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 entry »

A Perfect Gluten Free Gift from Miss Macaroon

Miss Macaroon

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 entry »

Gluten Free Grocery Stores: What local supermarkets sell gluten free foods?

It wasn’t long ago that the only gluten free foods available were from health food stores. And they weren’t cheap either. These days though, the big chain grocery stores all have their own gluten free products. And there are now whole aisles in our local supermarkets dedicated to food that’s gluten free.

Grocery stores such as Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco all have their own ‘Free From’ ranges, as well as carrying other gluten free brands. Definitely worth checking out are Sainsbury’s gluten free muffins: they’re moist and sweet and taste like the real thing. And with Christmas coming up fast, it’s worth stocking up on Sainsbury’s gluten free Christmas pudding and gluten free mince pies. These come highly recommended. Delicious!

Tesco’s is another grocery store with their own ‘Free From’ range. Some of our favourites include the gluten free double chocolate cake. As well as cupboard staples like gluten free brown bread and gluten free pitta bread.

Another grocery store with a gluten free range is Asda. We particularly like Asda’s gluten free penne pasta and spirals pasta. These both cook really well and don’t disintegrate into a wallpaper paste consistency like some gluten free pastas.

All the high street grocery stores carry other gluten free brands such as Glutano, Kelkin, Tru Free, Orgran, and Juvela. Don’t forget to try Mrs Crimble as well, now available in most of the major supermarkets. The gluten free chocolate macaroons are amazing. But will you be able to stop at one?
