To put it bluntly, Kabuto noodles are a better tasting, better quality pot noodle! I was thrilled to see that they are now stocked in Sainsburys! They are handy to have for a quick lunch and easy to take to work etc as all you need is boiling water....even I can cook them!! Just beware as the GF pots look very similar to the regular ones so make sure you pick the right pot!
A few weeks a go I mentioned the Tesco Lifestyle Food Fair. Sadly, it is now over amd while it was a good idea at the time it has raised a major problem for all Free From peeps......we had new, exciting products dangled under our noses and then they were harshly ripped away from us! Take my Udi's choccy biccies for example-
For those of you who never thought you could have an Oreo again.... wrong! In my opinion they are just as good and scarily easy to demolish a whole packet without noticing (not that I would know about things like that?!) BUT don't get too excited cos they are virtually impossible to track down now the Food Fair has finished! It forces me to contemplate the age old question.....Is it better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?! Come on Tesco, you can't dangle the choccy biccie shaped carrot under our GF noses and then take it away, that's just cruel! We want to see some of the Lifestyle Food Fair Products stocked regularly in your stores....please.....pretty please with an Udi's on top!?
Well done Nestle! Well done for doing what other big brands could have easily done...but haven't!
Cornflakes are naturally gluten free right? They only (usually) become contaminated by manufacturing methods! Therefore, to me the normal GF public, it makes sense to change your manufacturing methods, slap "GF" on the box and bobs your uncle you've got a unique selling point! Well done Nestle, it worked....we, the GF people are happy and the best thing.......it's a big box! Much bigger than other GF cereals so better value for money! We salute you!
If you can cast your minds back to July when the weather was warmer and the long Summer lay before us.....I and many, many others schlepped to The Allergy and Free From Show at Olympia! Yes, I am still wading my way through my hoard! This week I cracked open my Amisa crackers (http://www.amisa.co.uk)
They made a nice change from my usual rice cake repertoire! They have quite a kick to them after you've eating a few (maybe the key is not to eat too many?!) but that's not a negative! Crackers tend to be quite bland, so it was good to have something with a bit of flavour! I also finally persuaded Dale to have a meat free dinner and use the Amisa Falafel Mix
These are fab! I was really impressed. Easy to make (ok, really easy for me cos I didn't make them but you know what I mean?!) and really tasty. Granted, they are probably bigger than they should be cos we didn't get 16 out of the mix but it is quality not quantity right? Again, a bit of a kick but not too much! So glad I have another box in the cupboard (yep, my cupboard is like the the wardrobe in Narnia!) and I can't wait to try the veggie burger mix that's in there too!
So, that's me done for a fortnight! Have a great couple of weeks and see you in October!! X (@lizprice79)
