Gluten Free Craque!

Sometimes, you find the coolest gluten free stuff in the most unexpected places.  Like Etsy.  While searching for handmade jewelry, I happened upon CraqueCandy.  Let me tell you, this treat is aptly named.  Once you start eating Craque, you just can't stop.  You hoard it.  You hide it.  You end up with delicious white stuff on your mouth and hands  (see my hand, lower right).  It's crazy.  And it's cute.  The packaging design is so smart and clever.  For Halloween, it's called "WitchCraque".  Christmas is "Santa Snaque" or "Rocks for your Socks" and Hanukkah's is "Hanukkah Guilt".  And since it's made with Rice Chex, it's all gluten free! 
There's a deliciously tangy version "with a kick" made with spicy chili; a version with chocolate covered candied blood oranges mixed in and "Elvis Rocks", which is sweet banana chips "shaken, rattled and rolled" in chocolate, peanut butter and powdered sugar.
Craque is happy to design a cool label just for your event.  And little bags of craque (dime bags?) would make great favors for weddings, showers, or parties, wouldn't they?
