Review: Tesco Golden Syrup Pancakes

Free From Products

Tesco’s free from range is now easily marked up, to show what products are free from.

These pancakes are easy to spot as being gluten, wheat and milk free. 

The pancakes are also freezable, so easy to keep some in the freezer as a handy snack.


The pancakes come in a pack of six. They are thick, and actually hold together well. The golden syrup flavour is not too strong, there is just a hint of it. However I have found they are not too sweet to have with jam.


I love pancakes, and these are definitely no different. Cheaper than other branded versions, Tesco’s have produced a nice tasting product.

I tend to have mine coated in lots of dairy free butter (Vitalite), but have recently tried them with alternative toppings.

An amazing one, was bacon and maple syrup. Not healthy, but amazingly good.

Tesco Free From Porridge Pot

Free From Products

Breakfast is pretty much my favourite meal of the day.

Being a coeliac makes it a little harder, as I can’t have quite as many things. This is worse when it comes to needing to get something ‘on the go’

There have been a number of porridge pots that have come out recently that are ‘gluten free’ unfortunately they had milk powder in. Meaning they were still  not suitable for me.

Whilst browsing the latest additions in Tesco. I came across this delightful find….


Yes, that’s right!!! 

An instant porridge that is free from gluten, wheat and dairy!!!

After a moment of utter excitement I filled my basket up with these, and other new finds I had spotted.

The labelling on Tesco’s free from range is nice and clear. To make it easy to spot what products contain.

I have since tried two pots of this porridge. It doesn’t beat porridge made at home, but it’s a quick and easy alternative that can be taken for breakfast on the go.

The syrup flavour is not too strong, it gives the porridge just enough sweetness that it doesn’t need any extra sugar.

It does need to be stirred properly and I found that leaving it for slightly longer once water was added before opening the lid again, gave a much better texture.

Definitely worth grabbing a few as an emergency food source when out.
