Nutribix Gluten Free
Winner of the FAIR trophy for the Best FreeFrom Food 2016

'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!!'

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.'




StringersGozo 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!’



StringersTesco 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!'
