Winners

Genius

Genius Pains au Chocolat 

'Amazing to have a gluten-free pain au chocolat that is also dairy-free!! How do you manage to make it at all without butter?'
'OK, so it might not stand up against the very best pain au chocolat from an old school Paris boulangerie, but none the less it's pretty awesome! How did they make that crispy, crumbly pastry?'
'Compares well with many of the non-gluten-free offerings on the high street!'
