Finding gluten-free snacks to buy can be time-consuming, especially if you are new to a gluten-free life. In addition, reading and deciphering labels can be challenging.
You can find all of these delicious gluten-free snacks to buy find at your local Target (flavors may vary).
NOTE TO READERS: I no longer have to adhere to a gluten-free diet myself. So I am no longer creating gluten-free content.
Who doesn't like a quick snack? But while healthy, homemade snacks are great, most of us don't always have the time to make everything from scratch. And sometimes, we want to pick up a bag of cookies or crisps.
Since I began living gluten-free, I've been on a mission to find gluten-free snacks. And that has been fun. But unfortunately, what has been less fun is trying to figure out labels to determine if a snack is gluten-free.
To save you some time, I've compiled 7 yummy gluten-free snacks to buy at Target.

Until I find a better cookie, THIS is it! The world's best cookie. (This is not a sponsored opinion!... but if WOW wants to send some cookies our way 😉 we'd appreciate it.)
I've tried WOW Lemon Burst, WOW Key Lime, and White Chocolate Cookies.
And I was (gluten-free) cookie-heaven. They are buttery, rich, and very flavorful.
I mean, really, really good. Thinking about it now makes me want to run to our local Target.
Random Cookie Confession: The first time I bought the WOW cookies, I shared two (2) cookies with my family. And then ate the rest of the bag myself ... what can I tell you .. . I didn't even feel bad.
They are just that good!
The next time I bought them, I accidentally dropped one, and Riley (our cockapoo) snatched one right up. And he made it abundantly clear that he LOVES these cookies, too. Seriously, I'm going to mute myself talking about these cookies, but they are perfect.
Did you know that Macaroons are initially from Italy? Traditionally, macaroons made are made with almond paste. But there is also a type of macaroon that is made from coconut.
A word of caution about macaroons.
At the beginning of my gluten-free journey, I thought all macaroons were gluten-free, but there are plenty of recipes that include flour (including the ones at Trader Joe's)
Thankfully, the Absolutely Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroons are not made with wheat flour.
You know how the internet can be super smart. If you like this, you will also like that. I'm not a supercomputer, but I'll go on a limb.
And I guess that if you enjoy Tate's chocolate chip cookies, you'll love the gluten-free coconut crisp cookies.
Whichever one you can get your hands on. Grab a bag (or two); they are a real treat.

The Snyder's Gluten-Free Snacks are on my gluten-free snacks bucket list.
Hot Buffalo Wing pretzels? Hello, yes, please.
These could be great for football Sundays or after-work snacks.
What's not to love about Tortilla Chips? Perfect for parties or an evening with friends.
Great for scooping up salsa, guacamole, or a delicious Mexican dip like this (vegan) recipe from Minimalist Baker.
You can also have the Corn Tortillas and serve them with the Cowboy Caviar Casserole.
If you've ever tried one of the Harvest Snaps, you know how amazing they are.
Baked and not fried, they make for a pretty healthy gluten-free snack.
And if you can't find the White Cheddar try my other favorite, the Harvest Snaps Lightly Salted. Yummy!
Between Sweet and Savory
This snack should be on your list if you are a fellow kettle corn lover. Sweet and salty is a good (and addicting!) snack combo.
At 70 calories per cup, this snack won't add too many calories to your daily totals.
