Gluten Free Snacks for Hungry Coeliacs!

As an awkward coeliac and frequently hungry person, I’m all about finding tasty and portable snacks. Even though there are more gluten free options in cafes and restaurants these days, I still feel more comfortable keeping snacks with me, or buying gluten free snacks that I know are safe. I especially like to discover good savoury gluten free snacks, as I find too many gluten free options are of the sweet variety – I love cake, but I don’t want to eat it all the time! I thought I’d share a few of my favourites for my fellow hungry coeliacs.  🎒 Gluten Free Breadsticks  While these Nature’s Store breadsticks don’t appear to be available any more, Tesco do a remarkably similar product which tastes just as good.

GLUTEN-FREE CHRISTMAS PARTY PLATTER AT M&S!

M&S have done it again. For years they have consistently led the way in the supermarket freefrom stakes. From their incredible cherry chocolate cake, to their gf sausagemeat stuffing, fishcakes made with gluten-free breadcrumbs and GF rolls in the M&S cafe, Mark’s and Spencer have always gone the extra mile to make tasty gluten-free equivalents to their ‘normal’ food. They have also always had very clear allergen labels on their own-brand products, for which I award them a gold star. This year they are upping their game even further by introducing a 70 piece gluten-free party platter for Christmas, full of delicious-sounding gluten-free goodies such as chicken kievs and bacon lollipops. [All credit for discovery to Sharon on this gluten-free forum I frequent!]. This looks just as good as their gluten offerings and at £27.50, while not really a bargain it does not seem to be priced any higher than their other platters. Joy to the world!
