GF Chocolate Cookies #GF #productreview #wheatfree

lovemore-biscuitI was given a pack of  Lovemore O’Choco biscuits recently.

The best way to describe them would be a form of GF Oreo cookie.  and not being a fan of Oreos the fact that they where not dissimilar is not really a good thing for me personally, though I know Oreos are very popular with some people.

I found this product acceptable if there where nothing else to snack on but not something I would actively seek out as a treat.

Downside:  The biscuits are rather crumbly/brittle and suffer from  the gritty rice flour texture that so many GF baked goods have. Rather bland flavour that is very sweet and lacks a cocoa kick that the dark colouring seemed to promise.

Biiiiiig mistake. Not only do they lack discernible flavour, they also have (imho) the texture, colour and culinary appeal of plaster of paris.

Seriously to  be avoided!

Tesco should hire me

Tesco should hire me today as a mystery shopper.

Let me say that the staff I spoke with were all superb. Polite and  helpful and more than willing to go that extra piece.  The lad on the checkout  had a smile and a chatter about produce and Christmas shopping –  and yes, in the interests of bouquets among the brickbats,  I stopped on my way out to compliment one of the floor managers on how polite the staff are.  Continue reading

GF: Tesco Free From Seeded Loaf

Gluten free bread is somewhat better in general terms than the first products that came onto the market some years ago. Or at least that is what I have told myself.  Continue reading

Loose Women and Feta Cheese – by Barry Lillie

I arrived home from a morning in the office where I was split between my Italian colleagues and my English clients. Three and a half hours of swapping business style and language can really be quit…
