Angelic Orange Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients – gluten free flour (rice, potato, tapioca, maize, buckwheat), sugar, margarine (vegetable fats: palm, vegetable oil: rapeseed, water, salt), golden syrup, chocolate pieces (cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin), emulsifier (sunflower lecithin), raising agents (mono calcium phosphate, sodium bicarbonate), tapioca starch, stabiliser (xanthan gum), natural flavouring, salt.

It’s a rainy Bank holiday here in the UK so it seemed the perfect opportunity for a cup of tea and a biscuit. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the perfect biscuit. The first one was nice and I even liked the texture, which was different from a gluteny biscuit, but better than most gluten free products. Unfortunately, the second biscuit in the packet had crossed the line from caramelised to burnt.


Chika’s Smoked Almonds

SKA-SMALL-WEBSITE-45-140g-e1440701188994Ingredients – almonds, rapeseed oil, seasoning (salt, dextrose, rice flour, yeast powder, yeast extract powder, smoked paprika, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, smoke flavouring, citric acid, natural flavouring).

Happiness is the Allergy Brothers snoring after a fun day, chilled white wine and a delicious snack. These smoked almonds are hitting the spot. Very savoury; these are a grown up snack. As a plus, I love the packaging.

Eat Real Hummus Chips Chilli and Lemon Flavour

Ingredients- chickpea flour, rice, potato starch, rapeseed oil, salt, chilli and lemon seasoning (salt, rice flour, spices including chilli, yeast extract powder, garlic powder, onion powder, citric acid, natural flavourings, lemon juice powder (maltodextrin from IP maize, lemon juice), paprika).

These were a treat just for me (the Allergy Brothers are allergic to quite a few of the ingredients so it would have been cruel to share). I wanted a big hit of flavour and boy did these deliver. These would be great with some gluten-free beer and some televised sport. Perfect bar snack.

The Foodie Market (Aldi) Multigrain Rice Cake Snack Bars

Ingredients – rice, maize, millet, buckwheat, sea salt.

I think these are the perfect rice cake. The combination of grains makes for a good flavour that is less bland than 100% rice cakes, but without the challenging texture of 100% corn cakes. They also have a good texture for dipping as they don’t collapse.

These would also be very convenient for a packed lunch as you get four packs of three crackers. They would be perfect paired with those mini tubs of houmous (or a big tub if you are greedy like me).

In summary, these rice cakes will be joining our regular shopping basket. Yum.
