect for kids or snacking.
Ginger flavor: the most mild of the three, has that gingery hint to it, but not enough where it is spicy or leaves a tingle on the tongue
Sweetness: mild, less sweet than Mi-Del. More like eating an animal cracker than cookie. Tastes great with a slice of cheese.
Size: about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch, and very thin
Overall 4 out of 5 stars. If you wanted a kid-friendly cracker-like snack, this would be 5 of 5 stars
Texture: VERY crunchy, not at all grainy. Texture was the least "gluten-free" like of the three. Felt like I was eating a regular cookie.
Ginger flavor: very spicy. I could only eat two or three crackers before my tongue needed a break (but I'm not big on spicy foods in general so consider me on the sensitive side). I actually prefer a ginger cookie to be like this though. Plus, it killed my pregnancy nausea in minutes - bonus.
Sweetness: not as sweet as Mi-Del, but not as mild as Annie's. very pleasant to me.
Size: about 2 inches, and about 1/4 inch thick, basically the same as Mi-Del.
Density: Ultra light, most airy in the center
Overall 5 out of 5 stars.
Everyone's tastebuds are different, but these were my perceptions. I personally want a ginger cookie with a good "bite" to it, and I really can't stand gluten-free products that are grainy in texture (which seems to be most of them). I want the texture to act like a regular gluten item. For me, Mary's fit the bill exactly, and Annie's was a close second. Annie's was so different though, I'd eat Mary's as a cookie, and Annie's as a snack, so I could see having them both in the pantry.
The one I still want to try is Pamela's, because it has great Amazon reviews. I just don't want to buy them in bulk until I try them, so I need to find them locally.

Tasty, Crunchy, Gluten Free Ginger Snaps!Mar 20, 2012
I tried some other gluten free gingersnaps and I think these tasted the best. There was no grainy texture. It was crunchy in the same way a regular non GF ginger snap would be. The taste is excellent and more pronounced (IE. more ginger spice) than other brands I have tried. When you are in the mood for something different this fits the bill, plus the ginger is good if you are feeling nauseous.

TASTE A+!!Nov 30, 2013
By Roseanna H.
I'm restricted by allergies to gluten to a super clean diet. This is the closest thing to a treat I can have. Most people imagine they're eating gluten free by eating corn, or barley, or rice. I can't even eat any of those things. This does have some rice flour but unlike actual rice it doesn't give me mind-blowing pain. If you can eat corn, then YOU AREN'T GLUTEN SENSITIVE. I had to learn the hard way (and a trip to Mayo Clinic at big $$$$) to be told by a big-time immunologist that there are at least 200 gluten proteins and only tests for a handful. Mayo does some that aren't available anywhere else in the world and yup, if you have a GENETIC sensitivity to gluten then avoiding wheat is not going to be enough to stop your symptoms. It has brown rice, potato, amaranth, and pea flours but not enough of the rice and amaranth to give me symptoms if I only eat one or two a week...it's not an easy life. However as far as taste, these are AWESOME!! I mean like a REAL ginger snap with real molassas and everything. They are super yummmmmy!!!

Great cookie for gluten free diets. Looking forward to make a gingersnap pie crust for my pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving.

Love 'em from AmazonSep 04, 2012
These ginger snap cookies remind me of the old home-made gingerbread men so popular for Halloween and Christmas. They have a delightful spice combination.
