Free From Italy is committed to sourcing the best gluten free Italian products and making them available to a UK market. And when it comes to pasta, who better to trust to get it right than the Italians? Read the rest of this entry »

Almondy Cakes – 100% Naturally Gluten Free

Almondy logoYou may already know about Almondy. They’re the Swedish bakers who have teamed up with some of the world’s biggest confectionery brands to produce such delights as almond cake topped with Toblerone and almond cake topped with Daim. Amazing, right?

Hold on to your hats. Now they’ve partnered with two more superbrands, Cadbury and Philadelphia, to add more scrumptious cakes – or tårta to give them their official name – to their best selling range.

Almondy gluten free badgeWe were lucky enough to get our sticky mitts on the new cakes recently and they were sweet, creamy and delicious. They’re 100% naturally gluten free, as they’re made with an almond base inspired by an original Swedish recipe dating from the 1890s, and they’re free from artificial colourings and preservatives too.

Crunchy Cheese & Onion Potato Bites from Mrs Crimble’s

Ever since we first got our chops round a Mrs Crimble’s macaroon we’ve always been a fan of this gluten free brand. So we were looking forward to trying their new mature cheese and onion oven baked potato bites.

And they were delish. Light and crunchy but substantial too. And because they’re oven baked and not fried they’re only 90 calories a bag. So all in all a perfect on-the-go or lunch box snack, or a tangy accompaniment to a cheeky G&T in the evening.

Mrs Crimble’s potato bites are priced from £1.89 for a bag of four and you can currently find them in the Co-Op or on the Mrs Crimble’s website.

Aussiemite: A savoury gluten free spread from down under

I was bought up on a certain yeast based savoury spread – the one you either love or hate – and I love it. So Aussiemite is slightly preaching to the converted with me.

But this spread is slightly mellower and – dare I say it – more palatable than the one beginning with M. So if you have any haters in your family, this could be a brilliant alternative. And it’s certainly way nicer than that other Aussie/American import Vegemite.

I’ve had a jar sitting on my desk for weeks now and I’ve dipped carrot sticks in it. I’ve spread it on rice cakes. And I’ve stirred it into soups to give them a bit of kick. All lovely mouth-watering stuff. Read the rest of this entry »
