It's the longing that gets me. I know I've mentioned it just one or two times before, but the longing for food that hasn't yet made the 'free from' rounds really gets me. Now, no matter what I do, I want a croissant. I want to eat foods that will mess me up, just for the taste. I want the pleasure of tasting again.
Well & Truly Crunchy Smokey Paprika Sticks Review When I was considering trying the Well & Truly Crunchy Smokey Paprika Sticks I saw a review that said they were ‘just like Nik Naks’, and I MISS NIK NAKS … so I brought them. And then I brought them again. The Basics Ocado Cost: £2.00 Size: 200g Specified Free From: Gluten Also ‘free from’*: Egg, Milk (may contain). Ingredients: Corn Flour, Corn Oil, Linseed Oil, Natural Paprika Powder, Salt Allergy Notes: May Contain Milk, Mustard, Soya Vegan/Vegetarian: Vegan Smell, Taste & Texture There’s no real smell to the Well & Truly Crunchy Smokey Paprika Sticks, none at all … well apart from oil. The predominate…
I brought the Moo Free Mikey Scrummy Caramel Bunny on a whim, and because I was doing my monthly Tesco order for foods I can't find elsewhere, and needed to reach the £40 minimum. I thought, what the hell, it's new to me and £2.50! And boy, I was surprised! I've tasted all bar the caramel Moo Free bars - mostly because I didn't know they did a caramel one! First of all I'm really pleased to see fun easter treats making their way to shelves - it's the first year I've seen bunnies and eggs, and I LOVE it! I love the bunny shape, and eating it brings joy.
Oh. My. God. So decadent. So creamy. So rich. So beautiful. Moo Free was the first brand of free from chocolate I settled on, and after I jumped ship to NOMO, I dediced to give these a try.
I’ve gone through about 4 different types of mince pies this year that are free from for me, and the Co-op Free From Mince Pies are the standout BEST. Let me tell you why!
A review of the new Tesco Cream Crunchies! Will they live up to my expectations? Do they taste like the Fox's Crunch Creams?
I have to be honest; I did not have high hopes for the Tesco Free From Onion Rings. After the utter disaster of the cheese balls my expectations were low. I’m very happy to say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised!
5 free from foods I’m still looking for! Theortically I could potentially make the following foods, if it wasn’t for my other disabilitites, and limited shopping options. 1 Croissants I miss the buttery, flaky, soft but dense and light texture so much. *sigh* 2 Yorkshire Puddings Yorkshire puds were one of the last foods I let go of … begrudgingly. 3 Maltesers I know Schar have just come out with a Malteser equivelent, but they have milk. 4 Angel Cake When I attempted the gluten challenge I kind of went full hog and ate a bit of dairy and egg also. Oops? I had plenty of regrets, but devouring the lightness of the…
Oh boy. Buckle in. I don't know what it is about certain types of foods from certain brands, but they never ever taste good to me, and the Tesco Cheese Flavour Balls are one of those things. I know the pallet is quite a personal thing, but I cannot get over the flavour of Tesco’s cheese flavoured free from products. There’s something wrong with it.
How to be happy when eating free from versions of past foods. This post was inspired by the new Tesco Cheese Flavour Balls – full review coming soon. Nowadays there are ‘dupes’ of many foods, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Some dupes are from the same manufacturer cashing in on the ‘free from’ trend. Some are from allergen friendly companies filling a whole in the market, but one thing is certain – they are all ‘nearly but not quite’. Granted, there is sometimes the odd product that’s amazing, but when you have as many allergens/intolerances/IBS as me the list of ‘tastes like I remember it’ gets even smaller. It’s quite common…
