Coeliac Awareness Week – Gluten Free Treats

0

It’s not all about making things from scratch, not these days.  A few years ago there was little to no choice in the matter, but now there is and you can get some delicious offerings in the supermarkets.  Of course it depends on the supermarket and where you live, the size of the store and I guess how many people are buying the products.  This week though, Asda declared that even their tiniest stores will have no less than 8 gluten free essentials stocked.  Good news!  

Besides essentials we are seeing more and more tempting goodies on shelves, in the refrigerated section and the freezers.  Here are a few of our favourites right now…

Doves Farm

One of the leading Gluten Free brands when it comes to flour, Doves Farm are now bringing out a new range of flapjacks and cookies.

The cookies come in a full range of flavours such as:

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Double Chocolate Cookies
  • Lemon Zest Cookies 
  • Stem Ginger Cookies

What’s great is that you can pick up either a fill pack or a single serving pack, but given just how delicious they are, you are probably going to want to pick up a full pack, gorge yourself on cookies and have no regrets, they are that nice! 

Of course there are also the flapjacks that are waiting to be grabbed off of those shelves and devoured too:

  • Agave Nectar Flapjack
  • Apple and Sultana Flapjack
  • Apricot and Chia Flapjack
  • Banana and Hemp Seed Flapjack
  • Chocolate Chip Flapjack
  • Fig and Linseed Flapjack

Moist, gooey and with the perfect amount of bite, these flapjacks are full of flavour, goodness and delicious ingredients.  

The best thing about Doves Farm cookies and flapjacks?  They are organic, fair trade and completely gluten-free!

Goody Goody Sweets

We all like sweets, there is no escaping the fact, but even when you are looking at simple gummy bears you have to be careful if you want to avoid gluten.  Goody Good Stuff have come up with a solution though, gluten, lactose and even gelatine free gummy sweets.  That’s not all, they are all made with natural ingredients, making them a healthier choice than traditional sweets anyway!

  • Sour Mix & Match
  • Sour Fruit Salad
  • Summer Peaches
  • Koala Gummy Bears
  • Cola Breeze

With so many choices it will definitely be difficult to nab yourself just one bag of these mouth-watering goodies, just the names alone sound sunny and full of goodness.  They taste even better! 

Kirsty’s

If you are looking for a ready meal that can make your long days at work melt away, then Kirsty’s could be the answer.  The range of meals are prepared and steamed in beautiful Yorkshire, then sent to the supermarkets ready for you to buy.  They have a naturally long shelf life, because of the way they are steamed and can even be frozen for up to six months.  Sound good?  We thought as much!
