Warburtons Newburn Bakehouse Gluten Free Wraps: Review

20131106-103507.jpgI know these wraps have been out for a while now, and everyone knows about them? But I thought I would share what I think about them anyway!

I still find it weird that they are a square. I never experienced square gluten wraps, ever, so I’m not sure why they are such a shape. It doesn’t matter, it doesn’t effect the taste or texture, but I still find it strange.

They are a soft and have a good texture and our soooo handy! I’ve tried wraps before that snap in half when you try and fold them and taste like cardboard!

I’ve tried them in many ways…

Firstly, I made a pizza, spreading tomato purée and layering with cheese, veggies and garlic chicken. Taste great baked in the oven, and retains a good texture.

The I made fajitas with my boyfriend and housemate. I warmed one up in the oven before serving, it again tasted great.

Then I tried he ultimate test for gluten free breaded products, I tried it cold, straight from the packet as a delicious ham and salad wrap. Again, the wrap stood up to the test and tasted great!

However the only issue I have is that they are so expensive! It’s around £3 for three wraps in my local Tesco and Sainsbury’s. That’s scandalous! I think the BFree wraps are available at around £2.80 for six.

However they are well worth it for a treat!

Firebug, Leicester: Gluten Free Bar Food Review

firebug-logoFirebug is a quirky bar in the heart of Leicester, with Tuesday ‘Pop Quiz’ (a very hard pub quiz that no-one could possible know the answers for), great cocktails, gigs, comedy and film nights. It’s a student heaven with £2.50 cocktails on Wednesdays and good cheap food.

The menu is really good, full of Gluten Free Treats and very well labelled. All the Jacket potatoes are GF, you can order yourself some chilli (meaty or veggie) a burger or sarnie which are both served on gluten free bread! Or if you’re feeling like a more substantial meal, order a gammon steak which is served with homemade chips, peas and a fried egg! Yummmmyyyy….

Head down there now and I promise you won’t be disappointed. You’ll probably find me there with a ‘Sex on the Sofa’ in hand…and its my housemates second home…she’ll be there cradling a pitcher of ‘Electric Ice Tea’

Have a follow of them on Twitter. See you at Pop Quiz!
