Pepperidge Farm Is Now Selling Gluten-Free Cookies and Yes, They're Absolutely Delicious
Thanks to Goldfish, Milanos, and that iconic Swirl bread, Pepperidge Farm has long dominated the dry goods aisles at the supermarket. Now, the 75-year-old bakery is gunning for a new spot: the gluten-free aisle.
As of this January, for the first time in company history, Pepperidge Farm is selling gluten-free cookies. And these aren't just any cookies. They're the wildly popular Farmhouse Thin & Crispy style, those paper-thin, oh so crunchy cookies that taste less like a boxed good and more like a fresh-baked delicacy.
To boot, the Farmhouse Thin & Crispy Cookies, which were introduced in 2017, are, well, universally loved. With five-star ratings across the web, consumers have raved that they are at "the top of my family's list of favorites." Safe to say, the regular edition cookies are already a fan favorite. Now, they can cater to an entirely new type of fan. Gluten-free versions will be available in both the Milk Chocolate Chip and Butter Crisp flavors.
For the cookie-lovers who are following a gluten-free diet, the pickings have always been somewhat slim, but this cookie debut is a step in the sweet direction. And, ringing in at just under $4 for a box of 12, Pepperidge Farm's take on gluten-free dessert is cheaper than competitors such as Tate's Bake Shop, a popular New York-based brand that previously held a vice grip on the gluten-free cookie market cornered, until now).
The Farmhouse Gluten-Free cookie will only run you 140 calories per serving, which is two cookies. Suddenly, those New Year's Resolutions to "be healthier" feel so much more achievable! Keep an eye out at Target, Publix, and Albertons for this new, gluten-free treat.
