Review: Fria gluten free mini baguette

Free From Products

I’m in love with Fria products, found on Ocado. I have found their range of frozen items perfect for me.

Their rolls, mini baguettes and cakes are brilliant. I know I can always grab one out of the freezer, and not have to worry how long they’ve been in the bread bin for. Or check if they’ve gone stale or mouldy.
 

The Fria products all come in the same sort of packaging. Unfortunately they don’t do larger bags. These rolls come in a bag of four.

They’re pre-baked unlike other brands, so I can just take them out the freezer and either leave to defrost. Or I quickly defrost in the microwave.

The best thing about the Fria rolls is that they actually remind me of the smell of fresh rolls. They have a crunchy crust and soft inside and are as close to normal bread as I’ve managed to get.


Unlike with other products, they are sturdy and thick. They do not fall apart when trying to cut in half. These baguettes are full of seeds as well, for an extra bit of crunchiness in the roll.


Although not particularly large, they are the perfect size for sausages. 

These, and Fria’s rolls are one of my staples on Ocado orders. I sincerely hope that other supermarkets will start to get them in.

Valsoia Cherry & Cream Soya Ice Cream

Free From Products

For those of you who have read through my previous reviews, I recently reviewed a Chocolate & Cream ice cream made by Valsoia. 

After the utterly moreish experience with the chocolate & cream flavour, I didn’t hesitate on trying others.

Ocado have a variety of Valsoia products, these are focused on being dairy free. However a few of these items are also gluten free. Just be sure to check before tucking in, as things like the Ice cream sandwiches, or pizza will not be suitable for coeliacs (much to my disappointment)

My latest order from Ocado contained the Valsoia Cherry & Cream dairy free ice cream.


I knew what to expect, having eaten the other flavour on offer. But I was still excited to get the lid off of this delight!

On a boring note, the tub is much easier to access than others without risking broken nails. You simply push the tab down, then just lift it up.

Once the lid is off, you are greeted with a delicious looking ice cream.


Much like the Chocolate version, the ice cream was extremely soft, smooth and light. The cherry is not overly sweet, tasting like real cherries (as opposed to flavourings) and adds an excellent contrast to the ice cream.

It was too easy to eat a very large amount of this, and seeing as the tub is not on the extra large size…. I will have to ration myself! 

I am so happy to find a delicious flavoured dairy free ice cream, that also tastes amazing!!!

This year has been a good year for companies bringing out new free from ice creams.

I’ve┬ádefinitely eaten far too much of it this Summer. Unfortunately for my waist size I have just come across this make on Ocado.

There were a couple of different flavours, but I opted for the chocolate and cream.

Inside were two halves. One side chocolate and one side the ‘cream’. I was expecting a tough ice cream so shoved my spoon in with some force, to be pleasantly surprised that it’s creamy texture scooped up easily.

My bowl of ice cream unfortunately lasted a very short amount of time. It was so deliciously soft and creamy. It was gone in seconds.

The chocolate flavour had small bits in it, which gave it an interesting texture. The ‘cream’ flavour reminded me a little of getting Mr Whippy ice creams when I was a child.

A fantastic dairy (and gluten) free ice cream. Completely different to any other options available.
