If you’ve ever gone to the cinema in a mall or attend a pre–teen birthday party, chances are you would have come across a Frankie and Benny’s.
Authentically Italian via Noo Yoik, Frankie and Benny’s has a super sized menu that’s the size of a book. I’m not kidding. It’s literally a book, packed full of all kinds of pizzas, pastas, burgers, steaks, grills, sandwiches and wraps, waffles and brownies. In other words, a no-go area for a coeliac. Until now!
So do Frankie & Benny’s do gluten free food?
Recently Frankie and Benny’s have introduced a gluten free menu.

Mrs Crimble’s Belgian Chocolate Coconut Stars
And here’s the star of the gluten free show!
I think I may have mentioned how much I like Mrs Crimble’s macaroons. Probably three of four times. Or ten. I also like chocolate. Especially the Belgian stuff. So it was with great joy I got my hands on the recently launched Mrs Crimble’s Belgian Chocolate Coconut Stars. Read the rest of this article »

Udi’s new gluten free products
We first wrote about Udi’s gluten free goodies back in April when the well-known American brand launched in the UK. We then we met up with the Udi’s team at the recent Allergy Show and tried the delicious Tiger Bloomer.
So it’s good to hear that the brand is going from strength to strength in the UK and has recently launched some exciting new products. These include Milk Chocolate Wafers, Apple Breakfast Bars, Blueberry Muffins and… drum roll… Chocolate Chip Cookie Baking Mix. (I love cookie mixes.) Read the rest of this article »

A box of 6 from Miss Macaroon
Now we love a gluten free product that not only tastes good but does good. So we were really interested to hear about Miss Macaroon, a company started by Rosie Ginday who wanted to combine her passion for beautiful handcrafted food with a desire to help disadvantaged young adults in her local area, Birmingham.
These beautifully coloured macaroons make perfect gifts and wedding favours, and sales from the macaroons are used to fund catering classes and courses for marginalised young people from deprived areas of the city. Read the rest of this article »

Slim Fruits are free from gluten, wheat, sugar, fat, carbohydrate, and dairy
So we have a new favourite thing in the office to beat those pre lunch or mid afternoon munchies.
From the land that brought us Vegemite, Ugg Boots and Kylie Minogue, we now have Slim Fruits, which are free from gluten, wheat, sugar, fat, carbohydrate, and dairy and only use only natural flavours and colours.
These best-selling sugar-free sweets are the world’s first confectionery product to ‘harness the satiety-giving properties of soluble dietary fibre’ says the news release. In other words, once you’ve scoffed them they combine with water to make you feel full and stop you reaching for the (gluten free) biscuit tin. No wonder they’re a favourite with dieters.
