Glutafin Fibre rolls 4 pack £3.45 for 200g


These rolls are really tasty you can have them straight from the bag or bake them in the oven for five minutes to have them warm and crusty, we chose the second option and enjoyed them with the Meridian organic strawberry spread (See below). The rolls are Wheat, Gluten, and lactose free so they are idea for the coeliac although you would never believe it as they are really tasty, the price it quite expensive but around average for gluten free food.

I must admit it was really nice as a spread, Adam really enjoyed it and asked for it on his toast the following day. the spread is quite sweet and has a lot of flavour to it.
