We’re very lucky here in the UK that gluten free food is so readily available.
Free from aisle are bigger than they have ever been and so many brands have gluten free versions of their best products.
But is it too selfish that there are some products I WISH were gluten free?
While many gluten free alternatives are great, some of them just don’t cut it. I mean, how could you possible replace a Krispy Kreme?
It just wouldn't be the same if wasn’t made by them.
So I have constructed a wishlist of seven foods I wish were gluten free!
Are there any you would add to this list? I’d love to know in the comments below!
Krispy Kreme doughnuts
If there is one thing I actually dream about, it’s Krispy Kreme donuts.
There’s just nothing on the gluten free market like it and I would absolutely LOVE to try one.
I think if there were gluten free Krispy Kremes on the market I would a) cry and b) become morbidly obese and/or very poor, very quickly.
Please, please, PLEASE make some Krispy Kreme!!
I know there are plenty of gluten free noodle pots out there, but nothing could beat gluten free Super Noodles.
I used to be obsessed with the chicken Super Noodles pre coeliac disease diagnosis, and nothing out there is the same.
In fact, I find most of the gluten free instant noodle options really bland and tasteless. Which brings me on to…
Are gluten free egg noodles impossible to make?
I only ask because I have never, ever seen them before. Have you? I know there are lots of gluten free rice noodles but I do miss egg noodles so much.
The closest thing I have found is Oomi’s protein noodles, though they are made with fish so wouldn’t be suitable for vegetarians.
They’re delicious but expensive - I’d love to see gluten free egg noodles on the market.
I’m sick to death of seeing the ‘is Corona gluten free’ debate on Facebook and people saying it’s safe to drink.
The fact is, it’s not marked gluten free, and with so many gluten free beers now on the menu, it’s not hard to find an alternative.
I’ve been told Skinny Lager, which is gluten free, tastes very similar!
So can Corona please hurry up and make a gluten free Corona and settle this argument once and for all?
LARGE Domino’s pizzas
In fact, large gluten free pizzas anywhere would be great!
Does it drive anyone else insane that Domino’s only offer deals on their medium and large pizzas? And the gluten free pizzas are only small?
There is nothing more depressing (apart from no pizza) than sitting there with your tiny gluten free Domino’s while everyone else tucks into a feast.
Come on, I’m not gluten free through choice or for some ridiculous diet - I want to eat all the pizza!
Seriously, they offer gluten free buns in McDonald’s in so many European countries, so why can’t they do it here in the UK?
I’m hoping it’s only a matter of time before gluten free McDonald’s goes worldwide, and keeping my fingers crossed.
I mean, it’s probably a good thing it’s not as I work right next to one, but just being able to occasionally not have to eat a deconstructed, bunless McDonald’s burger with a plastic fork would be great.
I know by the very definition of their name, a gluten free version of Malteasers is highly unlikely.
However, wouldn’t it be great!? I really miss Malteasers (actually, add Twix and Lion Bars to this gluten free chocolate wishlist too) and wish they would make some gluten free.
It would be such a great little treat!
(And yes, I have had the Schar version of these which are very tasty, but they don't taste the same as Malteasers at all!)
What have I missed?
Are there any foods you really miss and desperately wish there was a gluten free version of?
Comment below and let me know if there are any I should add to my list!
And while you're here, you might also enjoy these posts too...
A gluten free snack box from the chipper. Deliciously unhealthy battered fried chicken was my favourite takeaway choice pre diagnosis. It's the only thing I can think of that I never seen any sort of gf alternative.
I'm lucky enough to live near one of the 4 branches of Villagepizza UK (South London). They do the best 11" GF pizzas!
The best donuts I have found so far can be ordered online from the Wheatfree Bakery in Scotland. I'm also looking forward to trying Doughnut Time GF donuts (London only) which they claim are coming soon.
I agree with you about the chocolate bars - a GF Double Decker would be fantastic!
Your list would be almost exact to mine!
Dominoes have now started including gluten free in some of their offers thank god but I do wish they would be bigger or offer some gf garlic bread so we can have a side with it!
I loved pot noodles pre coeliac so would love a gf version. I agree the noodle pots are so bland and tasteless.
I would like gf Greggs pasties- they can do a vegan one!!
Debbie, try https://freefromall.co.uk/products/lovemore-gluten-free-ochoco-biscuits
Almond croissant, Cornish pasty and licorice 🙁
Manna Dew bakery make the best gluten free croissants, including almond ones. Not cheap but worth a splurge every now and again.
Sorry, but Black Pudding and Faggots... Home food
You can now get gf Maltese’s just not made my Mars. I found them in the free from isle the other week in Asda, have yet to try them so can’t comment on taste.
Heinz hula hoops. I soo miss having these on toast 😭
Egg noodles annoys me as well as much as I like rice noodles they just aren’t the same.
Skinny Lager is a good one tho
Kentucky fried chicken, how hard is it to use gluten free flour instead of normal wheat flour, I know their chicken would be a whole lot crunchier if they did! 😊
Yes gluten free egg noodles, but you can get some rice noodles that are a bit more substantial, super noodles would be amazing if I was ten years younger, as would be any Heinz canned pasta.
All of the premium granola cereals.
Corona?! No need, there’s gluten free Peroni which I personally prefer to Corona.
Doughnuts, I’m probably healthier because they’re not gluten free.
