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.

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 »

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: 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!
