Rice Works Review & Giveaway

Riceworks is a gluten-free snack that comes in five flavors:  Sea Salt, Tangy BBQ, Sweet Chili, Salsa Fresca, and Parmesan.

When I was recently contacted by the company, I looked into the gluten-free status of the crisps.

I had eaten them before, based on the ingredients list, but I always want to find out more before I recommend a product to you.

Riceworks is well informed about celiac disease and understands the importance of people having safe gluten-free food to eat.  Here is their response on their FAQ page about the gluten-free status of Riceworks:

“We can assure you riceworks is 100% gluten free. We send our samples to an outside lab, which have returned “none detected at a 3ppm level”. We rely on good manufacturing practices in our plant and with our suppliers. Although the plants are not gluten free, the lines that are used to manufacture riceworks® are. There are only a small number of ingredients that include gluten in our plants. These are well marked, stored separately and used on different lines, and even in different rooms in the plants. After running any allergen containing materials, a full cleaning of the line is completed before moving back to non-allergen products.”

All five flavors contain sesame seeds. Only the Parmesan flavor contains milk, and only the sweet chili flavor contains soy.

With that out of the way, lets talk about the snacks.  Officially they are called crisps.  I think that’s a good name for them.  They are a little sturdier than many chips, and might even be able to be used like a cracker, but they are not as thick as a cracker.

They are plenty crunchy and come in a variety of flavors.  Until recently, I had only tried the sea salt flavor which I liked.  The company sent me free product coupons and I was only able to find small bags of sea salt and salsa fresca at a nearby RiteAid store.

My son and I both enjoyed the salsa fresca flavor.  Neither of us are big on spicy hot foods.  These chips had just enough spice for our tastes and reminded us of Doritos chips.  I’m betting that the other flavors are pretty good too. These snack would be a great addition to a holiday party.

    I love love love love love, (did I mention Love :) ) Rice works!!!
    I eat htem alone, with hummus, or salsa. what I love about them is that of all the Gluten free chips, they are thicker and really fill me up. The Salsa Fresca ones are dangerous, they are so good, I could eat a whole bag!

    I’m new to gluten free and will be looking for the Riceworks crisps next time I go shopping. Thanks for all the good info on your site.

  8. Pat says

    I have only tried the sea salt, and they were very good. Like to try the others though.

  9. JillW says

    I had not heard of these and was glad to see many retailers carrying them in our area. We really appreciate the limited use of milk and soy in the chips, too, as our family is free of those as well as gluten. Looking forward to giving them a try. Definitely can’t pass up a chance at a free bag! Thanks!

    I have tried all the varieties in my local grocery store and really enjoy them. Even my non-GF friends like them.

    I’ve heard these are very good, would love to win a coupon for a free bag so I can try them for myself.

  14. Sharon says

    I have tried the sea salt which I liked and the chili which was a little spicy for me. I’m a wimp when it comes to spice.
