Freego: Gluten free does not mean boring

20140707-105219-39139008.jpg

I was recently introduced to an online store called Freego
Freego only sells gluten free products, all suitable for those with gluten free diets. I myself do not have any sort of gluten intolerance or allergy, but there is no reason why I can’t sample the foods.
I was given a credit of £25 to spend on line.

Before I came across the Freego website, I like many people thought gluten free food was limited to bread and bagels, many of which taste bland or not that nice. So when I browsed through what Freego had, I was very surprised to find assortments of biscuits, pasta, ready meals, cracker breads and many kids treats, even ice lollies. All gluten free.
Freego puts every product through a panel test and also uses customer feedback in order to decide which products to sell. Many of the products get rejected. The trial and error is removed by Freego and they only sell the best tasting gluten free products.

I did spot a few familiar items which I have in the past samples through blogging. Mainly the Portlebay popcorn and the mylk cartons. I was quite amazed to see these products on sale. I did not realise the popcorn was gluten free.

A bag of this went straight in my shopping cart.

I thought the prices were fairly reasonable. It’s a common perception that gluten free products are considerably more expensive than other similar products. At Freego the majority of products seemed similar priced to similar items out there. The off few things were perhaps a little more expensive but on the whole the cost wasn’t too bad.

The checkout process is very easy. You sign up for an account which takes a few minutes, choose what you want and pay. The goods are delivered next day and you get emails to let you know the order has gone through.

I spent a bit more than £25 as there were lots of tempting produces which I just could not resist. Here is what I got.

I was very tempted by the biscuits and sweet things but as well as these I also got some pasta and some corn breads.
Here are the items I purchased. As you can see there is a lot here.

9bar Breakfast – Cashew & Cocoa
Cantucci alle Mandorle
Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookie
Organic Corn Cakes
Almond Butter
Brown Rice Pasta – Penne (an award winner)
Outback Animals Vanilla Cookies
Dobloni, Italian Biscuits
Chocolate Chip Cookie
Belgian Dark Chocolate Rice Cake Thins
Amaretti alle Mandorle
Belgian Chocolate Biscuit Cake
Crispy Bacon & Maple Syrup Popcorn (family pack)
Coconut + Pink Guava Fruit Ice (freeze at home)
Banana Bread Mix

I have a great selection of Italian style biscuits which taste great and really not much different to the ones found in any supermarket.

A box of animal shaped biscuits for the kids, which Izebella seems to love.

A banana bread/cake mix which we will probably make in the holidays, along with a packet of corn bread which will make great holiday snacks.

I really enjoyed these Kallo Chocolate rice thins. They didn’t last too long!

I got lots of other cookies and sweet chocolate treats too. All tasted amazing, hence why no more pictures as they have been eaten.
I also got some ice lollies for my children. These remind me of some similar ones I had as a child.
The lollies come in boxes of 10 and in many great fruity flavours. They contain coconut milk as well as real fruit juices and a much healthier choice than other ice creams. They taste lovely too.

I am very glad I came across the Freego site. Even tho I am lucky enough to not have gluten allergies or intolerance. I have been able to sample some great tasting and more healthier foods.

    Ooh, I’ve never heard of this before. My DD an myself are both gluten free and sourcing anything but the most basic foods can be quite a challenge. Thanks for sharing. #TriedTested

    This isn’t a bad idea to take advantage of the offer, I’ve wanted to try gluten free for a while to see if I feel a benefit… maybe now is the time to try if you enjoyed it?
