With it being Coeliac UK Awareness Week, there’s lots of new gluten-free products to test out. A few days ago I shared my 13 new gluten free products you need to try. Today, I am going to chat to you about the new Tesco gluten free range – perfect timing considering there’s 3 for 2 on all of it until the end of tomorrow!
With this in mind, the folks at Tesco challenge me to go on a bit of a free-from haul to checkout their new range. Here’s what I picked out………
The first thing I spotted was in the freezer aisle. These breaded pollock fillets are perfect to keep on standby for healthy dinners (especially if you’re cooking for one). They’re so easy with sweet potato or homemade wedges for one of those days when you just want something that’s zero effort.. Although I’ve seen a couple of brands offer this, these are the cheapest I’ve seen at £2 for 2 portions.
Also in the freezer aisle were these choc sticks. I absolutely loved them last year and now they’re back again in time for the sunshine-yay! They’re gluten free and milk free and cost £2 for 3. I love that they’re a little smaller than usual making them perfect for when you’re craving something sweet.
Another desert I was excited to spot was in the fridge aisle. Tesco has launched a lot of refrigerated gluten free and dairy deserts. There was loads to choose from- choc pots, banoffee desert, tiramisu- but these blackcurrant cheese cakes looked absolutely divine. At £1.70 for 2 pots they’re great value and perfect for a weekend treat.
The last item on my shopping list was Tesco’s sourdough cob. I always snap this up as it cuts so much better than any other gluten free bread I’ve tried- no holes! It’s a little pricey at £2.80 but the texture is far superior to the usual supermarket loaves.
It’s great to see Tesco offering so much more variety- while lots of supermarkets are upping their gluten and dairy free ranges- Tesco’s refrigerated section is particularly impressive. Although I don’t eat any dairy, I know a lot of you can tolerate lactose and Tesco are offering lots of lactofree yoghurts and granola pots. I think this is great as not everyone who is lactose free likes plant based yoghurt.
So remember you’ve got until the end of tomorrow to grab the range at 3 for 2. Let me know what bits of the range you’ve tried and what you’d recommend me trying next?
