Gluten-free crumpets

Genius Gluten-Free Crumpets

There’s something very comforting about a hot cuppa and a toasted crumpet with a thick layer of butter and loads of honey that melts and seeps through the spongey centre making a syrupy mess. So now we’re delighted to have a few gluten-free choices available that I can strongly recommend to you.

A friend with a 9 year old daughter with coeliac disease discovered M&S’s made without wheat crumpets and raved to us about how good they are. We rushed out to try some and can vouch for the fact that they are really tasty. They do need to be toasted for quite a while longer than you’d usually except. Their website advertises them at an eye watering £6.99 but I’m sure we haven’t paid that much in store. (Update*: yep, they’re £1.79 in store making them cheaper than Genius at £2.19).

Last week I was also lucky enough to stumble across a stall handing out Genius bread. I raced up to try their toasted fruit loaf and told the lady that my boyfriend had coeliacs. I asked if they had any samples to give out and she gave me two huge loaves of bread and a packet of crumpets to try because they’re new to the range (Thank you SO MUCH, Genius!). We think the crumpets are delicious and probably pip the M&S crumpets at the post. At £2.19, they’re a tad more expensive than M&S*. All this talk is making me hungry so I’m going to have one now.

The Genius crumpets are now available at Sainsbury’s and Asda stores. M&S crumpets are available at selected stores or can be ordered online and delivered to your nearest store.
