New Festive Free From range at the Co-op

For someone with Coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, Christmas can be a tricky time of the year, with the dreaded Christmas buffets being a cross contamination nightmare, and gluten free party food being non existent! There’s been so many occasions in the past where I’ve been at buffets where the only thing I can eat is carrot sticks, celery and hummus, it’s not an ideal situation! Luckily this year the Co-op is on hand to help, with it’s new Festive Free From range of delicious gluten free buffet food. From Tempura Prawns to Spring Rolls, and even Profiteroles, there really is something that everyone will enjoy, Coeliac or not! The best part is its all so delicious and so reasonably priced, with amazing offers on the frozen party food at 3 boxes for £6!

This range is absolutely perfect for me and my family, with there being 5 people who are Coeliac or gluten intolerant and of course with my dairy intolerance too. The Co-op Festive Free From range is all totally gluten free and the majority is also Free From dairy too, with the exception of the mozzarella sticks and chilli cheese bites. I used the range to make a delicious Christmassy buffet last weekend and it went down great! Here are my favourite products from the range.

Vegetable Spring Rolls

Gluten Free, Suitable for Vegans 

I honestly never thought I’d see the day where gluten free Spring Rolls are available to buy, plus they taste just as good as I remember (from 8 years ago!). The perfect buffet accompaniment especially with some sweet chilli dipping sauce. 

Indian Selection 

Gluten Free, Suitable for Vegans 

With a choice of Vegetable Pakoras and Onion Bhajis, this selection is another one of my favourites from the range which are both full of amazing flavour, and crisp up perfectly! 

Tempura Prawn Lollipops 

Gluten free

The sort of party food I’ve always dreamed of being able to eat, these Tempura Prawn Lollipops are delicious, crispy & full of flavour! 

Tempura Prawns 

Gluten free

A light crispy batter and a delicious middle, these Tempura Prawns were a huge hit even with my non coeliac family, so much so that we cooked up another box straight away!

Salted Caramel Profiteroles  

Gluten free, Milk free

Probably the product I’m most excited about, the sort of product you find in the supermarkets and immediately do a happy dance, gluten and dairy free Salted Caramel Profiteroles! These are absolutely delicious and would make the ideal Christmas day pudding. 

The Co-op also has plenty of other gluten free frozen party food products including Mozzarella Dippers, Chilli Cheese Bites, Cheese Bites and Cocktail Sausages plus an amazing range of gluten free Christmassy sweet treats including Mince Pies, Christmas Puddings, Free From Chocolates, Cupcakes, Gingerbread Men, Tiffin Slices and more! 

Tempted by the range? It is now available in selected Co-op stores across the UK in the frozen and free from aisles. To find out more, visit the Co-op’s website by clicking here. Leave me a comment and let me know which product you are most excited to try!

  1. Thank you! Been reading around your blog all afternoon and feeling really inspired! Just trying dairy free for the first time (after feeling very hesitant about it!) Been loosing some of my sense of smell recently and someone suggested it might make a difference! So helpful to see all your product reviews to see there are alternatives out there, that are good! Thanks for all your sharing! It is most appreciated! Even made hasselback potatoes inspired by you tonight! Thanks Anna
