Gluten and dairy free Christmas food in Sainsbury’s (updated for 2020)

gluten free christmas food sainsburys 2020

Following on from my first Free From Christmas instalment with my gluten and dairy free finds in Tesco, I can now bring you part two – my gluten and dairy free Christmas finds in Sainsbury’s!

Tesco was always going to be a hard one to beat, as it has launched SO many new Free From products in its festive range.

Sainsbury’s has a smaller range but I was once again particularly impressed with its range of stuffing and sausage-based foods.

Needless to say, I have already bought and demolished some of the pigs in blankets and they were lush!

I’ve already tried a few of these goodies, but here’s my guide to what Christmas food can find that’s gluten free in Sainsbury’s at the moment.

The below gluten free Sainsbury’s Christmas products have been updated for 2020…

Sainsbury’s gluten free chocolate orange cookies and cream

The gluten free world went nuts when Tesco introduced chocolate orange cookies and cream to their Christmas line-up last year.

And after making them a permanent fixture, it seems Sainsbury’s has followed suit.

The new Oreo-style chocolate orange cookies appear to be part of their Christmas range for 2020.

Sainsbury’s gluten free mini mince pies

Erm HOW CUTE are these mini gluten free mince pies from Sainsbury’s!?

This is another new product in their festive free from range and I absolutely love them.

These gluten and milk free mini mince pies would be perfect for a party or to stock up on for Father Christmas himself…

Sainsbury’s gammon and honey tortilla curls

This was actually the first Christmas food I bought in 2020 and I’m so pleased about my choice!

These gluten and milk free tortilla curls are amazing and perfect for any Christmas party platter!

Lightly salted Christmas tree tortilla chips

Another festive crisp choice here and one which I’ll definitely have to stock up on.

It’s all about the savoury treats for me and crisps and dip is my weakness – these sound perfect for Christmas gatherings!

Gluten free Christmas cake bites

I do love Christmas cake but sometimes it’s a bit too much for me.

Which is why these gluten free Christmas cake bites are perfect!

Just the right amount of festive cheeriness in each bite – and perfect for Christmas nibbles.

White Rabbit The Vegan Festive Feast pizza

gluten free christmas food sainsburys 2020

White Rabbit do hands down the BEST gluten free pizzas out there in UK supermarkets.

So I was very excited to spot this brand new festive vegan addition to their range in Sainsbury’s!

With vegan turkey, vegan cheese, winter veg, pumpkin puree and cranberries this gluten free pizza sounds right up my street.

Moo Free Original Santa and White Snowman chocs

I love seeing individual Christmas treats like these which would be perfect for children with allergies or coeliac disease!

These vegan, dairy free and gluten free chocolates look like a lovely stocking filler or festive treat.

I found them in the free from aisle in Sainsbury’s and I love the funky new Moo Free rebrand as well!

NOMO Caramel Filled Choc Drops

new gluten free finds october 2020

NOMO is definitely one of my favourite dairy free chocolate brands and these vegan and gluten free treats look divine.

Dairy free chocolate drops filled with caramel – sounds like the ultimate treat to me.

I think these might be part of the Christmas range but either way, you can find them in Sainsbury’s free from aisle.

Schär Spekulatius biscuits

gluten free christmas food sainsburys 2020

These spekulatius biscuits from Schär were a huge hit last year and I’m pleased to see them back again, this time in Sainsbury’s.

Last year they were only in Asda so it’ll be good to see if they pop up anywhere else.

Apparently they’re just like Lotus Biscoff – I really enjoyed them so am looking forward to grabbing some again this year before Christmas ends.

 

 

The below product listings have been updated for 2019…

Sainsbury’s free from choc, cherry & amaretto cookies

new gluten free products september october 2019

These gluten free choc, cherry and amaretto cookies from Sainsbury’s sound divine! They look like a proper grown-up treat and I love the snazzy new-look packaging too. These would make a lovely festive treat, perfect for a party platter or giving as a gift.

Free from cookie & shortbread selection

gluten free new products september 2019 5

I absolutely love a selection box and this cookies and shortbread selection box from Sainsbury’s sounds fantastic. The perfect mix of gluten free treats and great to stock up on for when you have family over or to give as a gift. The double chocolate ones look incredible.

Gluten free cranberry and orange mince pies

GLUTEN FREE CHRISTMAS FOOD

I am a HUGE mince pie fan but these gluten free cranberry and orange mince pies from Sainsbury’s look extra special! I love the pink dusting on top and the fact they’re a large, open-style mince pie. I found these in the free from aisle and am looking forward to trying them!

Sainsbury’s ginger tiffin bites

gluten free christmas food sainsburys 20201

These cute and sparkly little ginger tiffin bites from Sainsbury’s are gluten, wheat and dairy free and they look super festive. They’d be a great addition to a party spread, or just scoff the lot while you’re enjoying a festive evening at home!

Violife festive dairy free cheese platter

gluten free new finds 2019

How good is this festive cheese platter from Violife? It’s all dairy free and includes mature, smoked and garlic & chilli dairy free cheeses. Definitely stock up on this – I found it in Sainsbury’s chilled free from aisle.

Sainsbury’s dairy free chocolate Santas

gluten free new finds 2019

How cute are these! They’re gluten and dairy free and only £1 each so would make the perfect stocking fillers. I found them in the Christmas aisle in Sainsbury’s with the ‘normal’ chocolates.

Sainsbury’s gluten free gingerbread snowman

Another super cute new product! These little gingerbread snowmen in the free from aisle in Sainsbury’s would make a lovely present for a kid and are gluten and dairy free.

Sainsbury’s have both an iced and pastry-topped gluten free mince pie, so there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy!

Ah how cute are these little gingerbread people? They’re gluten free and vegan – I found them in the free from aisle in Sainsbury’s with the other Christmas food.

Rhythm 108 Chocolate Orange bar

If you’re missing Terry’s Chocolate Orange, you’re going to love this gluten free and vegan Swiss dark chocolate and orange bar from Rhythm 108. Found in the free from aisle in Sainsbury’s.

Sainsbury’s gluten free Christmas wrap

sainsburys gluten free christmas wrap

The Sainsbury’s gluten free Christmas wrap is a new one this year and it looks tasty. The Gluten Free Turkey Feast Wrap has the classic turkey and stuffing combo, and is dairy free as well. It doesn’t come as part of any meal deal, but then the Sainsbury’s gluten free sandwiches never seem to! 

Gluten free cheddar jalapeño sticks

gluten free sainsburys christmas 5

It’s so good to see Sainsbury’s have some more gluten free options in their party food range! Not all of the breaded items are gluten free but these jalapeño cheddar sticks are.

Mini cheese and bacon shells

gluten free sainsburys christmas

These mini cheese and bacon shells from Sainsbury’s sound delicious. I found them in the chilled party food season and I’ll definitely have to stock up!

Gluten free mozzarella sticks

I found these gluten free mozzarella sticks a little while ago and am so pleased they’re here to stay! These are in the chilled party food aisle.

Mini Thai salmon fishcakes

These are a really different idea for Christmas party food and sound amazing – these mini Thai salmon fishcakes are gluten free too!

Loaded BBQ jackfruit rostis

It’s brilliant to see some gluten free and vegan party food – most seems to be cheese or meat based! These BBQ jackfruit loaded rostis sound super interesting.

Firecracker chicken wings

Good news for spice fans, these firecracker chicken wings are gluten free, woohoo!

Dairy free Christmas cheeses

These gluten and dairy free cheeses would be fantastic for a cheeseboard. I love the festive packaging – there are blue cheese and cranberry options. Found in the chilled free from aisle.

Gluten free pork, cranberry and apple stuffing

gluten free christmas food sainsburys 2

I’ve really become a fan of fruit in savoury foods this year, when I always used to hate it! This gluten free pork, cranberry and apple stuffing sounded really interesting.

Gluten free pigs in blankets

Confession: I actually ate this pack about an hour before writing this post! They were so tasty – perfect on the dinner table, or my favourite is on cocktail sticks as part of a party platter! They also had chipolatas wrapped in bacon too, but these would be my sausage side of choice.

Gluten free pork, sage and onion stuffing balls

gluten free christmas food sainsburys 5

From what I can see, all of the stuffing and Taste the Difference sausage ranges are gluten free, which is great news. These look really cute and would be great on the dinner table on Christmas day. Pork, sage and onion is a classic combo, and they come in packs of 12 or 20.

British pork sausagemeat

gluten free christmas food sainsburys 4

The Taste the Difference sausagemeat is clearly labelled as gluten free, so if you want to make your own stuffing then do make sure you pick this up from the chilled aisle!

    I was in Aldi today and not only did they have a brand new gluten free section next to the freezers, but they also had gluten free mince pies and christmas pudding! I’d recommend you check it out – some great new brands and old favourites amongst the selection. Hope it’s here long term
