Wow there are so many new gluten free products hitting the shelves at the moment that I can barely keep up! This morning I was at a Schar gluten free brunch event, where they revealed even more exciting product arriving on supermarket shelves next week. I will be doing a separate gluten free Christmas product round up soon as there are just too many to fit in this one post. Let’s have a little look at what’s new or coming soon to supermarkets.
Gluten Free Bagels
Regular followers will know I am bagel obsessed, so this month has been a VERY good news month for me. Two new launches and one revamped line = lots of yummy gluten free bagel choices for us.
1) Schar Gluten Free Bagels
- £2.50 for a pack of four, available in Morrisons (from 11th November)
- I tried these this morning at the launch event and OMG I am so excited to finally be able to have a proper gluten free bagel. The other varieties I have tried so far tend to be quite bready but these have a really nice chewyness to them.
- £1.95 for a pack of four, available in Tesco stores now
- Not new, but they have improved the recipe – I tried the white bagels last week and enjoyed them. The Schar ones are better, nevertheless I wanted to include these as they are still decent and they are a cheaper alternative.
3) New York Bagel Company Gluten Free Bagels
- £2.59 for a pack of four, available in Tesco (from 18th November)
- I am VERY excited about this upcoming product launch as American bagels tend to be really good, watch this space for a review soon.
Gluten Free Pastries & Doughnuts
4) Schar Gluten Free Croissants
- £2.50 for a pack for 4, available in Morrisons (from 11th November)
- These are quite nice and it is certainly good to have a gluten free croissant option (especially a handy freezer one), but don’t expect flakey pastry. It’s more of a cakey centre with a nice crispy outside. Find them in the freezer section.
5) Morrisons Bake At Home Gluten Free Croissants & Chocolate Chip Pastry Swirls
- £1.87 for a pack of 2, available from Morrisons stores.
- Ooooooh these are exciting! I tried both this week and they could well be the best on the market now. They are still not the same as gluteny pastries, but these both bake up nicely to give crisp pastry with a soft middle.
- £1.50 for a pack of 6 mini doughnuts, available in Morrisons
- You can find these new doughnuts in the freezer section and they look very similar to the Asda ones (which I love), so I’ll be giving these a try when I find them.
Gluten Free Crisps
- £1.00 for 150g, available in Tesco.
- Warning: these new Tesco onion rings are addictive. We have now eaten three packets and have four sat on top of the kitchen cupboard. They are EXACTLY like normal onion rings…actually scrap that…these are better! Absolutely worth trying.
- £2.50 per pack, available in Asda now and soon in Morrisons (11th November) and Tesco (18th November).
- These are amazing. They taste exactly like Pringles (even the BBQ seasoning is perfect) and are totally scoffable. I will be attempting to eat my own bodyweight in these this Christmas. Yes £2.50 is a little pricey but I absolutely would pay that price for these as they are really good.
9) Kettle Chips Ridge Cut BBQ Beef Brisket Crisps
- Available from Sainsburys (only £1 at moment) and Tesco, £2.
- I love a crisp and a love a crinkle cut crisp even more. Add in an exciting gluten free flavour and I’m sold! Bought these the other day, so will let you know what I think of them.
Gluten Free Cakes & Biscuits
- £1.80 for 5 cakes, available in Tesco
- these are fairly new but I am mainly adding these to the round up as I tried them recently and they are EXCELLENT. Soft, fluffy sponge, delicious icing, so so good. My husband reckoned they were are good as his usual gluteny ones.
11) Schar Spekulatius Biscuits
- Available in Asda, £1.40.
- These are so so so so so good. They are very like the gluteny Lotus biscuits, with a beautiful crunchy texture and lightly spiced flavour. Christmas in a gluten free biscuit.
12) Morrisons Millionaire Shortbread Slices
- Available in Morrisons stores.
- Very yummy and individually wrapped, making them handy for lunchboxes and for when you are out and about.
13) Sainsburys Gluten Free Cupcakes
- Available in Sainsburys stores.
- These two new products popped up this month and although I have not personally tried them I have heard good things from my followers.
- Available in Asda.
- Finally a gluten free version of this classic German festive treat! My friend Sarah from @gfblogger is already obsessed with these.
15) Coop Hand Finished Chocolate Cake Gluten Free
- £3.50 per cake, available in Coop stores
- This chocolate cake is wonderful, like a proper mini chocolate fudge cake and perfect for both celebrations and a cheeky slice of afternoon cake. Soft sponge and generous, fudgy icing. One of my current fave treats.
16) Morrisons Gluten Free Chocolate Cake
- Available in Morrisons
- I have to say, I think this is made by the same manufacturer as the Coop cake…it is really delicious, a proper chocolate fudge cake.
- £3.00 for 400g, available from Morrisons
- This chocolately freezer cake is actually gluten free and looks super yummy and is produced by gluten free company Almondy. I can’t wait to try it! Note it contains gluten free wheat starch, so it fine for coeliacs but not those with a wheat allergy.
18) Tesco Free From All Butter Shortbread
- Available in Tesco stores.
- I love shortbread so can’t wait to give these a try. I have to admit I thought they already did these but may well be confusing them with Sainsburys…either that or they have redeveloped the recipe.
- £1.50 for 16 profiterols, available in Morrisons.
- Oooooh I can’t wait to try these and they are pretty good value too. Perfect for party season!
20) Tesco Cookies and Cream Biscuits
- Available in Tesco, £2.00
- These came out last month but I thought it might be helpful to share my review. The chocolate-coated gluten free oreos remind me so much of Penguin bars! I had expected the chocolate to be better quality, but they are still pretty nice.
21) Deliciously Ella Caramel Cups
- Available at most supermarkets.
- The newest addition to the healthy snack range from Deliciously Ella is gluten free and these taste really yummy.
Gluten Free Bread
22) Morrisons Ancient Grain Cob
- Available from Morrisons, £2.30.
- I haven’t tried this bread but it’s definitely their version of the more expensive Genius cob. It looks nice and I want to try it soon so will keep you posted.
Other Gluten Free Products
23) Pieminister Gluten Free Mistle Moo Pie
- Available in Morrisons or via their website, £4.50.
- This pie is brilliant! The Pieminister range is my fave for gluten free pies as their gluten free pastry is exceptional and I was really pleased to see them bring out a festive variety. I tried it the other day and it is very yummy – beef, bacon and port. Definitely worth treating yourself to.
24) Heck Chicken, Sage & Onion Cocktail Sausages
- Available in Asda.
- Heck’s festive flavour, which looks lovely and is gluten free.
- Available from various health food stores and Coop.
- I was sent this mix to try recently and was really impressed with it. Very easy to mix up and cook into tasty falafel patties. Worth having in the store cupboard.
- £1.50 for 8, available from Morrisons stores.
- Find these new Yorkies in the free from freezer section.
- £2.10 for 300g packet, available in Morrisons stores.
- I haven’t tried this but a couple of my followers told me it worked really well for them and produced yummy pizza bases.
28) Tesco Free From Mermaid Cupcake Kit
- Avaialble in Tesco stores, £2.00.
- A fun one to make with the kids! Gluten, wheat and milk free.
- £2.25 for 350g packet, available from Morrisons stores
- This mix is gluten, dairy and soya free. It also does not contain any egg so perhaps you could get creative with a vegan recipe using this one.
30) Morrisons Vanilla Cupcake Kit
- Available in Morrisons
- I tried this mix out this week and it makes tasty little gluten free (option to have dairy free) cupcakes and the icing mix, cases and sprinkles are all included. You simply need to add butter or dairy free spread.
- £3.50 for 325g, available from Tesco stores (freezer section)
- A thin and crispy gluten and dairy free pizza, topped with dairy free cheese and pepperoni.
- Available in Morrisons, £2.50.
- Morrisons have launched a few new ready meals and as they kindly sent me a whole hamper of things to try, we had the rather unusual combo of beef lasagne and curry noodles for lunch :D. The noodles were nice but the star for me was the lasagne – I oven baked it per the recommended instructions and it was fab. I don’t usually go for ready meals but this was ideal on a busy day.
- Available online.
- I was sent some bottles of this new Coeliac UK-approved pale ale to try, so will report back!
34) Morrisons Bake at Home Gluten Free Cheese Straws
- Available in Morrisons.
- I’ve not tried these but it’s nice to see a savoury item included in their new Bake at Home range and I bet these would be fab for Christmas.
35) Morrisons Mozzarella Sticks
- Available in Morrisons.
- New to the free from range and you can find these in the free from freezer section.
