Slim Fruits: Gluten-free, guilt-free, great tasting

Slim Fruits

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.

Two for Tea: Gluten Free Cakes from Mrs Crimble’s

Regular readers to this blog know we’re big fans of Mrs Crimble’s choc macaroons. So when the lovely people at Mrs Crimble’s asked if there was anything we’d like to try, of course we picked our favourite!

Unfortunately by the time I thought about taking a picture most of them had been eaten. If you’ve not tried these before, where have you been? These are moist, chocolatey and cocoanutty. And did you know that Mrs Crimble sells one of these every second. I can see why!

We wrote about the amazing combination that is CELIA Beer and Clive’s Pies a while back. Luckily their stands were near each other at the show, so we swung by to say hello. We really hope CELIA get stocked in one of the major supermarkets soon: it’s the best organic craft beer around. We said hi to Sally at Clive’s Pies and tried their new flavour: Mushroom and Leek and, of course we had to buy our favourite flavour, Aloo Gobi.
