At this time of year as the season changes and it starts to get a bit chilly we need a bit of a treat and some comfort food. The nights are starting to draw in now and the only thing to do is get comfy with a brew and a little snack.
On a gluten free diet I crave the things that other people are eating, I just want to be the same, it's as if you feel your missing out in some way. I bought these two classics that my kids like to eat too but now I have my own, (ha ha evil laugh - yes MY own treats kids)!! I love the teacakes with their marshmallow top and biscuit bottom covered in chocolate, they go really well with a nice mug of tea.....yummy!! There are six in the box, well for now and Tesco's have them for £2.

The other treat is Jaffa Cakes, who doesn't love a jaffa cake? The little piece of loveliness that we can never decide if it's a biscuit or a cake. It's kind of both isn't it with a jelly top and sponge bottom covered in dark chocolate but I suppose the debate will go on forever. If it's a cake though why are they in the biscuit aisle? mmmm something to ponder on while eating the whole box. You need not feel guilty either if you accidentally do eat the whole lot as they are only 45 calories each. Not bad eh? These little beauties are also in Tesco and available at the bargain price of £1 for a pack of 12.

There you go you see you can have something chocolatey and not necessarily blow the diet too much. The thing is sticking to just one, it's very hard to not want another and another but that depends on your willpower and mine is not that good. I will think twice now I've worked the syn value out. They are both very similar to the original gluteny products, I'd say the jaffas are a bit tiny in comparison but hey I'd rather just be able to eat one and enjoy rather than have that poorly feeling. Both these products are gluten free, wheat free and suitable for vegetarians.
Give them a go a see what you think. For now though thank you for reading and I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday.
