Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs

Last month, a box of Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs arrived at my house.  I was really excited to try them, because of all the rave reviews I was seeing on social media from other gluten free bloggers.   

Foster Farms Gluten Free Honey Crunchy Corn Dogs are certified gluten free by the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG).  They feature a 100% chicken frank dipped twice in a honey crunchy batter.  

The first corn dog I tried was heated in the microwave for 40 seconds.  I don't have anything to compare it to, because I had never eaten a corn dog in my entire life until the Foster Farms corn dogs arrived.  I was really impressed, because it reminded me of a quality hot dog covered in a sweet corn bread.  My husband liked it too, and was shocked when I told him the franks were made of chicken.  

The real test came when I fed them to my daughters and my Chinese international student, while my husband was in Europe.  This time, I decided to cook them in the oven on a parchment covered baking sheet for 18 minutes at 350 degrees.

My daughters did a lot of whining when I told them what we were having for dinner, even though they had never tried a corn dog before.  The whining instantly stopped after the first bite.  All my ladies asked for ketchup, and gave Foster Farms gluten free corn dogs a big thumbs up.  My twins, who I thought would only eat one, asked to split one of the extra corn dogs I made.  

My only beef with Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs is that they don't contain non-GMO corn.  As a family, we don't buy all organic or non-GMO products, but I do try to avoid genetically modified corn.  Each corn dog is only 180 calories, and as far as allergens go, they contain soy and eggs.

Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs are available nationwide at many retailers, including: Safeway (Safeway, Vons, Randalls, Tom Thumb), Kroger (Kroger, Frys, Smiths), Raleys, Lucky, Albertsons, Giant Eagle, Woodmans, Copps/Roundy's, Schnucks, Food Lion, HyVee, and Marsh.  I hope to see Publix added to this list soon.

Foster Farms sent me a complimentary box of gluten free corn dogs to review, but all the opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Have you tried Foster Farms new gluten free honey crunchy corn dogs?
