“Free From” goods are important for many households… and while they’re not specifically needed for me or my hubby, a couple of people in our family do have intolerances and allergies that mean we have come across Mrs Crimbles before.
The 20-year old bakery are well known for wheat-free (and mostly gluten free) cakes and treats – and they sent me some of the range of macaroons to try out.
Sweet, moist and full of coconut – these are a traditional coconut macaroon, and they are really lovely. While these are the “basic” recipe there is nothing “plain” about them. Just yummy from first to last bite.
These are a new edition to the range, perfect for the festive season. They are, as I’m sure you can work out, coconut macaroons with cranberries added… a simple idea. They taste really good, but I’m not 100% convinced the cranberry enhances the “plain” version. I think if I had to choose I’d go for the traditional ones over these, but they are a nice alternative.
Apparently Britain’s best selling macaroon (selling more than one a second!), these are traditional coconut macaroons dipped and drizzled in chocolate. Yum and so perfect with a cuppa.
Of the three flavours I tried the traditional “plain” coconut macaroons are definitely the best – with the chocolate ones and cranberry ones coming in after. All three make a really nice sweet snack perfect to accompany a cup of tea.
And of course is something tastes good, it doesn’t matter to me if they’re “Free From” or not – but it’s a great bonus for those who have an issue with wheat or gluten. You can get them pretty much anywhere including farm shops and major supermarkets priced at £1.49 for six.
