Nutribix Gluten Free

‘So very clever – a real Weetabix lookalike! Not easy to make – but crunchy and very satisfying. Excellent ingredients – 96% wholegrain sorghum!!! High protein too. Love the way it has been blended. What a fab idea – it definitely should be the winner!!’

Runners up..

  • Booja Booja Hazelnut Chocolate Truffles- ‘Rich flavour, great size, delicious to eat. A slightly bitter aftertaste but a very ‘adult’ appeal – love that they are dairy and soya free. Quite delicious: crisp outer, delicate tasting, to-die-for subtle filling….’   
  • Daura Marzen- ‘Wow! The light colour is deceptive – wonderfully rich – a real treat with rich foods. Deep flavour for a light-coloured beer but not overly robust; well balanced with an accessible depth of flavour and a satisfying finish.’
  • Gozo Deli Basil Pesto Casheese- ‘Tangy, beautifully light, smooth and lovely garlic notes. Wonderful to see a dairy-free cheese with no soya and with such a fresh ingredient list. Very more-ish – wish I wasn’t just tasting – could eat the lot!’
  • Tesco Free From Garlic Baguette- ‘WOW – milk, eggs and gluten free!  Very tasty – you would really never tell the difference between this and a standard shop-bought garlic bread – soft crumb with a nice crunchy crust. Looks great – kids would just love this!’
