El's Kitchen gluten-free snacks now at Publix

Another brand of gluten-free snacks has made its way to Publix store shelves.

El's Kitchen, a Stratford, Conn., company produces a line of gluten-free snack "Medleys" that are available now in Publix stores. The medley consists of pretzels, potato chips, corn nuts, bagel chips and corn chips.

El's is also introducing a line of bagel chips, called "Snaps," that company President Eleanor "El" Smith hopes will be in the stores soon. El sent me bags of the Snaps, so I was able to try them too.

El is not gluten free herself but said she starting making gluten-free snacks three years ago when she found that one of her best friends from childhood was celiac.

I enjoyed all the snacks I tried. I only tried the Medley's original, but they also come in cheddar and sour cream and onion varieties.

The Snaps come in cinnamon and sugar, garlic and herb and sea salt varieties.

The only drawback, like with everything else gluten free, is the price. The Medley's cost $5.29 for a 5-ounce bag. I don't know what the price is for the Snaps, which come in 4-ounce bags.

If we're lucky, maybe Publix will have a BOGO sale on them.
