I was looking for chocolate chips that didn't contain regular sugar, HFCS or other garbage, I don't really care if they're gluten free but it's a nice perk. These are the tastiest ones I have found, and the cheapest as well. I haven't been able to find them any cheaper than when Amazon has them for less than $40 for 12 bags and free shipping. They cost almost $4 a bag at my health food store, so I like being able to save a few bucks buying them here. Plus they taste great (we eat them straight out of the bag when we need a chocolate fix), so you can't go wrong.
