Last Saturday I attended the allergy and freefrom show in London, Olympia for the very first time and it was amazing! I have been Coeliac for nearly 8 years now but had never really heard of the show until I started my gluten free Instagram page and I have to say that I have been missing out! The show was for anyone living with allergies, intolerances, eczema or coeliac disease, or living ‘free from’ gluten, wheat, eggs, nuts or dairy. It was full of hundreds of different speciality stalls where you could taste amazing free from food and try numerous different products as well as talk to specialists. The show was sponsored by Schar and everyone attending was given a goodie bag full of freefrom products!
Throughout the day I tried numerous different freefrom foods . I’m so used to only having 1 or 2 gluten and milk free choices when eating out or trying to find lunch on the go, but I could eat about 90% of the food at the show – How amazing! For lunch I picked up a gluten free, dairy free and vegan wrap from the Baba Ghanoush street food stand made using Bfree wraps, falafel, hummus, lettuce, peppers and more! I also had to try a Yorica moments dairy free ice-cream – I have seen this brand on Instagram but as I’m not from London, I have never had the chance to try them. I had the strawberry flavour and it was incredible! – I now want to try all the flavours but was too full at the time – Looks like another trip to London is in order!
Whilst at the show I had the opportunity to talk to so many different freefrom brands and I managed to accumulate quite the haul! Everything was being sold at discounted prices and I was also very kindly given some free samples, so overall I only spent about £25 including lunch! Here’s some of the products I picked up whilst at the show:
Overall, I had the best time at the Allergy and Freefrom show where I got the chance to meet lots of lovely brands and bloggers. I’m already looking forward to next years show!
