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!

About childofthe80s

I’m a Mum, first and foremost. Henry is now 8 years old. I can’t believe where the time has gone… I’ve learnt a lot along the way, and I hope some of the experiences I choose to write about may be useful to you. I write about things that are going on in my life – a lifestyle blog, if you like. I like money saving and helping people to save money here and there, I also do a lot of honest reviews, so I shall be posting some of those on here too. I love photography – Henry is my most favourite subject – but I do love taking pictures of anything really. Children’s portraits are what I think I’m best at. I enter a lot of competitions – I admit it! It’s a great hobby to have and has brought many an experience our way which we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to do. A great example to give you was when I won a spa holiday to Kuala Lumpur – we flew business class and lived a life of luxury for 10 whole days. It was bliss and something we would have NEVER have been able to have treated ourselves to otherwise… and all because I sent my name and address on a postcard to the Times newspaper. I feel that I am fairly successful at comping because I put a lot of effort in – AND I have a positive attitude. I run a little business selling costume jewellery, and I also work 4 days a week in a digital library, so – what with all that – I’m a pretty busy person! I wouldn’t change any of it, mind… I hope you’ll find my posts interesting enough to stick around, follow me, share some of my pages etc. Anna x
