Currently mostly a place for my gluten free reviews, but also a place to discuss coeliac disease and my other food issues. If you’re a gluten free brand, and want to work with me, get in touch!

doisy & dam snaps | gluten free reviews

if there’s two things i love in this world, it’s chocolate and good packaging. doisy & dam know how to do both of these things very well!

you might remember a while back i reviewed some of their chocolate bars – which were great by the way. doisy and dom now have introduced these chocolate ‘snaps’ in two flavours: maple, toasted rice and pink salt (pictured) and coconut and lucuma. i didn’t like the latter in bar form, so didn’t want to try it again. if you like strong coconut and the sweetness of lucuma, it might be just right for you though.

hippeas sweet & smokin' crisps

if there is one non essential (yet completely essential) fact you need to know about me, it’s that i LOVE crisps. i just love the texture and the crunch and the savoury flavour. since being diagnosed with coeliac disease, there’s a few favourites i’ve had to cut out. which means i have a totally justifiable reason to try lots of new crisps to make up for it right? that’s what i’m going with.

anyway, the awesome folks at hippeas sent me a big box of their organic chickpea puffs to try. i’m quite picky and a lot of ‘puffy’ crisps either tend to be too soggy to too dry. reader, these are JUST RIGHT. they’re so, so full of flavour, but not in an overwhelming way. they’ve got a good crunch but not too harsh. there’s a good amount in each bag and if it matters to you, they’re also vegan and full of protein. and no, they don’t taste of chickpeas (which i adore by the way).

nairns gluten free oatcakes

i’ve been a real convert to oatcakes over these past few gluten free years. gluten free bread still isn’t that good, and the only ones (that i’ve tried) that i will happily eat on a semi regular basis are genius and marks & spencers own. they’re almost comparable to ‘normal’ bread! i still need to try and make my own…

but in the meantime, as a bit of a crunch lover, oatcakes have been a welcome fixture for snacking and small meals. i typically go for the plain nairns oatcakes (pictured above) but was sent some of their super seeded ones to try too. the only reason i don’t have a picture of them instead is because they went so quickly, whoops! but a good sign, right?

celia gluten free beer

an accidental hiatus – but my gluten free reviews posts are back!

just to remind you ..i’m not a writer, and i’m certainly not a food writer. this is likely blatently obvious but i feel the need to point it out from time to time.

anyway. a gluten free beer! specifically, a organic czech lager called celia. i was a little dubious about trying this as i’m not a huge lager fan, but i do try to remain open minded and try things at least once.
