Product Review: Ian's Gluten Free Fish Sticks and Onion Rings

Recently, Ian's Natural Foods was gracious enough to send me two of their products to sample including their Fish Sticks and Onion Rings. Both products are not only gluten and wheat free but are also soy, dairy, egg, and nut free so they are an inviting contribution to the food allergy community.

The fish sticks were a page from my grade school cafeteria years, except with a more refined twist. Coated in cornflake crumbs, they had a crunchy outer layer not softened by dipping sauces. I love my food with a crunch, so this was a welcomed change from my earlier experiences with soggy fish sticks. The fishy goodness on the inside was also far superior to any school fish stick, being made of real fish not some mixture only made of part fish. Bravo Ian's!

The onion rings were coated with the same batter as the fish sticks, but in this instance I didn't feel the combination played out as well. I felt they were lacking in flavor, although they kept their crunchy texture and did the job as an onion rings and went well with chipotle mayonnaise. I will admit though that I had frozen and thawed this product a few times before eating them.

Overall, Ian's has a great line for the food allergen community that cook up quick and these products are no exception.

  1. I just found your site today, and I had to say thank you! Your catchphrase says it all-- it's hard to stay sane without grain! I love the internet for all the help similar people can give each other. Celiac's isn't something anyone should do alone.
