“It smells like the state fair.” That was Martin’s initial response to the Foster Farms gluten-free corn dogs warming up in the kitchen. “They taste like it, too.”
Foster Farms has recently launched a certified gluten-free corn dog, and I’ve got to admit, these are the best I’ve ever had. The cornbread portion is slightly sweet, firm enough to hold together, though with a great texture and crumb.
Braden was excited about the dog itself, as it is quite firm and stays on the stick. We’ve had some in the past that fell apart or were so fatty that the cornbread part was soaked and nearly pudding-like. Not so with these. Carter and Corice are just in love. We experienced a full week of “can we have corn dogs for lunch?”
They’re obviously fried, as they leave a bit of grease on the plate. But that’s part of the appeal of corn dogs, isn’t it? These are meant to be a great gluten-free substitute for a good “mainstream” corn dog, and that’s exactly what they are.
I’ve found these at my local Kroger, right alongside all of the other corn dogs. It was a happy day for us. If my freezers weren’t currently full, I’m sure my husband would have stocked up on these like crazy by now. 🙂
Would you like to give these a try? Foster Farms is offering a few vouchers for a free box of their gluten-free corn dogs to some lucky Delightfully Gluten Free readers.
