We stay away from gluten and there aren't many choices out there when you also combine staying away from corn, dairy and soy as well. These chips are really great when they are fresh! They are crisp, light, and give you a salty taste with the nori used. Our 6 year old loves them! We used to buy them at Whole Foods, but can't find them there anymore. We LOVE that iherb now carries them!!!! Yum!
