Dr Oetker – New Gluten Free Pizza Range

Last week we attended the launch of Dr Oetker’s Gluten Free pizza range to sample some bits and report back on what we thought of the GF options.  As a gluten-loving woman I wasn’t sure what to expect but I have an open mind and stomach.

Knowing that Coeliac disease (sensitivity to gluten) impacts 1 in 100 people in the UK brings a big reason for companies such as Dr Oetker to introduce a gluten-free option for their customers. Because everyone loves a bit of pizza, right? So why not give us all a good option?

Aloe aloe, Simplee Aloe!

Oh my gosh! If you hadn’t noticed, the South of England is going through a ‘heatwave’ (yes, hotter places we know you are hotter but we are the feeble English so for us 28c is a heatwave) in September.

Naturelly – Jelly Juice

We visited the Speciality & Fine Food Fair 2016 and stumbled upon Naturelly. These guys and gals make a jelly juice snack aimed at kids aged 2+ and made from real fruit juice and natural gelatine-free jelly with no added sugar.  The point is to have something for kids to have as a snack which is good for them and a bit different – not a snack and not a drink, a delicious in-between!

This appealed to me because although I am a 20-something *cough cough* I don’t think you ever really lose the love for a bit of jelly, especially when it’s in a squeezy packet. So I gave it a crack (and the fella on the Naturelly stand was also a jelly fan so there was no shaming for me going for a snack aimed at toddlers and over).
