Free From Nasties

I’m part of a Tesco programme called Orchard where you can sample products for free or for less with vouchers they send. They recently sent me some vouchers for their Free From range.

This range offers gluten, wheat and dairy free products and though I’m not familiar with their whole Free From range I have been buying their coconut milk for a good 8 months now. I don’t drink dairy milk at all, not through an intolerance but just through choice, and now I prefer it (and so does my body!)

I decided to use my vouchers, not on the milk I usually buy, but to treat myself to a couple of their chilled desserts. I enjoyed them so much I had to share them with you!

indexTesco Free From Rich Choco Mousse Dessert (the old packaging is pictured) was literally the best chocolate mousse I’ve ever eaten. No exaggeration. I made so much noise whilst eating it that Gary told me off….. It was a lovely aerated but dense texture and the top is sprinkled with cocoa powder. The flavour was rich but not too rich and I basically licked the bowl clean. You couldn’t tell it was dairy free. It’s vegetarian so no gelatine concerns and it’s also gluten and wheat free. I felt positively virtuous eating it.

Next I tried their Creme Caramel Soya desserts.

Again these are vegetarian, which surprised me, dairy, gluten and egg free. They didn’t lose anything in their texture, were creamy and light with a nice wobble and the caramel sauce was delightful.

I have a couple of lactose intolerant friends, gluten intolerant friends and vegetarian friends and family, hence my insistence to share my findings. If you frequent Tescos and find yourself down the dairy aisle, give these a look. You won’t be disappointed!

I wasn’t asked to write this blog, I just really really wanted to share! I was able to get these items for free using the Tesco Orchard programme. Give it a try if you want to!

  1. I love the large range Tesco has gotten in over the past few months. How did you become part of the Tesco Orchard programme? It sounds like something I’d like to get involved with! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Haha! Sorry it took me too long to reply ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes I forgot to link Orchard in my blog but Google works too ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been able to sample quite a few things in the past and I get club card points for surveys and reviews too. I got a load of petrol vouchers on one of them ๐Ÿ™‚
