Oh my goodness I may just be in cereal heaven right now as I found this cereal at Tesco yesterday. Having to go on a gluten free diet leaves you with a lot of adjustments to make and there are a lot of foods I miss so much, cereals being one.
Now I have tried and tested a few cereals and been a bit disappointed. Cornflakes had a good gluten free substitute but it wasn't like the real thing and well the Weetabix was ok but no where near the original. I do come to expect that most products are going to be different as gluten makes a massive difference to the construction of our favourite popular food choices. I'm not looking for perfection honestly but something similar would be good.
These Free From Special Flakes are so like Kelloggs Special K you would not know the difference. Hurray I can just tuck into a nice cereal again. I love my gluten porridge but I did fancy something else. I'm so happy I cannot rave about this enough and if you are anything like me and on a restricted diet, when you find products that work you want to tell the world and do a little happy dance.
I also spotted a box of Frosted Flakes as well which may have to be tested soon but with all the sugar tax and talk of obesity I thought I would go for the supposedly healthier option but I guess there are a lot of sugar in all cereals. To be honest though these do not taste sugary at all so I'm impressed and I do tend to pop a bit of fruit on instead of adding sugar to try and stay healthy.
If you are on Slimming World a 25g portion will cost you 5 syns or you could try and work it into your HEB (healthy extra B choice). This cereal is milk free so if you are on a dairy free diet you can add your dairy free alternative to milk and enjoy, it also states it is suitable for vegetarians so all good.
I can totally recommend it so give it a try and let me know what you think too........not a bad price at £1.45 for 300g - all I can say is thank you Tesco!!
Thanks to you too for reading today, come back tomorrow for a chat about Autism on Autism Support Saturday but for now take care.
