My #1 tip when traveling gluten-free is to BRING YOUR OWN SNACKS! Actually, that might just be one of my life tips in general. Married to a diabetic? Bring a snack. Have toddlers? Bring a snack. Gonna be stuck in a car for a while? Bring a snack. You get the idea: before any big trip I stock up on snacks. I always end up with a happy mix of some trusted favorites, some new finds, some healthy choices, and some… less than healthy! Keep on reading for a list of my FAVORITE gluten-free snacks!

1. Kind Bars
Kind bars are filled with natural sources of protein and so many of them taste pretty much like dessert! They often go on sale on Amazon, but you can also purchase them on Thrive Market.
2. Enjoy Life Bars
3. Sahale Snacks
Believe it or not, packaged nuts are often a source of hidden gluten and will contain a warning on the package about being processed on equipment also processing wheat.
Not so with Sahale Snacks! These are certified gluten-free which gives us an extra level of confidence in their product. Click here to learn more about gluten-free certification and labeling Plus, they come in super creative and amazing flavors!
4. GoGo Squeeze—Applesauce Pouches
Looking for a healthy gluten-free snack for toddlers—applesauce pouches! There are countless brands of applesauce pouches, but I look for applesauce with no added sugar (like these!). Plus, the kids like the tops on this brand because they take them on/off by themselves. GoGo Squeeze is not only gluten-free but also 100% fruit, non-GMO, nut free, and dairy free. They even make organic pouches and fruit & veggie blend pouches if you wanna sneak in some veggies!
Available on Amazon.com and Thrive Market.
5. Popcorn Indiana
Tyler and I first discovered Popcorn Indiana’s Drizzlecorn flavors over six years ago—and we buy it a lot. Whenever it’s on sale we snatch up a couple bags, but buying in bulk from Amazon is always an option too. Tyler’s not a huge fan of kettlecorn, but this decadent dessert-like popcorn is for sure a winner in his book! How could you not like something covered in both white and dark chocolate? This is the first snack we finished off on our trip. While it’s not really healthy—it is both kocher and certified gluten-free. Plus, living gluten-free can be restrictive enough, you have to branch out and enjoy life every now and then. Assorted flavors are often available on Thrive Market as well.
6. Simple Mills Crackers
Simple Mills crackers are not only certified gluten-free, but grain free as well. They are crunchy, mildly salty, and actually taste a LOT like Wheat Thins. The kids love them too! I pack them in their lunches with pepperoni slices a lot. One of the things I love about Simple Mills products is they only contain a few ingredients (these crackers have 8 ingredients). These crackers are more than just a gluten-free snack, they are also non-GMO, free of corn & soy, vegan, and Paleo-friendly.
These are available both on Amazon.com and Thrive Market.
7. Pirate’s Booty
Toddlers & puffs. It’s a magical mix. Luckily all the flavors of Pirate’s Booty are gluten-free!
Shop all the flavors of Pirate’s Booty on Amazon.com
8. Vegan Rob’s Puffs
Vegan Rob’s puffs are a new certified gluten-free snack we’ve discovered. The texture is great and my kids LOVE these. When we buy them, they polished off the bag FAST. I would say they’re worth the try. I plan on trying some of Vegan Rob’s other flavors and their tortilla chips available on Amazon.com.
9. Lovely Candy Company
10. Veggie Straws by Sensible Portions
Veggie straws are one of our FAVORITES. While not every brand is gluten-free, Sensible Portions is! Plus, they also make apple straws for a sweet treat. Shop all of Sensible Portions’ snacks on Amazon.com here.
11. Vermont Smoke & Cure Products
I love jerky and pepperoni for a quick and easy protein boost without added sugar. Vermont Smoke & Cure products are DELICIOUS. Not only are they gluten-free but they’re antibiotic free as well. I love the pepperoni and mini BBQ flavored sticks are perfect for lunches. You can find these both on Amazon.com and Thrive Market.
