As always we are ending the month with my gluten free finds. This month we have a good variety of both sweet and savoury products. With a few of these products to be featured in upcoming reviews. Before we start I do want to give a shout out to Enjoy Life Products, I reviewed their range earlier this month. These products are definitely an amazing find for the month of July. However, since I have reviewed them already I thought I’d give another product the limelight.
Gluten Free Weet-bix Go Breakfast Biscuits
Starting with breakfast, these are the new Gluten Free Weetbix bars. There are two flavours out at the moment and each pack costs you $5. The two different flavours include Cranberry Crush and Apple Spice. Inside each box, you get 5 packs and each pack contains 3 biscuits. I thought that while they had good flavour they were on the dry side. It felt like they needed some milk or something to accompany them. They did crumble a lot so I’m not sure how practical they’d be on the go. However, everyone has different tastes and uses so they may be the perfect snack for someone else.
Simply Wize Low Fodmap Sauces
One for our Low Fodmap buddies, the new Simply Wize sauces come in three varieties. Two of them come in a double pack for around $10 at Costco. The third I haven’t yet been able to find but Simply Wize suggests checking Foodworks stores in Victoria. The two in the duo pack are the Napolitana and Basilico sauces. The third flavour is a Primavera sauce.
The Basilico sauce had a wonderful flavour. Many cooks use onion or garlic for extra flavour in sauces and thankfully nothing felt like it was missing in this one. It does have a strong tomato flavour with refreshing basil. I paired it with some turkey and quick stir fry veggies.
The Napolitana worked really well in both a bolognese style dish and on top of some chicken for a chicken parma. It had a rich flavour and again it felt like nothing was missing.
Dairyworks Cheese & Rice Crackers
I was really excited when I found these crackers. I never got to enjoy these type of snack packs as a kid so I’ll indulge a little now. These cost me $5 from Woolworths. I forgot how much I really enjoyed Colby cheese and paired with a deliciously crunchy rice cracker with a touch of flavour it was perfect. I would happily enjoy these every day.
Bayview Texan Chicken Nibbles
A product that has been around for a while but alluded me is the Bayview Sticky Texan Chicken Wing Nibbles. I finally got to try them and paired them with a side of the New Chinese Garden fried rice. Brody thought that they were a bit too fiddly for his fingers but I didn’t mind them. They are perfect small bites for a party. They baked well and the meat stripped clean off the bone. In terms of flavour, I wouldn’t say they are spicy but then again you know how much I love my chilli. They did have a delicious sweet BBQ flavour with a hint of spice. I’d happily enjoy them again. I picked these up from Foodworks Bacchus Marsh for around $8 or $9.
Jase’s Kitchen Sweet Pies
The final product for this month was featured in the Coeliac Society Magazine and that is the Jase’s Kitchen Apple Pies and Jase’s Kitchen Apple and Rhubarb Pies. They, as usual, are slightly pricey at $8.99 for four mini pies. You can find them in the Woolworths frozen aisle.
I hope that you have enjoyed my gluten free finds for July. What were your favourite products for the month? I’ll be reviewing the Jase’s pies and the Simply Wize sauces in an upcoming review, so if you are interested, make sure to check those out during August.
