#newburnbakehouse #glutenfree product review – #miniwholegrainwraps

So on my last blog I mentioned that I was very excited as I had been chosen to receive a new gluten free product to review by Newburn Bakehouse.  Well all this week I have been trying their new mini multi grain wraps!

As you can see from the photo they contain various grains all suitable on a gluten free diet.

There are 6 in a packet and retail price is £2.99.  They are available on line and in most retail stores. 

My first taste was for lunchtime.  Simply filled with tuna in a Marie Rose Sauce.  Due to their size they cannot be overfilled so please bear this in mind when making a wrap to roll or fold.  This is how mine turned out.

They taste nice but the taste completely changed when toasted. I attempted to make a tostada but my results were messy – hence no photos but the wraps toasted extremely well. An experience and experiment that I’m going to try again!

They are also brilliant for ripping up and dunking in soup.

Since I wanted to get my hands on some more I went to big Sainsbury and spied another Newburn product that I’ve not seen  or heard off before. I’m now asking why because it’s amazing!

White Sourdough Artisan Bread. It looks like a proper bread loaf you know the type you find in a proper bakery.  I decided that I needed to treat this with a bit of respect. Perfect for doorstop bacon sandwiches but since there was no bacon in the house only eggs I made a fried egg (dry fried) sandwich.

How gorgeous! Xxxx

OH got a piece to try and his remarks were “it’s proper bread”! 🙂  What can I  say?

Well done Newburn and thank you for letting me try your new product. Keep up the good work and I hope to be trying something new soon 🙂

#Gluten-Free products review

You may have seen being advertised by Newburn the Gluten-Free arm of Warburtons, Gluten-Free wraps. Now I’ve never experienced any wraps before so was keen to try them out. I hunted high and low in all the larger stores of the major supermarkets and yet couldn’t see them. I think the hype of “vote to save” them on the Bakery’s Facebook page was assisting in their scarcity. However I was lucky enough to find one packet on my travels! I know we pay extra for gluten-free food but I do think the price of £3 for a packet of 3 wraps is a little on the pricey side. You can get a loaf for the same price! Also each wrap is high on the calorie side 216 cals per wrap. Depending on brand a slice of bread works out at approx 80 so for a sandwich minus filling it works out at about 160. But is it worth it?

Well they are large.

So I filled it and wrapped it like so:

The verdict? Well they are quite squishy and chewy. They remind me of a pizza base, and there is a recipe on the back telling you how to do this. They are also filling. I found then very tasty so will buy them again as a treat. They can be frozen, which is a bonus. So well done Warburtons – keep up the good work!

The other thing I’ve tried this week is “Biscuit breaks” by Nairns They are similar (I guess) to the Brevita ones.

I tried the oats and fruit. The look reminded me of the old style digestives biscuits that I had as a child. They tasted nice but a little hard. They are dunkable and I would recommend it to dunk them in into a hot mug of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. These biscuits are useful if you can’t have breakfast or as a snack. I did have them for a late breakfast and they did keep me going till lunch. I’m keen to try the other flavours and I will keep some in the cupboard as a back up. Again keep up the good work!

Blessings! 😀
