Archway Launching Gluten-Free Cookies

Archway, one of America’s oldest cookie manufacturers, is launching two varieties of gluten-free cookies.

The company  will enter the gluten-free marketplace next month with a nationwide roll out of two gluten-free cookies in  its Cookie Chips line: Sugar Cookie and Chocolate Chip.

The cookies, which are certified gluten free by the Gluten Intolerance Group, are Archway’s first gluten-free products. The company, which was founded in 1936, is best known for its soft oatmeal cookies and distinctive red packaging.

Both gluten-free cookies are crispy and styled like wafers. A serving of the Sugar Cookies, which consists of eight cookies, has 140 calories and 5 grams of total fat. A seven-cookie portion of the Chocolate Chip version has 150 calories and 6 grams of total fat.

Although Archway’s Coconut Macaroons are not made with any gluten-containing ingredients, they are not designated gluten free by the company. This may be because the company has not verified the gluten-free status of the ingredients or because of cross-contamination.

Archway is owned by Snyder’s-Lance, which recently focused on expanding its brands’ gluten-free offerings. This includes a variety of Snyder’s gluten-free pretzels, Lance gluten-free, mini-peanut-butter and cheese sandwich crackers and Cape Cod snack chips.
