During May there have been a lot of new things on the gluten free front. For example, Café Henkel opened their doors in Brunswick. Delhicious began their journey for gluten free accreditation and the Gluten Free Meal Co. began delivery meals Australia wide, more on this Friday. Thankfully we also have some new gluten free products for the month of May as well.
Pitango Meal Pots
Pitango has quite a few gluten free products already, including some of their soups and rice meals. Now they are also introducing meal pots with four gluten free flavours. The two risotto pot flavours of Leek, Pumpkin and Spinach and Chicken and Garlic are both gluten free. As well as the Butter Chicken and Rice meal, and the Mexican Bean and Pulled Pork Chilli meal. You can find them in the chilled aisle of most supermarkets. I like these meal pots as no stress back ups for dinners or lunches when things get tough.
Fantastic Rice Minis
I really love corn or rice cakes, their texture though is really an acquired taste. If you don’t mind the texture then there are some different varieties out. The Fantastic rice minis come in a chilli salt and pepper, chicken and honey soy flavor. A pack of 80g retails for $2.50 at Woolworths. I find them really handy for a light snack while everyone else is eating gluten food. It’s nice to have some more flavour options when it comes to rice cake snacks.
Twenty Squares Chocolate
Ok, Twenty Squares isn’t a new product but my love of it was rekindled when we picked up a block on our weekend away earlier this month. There is a wide variety of flavours in the range including the dark blood orange that I grabbed for myself. Other dark chocolate flavours include dark mint crisp and simply dark. Thankfully if you don’t like dark chocolate they also have smooth and creamy milk, salted caramel and toasted hazelnut. A 100g block will set you back around $3.70 and the blocks can be found in IGA and Foodworks stores.
Simply 7 Quinoa Chips
Another product that I found on our bush getaway were the Quinoa Chips from Simply 7. While they are not gluten free, they are listed as wheat free and contain no gluten ingredients as well as have no may contain statement. The quinoa chips come in Cheddar, BBQ and Salt and Vinegar, however, there are other chips from the company including Kale, Lentil and Hummus chips. Make sure you check the packaging though to ensure that these are also gluten free.
BuonTempo Deli Thins
Wafer crackers must be all the rage at the moment; I’ve been finding new brands everywhere. This includes the BuonTempo Deli thin wafer crackers that not only come in an original flavour but also cheese. No more needs to be said, wafer style cheese crackers are fantastic for dips. I found these in my local foodworks store for $3.49 a packet.
That’s it for the random products of May. I hope you find some of these handy and enjoyable. Let me know what some of your favourite products were this month in the comments.
