Just because you have a gluten free diet, doesn’t mean you should face a restricted choice when it comes to your weekly food shop, or face endless searches of ‘what foods contain gluten?’ before you hit the aisles. You also shouldn’t have to find yourself backed into an expensive corner, having to pay premium prices for gluten free food that you have little choice but to purchase.
We’ve picked out some of our favourite gluten free snacks and gluten free desserts from our shelves, which are kind on the body and kind on the wallet, too!
Gluten Free Biscuits: McVitie’s Gluten Free Hob Nobs
The nation’s favourite oaty biscuit! Hobnobs are a hybrid of flapjack and digestive biscuit all rolled into one. And the best part is, if you’re on a gluten free diet you don’t have to miss out!
These delicious gluten free biscuits are available at your local SPAR store. The perfect accompaniment to your after-work cuppa, or an after-school pre-dinner treat for the kids. Pick them up in either the chocolate or caramel flavour for a tasty gluten free snack.
A Lighter Gluten Free Snack: Kelkin Chocolate Rice Cakes
Gluten free food (wheat free too) that tastes good, and is good for you too. Like the gluten free biscuits, these sizeable Kelkin rice cakes are not for the faint hearted, but they’re so light you wouldn’t feel too naughty for eating two at a time. They’re available in a milk or dark chocolate flavour for when you want that chocolate fix whilst watching the calories and sticking to your gluten free diet. At just 83 calories per rice cake, these gluten free snacks are available in a pack of six at your local SPAR store.
Healthier Gluten Free Deals: Alpro Yoghurt Alternatives
Remember the song, ‘how do you like your yoghurt in the morning?’, or was that eggs? Anyway, if you’re looking for gluten free snacks, you’ll like your yoghurt in the form of Alpro’s alternative. And the Alpro Greek Style Crunchy Granola makes for a delicious morning treat!
Not only is this a tasty and nutritious start to your day, but also a great addition to fruit, a pre-gym smoothie or just to try by itself. It’s also pretty clever this plant-based stuff, as it maintains all the dietary benefits of yoghurt – such as being high in calcium and vitamins B12 and D – while remaining part of a lactose and gluten free diet.
What about a gluten free dessert?
It can be hard to find the right after-dinner indulgence when you’re on a gluten free diet, but these delicious low in fat, smooth and creamy gluten free desserts from Alpro are a real treat. Like any mousse dessert, they melt in the mouth and are available in a range of really tasty flavours, such as chocolate, coconut and vanilla.
So instead of checking the ingredients of every food item, come and visit your local SPAR* for some great deals on a fantastic range of tasty and nutritious gluten free foods.
