It’s that time of year when Christmassy treats have hit the shelves, and gluten-free options are no exception. I’ve been gluten-free for 14 years now, and whilst the ranges have become a lot better over the years, there is still a long way to go in my opinion…
Having said that, Tesco & Marks & Spencer each have a great Christmas range, which is making big strides in improving the range of gluten-free items available. It’s mainly the larger stores which have the biggest range, but I have noticed more and more that even the smaller stores stock some items.
For me, M&S is the king of all gluten-free options. I can even eat their bread without the need to toast it – and that’s one of the biggest improvements there has been over the years. They do a lunchtime meal deal, and for the first time, they’ve recently added a couple of gluten-free sandwiches in the offer. Anyone who follows a gluten-free diet knows how expensive it can be, so to come across an offer like this is very welcome!
Another big offering M&S have made this year was to change their “Dine In For Two – £10” offerings, making sure they have gluten-free options too! #happydays
So, now all retailers have to do to keep me happy is work on reducing the extortionate prices on gluten-free foods!
